St Georges Church, Kew, London, TW8
This exquisite church conversion moments from Kew Bridge is a unique development of 2 and 3-bedroom luxury apartments
in one of London’s premier locations.
A truly magnificent opportunity to live riverside in a small community of just 20 properties and relish the incredible lifestyle these homes offer.
Few neighbourhoods can boast Michelin-starred restaurants for supper, Kew Gardens for a Sunday stroll or Chiswick High Street for that special gift, plus excellent transport links into Central London, the City and beyond.
This historical former church building has been renovated with the architectural integrity and detail it deserves.
IDM are extremely proud of their St Georges development. We have worked hard to keep elements of the original design within the renovation in order to preserve its past within the transformation.
