Premium Apartments Launch In Windsor
Finding premium apartments in Windsor is no easy task for home buyers according to Strutt & Parker. With Windsor Castle majestically taking centre stage, this affluent Berkshire town has always attracted a wealth of buyers looking for luxury homes close to the heart of the action. Award-winning housebuilder Spitfire Bespoke Homes has unveiled the brand-new show apartment at St Mark’s Gate, just a few minutes’ walk from the historic town centre.
Offering a stylish collection of just eight high-specification two-bedroom apartments and one exclusive penthouse with views towards Windsor Castle, St Mark’s Gate is ideal for discerning buyers looking for luxury living in this highly sought after location. The apartments each benefit from private underground parking and are located within a private courtyard, accessed through electronic gates.
Matthew Brazier, Sales & Marketing Director of Spitfire Bespoke Homes, comments: “St Mark’s Gate offers buyers a rare opportunity to secure a low maintenance home in a very convenient location in the heart of Windsor. There is strong property demand for luxury apartments in Windsor, thanks to its traditional Royal heritage, superb shopping and excellent leisure opportunities. The exterior combines characterful Edwardian features, with all the internal benefits of a contemporary new home. We urge potential purchasers to get in contact as soon as possible.”
Jo Chadwick, Senior Associate Director at Strutt & Parker’s Windsor office comments: “Windsor has always attracted the affluent Berkshire ‘set’ lured to this beautiful market town by boutique shopping, access to the both the River Thames and Windsor Great Park, great eateries and sometimes the proximity to our Royal family.
“We are confident that the collection of homes is going to be of great interest to many, the location is fabulous, with an easy walk into the town centre and to the station. Possibly the biggest selling point for this collection of homes is the parking, often a rarity in Windsor. Luxury apartments are few and far between and I am confident that St Mark’s Gate will exceed all expectations.”
Reflecting classic Edwardian architecture, the building has been designed using brick with stone dressings, and traditional window design paired with contemporary glazing. Internally the homes are designed to maximise light and space, incorporating contemporary interior finishes and Spitfire’s renowned signature specification.
Designed with modern living in mind, each apartment has a generously proportioned kitchen/dining/living area, many of which enjoy direct access to a private outdoor balcony or terrace. Kitchens have been individually designed with hand crafted gloss handleless units, quartz worktops and a range of Siemens integrated appliances. Bathrooms feature white contemporary Villeroy & Boch sanitary ware, polished chrome fittings by Hansgrohe and ceramic tiling throughout.
The Hawtrey Penthouse is the crowning glory at St Mark’s Gate offering panoramic views across to Windsor Castle. This beautifully designed apartment encompasses an expansive living area with sleek bi-fold doors opening onto a large L-shaped terrace. The penthouse includes two double bedrooms, two luxury bathrooms, a study, cloakroom and utility room. For those that enjoy al fresco entertaining, at the opposite end of this luxurious home is a substantial second private terrace which is ideal for outside living.
Located just moments away from one of England’s most famous castles, there is an array of eateries and leisure activities in the area. Windsor Great Park is a haven for those who enjoy the great outdoors including ramblers, horse riding and cyclists. The River Thames in Windsor also provides a beautiful riverside setting for leisurely strolls, sailing and rowing. St Leonards Road is within walking distance of the homes, where the shops sell an array of local produce and amenities, while just moments away, The Old Fire Station offers theatre, comedy, music and dance workshops.
Perfectly positioned for commuters, direct trains from Windsor & Eton Central serve London Paddington in just 28 minutes. The M4 and M25 are also nearby for travel further afield, including Heathrow Airport which take approximately 15 minutes by car.
