LONDON: September 2016

Brewery Gate, by St James, today unveils a new showhome in the heart of Twickenham. The launch of the new four-bedroom showhome marks the release of an exclusive collection of 28 spacious four and five-bedroom family homes set within a gated mews, with private gardens and courtyard parking, all moments from Twickenham station and the area's treasured town centre.

A prized location

Located in a prized location in Twickenham, a stone's throw from the train station and neighbouring the River Crane, Brewery Gate offers the best of town and country - with beautiful open spaces from Richmond Park to Marble Hill and stunning riverside walks. Twickenham is a sought-after location for families and young professionals; it is ideal for those seeking a safe place to call home amid a lively social scene, that is also well-connected to central London and the south west - just 25 minutes from Waterloo by rail. The development has proven popular with locals and buyers familiar with the area, with many having lived in the surrounding areas throughout their lifetime.

Contemporary yet classical design

Each home combines the elegance of a traditional mews house with modern living and a contemporary specification. Taking inspiration from the mansions of nearby Marble Hill and Strawberry Hill, the classically-styled properties reflect the area's heritage, incorporating traditional façades, grand porticos and large tiled entrance halls.

The four-bedroom showhome spans four floors. Considered design and open-plan living are complemented by outdoor spaces, including a first-floor terrace balcony and a private garden. Interior design by Killer 5 2 introduces a subtle palette of contemporary tones with distinctive detailing, creating a luxurious home with a welcoming, family feel.

The first floor living area and guest bedroom follow a formal design. Glass and chrome offer a contrast to the natural wood of the kitchen-dining area, which features a calming backdrop of grey, ivory and taupe with accents of charcoal. The upper floors offer a more contemporary design with an eclectic range of finishes from natural wood to brushed metal. Each of the bedrooms has a distinct quality; the master bedroom, for example, adopts an oriental-influence, with an oversized, bespoke chesterfield headboard while the second bedroom features a vintage rugby theme throughout, inspired by the home of England rugby.

Sean Ellis, Chairman of St James, commented:

"Brewery Gate offers a rare new-build home in an area that is characterised by its Georgian and Victorian period properties. Twickenham is well-established as a place to put down roots. This development benefits from a central setting in a loved location, and combines the charm of a London suburb with the benefits of modern living. We've seen the development attract young families and a number of buyers have chosen to upsize from our one and two-bedroom apartments within the development to a large family home.

"We are proud of having brought this part of Twickenham to life with the addition of the new piazza, and cultural venue - which will both contribute hugely to this vibrant local community."

Character and culture

Every convenience is on the doorstep, with a diverse range of retail from popular high-street brands to boutiques, as well as friendly gastro-pubs, restaurants, and artisan cafés. Church Street - the 'beating heart' of Twickenham, less than 10 minutes' walk from Brewery Gate - is the centre of a local festival scene. There are a number of excellent nursery, primary and secondary schools in the area, including the new St Richard Reynolds Catholic School (rated Outstanding by Ofsted), which is within walking distance of the development.

Two new restaurants and a central public piazza will also be delivered as part of the scheme. A new cultural venue with seating for up to 350 people will also be provided, and will offer a new home for film showings, touring theatre companies and community arts and culture projects.

Prices start from £1,550,000 for a four-bedroom home, with completions scheduled for early next year (2017). Please visit the website at to register your interest, or call 020 3642 9714 for more information.
