BURLINGTON BATHES IN GLORY IN PRESTIGIOUS ST JAMES HOMES DEVELOPMENT
Only materials of the highest quality and durability whose presence can create a magnificent finish have been incorporated into the St James Homes development of 19 five/seven bedroom London townhouses in Wycombe Square, Kensington. And for nine of those homes with a luxury indoor swimming pool, Burlington’s Elterwater stone helps provide the ultimate in urban luxury.
Approximately 77m2 of Burlington’s distinctive pale green Elterwater stone in a honed finish has been used to line the bottom of each 8x4 metre pool, whilst the same material in a non-slip flamed finish graces the pool’s outer edges. In addition to providing a distinctive border around the pool itself, the stone edging provides the perfect compliment to the surrounding leisure area. Together with mosaic tiles and illuminated underwater lamps, Burlington’s stone helps create a haven of relaxation and opulence.
Commenting on Burlington’s inclusion in this flagship development, Joint-Managing Director, Malcolm Hatch, said: “We are delighted that Burlington’s stone has been featured in these prestigious townhouses – one of the first garden squares to be built in the last 100 years.
He continued: “We fully endorse the philosophy of St James Homes that it is true craftsmanship and quality materials that add enormous lasting value, substance and style to a home. Burlington’s stone has long been recognised as a product with outstanding technical and aesthetic properties and it has frequently been associated with projects of this nature.”
Located off Campden Hill Road, the townhouses are set around three sides of a spacious garden square and their sumptuous interiors provide up to 8,000sq ft of living space. Located on the lower ground floor, the swimming pools adjoin a glass walled leisure area that houses a wet bar hidden behind folding doors, and this provides the perfect venue for relaxation and entertaining. The pool room also has an adjoining gymnasium/exercise room and washing and changing facilities.
Each pool operates on a state-of-the-art ionisation filtration system which, unlike a traditional chlorine system, does not have strong smells or irritate the eyes.
