About Somerset Road, Richmond

All Somerset Road homes incorporate leading energy efficiency measures, including rooftop solar cells which help reduce annual electricity bills and service charges for residents. Cells on the houses feed directly to residents' individual electricity supplies, reducing their annual bills. Meanwhile, cells on the apartments are used to feed the landlord supply for lower service charges.
Each resident at the development is provided with on-site parking, along with a communal podium garden for all to enjoy.
