Valentine Place, a new development just off Blackfriars Road SE1, has just launched its new show apartment and marketing suite. It’s certainly good timing, with Valentine’s Day just around the corner, after all, what says I love you better than a brand new apartment?

Grand romantic gestures aside, the two-bedroom show apartment has been dressed by leading interior designers Honky, in a contemporary yet elegant style and has large feature windows. Immersed in the rich history of the surrounding area, the building was previously the Maltina flour mill and bakery, and the original façade of the building has been conserved.

Valentine Place comprises 42 one, two and three bedroom apartments, penthouses and duplexes, as well as five freehold mews houses set around a central courtyard garden. The development will also include 19 affordable homes and 24,000 sq ft of commercial space.

‘The location of Valentine Place is truly unique,’ says Julia Reynolds, Sales & Marketing Director at Crest Nicholson. ‘It’s at the heart of London’s cultural quarter, with everything the Cut and the South Bank have to offer on the doorstep and just a short stroll to Waterloo and Southwark stations.

‘We have designed Valentine Place to be sympathetic to the heritage of the original building as well as the local area, while providing contemporary living accommodation finished to an exceptionally high quality. The show apartment is truly special, designed with our discerning potential buyers in mind it displays contemporary elegance in its styling, offering a glimpse into the lifestyle on offer at Valentine Place, the first launch of the three developments within our SE1 portfolio.’

Prices at Valentine Place start at £735,000 and first completions are due in late summer 2016. Valentine Place is one of three developments in Southwark by Crest Nicholson, the others are Snowsfields Yard in Bermondsey, launching in February, and Brandon House in Borough to follow later this year.
