Full description

With spectacular views of the River Thames, this is no ordinary apartment, and The Star and Garter is no ordinary development. The outlook is almost a replica of the many famous paintings of this beautiful stretch of river, while the building itself is a grand landmark known to all in the area. Exquisitely refurbished by London Square, The Star and Garter now offers the upmost in luxury living with exclusive residents' services, facilities and stunning grounds.

Offering 1,313 sq ft of flexible living accommodation, apartment 74 comprises two double bedrooms, an open plan living/kitchen/dining room, two bathrooms and a separate storage cupboard.

The two spacious bedrooms are both doubles and feature a choice of carpets*. The master suite includes bespoke fitted wardrobes with generous storage space, and an en suite bathroom with a choice of bespoke timber vanity units, Villeroy & Boch sanitaryware, marble polished worktops and upstands along with a choice of marble finish to the appliance walls, floors, shower and bath area*. The bedroom's two windows frame the view of the River Thames, while bedroom 2 looks out over one of the internal fernery courtyards. A second family bathroom next to bedroom 2 enjoys the same exemplary finish as the master en suite.

The open plan living/kitchen/dining room is a generous space that can accommodate formal living and entertaining as well as more relaxed, informal downtime. The bespoke designer kitchen features a range of handleless lacquered and wood tall units with LED strip lighting underneath, along with Miele appliances. The choice of stone worktops, upstands and splashbacks* is yours, allowing you to create your own signature style.

This stunning apartment not only features a custom designed luxury specification, including underfloor heating throughout, comfort cooling to the living areas and bedrooms and bespoke entrance doors, but also benefits from access to the communal landscaped gardens, with truly spectacular views across the Petersham Meadows with the River Thames beyond.

The Star and Garter is an iconic Grade II Listed Star and Garter building, which dates back from 1924 and has recently been transformed into a collection of 1, 2, 3 and 4 bedroom apartments, restored and specified to the highest possible standards.

Situated within Richmond's most famous landmark, these are stunning, unique residences. Facilities are of the calibre of a five star hotel, and include a leisure suite with a pool, spa and treatment room, Harrods concierge, and town car service, providing an incomparable lifestyle for residents. Underground parking has been created in the basement level of the building*, while many of The Star and Garter's original features remain, making this an exquisite place in which to live.

The building has a spectacular setting on Richmond Hill, with Richmond Park and Petersham Meadows both within a few minutes' walk.

'Turner's view' of the Thames is visible from the gardens. Petersham Common and Meadows, their mature woodland and open spaces giving the feeling of the countryside in town, are within a few minutes' walk, and form your back garden.

Richmond Park, the largest of the Royal Parks with its 2,500 acres and herds of wild deer, is so close that it is effectively your front garden.

The setting is undoubtedly magnificent, and is complemented perfectly by our transformation of the Star and Garter.

This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to live somewhere truly remarkable.

Richmond

The Star and Garter has the best possible location. It is so close to Richmond Park that this is effectively your front garden. Here, nature flourishes in all its forms, from ancient trees to rare beetles, and the profusion of flowers and shrubs in the Isabella Plantation attracts a wide range of birds. The park is of course famous for its herds of red and fallow deer, which roam freely.

In Pembroke Lodge, a Georgian mansion, you can take tea in the most elegant surroundings. You can also play golf, fish in Pen Ponds, play rugby, run or cycle, take part in outdoor fitness classes or even try your hand at power kiting.

Horse riding is another enjoyable way to explore Richmond Park. And there are wonderful views everywhere. It's even possible to see St Paul's Cathedral from the vantage point of King Henry's Mound, close to Richmond Gate.

Richmond Riverside

The Thames is at its most beautiful as it makes its way through Richmond, and there are many opportunities to admire it at leisure from the numerous bars and restaurants that line the riverbank.

Some of the best sightings of the Thames can be enjoyed from Terrace Gardens and Petersham Meadows, directly behind The Star and Garter. This is the 'view from Richmond Hill' that has inspired so many artists.

While the view is undoubtedly spectacular, it's easy to get much closer to the water. Walkers and cyclists can travel for miles towards Kingston or Kew and beyond. Of course, the river itself is a way to travel, whether you hop onto a pleasure boat or take the oars yourself, hiring a boat from one of the many boathouses in the locality.

Enjoyable summer events are also focused on the river at Richmond. These include the Great River Race, Richmond Amateur Regatta and Richmond Riverside Festival, all celebrating London's famous river.

Culture

Richmond has an engaging cultural life which encompasses cinema, theatre, art and music. The Orange Tree Theatre and Richmond Theatre are well known and the town has no fewer than four cinemas to choose from.

The local art scene is extensive, and includes Orleans House and the Stables Gallery in Twickenham, the Riverside Gallery in Richmond and the Landmark Arts Centre in Teddington. Live music of all kinds can also be enjoyed in and around Richmond. Jazz fans will know of the Richmond and Twickenham Jazz Club, one of the most respected in the country.

During the summer months, music of every genre is performed in some glorious outdoor settings. Kew Gardens has its own summer festival, Kew The Music, Marble Hill House puts on the House Festival, while the Hampton Court Palace Festival features some of the most revered names in rock and pop, as well as Opera on a Summer Night and the Royal Philharmonic Classical Gala and Fireworks.

Dining

Richmond is the ideal location for anyone who enjoys eating out, with dozens of options in the town centre and along the riverside. Some of the most highly regarded are Matsuba for exquisite Korean food; Petersham Nurseries Cafe, serving refined food in charming rustic surroundings; and The Bingham, a smart restaurant in a Georgian townhouse hotel overlooking the Thames. At the Petersham Hotel Restaurant, award winning cuisine or traditional afternoon tea can be enjoyed overlooking the river.

The best in French and Italian dining can be found in Al Bocco Di'vino is Non Solo Vino, Restaurant 109, Chez Lindsay and La Buvette. Richmond also has some excellent pubs, many of which have dining rooms attached or the added advantage of a riverside location. One Paradise Road is a popular wine bar, and if cocktails are to your taste, you can order an expertly-made concoction at Coco's or SoBar.

Finally, two unusual eating places are worthy of mention. William Curley is a temple to extravagant chocolate and patisserie; while anyone in search of seriously good ice cream heads for Gelateria Danieli on Richmond Green.

Shopping

Richmond town centre has an exciting range of shops, many of which specialise in fashion and luxury goods. Richmond Hill is particularly well supplied with designer boutiques and antique dealers, but the whole of the town is a paradise for keen shoppers.

Anyone with a serious interest in fashion will find plenty to please them in Richmond. Some of the desirable labels on display include Matches Fashion, Joseph, Max Mara, L K Bennett, Brora, Jo Malone and Whistles, as well as independent boutiques offering the finest in European design.

Male shoppers can choose from Ted Baker, T M Lewin, Gant, or order a bespoke suit at The Richmond Hill Tailor. Richmond's department store, House of Fraser, also stocks an excellent range of premium fashion and beauty brands.

Richmond shopping covers a great deal more than fashion, and those who want the finest quality food and wine will love browsing in the town centre.

Everyday food shopping can be done in Waitrose, Marks and Spencer and Sainsbury's, but if your preference is for organic, try the new Whole Foods Market in George Street. At the weekends you also have the opportunity to shop for edible specialities at the Saturday Farmers' Market or the Sunday Artisan Food and Craft Market, both held in Heron Square near Richmond Bridge.

Wine merchants include the quirkily named Philglas and Swiggot, while Hansel and Pretzel is a German delicatessen. Richmond also has its share of traditional butchers, greengrocers and bakers, including mouth-watering patisserie at Paul.
