This well-presented 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom third floor apartment (lift) is set within a well respected Mansion Block in Putney, with some of the best and nearby sporting events such as; Wimbledon tennis, The Oval cricket ground, Fulham & Chelsea football club and Twickenham Rugby club. The apartment is ideally placed for the start of the famous Oxford and Cambridge Boat Race.
Putney is a popular leafy area of South West London, set on the River Thames with excellent transport links into the West End of London. There are wonderful riverside walks and the embankment is usually buzzing with rowers, runners and walkers enjoying the Putney vibe almost like ‘the countryside’ in London. There are lots of places to eat on the riverside and a bustling high street for all your shopping needs, including many supermarkets for stocking up on food and essential items.
Putney is linked to Fulham, another affluent neighbourhood, on the northern side of the Thames, by Putney Bridge, which is the only bridge in the country to have churches on both sides. And little more than 100 metres upstream from this bridge are the University Boat Race Stones, which mark the starting and finishing points of the famous Oxford and Cambridge Boat Race, a tradition that dates back to 1829. A stroll over the bridge Bishop’s Park and Fulham Palace is a beautiful and peaceful place to visit with a fantastic cafe serving delicious cakes, fresh soup, salads and sandwiches. Fulham Palace is free to enter and is truly a hidden gem of peace and quiet set in beautiful grounds. We love to follow the seasons in the walled garden followed by a cup of tea at the Drawing Room café.
Favourite haunts on the Lower Richmond Road are Hudsons Restaurant and The Grind coffee shop. Hudsons is a very popular community restaurant, great value and the food is always good. They have a happy hour every evening and offer bar snacks and a well- balanced menu.
The Grind is an antipodean run coffee bar that serves delicious home-made cakes, smoothies and the owners children swear by the Brunch. Often packed with lycra clad rowers, as are the other Deli – style cafes in the areas.
On a Saturday there is a fabulous Farmer’s Market in the Duke of York Square on The Kings Road in Chelsea (No 22 bus). There is the most amazing selection of delicious food and drink to eat there and to take home. Perfect for a family lunch
The river is always buzzing with action. In Putney, there is always somewhere to go, something to do and so convenient for the West End theatre land, the museums and much, much more.
This home is set on the 3rd floor (lift) with bird’s eye views over the river and beyond to Bishop’s Park and Fulham Palace. Just meters away from riverside walks and the buzzing vibe of the rowing clubs, runners and families on the embankment. The property sleeps 4 comfortably. The lift goes to the 3rd floor where the is a short flight of stairs over to the apartment. Approx 8 steps.

On the boundary of London’s Travel card Zone 2 and Zone 3, Putney is extremely well connected by public transport. Trains: The mainline railway station is about a10 minute walk where there are fast, frequent services to Waterloo (approximately 10 minutes). Richmond is 5 minutes in the opposite direction, as is Kew and the line goes to Windsor and Eton river-side. An owner favourite family outing is to catch the train into Waterloo and then walk along the Southern Embankment along past The Tate Modern to Borough Market. Then back and cross the river using the pedestrian Millennium Bridge to St Paul’s and catch a No 14 bus back to Putney. Tube: Putney has 2 tube stations; Putney Bridge and East Putney. Our property is next to the District Line with Wimbledon a few stops in the outbound direction. Inbound, we have easy access to Earls Court, South Kensington (museums), Kensington High Street, Paddington, Victoria, The Embankment and across to Tower (for the Tower of London). River Bus: Minutes from the apartment is Putney Pier, for the Thames Clipper river bus Route 6 which runs as a commuter service in the mornings and evenings and goes to Blackfriars. The owners enjoy using the river bus in the summers as a wonderful scenic route into central London or just enjoy a round trip with a bottle of wine, sit back and relax. Buses: There is a fantastic bus service with routes going to many destinations. On the High Street, the No 93 goes to Wimbledon Village and Wimbledon. The owner’s favourite is the No 22 which stops on the Lower Richmond Road near to the Mansions. The 22 goes to Parsons Green, Chelsea (The Kings Road), Sloane Square, Knightsbridge, Green Park (for Fortnum & Mason’s, Piccadilly, Leicester Square etc) and on to Oxford Street. A few minutes walk onto Putney Bridge and there are many other buses. Another owner favourite is the No.14 bus for South Kensington via Fulham and then through Knightsbridge (stops opposite Harrods) to Piccadilly and the West End.

Few items were missing, but we called the office and they were able to arrange everything for us. Overall excellent stay, staff members were very helpful and attentive even when we called them late in the evening.- Larry, Australia
We were pleasantly surprised when we arrived to the apartment. We wanted to rent something in Chelsea, but all of the homes were booked for our dates. Putney turned out to be an excellent area with great selection of shops and restaurants and we walked along the river on most of the days. Travel to the attractions was not too long either. We will book this apartment again for sure!- Pauline and Eric, USA
The decor of this place is wonderful and everything functioned well. Kitchen was well stocked and cleaned properly before our arrival. We also liked the linen and towels provided, as they were very soft and good quality material.- Warren, USA
Dave was great picking us up from the airport, everything went smootly even though our flight was majorly delayed. Lift was also a plus with our heavy suitcases. We loved the apartment, truly felt like home. Our greatest thanks for the sales team for the suggestion.- Mr and Mrs Brooks, USA
