Well built. Everything is quality.

Well built. Everything is quality. But too well insulated. In the summer it is like an oven in the afternoon but i guess it is a problem with all new builds. Modern appliances. Higher than average ceiling, or it was designed to give this feeling.

Please tell us what you like and dislike about this area:

The area is pretty good. Transportation is around the corner. Rugby days are a problem though.

Please share one thing (or more) which you wish you had known before you moved in:

Rugby days are a problem. So many people in the area using public transport it is overcrowded.

How has the building management responded to any problems or issues you have raised:

Generally very good. responsive. The concierge is very good

Super modern, neutral, open plan design.

Nice community with lovely friendly neighbours. Great design with super modern open plan layout. Nice neutral design.

One issue is it can be very hot in summer and there is no air conditioning. SW facing apartments such as mine suffer. I was also not given a parking space.

No gym or pool like other developments.

Please tell us what you like and dislike about this area:

Good transport, up and coming area.
High Street shops need to get better and some spots a bit run down. But this will come as area improves.

Please share one thing (or more) which you wish you had known before you moved in:

Lots of unforeseen costs with housing association.
Endless stream of cars stopping to pick people up by entrance, despite sign.

How has the building management responded to any problems or issues you have raised:

They have been pretty responsive but not very helpful.

Friendly neighbours and nice community.

Review Date Sep 2019

Friendly neighbours and nice community. Very good concierge service.

Buildings look nice and seem well designed but problems start a few months after moving in. Nearby area is peaceful generally speaking, transport links are useful.

Please tell us what you like and dislike about this area:

Quiet and good transports. Good facilities such as shops nearby.
Nearby trainline, and passing trains can cause noticeable tremors in buildings.

Please share one thing (or more) which you wish you had known before you moved in:

Trains effect and noisy plans overhead due to being under Heathrow flight path.

The built quality is excellent. Service charges are very high. 24 hour concierge. No gym no pool but underground parking is available. Nice bar in the building. And there will be a restaurant soon right underneath us.

Please tell us what you like and dislike about this area:

Transport and access to green open spaces. Restaurants good in richmond and it is a short journey there.

Please share one thing (or more) which you wish you had known before you moved in:

Trains can be loud. Double glazing is good but in the summer we hear them because we have to keep the windows open.

How has the building management responded to any problems or issues you have raised:

They are quick and responsive. No issues atall with them.

An alternative to pricey Richmond in the shadow of Twickenham Stadium

Review Date Apr 2018

The Brewery Wharf by St James of the Berkeley Group, and designed by JTP Architects, is set in a gated mews in the leafy area of Twickenham on the site of the former Royal Mail Sorting Office. It comprises 110 new-build homes (82 luxury apartments and 28 gated houses) beside the River Crane where it joins the Thames. While it’s not held in quite the same regard as neighbouring Richmond, Twickenham has lots to offer in terms of green spaces, riverside settings, great schools and fast trains into central London. Not forgetting its international rugby stadium, of course. This residential and mixed-use development will appeal to buyers looking in this neck of the woods but are unwilling to pay a premium for Richmond living. The average price per square foot for the area is GBP945, and this development sits just very slightly over that, making it good value for Twickenham. Brewery Wharf is just part of a wider multi-million-pound regeneration that will be taking place in the area over the next decade.

In terms of location, Twickenham is the ideal spot if it’s peace and riverside West London living you’re looking for. Brewery Wharf is handily situated opposite Twickenham railway station, which takes 25 minutes to reach Waterloo, and runs every 8 minutes. It takes 21 minutes to reach Vauxhall, and just 4 minutes to Richmond from where you can join the District Line. Twickenham town centre is a short walk away, where you’ll find the usual line-up of high-street shops and chain restaurants alongside independent stores and eateries, and for green space, Richmond Park and Kew Gardens are your best bet. For drivers, the M3 and the M4 are easily accessible, making this a great choice for those working frequently in the South and West of England. For rugby fans, the fact that these new homes are within walking distance from the iconic Twickenham Stadium, will make it an appealing option. Across the river is the attractive Borough of Richmond, with its historic houses, theatres, museums and galleries to peruse on a weekend.

When it comes to facilities within the development, it offers something a little different – a cultural venue with seating for up to 350 people, and can accommodate touring theatre companies, film showings, business meetings and other community arts projects. There are two restaurants overlooking the public piazza, as well as external seating areas for when the weather behaves. There’s also underground parking available for car owners. The interiors of the apartments are light, airy and contemporary, with modern dark wood flooring in a chic herringbone pattern, and double-height ceilings giving the homes a spacious feel. Kitchens feature sleek handleless white gloss kitchen cabinets with Smeg integrated appliances, while the bedrooms include fitted wardrobes. A fob entry system and a concierge keep the development safe and secure, although the area is known for its low crime rate. From the outside, Brewery Wharf flaunts warehouse-style architecture – a nod to the site’s brewery origins – with large aluminium-framed windows, exposed brickwork and armour-coated render. Meanwhile, the four- and five-bedroom townhouses are inspired by the Georgian period, with their portico entrances, first-floor terraces and rooftop dormers.

Other options to consider nearby are Teddington Gate and Teddington Riverside.
