This development has really surprised us. We lived in Kensington Green (W8) before, and for the same rent we are getting 50% more space, with fantastic facilities, and a brand new, high spec apartment with great views of the river. It makes for a compelling alternative to more central, condensed living. We were worried about the location, because the top of Fulham Palace Road is pretty grotty, but in fact weve been pleasantly surprised. The riverside offers easy access to Chiswick and Barnes, and of course Fulham is close. There are plenty of pubs and kids playgrounds within easy access, and the atmosphere at weekends around the river is good; mainly families, people rowing, and others on bikes or running. Hammersmith Broadway offers shopping essentials within 5-10 mins walk, and very good tube connectivity on the Piccadilly line. Waitrose and M&S are within a walk, and the new Tesco Express which has opened on site is helpful – although it doesn’t stock much fresh food. The Blue Boat pub on the river front is also a plus; solid food and a family atmosphere (most of the time).
