Apartment | 1 bedrooms | sleeps 2
Wandering out the back of this impressive modern development it is hard to imagine this section of the Thames path was once dominated by Shire-drawn brewery drays. Today sadly the horses are gone, but the walkway still clings to the great river for an impressive 180 miles. Nestled neatly between Battersea and Wandsworth Park this stylish riverside apartment is set up high on the 5th floor, perfectly positioned to overlook the view beyond. (Don't worry there is an elevator).

The Kitchen is separated by a handy breakfast bar and comes fully equipped with all you would expect.

Upmarket Chelsea forms a latticework of safe and quiet streets, peopled by monied Londoners, literary types and the native 'Sloane Rangers' who choose the area for its bustling cafes, independent businesses and artisan restaurants. The area's main thoroughfare is the King's Road, a delightful mix of chain stores and high-end boutiques. The area is home to the impressive exhibitions at the Saatchi Gallery, the horticultural displays of the Chelsea Physics Garden and the splendor of Sir Christopher Wren's Royal Hospital, which plays annual host to the Chelsea Flower Show. You take a hop over to the river's southern bank to reach charming Battersea, towered over by the decommissioned Power Station. Nearby sits Battersea Park, replete with fountains and boating lakes, delightful gardens, a small children's zoo and the magnificent Peace Pagoda.
