New homes in London: Brewery Wharf

Warehouse apartments and Georgian townhouses along the River Crane in Twickenham.
Georgian grandees built their country mansions along the rural reaches of the Thames upstream in places such as Twickenham. It has since evolved into a popular suburb and has a cache of family homes that are a fair bit cheaper than those in Richmond, just a bridge-length away. 

Twickenham also offers open space and river scenes, a high street, good state and private schools and fast trains to Waterloo. 
Brewery Wharf, pictured, is a rare new development of scale and is being  built alongside the River Crane, which joins the Thames here. The scheme of 82 apartments and 28 houses will be part of a new town centre hub, with a 320-seat cultural venue, public piazza, restaurants and bars.

While the architecture of the warehouse-style apartment blocks reflects the site’s origins, the  four- and five-bedroom townhouses are inspired by the Georgian period, and have portico entrances, first-floor terraces and rooftop dormers. 

Set in a gated mews, the houses will be complete in April next year. Prices from £1.45 million. Call St James on 020 3002 9457.
