Barratt London has recently launched Springfield Place, a new residential development in Tooting Bec, Wandsworth.
These are the first homes to become available at the new Springfield Village community, which will include a new residential village of 839 homes in total complete with an on-site café, retail space, public square, the provision of land for a new primary school, newly restored listed buildings, affordable housing, as well as 32 acres of public parkland.
Pam Reardon, Sales & Marketing Director for Barratt East London, said: “We wanted any new building here to be designed sensitively to the local vernacular, whilst giving homebuyers the best quality living space and views. The contrast of modern and period architecture will certainly redefine this part of Wandsworth’s skyline, mediating between the scale of the new development and the existing Edwardian urban grain. Together with City & Country, we will be creating an exciting new hub for south west London.”
The residential village is being built in the former grounds of Springfield University Hospital and will see developer City & Country restore and convert a Grade II listed former hospital building into a collection of apartments, creating a mix of conversion and new build homes.
Homebuyers will have a collection of nearly 300 homes and a diverse range of property types to choose from. Barratt London’s first release of homes includes one and two bedroom apartments overlooking landscaped gardens, with future releases of properties including three-bedroom apartments and two- and three-bedroom houses set-back on mews streets.
The masterplan of the site has been developed by South West London and St George’s Mental Health NHS Trust (SWLSTG) and includes the development of modern mental health facilities.
Pam continued: “The new park being created will be a particular benefit for families as buyers continue to look for locations beyond Zone 1 for affordability and connectivity. The desirability of south west London has been incredible to watch over the past decade, and Tooting is fast becoming one of London’s coolest neighbourhoods with markets, independent shops, exciting new restaurants and bars popping up all the time.”
