Decent place to live

The development is really nice – not as swanky as some of the others around but it’s older & hence cheaper. It does lack the sense of community of some of the other developments around. The layout is bit sparse but the views from the front flats are great.

 

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

Dislike: The nearest tube is a good 15 minutes walk away which is not ideal
Like: Marco Polo restaurant is great

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

That after 3 years I wouldn’t have really met any of my neighbours

Lovely but a bit boring

It’s a lovely place to live, well connected within 10 minutes walk of transport but far enough away to be quiet. Nothing much to do though, but new cafés keep popping up. Good pubs and restaurants. Great facilities and well looked after.

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

It feels a little insular and the people in the management office can be rather unhelpful. One you get to know them it’s ok though. Bus never works.

Lovely place to live

Riverside Quarter is a lovely place to live. The facilities are very well kept, the apartments are spacious and of a very good quality and the location is great – right by the river, parks, restaurants etc. The service is good but sometimes a bit slow to react to issues. I would definitely recommend

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

Marco Polo Italian restaurant has amazing food and great service
Wandsworth park
Bermondsey has great pubs and walking areas
The area can be a little quiet at times but it’s not far to get to central London

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

That the river bus was right on the doorstep – it goes straight to London

Pleasant development with some short-sighted elements

Verified Resident

A pleasant setting and nicely designed buildings, undermined by a fundamental inequality between the way social housing tenants and ‘normal’ tenants are treated. An example of this is that there is no parking access for shared ownership flats. There is a block with council flats which has strip-lit rooms, a seemingly abrasive and unnecessary design element. The doorway to these flats is small and utilitarian compared with the doorways that are manned by concierges. It feels as if help is given to those who need it, but it’s only given in part, and with reluctance. We access our (shared ownership) flat through a ‘poor door’ that doesn’t have any signage and is at the back of the building so very hard for delivery drivers to find.
The flat itself is really pleasant, lots of light and balcony space. The plumbing was faulty when we moved in but apart from this and a few pipe leaks it has been fine and we enjoy living there. the area has an excellently new coffee shop which is a great addition, and the local pub is one of the best in SW London.
Hyperoptic broadband is a big winner, SSE energy is less of a winner!

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

Good cafe and pub, a Sainsbury’s local and other off-license. A very decent park nearby

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

Wish I had known the utility provider was locked in and can’t be changed for a better rate or more sustainable supplier

Modern apartments with a view

Verified Resident

The apartments in Riverside Quarter are very modern and feature lovely spacious balconies. We live in a front row apartment and have great direct views over the river. We can see both sunrise and sunset from our balconies.
The gym and SPA facilities are great to have right in the apartment buildings. The gym equipment in modern and the SPA features a pool, hot tub, sauna and steam room.
The neighbours are very friendly.
The shuttle bus to an from the tube station is very convenient, as the buildings would otherwise be quite hard to reach with public transport (10-15 minute walk to the stations).

Great balcony for outdoor living

We viewed a flat not right on the river but I could look out across the river to green trees and Hurlingham park (that day it was covered in snow and looked incredible!). What do I love? I love the indoor/ outside living they have created with really generous terrace sizes which means
The distance from Wandsworth Town and Putney is a pain, it is definitely no mans land in terms of location and I think I would drive or get an uber to places as factoring in a bus or walk to a station adds a lot onto the journey time. A parking space is a lot (think currently about £45k) and it was quite hard to find street parking nearby.

Riverside Quarter offer unique, well designed homes

The Riverside Quarter is an affordable and well thought out development on the south side of the Thames. The front row of buildings was completed 12 years ago and since then new buildings have been added. 2 Bedroom apartments range from GBP745,000 to GBP1.4 million. The amenities are fantastic: There is a 24 hour concierge on a one between two building system. There is also a gym, sauna, pool and steam room. The pool is on ground level and has a view of the river. There is one more building going up in the development which will be complete in 2020 with another gym and swimming pool. There is a residents shuttle bus that runs in the morning and evenings every 15 minutes to East Putney and Putney station. The Thames Clipper also has a stop on the dock in front of the development with services that run towards Westminster and Embankment. Car Parking spaces are available at GBP45,000 and the lifts from the car park go directly to floor of your apartment. 70 per cent of buyers are owner/ occupiers. Lots of effort has clearly been put into this development from the twice annual residents social gatherings to the design of the balconies in the buildings behind those on the river; they are at an angle so that even if there is a building in front of you, you will still get views of the river. Ground Floor commercial space has gone to design studios and architects among other things. The west side of the Riverside Quarter development backs onto Wandsworth Park which makes it very unique; to be in central London and be on the river and adjacent to parkland. The development is fairly secluded, but it gives it a nice and quiet atmosphere, and it is only 10 minutes walk from Putney that is busy with cafes and bars. It is slightly out of the way and the immediate surrounding area isn’t particularly active in terms of social life you have to walk to Putney. However, the design, amenities, and placement of this development on the river certainly makes worth considering seriously. With the park seconds away, the river in front and the fact that it is fairly quiet would make it a very attractive place if you were to live here with children. If you are looking for a development next to busy social life with easy transport links, maybe this is not the place for you. Although the riverboat services are pretty authentic it is not very practical in terms of getting in and out of London.

Riverside Quarter offers great value property in family friendly Putney

Riverside Quarter is an incredibly well thought out development around 2 years from completion. Found on the riverside in residential, family friendly Putney. The developers have made sure in each building, each apartment has access to river views, with balconies on the side of all flats facing south, rather than onto the river. This is incredibly attractive and makes all flats really desirable. Furthermore, there are no buildings blocking the river view if one of the towers is further back than another. There is a small discrepancy at Riverside Quarter between service charge in each building, the reason being wasn’t made clear. However, the service charge is incredibly small at a fee averaging around GBP4 per square foot. There are 7am 7pm concierges which are shared between two buildings. This once again stands out as other lots have one concierge stationed in one building. There is an underground carpark with each space costing a stand alone fee of GBP45,000 which is significantly lower than other developments, close by on the other side of the river. More importantly, unlike other developments where the car park is isolated, the parking spaces run under the whole development and there are lifts up to buildings and flats. All in all a really good, well thought out development

This new quarter offers a tranquil riverside setting in popular Wandsworth Town

In the leafy environs of Wandsworth in southwest London, is the mixed use development of Riverside Quarter. Located on the banks of the Thames, with views across to Hurlingham Park, this vibrant community is an ideal choice for families in particular, looking for peaceful place to put down roots in the capital. With some of the best schools, shops and parks in the surrounding area, Wandsworth has increasingly become a popular choice for growing families and young professionals. The site was developed by Frasers Property and designed by a team including Carey Jones, Roz Barr and Lori Pinkerton Rolet Architects. The one, two, three and four bedroom apartments are split across three buildings between nine and 16 storeys, in amongst landscaped gardens overlooking the river. Expect to pay in the region of GBP998 per square foot (which equates to a starting price of around GBP745,000), which is just slightly over the average for SW18. Riverside Quarter is an environmentally friendly development that uses eco friendly design and technology to reduce its carbon footprint.

This site may feel a little out of the way for some, if theyve been used to being in the thick of it in the past. The nearest station is Wandsworth, with overground trains running to Waterloo (13 minutes) and Clapham Junction (3 minutes). There are also regular bus services and the Thames Clipper service that runs to Blackfriars, if you want an alternative to taking the train. Whats more, the A3 is easily accessible, from which you can travel to the south and west of the UK. Location wise, its highly sought after. Wandsworth is just across the river from Chelsea, Knightsbridge and South Kensington, and all the first class shops, restaurants and culture that they serve up. In Wandsworth itself, a lot of work continues to be done to keep it in line with its fashionable neighbours Southside Shopping Centre is benefiting from a major rehaul and other high end developments are bringing even more custom to the local pubs, such as The Ship and The Cats Back, and independent eateries in the area.

Within the Riverside Quarter, residents can enjoy leisure facilities like an indoor swimming pool with views across the river, a Jacuzzi and fully equipped gym. Theres also an on site restaurant and supermarket if you find theres nothing in the cupboards. Outdoor space comes in the form of landscaped gardens and a tree lined square, which, when matched with the waterside setting, makes for a really appealing spot. A 24 hour concierge service is available, along with secure parking at GBP45,000 per space. When it comes to the interior and the exterior of the buildings, everything is clean and contemporary, but there is nothing of note. In fact, the exteriors have started to look a tiny bit dated with their blue and white façades, especially when compared to other recent waterside developments. Apartments feature Gaggenau appliances in the kitchens, and plenty of storage space, which is a useful feature for families in particular.

Buyers might also want to take a look at Battersea Reach and The Ram Quarter.
