This fifth floor apartment right on the edge of the river is in the perfect location for enjoying the views of London whilst enjoying the tranquillity of a high rise apartment.
The hallway is decorated with prints and paintings and leads into the very spacious living and dining area. This features various comfy sofas and chairs as well as a large dining table, easily capable of entertaining four guests. There is also a dark wood study desk if you need to attend to some paperwork. At the far end of the room is another little sitting area, with views of the River Thames.
The kitchen is semi-open to the living/dining area and has all the modern amenities you'll need during your stay including oven, hob, dishwasher and microwave. For washing your clothes, there is a communal laundry downstairs where you can use the washing machines and tumble dryers.
The master bedroom features a king-sized bed and lots of built-in storage space. The guest room has a single bed which can be set up as a double, bedside tables, mirrored built-in wardrobe.
The bathroom has a large walk-in shower, loo, sink and the impressive tiling and mirrors adding a luxury feel to this space.
The apartment is positioned south of the river, in the beautiful area of Battersea which is home to the Pump House Gallery and Battersea Park Zoo. The annual Oxford vs Cambridge Universities Boat Race begins just to the West in Putney and passes this stretch of the Thames, and the area boasts a good range of pubs, bars and restaurants; good ones to try are Jack’s Place, The Fish Place and Chez Manny and a great local pub is the Duke of Cambridge on Battersea Bridge Road. The Butcher and Grill is an interesting mix of butcher shop and informal restaurant as well as being a café/patisserie.
Battersea Park is the nearest rail station, a 15 minute walk away, or Queenstown Road rail station is only 20 minutes’ walk. Clapham Junction is the nearest overground line station, less than a 20 minute walk to the South.
From the bus stop just a minute or so away, there are many buses which will take you to Chelsea, Knightsbridge, Kensington, Victoria, Borough, Aldgate and the City.
Wandsworth is centred around the large Common, a public park similar to Clapham Common, and the river front towards Battersea is a former wharf area that now hosts apartment blocks, several bars and restaurants. Set back from the river towards Wandsworth Town train station is Old York Road, a little street with restaurants and shops which used to be the former centre of old Wandsworth. This spreads to an area of grander semi-detached and detached houses which is often desired by city workers, lawyers and other professionals because they retain their Victorian character and are very spacious - ideal for families with children of varying ages.
Another of Wandsworth's most historic and impressive buildings is the Royal Victoria Patriotic Building, which sits amongst the common grounds off Trinity Road. It was originally built to house orphan girls during the Crimean War but now contains flats, a theatre school and a high-end restaurant called ‘Le Gothique.’
For shopping and entertainment there is the Southside centre which houses a Waitrose, a gym and many other big brand shops. Behind this is King George's Park which follows the River Wandle upstream towards Earlsfield and further south to Wimbledon. It is home to picturesque ponds, tennis courts, football pitches and cycle paths.
Neighbouring Putney’s high street has many nice pubs and restaurants and even hosts a farmer’s market at the weekend. Along the river front near Putney Bridge there are some pubs offering more upmarket dining such as The Boathouse, The Star & Garter and the Half Moon Pub. This is also the starting location for the historic, annual Oxford and Cambridge Boat Race, which started in 1829 and now takes place every year around Easter.
