Leading developer, St James unveiled the last release of apartments available to first time buyers 30% below market values at a special launch last weekend. The city suite apartments, eligible to first time buyers living or working in Hammersmith and Fulham, are situated at Lime Grove Mews, Stowe Road in Shepherd's Bush.

The two day event saw home ownership become affordable for a number of first time buyers in Hammersmith and Fulham with more than 40 visitors attending the weekend and around a quarter of those placing reservations for these private discounted properties. As a result, only a handful of discounted properties now remain.

The reduction in values was made possible by the Hammersmith and Fulham Council's Discount Market Sale (DMS). DMS is a low cost home ownership product where a new build property is purchased at a discounted price, usually around 70 percent of the market value.

Paul Hopkins, Managing Director of St James commented, "We were pleased with the demand we experienced at the final release of DMS apartments and the number of reservations made. I would urge those who are looking to buy in the borough at a discounted price, without compromising on quality, to contact us to take advantage of the limited remaining DMS properties in this one-off opportunity.

It is such a fantastic development if you are looking for a home at a discounted rate without compromising on quality - Westfield is nearby, transport links are very close and there is a real vibrancy to this well located part of London [LH1]."

Lime Grove Mews offers buyers the opportunity to live in a beautiful apartment or house set within a gated mews. The homes offer a ten year NHBC (National House-Building Council) warranty and two year St James warranty to provide an assurance of quality.

The Regency style architecture features mellow brickwork, which reflects the surrounding vernacular. With the classic combination of London stock brick, render/stone detailing and reconstituted slate roofs, their timeless façade is sympathetic to older style properties that many buyers find attractive. The Interiors, on the other hand, have been intelligently designed for the ultimate 21st century living experience and enjoy high specification fixtures and fittings throughout.

Buyers at Lime Grove Mews will also benefit from an incredible choice of every convenience on their doorstep. The arrival of the nearby iconic Westfield shopping centre is the capital's spectacular shopping quarter as one of Europe's largest retail destinations.

The boutiques and bistros of Notting Hill are also just a short distance away. From the timeless tranquility of the riverside at Hammersmith to the verdant oasis of Holland Park, the charms of Chiswick High Road to the delights of Portobello Market, Lime Grove Mews is within easy reach of a variety of world renowned sights and attractions.

The Lime Grove Mews Development is located in London Underground Zone 2, and offers some of the best transport links in London. Lime Grove Mews is a short distance from the Central Line with Shepherds Bush station or the Hammersmith and City Line from Goldhawk Road nearby. The recent opening of Shepherd's Bush overland train station also connects services from Clapham Junction and the South Coast to Willesden Junction in the North. Close to The Broadway Shopping Centre which operates a 24 hour bus station. The Lime Grove Mews development offers accessibility to several major motorways leading to London and beyond. For international travel, the closest airport is Heathrow which services flights across the globe.
