Providing Homes in the Home of England Rugby

Award winning developer, St James, is set to launch Brewery Wharf, a brand new collection of contemporary, high specification homes in the popular commuter location of Twickenham on Saturday 28th and Sunday 29th June. The new development will offer a mixture of 28 gated luxury houses and 71 one and two bedroom apartments for sale. The June launch date will see the release of the apartments from the on site Sales and Marketing Suite, complete with a 2-bedroom show apartment.

Set within the Borough of Richmond upon Thames, Twickenham is best known for its world famous rugby stadium. The area is much sought after due to its excellent transport links, green open spaces, outstanding schools, beautiful riverside walks and cultural heritage. A public piazza has been incorporated into the design of Brewery Wharf that will include an attractive water feature and two restaurants - expanding upon the fantastic choice of bars and eateries on the doorstep. Situated directly opposite Twickenham train station, Brewery Wharf is in a prime location for travelling in and out of the capital with regular trains into Waterloo every 10 minutes at peak time and taking just 26 minutes. The fabulous shops, restaurants and amenities of Richmond are just 4 minutes' away by rail. Trains depart every six minutes.

With the homes at Brewery Wharf available to purchase off-plan, the development offers an opportunity for prospective purchasers looking to invest in high quality bricks and mortar in a thriving area undergoing major regeneration. If current market conditions continue in line with analyst predictions, buying a property 'off plan' will allow buyers to secure a property at today's market prices, with the potential for an increase in the capital value of the property prior to completion.

The site boasts an interesting history - a former brewery and more recently a Post Office sorting depot. Brewery Wharf has therefore been designed with an architectural style sympathetic to both the surrounding area as well as the site's industrial heritage. Subtle industrial-style features such as coffered ceilings in the living rooms and the use of exposed brickwork to the entrance foyers bring a sense of heritage to the apartments, whilst the bespoke designed kitchens and gated underground parking offer the ultimate in modern convenience.

Paul Hopkins, Managing Director of St James Group (North), comments: "In our experience, innovative architectural design and creative communal landscaping are just as essential as excellent build quality and location in any of our developments. Just as new residents look to settle in with their neighbours, we feel that the developments should also fulfil a similar purpose."

"Brewery Wharf will be the first significant new build development in the area of this size and scale for many years, so we have designed it not only to create a desirable place to live, but also to have a positive impact on its locality."

"Given the number of enquiries we have already received from the hoardings surrounding the building works, there is definitely an appetite for new homes in Twickenham" Hopkins concluded.

The properties are priced from £465,000. To register your interest and book your appointment, visit or contact the St James Sales Team on 020 3002 9457.
