"We at St James take great pride in the work that we do and the homes we provide. These awards are a reflection of the dedication and commitment by our staff to create truly outstanding homes and I would like to dedicate these awards to all the teams and thank them for the hard work they do."

St James's attention to detail is clearly evident across all of its developments. Roehampton House has been meticulously refurbished into in an unparalleled collection of luxurious 2 and 3 bedroom apartments within an exceptional Grade I listed building. Roehampton House was originally designed in 1712 by Thomas Archer and further enhanced by the famous Edwardian architect Sir Edwin Lutyens in 1910, offering a rare chance to own a unique place in British history. The superb amenities compliment this prestigious property including two acres of private gardens, gymnasium, secure underground parking, estate manager and wine cellar.

Lime Grove Mews in Shepherds Bush is a gated development of Regency-style townhouses and apartments that have transformed what was previously a council depot site. The five-storey houses have an abundance of space and a thoughtfully-designed layout, allowing flexibility and free-flowing multi-use family space - for living, dining and relaxing. Once through the double-width entrance door that gives a real sense of arrival, the thoughtfully-arranged space encompasses a light-filled family room in the basement with bi-folding doors that unites seamlessly with the garden. As you ascend to each floor the arrangement of rooms include large reception, laundry, study, four bedrooms and a delightful winter garden and hideaway terrace at the top of the house.

Lime Grove Mews is now sold out and the Marketing Suite closed. There are 3 apartments remaining at Roehampton House with prices starting from £1,350,000 for a two bedroom apartment and £1,850,000 for a three bedroom.
