A BRIDGE SPAN away is Twickenham, which may lack the cachet of Richmond but also has greenery, open space and river scenes to offer. Add a useful high street, good state and private schools, 20-minute trains to central London and lower property prices than Richmond, and you can see why it’s popular.
Brewery Gate, right, is a scheme of 28 Georgian-style townhouses with portico entrances, first-floor terraces and rooftop dormers alongside the River Crane, which joins the Thames at Twickenham. These homes are part of a bigger development that has created a new town centre hub with a public square, restaurants and a theatre venue. There is also a direct pedestrian link to the train station. Prices from £1.5 million. Call St James on 020 3642 9714.
