Home buyers treated to Michel Roux canapes and champagne at Taplow Riverside Launch Event
1st August 2017
Not many of our house viewings involve a boat ride but this was no ordinary property viewing. Chiltern Relocation was invited to the prestigious opening of Taplow Riverside – a Berkeley Homes Development situated between the Thames and the Jubilee River and bordered by open countryside.
The invitation was an opportunity to view the newly released three story town houses with uninterrupted River views. However, this development also boasts something rather special. As part of the scheme, celebrity chef Michel Roux is opening his new restaurant – tentatively called Roux at Skindles – on the site of the once famous Skindles hotel on the Taplow Riverside site.
On arrival, we were welcomed by champagne and shown a modal of the scheme then ushered onto a boat for the short ride down the Thames to the development. We were greeted by classical guitar musician and the opportunity to meet the renowned chef Michel Roux Snr who was there to discuss the opening of his new restaurant next door in September/October. Delicious canapés were on offer for us to sample including smoked salmon and caviar and parmesan crisps with rare beef – delicious!
Far from being tucked away the development offers easy access to London and beyond with fast rail links from Taplow and Maidenhead into Paddington (journey time of 18 minutes) and close proximity to Crossrail which is due to open in 2019 (direct journey into Bond Street of 41 minutes).
As to the main event we were not disappointed! We viewed the show home a the river fronted townhouse with prices ranging from £2,225,000 – £2,500.000. The stunning interiors were well designed to incorporate the open plan kitchen/dining/living space. But it was difficult to draw your eyes away from the uninterrupted view of the Thames – outside there was a delightful patio area with small lawn garden leading to the private mooring.
On the first floor the focus of the wide windows draws you to the river view and the good sized lounge offers ample space to sit back and relax. There are two bedrooms on the first floor with a family bathroom and the top floor offers a stunning vaulted ceiling master suite with dressing area and en-suite and additional guest bedroom.
The launch event drew an interesting mix of buyers from London, China, UAE in addition to local buyers – demonstrating the growing interest in Riverside living.
Chiltern Relocation were delighted to enjoy this launch event and we look forward to visiting Michel Roux restaurant in October!
