Townhouses on the Thames

23/03/2018

Octagon have returned to London to launch Bishops Row, a terrace of nine elegant houses situated alongside the Fulham banks of the River Thames, ideally placed to watch the upcoming Cambridge vs Oxford Boat Race on Saturday 24th March.

These deceptively spacious townhouses, ranging from 4,375 – 6,150 sq ft, come with 4/5 bedrooms and 5 reception rooms, with access to the Thames towpath running between Putney and Hammersmith bridges.

One the ground floor, the enviable kitchen/breakfast/family rooms open onto private west-backing walled gardens, and feature modern linear cabinets in a dark satin lacquer finish, quartz worktops and top-of-the-range integrated Miele appliances. Marble effect panelling and bespoke bronze lighting creates a clean, modern finish in the open plan space. The study overlooks the front garden with its secure video entry gate.

To the first floor, the drawing rooms have modern limestone fireplaces, complemented by timber flooring and plush inset carpets, each leading onto a spacious rear terrace via double French doors. Across the hallway and behind glass doors sits the dining rooms with oak herringbone timber flooring and two floor-to-ceiling windows allowing even more light into the formal areas.

Additional accommodation includes a gym, wine room and cinema room on the lower ground floors, leading out to a unique covered courtyard garden with “walk on” glass ceiling and fireplace.

The sizeable master suites span the entire top level of each home, with large walk through dressing rooms and private balconies, offering views towards the river and Barnes Wetlands and beyond, while the marble en suite bathrooms are filled with natural daylight from the overhead light wells.

The fourth floors are home to a family bathroom and the additional double bedrooms, each featuring built in wardrobes and two enjoying en suites.

Innovative outdoor space includes the covered lower courtyard gardens, landscaped space to the front and rear, as well as private balconies and terraces. The pièce de résistance in outdoor living comes in the form of the roof top terraces from Plots 8 and 9, which give residents unbeatable views of the River Thames. Plot 9 will also feature a lift to all floors.

Octagon brought Kim Harvey of Kim Harvey Interiors onboard to create an aspirational scheme within the London townhouse. In addition to the high quality finishes and specifications synonymous with the Octagon name, each room has been given a personal feel, with bespoke cabinetry and hand sourced artwork throughout.

Kim comments; “This is my first opportunity to work with Octagon since founding my luxury interiors company, and to come on board at the concept stage is exciting, allowing us to create a truly aspirational home to show their potential purchasers.

“The Bishops Row townhouses are surprisingly large inside, so we are focusing on creating free flowing spaces within the show home to demonstrate how flexible the different rooms and levels can be. Using sophisticated tones and textures, from greys, bronze finishes and woven leathers to herringbone and geometric prints, the scheme is contemporary and elegant with a tailored finish, inspired by classical British style and history.”

Bishops Row offers exceptional transport links in to the West End and the City. Nearby Putney Bridge station provides access to Sloane Square and London Victoria, whilst Fulham Broadway and Parsons Green takes 17 minutes to Oxford Circus and just half an hour to Canary Wharf. Heathrow Airport is 32 minutes away from nearby Hammersmith Underground.

Fulham has a vibrant mix of shops, restaurants and bars, whilst Bishops Park and the river provide some peace and quiet. Nearby Ofsted ‘outstanding’ rated schools include Fulham Cross Girls School, London Oratory School as well as independent schools such as Fulham Prep School.

Guide Prices from £4.995m.
