Award winning developer, St James, a proud member of the Berkeley Group, is unveiling its latest property offering, with the launch of Emerald Square in Roehampton, South West London.
The launch is taking place in Singapore on 13th - 15th April at the Shangri La Hotel. This collection of one and two bedroom apartments is being launched internationally ahead of its UK release, and will offer an exclusive opportunity for purchasers and investors to gain a unique foothold in one of the world’s most sought after property markets.
Great transport links into town
Emerald Square is ideally situated for London commuters. Barnes railway station is only a mile away, providing direct trains to Clapham Junction in 9 minutes; Waterloo in 20 minutes; The City (Bank) in 33 minutes and Canary Wharf in 43 minutes, and East Putney underground station is close by. Residents can reach the heart of one of the world’s most exciting capitals in less than half an hour.
Sean Ellis, Chairman of St James, said: “Emerald Square offers an excellent opportunity for investors looking for properties that would appeal to young professionals wanting a short commute to work, combined with easy access to green spaces like Richmond Park and Wimbledon Common. And with Roehampton University right on the doorstep, it will also appeal to international students too.”
Emerald Square is a stunning collection of one and two bedroom apartments together with four bedroom houses. The first phase comprises striking apartments which combine inspired architecture with stylish contemporary living. Most apartments have their own private balcony or terrace and benefit from secure basement or off-street car parking as well as beautifully landscaped gardens.
All the apartments are finished to a very high specification. Each comes complete with a fully fitted kitchen with matching upstand and stainless steel splashback; Siemens appliances include a built-in oven, touch control induction hob and microwave; a Siemens fridge freezer and dishwasher and Siemens washer/dryer. The entrance hall, living and dining room are all finished with wood flooring. Whilst the bedrooms come fully carpeted, with the master suite complete with a fitted wardrobe. The bathrooms are furnished with elegant white Villeroy & Boch sanitaryware and Hansgrohe chrome fittings and include a full height mirror or built-in mirrored storage cabinet with integral shaver point. Lighting in the apartments includes chrome downlights to hall, kitchen, living/dining room, bathroom and ensuite, and an external light on the balcony too.
Barnes railway station is a mile away, providing connections to Clapham Junction and Waterloo. East Putney underground station is also nearby, on the boundary of Travelcard Zones 2 and 3, making travel into and out of London very easy. Bus services are also plentiful, with no less than four routes running past the front of the development. Emerald Square benefits from the A3 and A4 transport links for commuting by car into London, while the A3 or M4 will take you to the M25 network. For air travel, Heathrow is 14 miles away, London City is 17 miles away and Gatwick is 32 miles away.
Leafy community with excellent sports facilities
Emerald Square is perfectly positioned to enjoy the leafy community of South West London with easy access to the River Thames. It is surrounded by the verdant delights of Barnes Common, whilst the lush landscape of Richmond Park offers a scenic setting in which to relax and enjoy a host of outdoor activities. Roehampton boasts no less than three attractive parkland golf courses in the immediate area and has the added bonus of Roehampton’s own exclusive sports club right on its doorstep. The Roehampton Club is a private members’ sports club set in 100 acres of parkland with an impressive array of facilities including squash courts, dance studios and indoor swimming pool. It is ideally located within easy reach of some of the most sophisticated urban villages in London including Barnes, Wimbledon and Richmond. Nearby Barnes village is the epitome of relaxed English rural charm, despite being just 30 minutes from the centre of London.
Wimbledon is so much more than simply a setting for the world-famous tennis tournament; elegant designer stores, independent boutiques and chic cafes sit amongst handsome period buildings and open spaces.
The three stylish apartment buildings have views over the university campus and towards Richmond Park. With landscaped gardens and communal green spaces, Barnes House and Richmond House have dedicated overground parking, while Petersham House provides secure basement parking and overlooks a landscaped garden.
Darien Bradshaw, Executive Director, International Project Marketing, Asia, CBRE, the residential consultancy appointed to handle the sales and marketing for Emerald Square, said: “We are still seeing strong and consistent demand from Asian buyers looking for attractive buy-to-let investments in London. They are ideally looking for properties in areas of strong rental demand and from developers with established and trusted brands – Emerald Square ticks both boxes and will therefore attract a lot of attention.
“There are a limited number of new build properties in the local areas at present, and the area is extremely popular with young professionals thanks to its excellent transport links. It is also a more affordable alternative to nearby Putney or Richmond. This has created a lot of pent up demand for good quality apartments for rent.” Mr Bradshaw added.
