Barratt London launches 125 new apartments and houses next to the expansive greenery of Putney Heath
Barratt London has unveiled its first scheme of 2015 with the launch of Putney Rise on Westleigh Avenue, SW15. Located near the top of Putney Hill, offering views across West London towards the City, the low-rise development is set back from the road and is made up of 125 one, two and three-bedroom apartments and 30 three and four-bedroom houses with private gardens and parking. Residents will also benefit from an on-site car club and dedicated cycle parking.
Most of the apartments boast private outdoor space, and Putney Rise is less than a five-minute walk from 400-acre Putney Heath, which leads onto the world-famous Wimbledon Common, and Manor Fields, the third-largest private garden in London. The development is well served by bus and is a 15-minute walk or bus ride away from Putney Railway Station, providing access to the City in 20 minutes, and East Putney underground station on the District line.
Putney Rise’s architecture takes it cues from the bold aesthetics of the heritage listed Ark Academy next door and the neighbouring art deco Manor Fields. The low-rise development is set in thoughtfully-planned landscaped grounds that will retain the site’s existing mature trees and planting. First completions are planned for Summer 2016.
Regional Sales Director for Barratt London, Gary Patrick, said: “Putney is one of London’s most established and desirable villages. It’s a fantastic location for people wanting to live and work in the capital. Transport links make it close enough to access London’s main business and social hubs easily, yet Putney’s wealth of parks and green space means that it has a calmer feel than many other London neighbourhoods. We have made sure that Putney Rise is competitively priced. As one of the only new build developments in the area, we expect Putney Rise to prove popular with people seeking a low maintenance home in a peaceful green location but who don’t want to move out of London.”
Putney Rise is situated on land formerly owned by the Grade II listed ARK Putney Academy and is contributing to the rebuilding of the co-educational secondary school. As well as the ARK Putney Academy, the development is close to several good schools including one of the UK’s leading independent girls’ schools, Putney High School, which is just a 10-minute walk away. Prospect House, a non-selective independent primary school that is well-known for its excellent academic results, is also a short 8-minute walk away.
Prices started from £510,000 at the launch event.
