A luxury two-bedroom show home has opened to the public for the first time on Saturday 30 January 2016 – the final phase of apartments at Berkeley Homes’ new development, Abell & Cleland. Some homes will be available for occupation this spring – ideal for buyers looking to move within a few months. Prices start from £1.5m.
The development offers more than a home. It provides the lifestyle you’d expect from this sought-after address. The neighbourhood of Westminster has a mix of shops specialising in fine arts and antiques, bespoke tailors and delicatessens. It’s position lets residents enjoy the cultural and culinary delights London is celebrated for.
Just minutes away from the Houses of Parliament on London’s John Islip Street, this new central London development has one, two and three-bedroom apartments and penthouses set across two buildings. There is a concierge service available 24 hours a day to manage security and welcome residents, attending to daily needs such as dry cleaning and booking restaurants or theatre tickets, while a private residents’ leisure complex has a pool, sauna and fitness centre.
