London Evening Standard (West End Final B) - ES Homes and Property - - New Homes -

WITH its royal con­nec­tions and pretty river­side lo­ca­tion, well-to-do Wind­sor and satel­lite vil­lages such as Datchet seem fur­ther than 20 miles from the Thames-side re­gen­er­a­tion zones of cen­tral Lon­don.

Lo­cal plan­ners have re­sisted plant­ing flashy Dock­lands-style flats along the water­front — too vul­gar, per­haps, for a town with a cas­tle — and are much hap­pier with tra­di­tional de­signs for this his­toric set­ting. Mon­tague Mews, left, is a gated scheme of nine large Re­gency-style houses with the kind of in­ter­nal lay­out that modern fam­i­lies crave. The stand­out fea­ture is a ground floor su­per-room span­ning the en­tire width of the prop­erty com­bin­ing a kitchen, din­ing and lounge space that opens on to the gar­den. Prices from £694,995.
