Putting its stamp on the the growing regeneration site of Nine Elms, Bellway Homes’ is launching its latest development on former Royal Mail land, Lexington Gardens. Homebuyers looking to be part of the newly formed residential and business quarter will find a first-class collection of apartments with excellent amenities at Lexington Gardens, which forms the next part of the jigsaw to the housebuilder’s other successful collection of homes close by at The Residence.
Residents will be able to take advantage of the great views across Nine Elms from the roof top gardens, make use of a private, state-of-the art gym and a media room is available to hire for film nights in with friends. Meanwhile 24-hour concierge is on hand and residents will also be able to make use of a meeting room for any business needs at The Residence next door. Lexington Gardens will transform the former mail centre area of the site that had belonged to Royal Mail since 1973 into luxury living space that will consist of one, two and three-bedroom apartments.
Emma Hamlett, Sales Director at Bellway Thames Gateway, comments: “Lexington Gardens offers the next chapter for Bellway in Nine Elms and we are looking forward to launching these much-needed homes in the district on a site that has been underused. The development is close to the new US Embassy and we will appeal to professionals working here and across London because it offers stylish apartments with some great amenities too. We encourage homebuyers to come and visit our show apartments to see what this collection of homes has to offer.”
Apartments all come with high-end specifications such as integrated premium appliances, wardrobes and dressing areas in the bedrooms and spa-like bathroom fittings. All apartments will have balconies, and some will be available with parking, although being so close to the vibrant district’s park, piazzas and cycleways offers an option for a more sustainable commute other than driving.
Residents of Lexington Gardens will have easy access to an array of leisure facilities across the district, including a number of restaurants, pavement cafes, event spaces and art galleries; all welcome additions to this newly-formed cultural hub. The environment itself is set to be altered with a new park, extending from Battersea Power Station, a major focal point in this area, to Vauxhall Cross inclusive of new cycle routes and footpaths, connecting with the River Thames towpath.
Great for commuters, the development has excellent travel connections, with Vauxhall Overground close by and a new train station to the Northern Line set for 2020 that is just 300 metres walk away. The extension will offer far faster routes across the whole of London with a 12-minute train journey direct into London Waterloo.
Prices at Lexington Gardens start at £569,950 for a one-bedroom apartment.
