Imperial Wharf feels more like a swish resort than a residential community. This award-winning collection of homes from St George has bagged a prime setting on the north bank of the River Thames, surrounded by some ten acres of parkland, and between the exclusive areas of Chelsea and Fulham. Among the two, you’ll find designer boutiques, galleries, and fine dining restaurants, with a sprinkling of peaceful garden squares thrown in for good measure.
Carefully designed to mirror a fully-fledged neighbourhood, Imperial Wharf offers landscaped gardens and its own namesake train station, not to mention a great selection of shops, bars and eateries – all set out riviera-style on a leafy waterfront boulevard.
Everything here is geared up for stress-free living. There’s an onsite Tesco supermarket, a quality gym, and a 24-hour concierge service for everything from parcel deliveries to restaurant recommendations. There are also secure car parking facilities, but you’ll need to pay extra for a space. Payment is made either quarterly, bi-annually or annually.
Ultra-contemporary and smart, homes at Imperial Wharf offer open-plan living spaces, kitchens kitted out with all the mod-cons and, of course, full-height windows that let you appreciate the privileged Thames-side location. Most homes have balconies as standard, too. Floorplans vary, and span one to four bedrooms, so you’re bound to find something that suits.
The aforementioned Imperial Wharf Station is part of the development, and it’s a well-connected Zone 2 offering, with direct links to Clapham Junction, Kensington and Shepherd’s Bush. Within a 15-minute walk there’s also Fulham Broadway, which is serviced by the District line. And if you’d rather swap train for boat, you can catch a Thames Clipper river-taxi to the City and Canary Wharf from Chelsea Harbour, just next door.
Imperial Wharf is a riverside development in west London with its own railway station and branch of Sainsbury’s and Tesco. The buildings are excellent and the apartments are well designed. No wonder I get requests from letting agents through my door almost every day.
Please review the location of this development:
So we have a Tesco and Sainsbury’s on the development but if you want restaurants,pubs or other shops you will need to get the bus/train to Clapham Junction or Shepherds Bush/Westfield.
Please share one thing (or more) which you wish you had known before you moved in:
That my property would be so desirable and I would get constant hassle from letting agents
Located next to Chelsea Creek, which is a remarkable development (albeit very expensive), Imperial Wharf does feel a little dated. But I guess when the development next to Chelsea Creek goes up the same will be said of that?!
The flats are of a good size & the 2 bed flat I viewed was really well laid out; the open plan kitchen & living room was great with the kitchen almost tucked around the corner to give a feeling of a separate room but with all the benefits of open plan. The bedrooms were a decent size too.
There did seem to be a lot of ‘youths’ hanging around outside the lovely pub on site overlooking the river & Battersea heliport – with a constant stream of helicopters!
Please review the location of this development:
Close to the Kings Road, on the river, lots of shops, restaurants pubs etc.
Imperial Wharf is excellently located – just a 5 minute walk to the Kings Road and a little further to Fulham Road. The transport links are great. The overground is just over the road, which takes you one stop across the river to Clapham Junction or up to Shepherds Bush for shopping at Westfield and accsss to the central line. The development itself has a 24 hour concierge with lovely staff as well as a gym. There is an option to buy a pass to the underground parking too. The site is mostly pedestrianised, so it’s great for children. It’s a short walk to the river, past a supermarket, a couple of restaurants and a great pub. I love living here as the flats are high spec and come with high speed internet and airconditioning. I feel that our flat offers good value for money, but when you factor in the additional cost of the parking, I feel that it may be better if you were not a car owner!
Please tell us what you like and/or dislike about this location:
The location is great as it is by the river and has good transport links to the overground, tube and buses, as well as the Thames Clipper. There are a few restaurants nearby but I would love to see more casual restaurants and cafes in the surrounding area, as there are not many places within a 5 minute walk that you can go to relax, especially with children
Please share one thing (or more) that you wish you had known before you moved in:
I wish I’d have known that the car parking season ticket could not be paid for monthly, only on a 3 month, 6 month or yearly payment, and that the cost rises quite considerably each year
