The modern-day Londoner spends 64% of their free time in the evenings going to the gym, taking part in cultural activities and even continuing to work after hours, according to the Greater London Authority[i]. The gym is the most popular place to be after dark with 26% of those surveyed partaking in sporting activities and working (24%) or cultural activities like art and theatre (14%). For Londoners looking for a flagship home with access to these activities, Bellway Homes’ The Residence in Nine Elms is a perfect fit.
The collection of luxury one, two and three-bedroom apartments comes with access to an onsite gym and yoga class studio, open 24-hours a day, a meeting room with free Wi-Fi, a media room and art space, Matt’s Gallery. These amenities mean that residents are able to make the most of the modern London lifestyle, and are able to take part in after-work activities, whilst staying close to home.
Each apartment is cleverly designed, featuring floor-to-ceiling windows to maximise natural light, includes premium appliances in the kitchens and spa-like fittings to bathrooms. Many of the apartments have picturesque views over the surrounding parks, piazzas and public gardens of the regenerated Nine Elms currently taking shape and the use of a 24-hour concierge service.
Emma Hamlett, Sales Director at Bellway Thames Gateway, comments: “The modern Londoner is always on the go and wants to have everything within easy access. We are pleased to offer a perfect mix of facilities suitable for the modern lifestyle at The Residence and believe that’s why the apartments have been popular with only 20 homes remaining. New potential buyers should come down and see what’s on offer here before they sell out.”
Many of the apartments have sweeping views toward the American Embassy and the surrounding parks, piazzas and public gardens of Nine Elms. As part of the regeneration of the neighbourhood, there is a focus on outdoor shopping areas and public open space, with a mix of pavement cafés, restaurants, bars, event spaces and hotels, as well as art galleries. A new linear park is under construction stretching from Battersea Power Station to Vauxhall Cross, offering footpaths and cycle routes linking with the Thames River Path.
Travel connections are also great; currently, the closest tube station is Vauxhall Underground Station accessing the Victoria Line, less than a 15-minute walk from The Residence. The extension of London Underground’s Northern Line is introducing two new stations at Nine Elms and Battersea Power Station. Expected to be in operation by 2020, the work will hugely improve travel by tube into central, north and south London. Residents will have a 200-metre walk to the new station and a quick 12-minute journey into the City, or eight minutes to Westminster, ideal for when visitors come to stay.
Prices at The Residence start at £675,000. To register your interest and for further details, please visit www.bellway.co.uk or call 0203 092 9677.
