Flowers are not the only things sprouting up in Kew these days. A number of new housing developments are entering the market, enticing buyers to find better value for money in the greener, airier, more spacious suburbs of south west London.
One of these is Kew Bridge West, a new development from St James, the luxury, design-conscious branch of the Berkeley Group. Standing tall over its six sister buildings is Hyperion Tower, a collection of one, two and three bedroom newly-released homes and penthouses.
Perched at the summit is the Helios Penthouse, a bright, airy sanctuary in the sky on the 15th floor occupying nearly 1,500sqft.
It’s the icing on the cake of the development, sitting on top of four floors of Hyperion Tower’s luxury apartments, known as The Suites.
The three bedroom, three bathroom property comes with an array of features to enhance the views of the Thames and Kew Botanical Gardens. There’s a balcony just off the living room, every room has floor-to-ceiling glazed windows, and there’s a set of internal stairs that are covered by a glazed atrium leading up to a 775sqft roof terrace.
And if you want to stretch your legs, landscaped gardens are a main feature of the Kew Bridge West development, which is surrounded by manicured lawns, a grove of cherry trees and illuminated water jets. The Thames Path is virtually on your doorstep, while Kew Green is just over the bridge and Richmond Park is also within walking distance.
Inside the penthouse underfloor heating and comfort cooling is available throughout, and the kitchen has been fitted out with Siemens appliances, stone worktops and a wine cooler. The owner of the Helios Penthouse will also have access to other resident perks such as a concierge, gym and underground parking.
Its location between Kew Village – a typically modern London neighbourhood – and family favourite Chiswick means boutiques and restaurants are never far away. Commuters will also be pleased to know that Kew Bridge Rail Station runs a service into Waterloo that takes less than half an hour.
