Living on the Thames

Riverside is an area much like any other, but its shape is very linear – and, of course, it has a river running through it. Its a market place that is diverse because of its nature, and has much to offer buyers and tenants.

The majority of property from Putney to Tower Bridge is modern, having been built in the last 20 – 30 years, and with some still being built today. Of course there are period properties as well, such as those on Cheyne Walk and Chelsea Embankment, for those who prefer more traditional English property.

The property on the river in Chelsea is largely Victorian or Edwardian, and the property further west in Hammersmith and Chiswick is extremely picturesque, offering a unique place to live just moments from the centre of town.

Much of the area in Shad Thames and further east has retained old wharfs and their period features.

The area surrounding the Tate Modern has become a cultural centre and property prices are very much on the increase.

Exciting developments with local amenities and plenty of tourist traffic make this one of the most bustling, fun areas on which to live near the river.

Property available in Riverside

Riverside has a lot to offer buyers and tenants. There is a spectrum of different types of property ranging from period property such as Georgian houses, Victorian mansion blocks, and modernist Bauhuas style apartments to very modern steel and glass buildings, some towering 50 stories into the sky. Or why not live on a house boat, moored on Cheyne Walk?

History

The Thames has dominated the centre of London for over 1000 years as an urban settlement and has been used as a means of transport, industry, trade and now mostly for residential and leisure purposes.

The Thames is one of the most important and famous of the world’s rivers.
