Windsor’s only new-build waterside apartments have now been released at Shanly Homes’ Thameside.Located on the River Thames looking towards Eton, Thameside apartments offer a tranquil retreat in the heart of the town centre with many properties benefitting from views of Windsor Castle which is to host the weddings of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, and Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank this year.
The 18 apartments and six duplexes with two and three bedrooms range from £650,000 up to £1,750,000 and are currently the only new build properties on the riverside in Windsor, presenting a truly unique opportunity for buyers
Lorraine Williamson, head of residential development sales at Savills in Berkshire, says: “There is nothing like Thameside on the market in Windsor and so there has already been a lot of interest in the scheme. Properties on the water are forever desirable and Windsor has enjoyed a steady market for many years thanks to its prestigious heritage, riverside lifestyle and public transport connections.
Apartments and duplexes are being released off-plan with a show home available for viewings by appointment only from 10am to 5pm. The bespoke show home which has been designed by Andrew Henry Interiors has a calm yet opulent feel, complementing its stunning riverside setting. Andrew Henry comments: “The apartments at Thameside are exceptionally spacious appealing to downsizers who don’t want to compromise on size and style, so we were keen for our scheme to reflect this.
“We sought to achieve a classic contemporary look with a mix of statement furniture pieces. In the lounge, we complemented timeless cream fabric sofas with a marble coffee table and high-gloss sideboard. The weathered elm desk with chrome edging handpicked for the study is another example of the classic meeting the contemporary. The scheme was set against a quartz grey backdrop and subtle amethyst accents which we introduced through wallpapers, soft furnishings, artwork and accessories.”
Properties have individual layouts, with all apartments featuring an open-plan kitchen, living and dining area and duplexes have a kitchen/diner and separate lounge. Integrated kitchens offer a range of Miele and Siemens appliances including a dual temperature wine cooler.
All bedrooms come with fitted wardrobes with a high-gloss finish and bathrooms boast backlit mirrors and LED lighting to recessed mirrored bath plinths to give the illusion of a floating tub. The majority of properties benefit from outdoor space with balconies, patios and terraces making the most of the riverside or castle views. Each home has an allocated parking space in the gated underground carpark with heated ramp.
Nigel Sawers, sales and marketing director at Shanly Homes (Thames Valley), adds: “Every design detail has been taken into consideration at Thameside to ensure each home meets the standards of its charming waterside setting. Thameside residents will be able to step out of their home and be surrounded by rich culture, royal heritage and a myriad of shops, restaurants, cafés and bars. For those who commute to London, can actually see when their train is pulling in from their window and be on the platform in less than five minutes.”
Thameside is ideally located for transport links, within walking distance of both Windsor & Eton Riverside, and Windsor & Eton Central railway stations. From the latter, you can reach London Paddington in 31 minutes via Slough and London Waterloo from Windsor & Eton Riverside in just under an hour. The M4 is around 10 minutes’ drive away, making journeys to London and Bristol a breeze. Heathrow Airport is approximately 15 minutes’ drive.
