The 61-unit scheme on Bridge Road, close to Chertsey Bridge and the River Thames, was approved by Runneymede Borough Council’s Planning Committee. The planning application was for an extension to Bridge House, an early 2000s office building that recently received prior approval for conversion to 39 apartments, to provide a further 22 residential units.
The scheme will comprise 30 one-bedroom micro-apartments ranging in size from 33sqm (355sqft) to 48sqm (517sqft) and 9 two-bedroom micro-apartments of between 42sqm (452sqft) and 57sqm (614sqft) together with 13 larger one-bedroom and 9 larger two-bedroom units at London Plan sizes.
All apartments will be designed to a high specification, including hardwood flooring, designer kitchens and bathrooms with granite worktops and stone tiling, and home technology featuring NEST Smart thermostats, communal heating systems and superfast broadband by Hyperoptic.
Jeremy Beck, Development Director at Inspired Asset Management (our parent company), said: “This planning consent almost doubles the value of our scheme paving the way for us to unlock development finance and start construction. Our proposals will refurbish and convert a contemporary Georgian building while grafting on a beautifully designed new-build element. Chertsey is a highly sought-after market town close to the Thames that offers a wealth of outdoor pursuits and excellent local employment, including Samsung, Sony, Toshiba, Procter & Gamble and McLaren while Heathrow Airport is not far away.
“We expect the development to appeal to a mixture of young professionals working locally and downsizers looking to take advantage of the stunning riverside setting with its marinas and some of the best lakes and countryside in the South East.”
The apartments start at £265,200 with car parking available for each residential unit. Call the sales team on 020 8688 6552 to enquire.
