Kingston Riverside, a luxury development situated by the banks of the River Thames has launched its first show apartment showcasing its riverside homes that will help meet the growing demand for property in the Royal Borough.
When complete, the luxury new homes will help to cater for the growing demand of high quality houses as Kingston’s population is predicted to rise by 8.1% between 2010 and 2015, and as yummy mummies and young couples move out of the city to Kingston for a better standard of living.
Kingston, which is renowned for its easy 30 minute commute to the city, its wealth of shops, stunning royal parks and access to the River Thames has contributed to the growing appeal of the area amongst young couples and families. Demand to live in the area is also being driven by the ripple effect of soaring house prices in prime central London which has encouraged first-time buyers, second steppers and families alike to look outside of the inner boroughs of London for a more spacious and luxurious home for their money.
The launch of the new show apartment comes as 93 luxury, one, two and three bedroom apartments and penthouses at its Trafalgar Building complete later this summer. When fully complete, Kingston Riverside will house 210 luxury apartments boasting enviable river views with all of the homes coming with balconies or terraces and fitted with external facing glass panels so residents can enjoy the view of the River Thames all year round.
The large three bedroom show apartment features a generous wrap around terrace and floor to ceiling windows showcasing the impressive views of the riverside from the apartment. The bespoke interior of the show apartment combines plush neutrals and rich metallic tones, creating a contemporary and luxurious home.
Mary Timlin, Sales and Marketing Director of Redrow Homes London, said: “It is no surprise that Kingston is appealing to young couples and families that are drawn to the lifestyle it offers, including its fast links into London and its wealth of shops, parks and bars and restaurants, which are all a significant benefit of living at Kingston Riverside.
“This new show apartment and marketing suite demonstrates the exceptional quality of the apartments, the views and lifestyle offered at the development. Kingston Riverside is truly a rare opportunity for buyers to own a luxury apartment in such a sought-after location with a dedicated concierge service, high quality design and interiors.”
The iconic architecture of the building, which takes its distinctive design from contours associated with open water, reflects and complements its desirable riverside location and sets a new benchmark for design in the area.
Whilst apartments throughout Kingston Riverside have been thoughtfully designed with a contemporary feel featuring light-filled and spacious living areas, ideal for entertaining guests or to enjoy with the family. Sleek kitchens are fitted with state-of-the-art stainless steel and electrical appliances, concealed cabinet lighting and soft close units. For residents that enjoy wine with a meal and when entertaining guests, wine can be stored in the apartment’s built-in wine cooler.
Bathrooms and en suites have also been designed with the same thoughtful attention to detail, with polished chrome brassware by Hansgrohe and porcelain stoneware tiling complementing the elegant design of the rest of the apartment.
Kingston Riverside is just one mile from the 700-acre Hampton Court Palace and gardens – a former home of King Henry VIII, whose grounds can now be enjoyed by the public. Lush green royal parks teamed with wildlife and nature are all in less than six miles of the development. Residents with a home at Kingston Riverside are just a five minute drive to London’s largest royal park, Richmond Park and the second largest, Bushy Park, that is home to herds of wild deer and features the Diana fountain memorial.
