Prime developer Harbright is unveiling its first development outside the centre of the capital – with the launch of Whitelocke House, in West London..
Located in the heart of well-connected Hounslow town centre, the boutique development of stylish apartments will appeal to purchasers looking for an investment property, with anticipated gross rental yields in excess of 5%, as well as first-time buyers, with Help to Buy available, and those seeking a London base.
Henry Hardy, director of Harbright, said: “Our track record in prime developments is reflected in the approach we have taken at Whitelocke House, creating super smart apartments with excellent specification for discerning buyers, which offer real value to people looking to buy a home in London. Hounslow is a great location for people who may need to divide their time between an office and working from home in a thriving local environment, or those who need to be able to reach the centre of London each working day. The town is benefiting from substantial investment to enhance its future as a flourishing destination in West London.”
Behind a red brick façade, there is a range of studios, one bedroom homes and one bedroom plus study apartments for working from home – spacious and beautifully designed, with open plan living areas. A sophisticated Farrow & Ball colour palette contrasting with barrel oak grey flooring, and brushed satin steel detailing, creates calm, relaxed interiors. Sleek Kitchen Ergonomics bespoke kitchens are finished with white quartz worktops and Neff integrated appliances. Shower rooms are styled with cool grey vanity units and tiles, contrasting with fresh white accents and full width custom mirrors. Bedrooms are generously proportioned, with space maximised to feature built-in wardrobes. There is underfloor heating throughout the apartments, and the latest tech cabling.
Whitelocke House has an attractive landscaped front courtyard garden by international designers Meeuwsen Muldoon. The impressive main entrance leads to a main reception lobby with a lift, lockable letterboxes and a secure cycle store, plus an audio-video entrance system linking to all apartments.
The development is close to excellent transport links to central London – two minutes’ walk from Hounslow Central underground station, with a 35-minute journey to Hyde Park Corner and 22 minutes to Hammersmith. Hounslow national rail station is an 11-minute walk, with trains to Richmond taking 15 minutes and Waterloo just 32 minutes away. Heathrow airport is 11 minutes on the Piccadilly line. The major employment hub of the Golden Mile – a stretch of the Great West Road which is home to businesses such as Sky Television’s office and studio campus – is a seven-minute drive away. London Heathrow is a major local employer with 76,000 people working across the airport.
For students looking for a London base, there are fast tube and train links to London’s world-ranking universities, including Imperial College, King’s College, the LSE and UCL.
Hounslow town centre is a vibrant destination, with a mix of good shops, restaurants, cafes, gyms and supermarkets. A £210m transformation of the town centre will complete this year, adding an exciting new offering of retail and restaurants, plus a Cineworld multiplex cinema.
