City & Country sets new record at the WhatHouse? Awards 2023
A duplex apartment offers a luxurious cross between apartment living and the space of a larger home
Stylish duplexes with soaring ceilings, extensive space and flexible layouts are becoming increasingly popular, and our development, The 1840, St George’s Gardens in London’s Borough of Wandsworth is no exception.
Whilst The 1840, St George’s Gardens – an outstanding conversion of a Grade II listed building – offers a range of property types, the duplex apartments stand out for their modern design, spacious rooms, and sleek appearance, making them perfect for those with a fast-paced and modern lifestyle. Our duplex apartments at The 1840 not only have beautiful exteriors but the interiors are sure to impress any guest.
Many of our individually-crafted duplex apartments feature a double-height vaulted ceiling over the open plan kitchen, living and dining area, while others include striking restored features such as a spiral staircase, roof lanterns or access to private terraces. Providing both cosy, intimate zones and large, elegant areas perfect for entertaining, duplex apartments are a home to relish, whether enjoying a quiet night in or showing it off to friends.
With house-like floor plans, duplexes offer significantly more space and larger room configurations than traditional apartment layouts. The benefits of the separate zones in the living area go beyond practicality. The impressive mezzanine floor also creates a sense of spaciousness and adds to the overall aesthetic appeal of the residence.
A lighter home
The advantage of having two floors is that most rooms have windows or roof lanterns, allowing ample natural light to flood through and create a bright and warm atmosphere.
A highly desirable bridge between an apartment and a house, luxurious duplexes are a popular upgrade from typical apartment living and are often sought-after among downsizers.
Their flexible floorplans allow owners to have the freedom to turn the space into one that truly works for them. It is a blank canvas to call your own, with an opportunity to personalise the space and add your style. There is the option to live on the floor which includes the living room and kitchen, while the upper level offers bedrooms and a home office. Alternatively, you can switch and live on the upper level while utilizing the lower-level bedrooms for dedicated office spaces.
New build properties are often more energy-efficient than second-hand homes. Many of our duplexes benefit from under-floor heating and smart home technologies, as well as state of the art A+ rated appliances, fixtures and fittings to complete the high specification.
