Bordering Chiswick and Kew, this apartment offers a wonderful lifestyle with ease of access to so many great places.
Standing on Kew Bridge gazing westwards along the Thames, enjoy a moments pause as you take in all in front of you. Sunlight glints off water as oars break the surface, spin a quarter turn, fly back, turn, dip, enter the water and repeat as crews sweep along the river's surface under the coxswain’s watchful eye.
To your right, the north side of the river, stands a riverside development by St George, the company whose projects include One Blackfriars, Filmworks, Chelsea Creek and many others, this development, with apartments ranging up to three million pounds, caught our client’s attention and they bought from new.
'Kew Bridge' is a stylish environment that includes communal grounds with water features, access to the riverside promenade and includes 'One Over The Ait', a converted Victorian warehouse run by Fullers, beside it, 'The Stable', a Pizza, Pie and Cider restaurant. There's a Costa coffee beside the bridge, a Sainsbury's local and Hammonds Butchers and Delicatessan, somewhere your eyes are likely to be larger than your stomach, but then you'll have plenty of opportunity to return and sample different treats.
For residents there is private underground parking, a fitness suite and twenty-four-hour concierge.
Chiswick is just down the road and if you continue across the bridge to the south side of the river, you enter Kew Green, in all around thirty acres of Crown Estate beside the Royal Botanic Gardens. As you pause and consider all this, it strikes you what a wonderful place this must be to live.
For our clients, there were also other considerations that brought them here. Often travelling overseas for work, this setting, for them, within walking distance of Chiswick headquarters, the convenience of getting into central London, Kew Station moments away, just past the Express Tavern, somewhere our clients enjoy, it has a great garden area they say, all these things were important considerations.
Getting to airports, using buses to Ealing, Brentford, Kingston, Richmond and Hammersmith, it all seems so easy and ultimately you return to this lovely spot by the river.
