Located in the heart of the culturally thriving and historic Westminster, Smart New Homes explores Barratt London’s Great Minster House in their development spotlight.
Known around the world for surrounding iconic landmarks, Westminster is home to the Houses of Parliament, Big Ben, and now Barratt London’s Great Minster House development, with Smart New Homes calling Great Minster House a “stylish new home in the heart of the Capital city”.
Exploring the area, Smart New Homes says “Great Minster House offers everything you could want from a central London residence”. A short walk from the River Thames, residents are moments away from some of the landmarks that make up the Capital’s skyline.
A day in Westminster can be spent visiting the luxury boutiques and theatres of the West End, and the development is perfectly positioned for taking advantage of the South Bank’s world-famous galleries and fine dining experiences – from the Roux Brothers’ Le Gavroche to Heston Blumenthal’s Dinner.
The area also has excellent transport links, and travelling on foot in Westminster is not only manageable but pleasurable. The core of London’s transport network is nearby, with a 15 minute walk from Victoria train station, 13 minutes from Westminster Tube and 25 minutes from St Pancras International (for Eurostar connections) from the development.
After a day of shopping and checking out the local sights, finding a cuisine to suit all palates is easy. From local bistros to some of the finest London restaurants, such as The Cinnamon Club and Bank Westminster, Westminster is host to a number of award-winning eateries.
Westminster is also home to the Strutton Ground Market, a small street market held on weekdays. The market goods include fruit and vegetables, flowers, hardware, books, coffee, and hot food. Organised and regulated by Westminster City Council, the market features coffee stall "Flatcap" – winner of Westminster City Council's 2010 Market Trader of the Year award.
According to City A.M., the existing building of Great Minster House has been “reimagined by Barratt London”, and transformed into elegant homes with all the comforts of 21st century living. Expected to complete in summer 2015, Great Minster House is made up of 61 spacious one-bedroom suites, one, two and three-bedroom apartments and penthouses.”, offering everything you could want from a central London residence including magnificent high ceilings, parquet floors, terraces and a 24-hour concierge.
The culture in Westminster is unrivalled, and Great Minster House is in the perfect neighbourhood, reflecting all that London has to offer.
