Hurlingham Walk, from developer St James, is a modern interpretation of a traditional classic. This luxurious collection of 53 private apartments has been designed to echo the grand façades of West London's traditional Edwardian and Victorian mansion block architecture becoming the first new build mansion style development to join Fulham's architectural landscape since the 1930's.

Today, mansion blocks are reported to be amongst the most coveted properties in the capital, particularly by more traditional British buyers. Robert Stewart, Manager at Hamptons, comments: "Mansion blocks particularly attract purchasers for their style and elevated character, but the high annual service charges for maintenance and shared bill payments for older style properties can sometimes lessen the appeal.

"With so many modern and contemporary style apartments appearing across the capital over the last few years, the elegance of the new properties at Hurlingham Walk, which combine traditional style with the convenience and economical efficiencies of a new build home, will make a refreshing change for today's London property hunters," Stewart concluded.

Hurlingham Walk offers a range of one and two bedroom apartments and a handful of two, three and four bedroom penthouses. All the homes benefit from high ceilings, floor to ceiling French windows, and each has its own private, fully-lit balcony or terrace, offering plenty of opportunity to socialise alfresco during the summer months. Much coveted services include a dedicated concierge, 24-hour security, a private landscaped garden with infinity pond and courtyard and gated basement parking - unheard of in traditional mansion block apartments.

Behind the elegant exterior, the apartments will be finished to an exceptional specification, with quality fixtures and fittings including under floor heating throughout, comfort cooling to the living rooms and bedrooms, marble detailing to bathrooms, chrome ironmongery and feature architraves and skirting. Generous living accommodation will be spread across carefully considered open-plan layouts, with custom-designed European kitchens featuring integrated Siemens appliances.

Contemporary living rooms are fitted with engineered Timber flooring and the latest communications and technology equipment to suit the ever-changing modern lifestyle, with the option to upgrade to a full sound system if desired. Bathrooms are also custom-designed in two colourway options, with Villeroy and Boch sanitaryware, marble detailing to vanity units and bath panels, heated wall panels and towel rails, Hansgrohe showerhead and brassware and heated floor.

The new homes are located close to a number of riverside parks and gardens, as well as a multitude of some of the capital's finest bars and restaurants. Just a stone's throw from the River Thames, the exclusive Hurlingham Club and a short walk from Parsons Green, the development's enviable location in a tranquil corner of the capital offers relaxed modern living combined with the charm and convenience of a London village atmosphere. This corner of South Fulham is poised for a transformation over the coming years with its status of the South Fulham Regeneration zone. Hurlingham Walk and the future phase of the St James scheme is leading the transformation opportunity.

Excellent schools in the catchment area offer a highly-prized education, with a wide choice of both private and state schools, including the bilingual l'Ecole Marie d'Orliac (linked to the Lycée Française Charles de Gaulle), Thomas's Fulham, the Hurlingham & Chelsea School, Lady Margaret School and the London Oratory School. Leading universities nearby include University College, Imperial College and The London School of Economics.

The two-bedroom apartments are priced from £740,000.
