Four brand new apartments have been released for sale at the flagship St James development Grosvenor Waterside - a highly sought after collection of luxury apartments close to Chelsea Bridge just a short walk from Sloane Square, the King's Road and the convenience of Victoria station.
Following eight years' construction, Grosvenor Waterside comprises eight dramatic buildings, each drawing upon the creativity of several architectural practices: MAKE, Broadway Malyan, Sheppard Robson, Twigg Brown Architects, Finlay Harper, Allies and Morrison, Reid Architects and EPR Architects. Each one has a distinctive individual design and oozes visual appeal, drawing inspiration from its surroundings by using a range of natural and bespoke materials to replicate and enhance the environment.
The four brand new properties are located in Moore House, designed by Sheppard Robson. They include 2 x one bedroom apartments (516 / 538 sq ft), 1 x two bed apartment, (979 sq ft) and a spacious 3 bedroom apartment (1,377 sq ft). The stylish homes will be finished with the exceptional specification, high quality fixtures and fittings and superb attention to detail synonymous with St James.
The apartments are located on the ground floor and will each benefit from their own dedicated front door and own private terrace - the larger apartments boast terraces over 40ft in length. Secure car parking spaces are available to purchase in the underground car park - a huge premium in the locality.
Paul Hopkins, Managing Director, St James Group explains: "Demand for properties at Grosvenor Waterside has been consistently high since the launch ten years ago. The stunning waterside setting in the heart of Chelsea, striking architecture enhanced by outstanding art work, sympathetic landscaping and close proximity to good transport links all add to the appeal. As a result, the turnover of residents at Grosvenor Waterside is very low. Units infrequently come up for resale on the development, and there is a huge waiting list for those that do.
"It's also very rare for brand new properties to come on the market within the surrounds of this established community. These are the first new apartments to be released by St James since 2009, so we anticipate they will be snapped up quickly.
"The standard of living at Grosvenor Waterside is of the highest quality and that's something that is evident as soon as you step onto the development. With fantastic facilities catering for the discerning Chelsea resident including: a luxurious spa and fitness centre; the exclusive Purple Dragon private children's club; the award-winning luxury furniture shop and architectural design service, Staffan Tollgard; and convenience of a Sainsburys store. With an artisan bakery and other openings coming soon, the community is sophisticated, yet extremely welcoming," Hopkins concluded.
