Absolutely amazing

Verified Resident

One I first moved in, everything was amazing. Very spacious and modern, and we moved in new. The facilities in this apartment including kitchen and bathroom are top notch. This development also comes with 24hr concierge for peace of mind.

How has the building management responded to any problems or issues you have raised?

Building management respond to problems immediately, for example I had a problem with the ceiling that was leaking, and the next day someone was being to fix the issue. I cannot fault

Please tell us what you like and dislike about this area:

This area is very nice, safe. My house is right next to Sainsbury’s. There’s many good schools locally which I take my little one.

Please share one thing (or more) which you wish you had known before you moved in:

Nothing at all, everything was perfect

Great view, river can bring on bugs.

Verified Resident

The building is really looked after! When we first moved in it was completed but now everything is done and it all looks great! I wish there were more facilities like a spa or there cafe the promised to give us.

If there was one thing you would change about your flat or property what would it be?

Be able to put bbq on the balcony, that would be nice.

Please tell us what you like and dislike about this area:

I like the view, the location as a whole. The quietness. I dislike that why haven’t finished the area. Too many bugs! Because of the river. It can be loud from the helicopters!!

Please share one thing (or more) which you wish you had known before you moved in:

Service charge! How high it would be.

Near the river, beautiful view.

Verified Resident

My building is really nice, my first impressions of it were that it was nice and modern, that’s the reason for why I decided to live here. It’s a nice and quiet area to live in too. The building management have responded really quick to my issues.

It’s quiet, and I don’t dislike anything.

Nothing I did my research before moving in.

Really nice location that’s not too busy

Verified Resident

My first impressions of the building was that it was very clean and modern, and it had a really nice courtyard! It’s also Maintained really well from now on. The building management is really quick to response. Our post box was broken into and they were on top of the issue straight away! The rooms are incredibly spacious too.

How has the building management responded to any problems or issues you have raised?

They’ve responded really quick and efficiently to our issues, better than most building managements in our buildings.

Please tell us what you like and dislike about this area:

I like that it’s far enough from the city that it’s not busy, the location. I wish we were closer the tube!

Please share one thing (or more) which you wish you had known before you moved in:

I did a lot of research before moving in so nothing.

The view of my building is amazing

Verified Resident

My building is really nice, it’s kept clean and maintained really well. There are cleaners that come to the building every week, and every few days. The facilities all round are great and nothing is wrong with them. Our boiler was broken recently and they came quickly and fixed everything efficiently for us.

How has the building management responded to any problems or issues you have raised?

They’ve responded really fast, the problem with the Boiler was fixed quickly.

Please tell us what you like and dislike about this area:

I like the view of the river, the transport links are okay around here making it easy to get around. There’s not much to dislike about the area, there not much crime around here either.

Please share one thing (or more) which you wish you had known before you moved in:

How busy the area is, when it’s rush hour and when I’m leaving for work it can get quite hectic.

Fulham Riverside – West London riverside living at a reasonable price

Perched on the north bank of the Thames sits Fulham Riverside, bringing over 460 homes to the SW6 area. It was developed by Barratt Developments, with Broadway Malyan and Fabrik landscape architects taking care of the design side of things. Its in a popular location that will appeal to many buyers looking for west London riverside living. You can expect to pay around GBP695,000 for a one bed flat to around GBP5million for a five or six bedroom terraced townhouse the price per square foot is around GBP942, which is slightly under the average for this area. One of the standout features of the development is the communal landscaped garden area, which includes a three metre waterfall, badminton court, croquet, outdoor chess tables, and a maze and stepping stones for little ones. Another aspect of the complex, which may divide potential buyers is the inclusion of a 120,000 sq ft Sainsburys superstore a useful convenience, without doubt, but perhaps not the most attractive of frontages to be greeted with.

Inside the Fulham Riverside apartments, theres a balanced mix of feminine and masculine accents throughout the interiors. Kitchens come complete with Miele appliances and Silestone worktops, while the bathrooms have tiling to the walls and floors with a sleek contemporary aesthetic, and bedrooms include plenty of fitted wardrobe space to store your belongings. All the homes have private outdoor space with enviable views across the gardens or river. Buyers can choose between three unique layouts, giving you the freedom to design your space around your needs. Residents can also enjoy a 24 hour concierge service, a fitness suite for residents and, of course, the giant Sainsburys. Car parking spaces are available for an extra GBP600 a year.

The closest station to Fulham Riverside is Imperial Wharf Overground station, which connects with the likes of West Brompton, Clapham Junction and Kensington Olympia from which you can access the Tube and major terminals. It is slightly tucked away and thus tricky to find on foot, but this affords it a relatively quiet spot in an otherwise buzzing capital. Its a 15 minute walk to both Fulham Broadway and Parson Green, which wont faze some people, but others may view it as a bit of a trek. There are however plenty of bus routes and the Thames Clipper at Chelsea Harbour, if travelling above ground is preferred. The surrounding area is almost village like, with plenty of boutiques, bars and restaurants in Fulham and Chelsea, which are sure to appeal to young professionals and families in particular. Theres culture on tap in this neck of the woods, with venues such as the Saatchi Gallery, the VandA Museum and the Royal Albert Hall all within easy reach. Restaurants such as Will Rickers esteemed Eight Over Eight, Toms Kitchen in Chelsea, and the popular gastropub The Ship, just over Wandsworth Bridge, are all worth venturing out of the development to visit.

Fulham Riverside is Perfect for Families

Recently went and visited Fulham Riverside now they have completed Stage one of the build and have Sold off most of the properties (remaining properties that were left were 4 floor townhouses) and from what I was greeted with it is a modern, friendly development with plenty of Green Space and a pleasant atmosphere. Both a Child friendly and fun place, the location of Fulham Riverside is ideal for anyone who is looking for a calmer version of all the perks of living in buzzing London. The development is a good size and not overwhelmingly huge or intimidating, furthermore, its pram and wheel chair friendly with plenty of lift access. The area is a safe place for Children to be in, with the small exception of incredibly fast cyclists being around the site at all times, however the Space on the roof seems to be safe and well designed. Furthermore, there are bus stops near by as well as Parsons Green Tube station, but the walk there is on a fast road off Wandsworth Bridge, which could be an issue with young children. With an affordable service charge of GBP2 compared to that of other developments in the surrounding area, you get what you pay for, with little to none of the extra amenities you can find at other properties such as cinemas, pools and bars. The issue with many of these new developments, which also can be found at Fulham Riverside is waste disposal. If you own a flat on the top floor of the development you must take it down yourself. Having spoken to the real estate agent, the general demographic of the development is families who will live in properties full time, this is a huge benefit as it should create a community rather than an area which holds empty investment flats, so perfect for young families who are looking for a beautiful area with good schools and plenty of things to do in the area. Additionally there is planning permission on site for a Creche!

Fulham Riverside has a lot of potential

Fulham Riverside is a development by Barratt Homes with a lot of potential to reshape the property market in the fulham area. Its competitive pricing puts it in good stead with annual ground rent starting from GBP375 for a one bedroom property or a starting price of GBP693,000. The development is ideal for commuters being a mere 10 minutes walk from Imperial Wharf station, from which a train to Waterloo would take you 19 minutes and a train to Gatwick would take 47 minutes. It is ideally located within the Fulham area as it is very much on the periphery of the core shopping area where one sees much congestion. Therefore one could describe it as a relatively quiet spot in London especially given its proximity to the river. However this peace and quiet is slightly disrupted by the nearby London heliport, located on the opposite side of the river, it is usually very busy most times of the week. Fulham Riverside isn’t exactly in keeping with the numerous terraced houses that populate fulham, some may see it as too much of a contrast to the local area. This may not sink in at first though as if one has an apartment facing the river you are confronted by the towering buildings of fulham reach on the opposite bank which admittedly are slightly intimidating. The site also may not seem that appealing from the exterior given its location above the largest Sainsburys superstore in the area covering 100000 square feet. It runs both along the facade of the development and underneath it. But this can also be seen as convenient for local residents who do not have to venture far for groceries. The development has a relatively low service charge per square foot at around GBP3. This can be seen as advantageous as many residents hardly use the vast amenities provided to them yet are forced to pay for their upkeep. However for those who do want to make use of the amenities such as the gym within fulham riverside they may be disappointed by its small size and lack of other facilities such as a swimming pool. The security on the site is 24/7 with guards roaming the grounds to reassure residents that they are in safe hands. The first phase of development is unfortunately sold out therefore if one was keen to buy a property within the development you would be looking to purchase within the second phase which is due to be completed in 2019.

An ideal family development

I went to Fulham riverside hoping to find a modern development that is also very accommodating for families of four or larger. The developments proximity to local parks such as south park certainly lends it to being an ideal family location, and its riverside location would allow for nice weekends walks. It also has an on site park in the centre of its first phase. Whilst the park is very pleasing it doesn’t seem very child friendly with lots of open water structures and narrow paths leading around gardens leading to a lack of open space. Having said that the gardens are full of outdoor games for children with table tennis courts, a maze as well as badminton courts overlooking the thames. Fulham riverside is also in the vicinity of lots of well renowned schools for all ages, however I worry about encountering traffic from putney bridge whilst leaving the development in the morning for the school run. Its proximity to sainsburys is definitely a bonus, however it does mean a lot of foot traffic near the development during the day. But despite the mega sainsburys offering almost every product under the sun, the area is certainly lacking in other shops or restaurants so I may have to travel further a field for more specific products or even family meals out. The town houses they had for sale in their first phase of development seemed very bunched together and unappealing with strange yellow window attachments, they also currently look onto a building site that wont be completed until 2019 which made the idea of moving in less appealing as well.

Made to measure

We have been looking in the area and want more space than Imperial Wharf and Chelsea Creek offered for similar properties – the design and layout of Fulham Riverside seems to give us the internal and external space as well as parking. There are a number of developments in the area but we believe Fulham Riverside will offer us more of the lifestyle we want – with our own private outdoor area, security, and underground parking. The fitness suite is lovely but we are members of the Harbour club so I doubt we will use it.
With a young child we were pleased that the site includes a children’s play area and gardens and once we move in we look forward to using them in the summer.
