Fine & Country Richmond launches new property with NFT

Birch Brooke, designed and developed by Burbeck Capital

Premium estate agency, Fine & Country Richmond, the business that launched the world’s first super prime real estate NFT, has partnered with developers Burbeck Capital, part of the family run Burbeck Group, to launch another unique property that will exist in both the real world and the digital one.

Located in Barnes, SW13, the property, which is called Birch Brooke, is positioned as the final property of Rosslyn Avenue, on the verge of the Beverley Brook River. Described by the developer as one of West London’s most unique properties, the four-bedroom home is modern and elegant in its design yet ideal for family living and entertaining.

Sean Barrett, Managing Director of Fine & Country Richmond, says that home has a contemporary unilateral layout that offers the highest standard of fit out and interior design. “The interior design of the home will feature a hands-on, bespoke fit out ensuring that every material meets the highest expectations. Burbeck Capital is renowned for their exceptionally high standards, with their last development designed by Burbeck Interiors winning both the Best Residential Renovation / Redevelopment in London, as well as Best Residential Renovation / Redevelopment for the overall United Kingdom category at wider UK at the UK Property Awards 2021,” he says. “Some key features include handmade bespoke joinery, underfloor heating, and designer feature lighting. While form as been at the forefront of the home’s design, function has not been neglected. A fully fitted air flow ventilation system and air source heat pump will ensure the home is not only designed to the highest standards but continues to perform at this level too.”

Barrett continues, “aside from the four bedrooms, the home offers two ensuites, and a long entrance hall leading to a large open-plan kitchen living room. A dual aspect indoor/outdoor fireplace takes centre stage, with the outdoor kitchen and barbeque area at the rear creating additional space for entertaining.”

Jack Willcocks, Co-Founder and Managing Director of Burbeck Interiors, says: “At Burbeck we have always sought innovative and exciting projects, and work towards creating architecturally unique and beautiful properties that also prioritise function. Our passion for property led us to establish our holistic approach to design; Barnes Riverside is a development by Burbeck Capital with interiors by our award-winning sister company, Burbeck Interiors.

We are delighted to partner with Fine and Country Richmond on this project, they share our enthusiasm for innovation, supported by a strong foundation of knowledge in the property sector. For us, the collaboration on launching an NFT reflects an extension of our overall design, a metaverse piece of art that is also a digital asset.”

Barrett notes that as this home is unique in its design, it lends itself to being turned into a non-fungible token (NFT). “The NFT will be created to the exact specifications of the physical property, with the buyer of the physical property will be given the first rights of refusal on the purchase of the NFT. While owning a property within the metaverse is a relatively new concept, the market has been growing and continues to gain momentum. As I mentioned when we launched the previous property NFT, despite the recency of the metaverse innovation, according to a recent poll in YouGov, 29% of the population think that being able to own digital assets such as NFTs or virtual property and land in the Metaverse is a huge opportunity attracting investors around the world,” says Barrett.

“As the demand for virtual property and land grows, we will continue to see more and more properties that will be built in both physical and virtual worlds. Most of us have heard the expression attributed to Mark Twain – buy land, they’re not making it anymore. Purchasing virtual property is opening up new real estate opportunities for investors looking for something unique,” he concludes.

Birch Brooke will be launched on 13 July 2022. For more information about the property or the launch event contact
