By Romesh Navaratnarajah: The cover of the 1969 album by The Beatles made Abbey Road a famous spot in London. And now, home buyers from Singapore can practically walk on the same street with the nearby Manor Apartments (pictured) by UK-based Residential Land launching here over the weekend, said marketing agent Knight Frank.
Comprising 17 apartments within a mansion block, unit sizes range from 721 sq ft for a two-bedder to 1,292 sq ft for three-bedders. Prices start from £999,950 (S$1.89 million).
The project blends contemporary interiors with a classic red-brick exterior and apartments come with polished oak floors, crystal lighting, custom kitchen units, integrated audio-visual and lighting systems.
Given its location in the prime St John's Wood area, Manor Apartments is expected to enjoy increased capital values and rents in the next few years. Moreover, it is within close proximity to retail outlets, restaurants, schools and parks.
Linda Chern, Director of International Project Marketing at Knight Frank, said: "Since the announcement of the cooling measures by the Singapore government, we have received more inquiries from well-heeled and discerning clients about investment opportunities abroad, in particular cities like London. These buyers are keen on units that are well designed and in a good location. Manor Apartments fits the bill."
Interested buyers can visit the exhibition to be held at the Four Seasons Hotel from tomorrow until Sunday, 24 February. Romesh Navaratnarajah, Senior Editor of PropertyGuru, wrote this story.
