St Julians, Pender Gardens, Pender Gardens
Pendergardens is a prestigious self-contained development covering an area of 18,500m2 strategically located in St Julians, close to the busy shopping and entertainment areas, offering all the amenities of a metropolitan centre, yet with all the comforts and security of an exclusive community, where everything is within easy reach.
The development ranges from low rise 2 storey buildings to exclusive high rise residential towers. Plots for semi-detached villas average 215m2 with only 40% of the overall area being built on. Pendergardens is car free and surrounds a large piazza creating a peaceful and tranquil setting. Private and public open spaces are designed with the relaxing, healthy yet practical lifestyle of future residents in mind.
The choice of properties at Pendergardens is varied and imaginatively designed. Options include 3 bedroom family units in semi-detached blocks, studio, 1 and 2 bedroom apartments, many with open sea, town and country views. There are also 16 plots for detached and semi-detached villas with pool. These plots will be accessed through a private landscaped road. Prospective buyers are given various options on finishes prepared by top Interior Designers.
We have been conditioned to think of flats as longish, quite narrow spaces with a corridor and rooms off it, with natural light coming through the front windows and the electric light permanently on at the back, a central service shaft and a third bedroom carved out of some odd angle where a couple of hamsters might possibly be comfortable, but nobody else.
But Pendergardens changes those misconceptions. Most of its apartment layouts come in squarish shapes, with natural light flooding in from opposite sides and walls only where absolutely necessary – for privacy in the bedrooms and bathrooms, to keep the utility room out of sight, and at times to create some hint of division in the apartments having large open spaces serving as a kitchen, living room and dining area (the bright white kitchen also has its own breakfast bar).
Pendergarden apartment boast of large and well lit bedrooms and exquisitely finished bathrooms, with most layouts having an ensuite bathroom or shower, as well as a separate lavatory for visitors. Best of all, there’s practically no actual corridors and no rooms which look like they have been crammed in to make up the numbers. The feeling is of a house and not a flat – that sense of space and sensibly sized rooms.
Unlike many new-builds, this is a good space for a family or two people who like the luxury of having an extra room or two.
Most apartments come with a very comfortably-sized and private terrace, at times large enough to fit a Jacuzzi, a table and some chairs or maybe a comfortable sofa to sit on with a drink in the evening. The double-glazed windows, necessary in a bustling area like St Julian’s and also especially useful in conserving heating and cooling.
A good part of Pendergardens has now been completed and the first residents have moved in and have started experiencing the exquisite lifestyle that this urban, contemporary development has to offer. A number of fully furnished showflats are also available for viewing.
