A Film Lovers Retreat on the River Thames!
Movie aficionados will be drawn to this stylish apartment, a stone's throw from the river Thames.
The property itself has been stylishly converted from an old London tavern. Set over 2 floors, you enter the property on the ground floor, with the entrance opening onto a modern living area with an L-shaped sofa and 2 arm chairs readying themselves for a state of the art film projector screen. A top of the range lighting & sound system with black-out blinds complete the experience!
A contemporary glass wall leads through to a split dining area with the other half of the room made up as a bedroom. This clever use of space combines style with functionality. The dining area benefits from a large glass dining table with 6 chairs and separates the bedroom area with a double bed and chest of drawers.
The master bedroom is at the back of the property, complete with a large double bed, wine chiller and cinema projector screen. Sleek Scandinavian style furniture and a black & white colour scheme create a calming and contemporary feel. Extra guests can be accommodated with a pull out sofa bed. A roof terrace with a bbq, table and chairs leads on from this room.
Downstairs, you will find a luxurious shower room and a galley kitchen with modern appliances.
This property is ideally located, several minutes from Putney Bridge Underground Station, on the District Line, which takes you to the heart of Kensington in just 10 minutes. The neighbourhood is rich in restaurants and cafes and you can stroll across the bridge into Fulham for fashionable boutiques, or head down to the river for an atmospheric stroll.
Area Description: "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 Ã¢â‚¬ËœLe 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."
