In my opinion, it's been built a a micro-environment of nice units, from a converted old hospital plus new build in it's staff car park/ other ground. The negatives are it's not near tube or rail, for which they are providing a shuttle service to East Putney tube. There is a bus stop outside. It's very near Richmond Park so good for cycling. The downside is that it's not near any shops except for a few on Roehampton High St.
There is also an excellent brand new flat conversion at the bottom end of Roehampton Lane, in Putney SW15, a 4-5 minute walk from Barnes BR, and almost opposite the Roehampton Club 18 hole golf course. It is a development of 1 x 1 bed and 3 x 2 bed conversion apartments in Putney, London, SW15. At between approximately 600ft2 and 1000ft2, these are unusually large and well designed flats. Each apartment has been finished to a genuinely excellent standard and provide well designed modern and contemporary fit out based around the original shell of an Edwardian conversion. Each flat features granite worksurfaces, solid walnut flooring, high gloss two-tone kitchens, painted timber double glazed windows, down-lighting, underfloor heating (lower ground apt only), generous storage space and built to exceptional sound and thermal insulation standards. These modern apartments are only a 5 minute bike ride to central Putney. The Roehampton Club opposite additionally features tennis courts, 25 metre private indoor swimming pool, steam room, sauna and impressive gym and fitness studio. The view out of the first floor apartment - and its front balcony - is directly overlooking the tennis courts, and the main glazed building of the Roehampton Club which looks fabulous at night. The apartments are only a short walk to the Thames river with its wealth of benefits including rowing and sailing clubs, pubs, and the Barnes Wetland Centre.
