Change your perception of apartment-style living with The Charterhouse apartments at St John’s Mews.
Apartment-style living can appeal to a range of buyers from young people starting out on the property ladder, to families and friends, or right sizers whose children have fled the nest – but not everyone likes huge apartment blocks.
So for those who want the homely feel you get with a traditional house, Redrow has the ideal solution.
Its new apartments at St John’s Mews in Wakefield combine the convenience of an apartment with architecture more akin to a Georgian townhouse, creating a cosy, homely feeling you just don’t get in a larger block. The Charterhouse apartments offer a total of 10 properties in an elegant building of just three storeys.
Inside, there is a trio of one-bedroom apartments, half-a-dozen two-bedroom apartments, plus a ‘coach house’ style apartment with two bedrooms.
“Apartments are increasingly popular because they are easy to maintain and offer convenient, open plan living all on one floor,” says Joanne Hoyland, area sales manager for Redrow Homes (Yorkshire). “But while lots of people like the beauty and benefits of an apartment, they don’t all like the look or ‘hotel feel’ of a larger block.
“The Charter House apartments are perfect because they’re cleverly designed to give quality over quantity and they have a welcoming appearance.
“These apartments offer a feeling of privacy and will make people change how they think about apartment living.”
The Charterhouse 2, from £169,950, offers superbly stylish accommodation with two generously sized double bedrooms, including a master bedroom with en-suite shower room and built-in wardrobes.
While the bedrooms are spacious and appealing however, it is the open plan living area that is the real star of these homes. At more than 715 sq ft in size it offers plenty of space for cooking, dining, entertaining friends and family or just relaxing after a long day.
The Charterhouse 1, from £134,950, offers similarly spacious open plan living with one double bedroom and is ideal for single first time buyers or couples.
The two-bedroom apartments are great new homes for young families, fabulous as a flat-share to split the costs or ideal for ‘right sizers’ who want a spare room for when children or grandchildren come to visit.
The Charterhouse apartments at St John’s Mews are part of a collection of luxury homes on the site of the former Bishopgarth police training centre, with one, two and four-bedroom properties currently available from £134,950 to £332,950.
All homes hail from Redrow’s Regent Collection, which combines classic Georgian-inspired architecture with contemporary and practical interiors for today’s modern living.
The development off College Grove Road is situated less than a mile from Wakefield town centre with all the amenities that enjoys, including being close to the train station providing easy access to Leeds and beyond.
Redrow has a range of initiatives that make investing in a new home easier than ever, including its own Help to Sell scheme which uses a local estate agent to help owners with an existing house to sell to market their home and find a buyer, with Redrow paying some or all of the estate agent fees.
There is also Help to Buy, the Government-backed scheme, which can provide an equity loan for up to 20% of a newly-built property’s value. The loan remains interest free for five years and the buyer then only requires a mortgage for 75% of the property value and a 5% deposit.
