St James unveils new Show House at St Catherine's Place

Leading residential developer, St James is set to showcase its new Show Home within this collection of luxury family townhouses at St Catherine's Place, Jerningham Road, SE14. The special Open House event is to take place from 4pm - 8pm on the evening of Thursday 27th September, and from 11am - 4pm on Saturday 29th September 2012.

An exclusive collection of just nine Victorian style four / five bedroom houses, St Catherine's Place is situated in the heart of the Telegraph Hill Conservation Area and just a short distance from Telegraph Hill Park, with its beautiful hill-top views of the City of London and iconic buildings such as Canary Wharf and St Paul's Cathedral. In addition to Telegraph Hill Park there are other green open spaces such as Fordham Park (which underwent a full regeneration two years ago), an ideal sporting ground for families with children. These also provide good recreation facilities as well as a variety of cycling routes and walking trails.

The homes at St Catherine's Place provide the perfect environment for families wishing to live in luxuriously-designed spacious homes in a close knit community and in a well-connected part of London. Of particular benefit are the private rear gardens which are a rare feature these days being so close to central London.

A report from The Department for the Environment, Fisheries and Rural Affairs (DEFRA) estimates that by 2020, 2.6 million British homes will be without private gardens. (1) DEFRA also mentions that a recent study of over 350,000 people found that people who lived near to green space lived longer and health inequalities were significantly reduced (2).

The development is also on the doorstep of a variety of high achieving schools such as Edmund Waller Primary School, and Haberdashers' Aske's Hatcham College, perfect for those wanting the best education for their children.



Each home offers around 1,925 sq foot of family living at prices which are more favourable than other well-known areas of London, without sacrificing on quality, and a significant reduction in stamp duty compared to other similar sized properties in London.

Only a few miles away from Central London and just minutes from London Bridge, New Cross Gate station and tube is within walking distance of St Catherine's Place and is fast becoming the area of choice for many who work in or near the City. Commuting is quick and easy taking only minutes on the train to London Bridge or the City. Goldsmith's University has also recently revived many historic buildings and the area now has a vibrant arts, leisure and culture scene.

Paul Hopkins, Managing Director of St James, says: "St Catherine's Place is the ideal development for those with young families, who have found that they can buy a fantastic family home at a competitive price in this hidden jewel of London. The choice of prestigious primary and secondary schools, fantastic gardens, surrounding parkland and comfortable family living make St Catherine's Place particularly appealing".

The Victorian architecture of St Catherine's Place beautifully reflects the architecture of the older style properties within the Telegraph Hill Conservation Area. The high quality, elegant and contemporary interiors and fixtures throughout St Catherine's Place have been designed with the discerning owner in mind and to meet the demands of a busy, modern day lifestyle.

The development is also only a short walking distance from Goldsmiths College and within easy travelling distance of Greenwich University and Lewisham College. Situated just a short way from Blackheath and the historic town of Greenwich, local landmark attractions include the National Maritime Museum, the Royal Naval College and the Royal Observatory with sweeping views across the River Thames.

Prices for St Catherine's Place development start from £975,000.
