HomeViews reviews tell us that the old mantra ‘location, location, location’ is as relevant as ever when it comes to property. Developments with high location scores tend to have high overall scores as well. And what could be better than a riverside location?
Firstly, London riverside property offers some of the best views in London. From the iconic skyline of Westminster and the London Eye to historic Greenwich and the skyscrapers of Canary Wharf, homes on the Thames offer a classic slice of the London experience. At night, the lights reflecting off the water add even more appeal to these vistas. Open skies reveal the full drama of every dawn and dusk in the big city.
Secondly, riverside homes give residents access to the glorious Thames path, Embankment and other highly appealing walks and amenities. Bars and restaurants along the Thames, whether on the South Bank, around London Bridge, or even further out at Richmond or Kingston, are second to none. Plus, the Thames Clipper riverboat services are a great alternative to the busy Underground.
A view to the future
Finally, riverside homes are consistently in demand, making them a secure investment. Studies show that living beside a body of water reduces stress and promotes an enhanced sense of calm. Buyers and tenants will pay for this!
