New Homes Fulham Development – Bishops Gate
This is my post on Bishops Gate, a new homes Fulham development I went to visit recently. If you can’t view the video, please click here.
Not great expectations…
I think it’s fair to say that if you’re looking for a family home or apartment in London, you’re expecting to have to compromise on your wish list. If you want to be able to move straight into it, this is even more the case.
So as it only took five minutes to walk from Putney Bridge station to Bishops Gate, I was off to a very good start. This is a new Meyer Homes development on Fulham High Street. When you enter this gated community, you would never believe that the hustle and bustle of West London was actually on your doorstep, as it feels so private and tranquil.
Bishops Gate comprises 42 one, two and three bedroom apartments and 10 townhouses. If you know Meyer Homes then you will know what to expect when it comes to their style and standards, and Bishops Gate doesn’t disappoint.
Before I go any further, although it was only recently completed, they are selling fast, so if this piques your interest I’d make the call to go and see them first hand – then we can compare notes!
And there’s parking!
Having lived in London for a decade, I never expected a flat or even a house to come with parking. So when I discovered there are not only places in the courtyard, but more impressively in a secure underground area, I knew this alone would draw people in. Each place has it’s own spot and owners of the townhouses can buy a second.
Entering the parking area is like being on a James Bond film set. Each space has an electric car charging point.
The courtyard itself has a familiar feel. Although it’s clearly modern architecture, it’s styled on the more traditional London townhouse.
The apartment block is softened by a green wall, and it’s all very light and welcoming when you enter through the historic gatehouses.
One of the many benefits of this development is a reception with concierge. This in itself feels like the entrance to a boutique hotel.
Wish London designed the interiors. They “focused on creating an interior scheme which feels tailored and timeless. A clean, crisp, gallery-like backdrop showcases a carefully curated selection of materials, accentuating the quality of each finish”. I couldn’t have put it better myself!
It’s all very light and sophisticated. Oversized doors, under basin lighting and high end fixtures and fittings make it look and feel uber swanky.
The townhouses have a decent sized lawned garden. The apartment I looked at had a balcony to die for with views of trees, and you can see the Thames in winter.
All the rooms are well proportioned and cleverly designed to maximise space.
My favourite bit
I think one of my favourite features in the apartment was the open-plan lounge and kitchen, lined with bifolding doors onto the balcony, and I loved the darker wood features.
If you’re house-hunting in London, this is a must-see development. For more details go to the Bishops Gate website, or you can call 020 7751 3444 for a viewing.
