West London properties close to the Boat Race
Thu 22 Mar 2018
This weekend marks the return of the annual Cancer Research UK Oxford versus Cambridge Boat Race (yes, we can’t believe it’s almost the end of March either). The route means racers fly past some of the best spots on the Thames, starting at Putney Bridge and finishing at Chiswick Bridge. So to celebrate this beautiful stretch of the river, we’ve selected the best properties for sale and to let, located close to the water’s edge.
For Sale: Situated close to Barnes Bridge near the final bend of the race, this exceptional six-bedroom detached house offers almost 4,000 sqft of living space. Formerly two semi-detached properties, this double-fronted, detached family home boasts uninterrupted views of the river (and race).
To Let: Conveniently located between Fulham Palace Road and the Thames Path, this charming two-bedroom maisonette benefits from over 900 sqft of living space, as well as a private patio. Tenants can take a short stroll to the nearby riverside Crabtree pub and enjoy the race from their picturesque beer garden.
