Kush Rawal Head of Sales and Marketing for Thames Valley Housing, says: “We’ve had a significant number of pre-registrations, so we are excited to now discuss options with prospective buyers. “Properties at St George’s Grove are highly sought after given the development’s enviable location between the affluent areas of Wimbledon and Wandsworth, and the high quality specification that is synonymous with the Thames Valley brand,” adds Kush. Tooting is a vibrant and growing area, with local independent shops, boutiques, cafes, and bars. There are a variety of restaurants in the local area to suit all tastes, from Indian and South Asian to Italian and Spanish. For shopping, Tooting High Street, Southside Shopping Centre and Centre Court Shopping Centre are all within easy reach. A range of activities can be found near to St George’s Grove at the Tooting Leisure Centre or The Bedford in Balham, and the local Tooting Bec Lido, an award-winning Art Deco pool, is Europe’s second largest outdoor pool. The development is also within walking distance of Garratt Park, Wimbledon Park, Wandsworth Common and Tooting Bec Common so residents will be spoilt for choice on parks. St George’s Grove itself is set around a landscaped courtyard in a quiet cul-de-sac. The new homes come with their own parking space and there is also an on-site shop and crèche. Each apartment will have an Alno built in kitchen with a cooker, an integrated fridge/freezer, washer/dryer and dishwasher. Bedrooms, lounges and hallways will be carpeted and kitchens and bathrooms will be tiled.
