Wandsworth apartment description

Take me to the river

Less than two centuries ago, this stretch of the Thames between Wandsworth Bridge and Battersea Bridge was a riot of steamboats, sailboats and barges serving the riverside industries. Now, only the occasional motorboat agitates the serene patina, and exclusive waterfront apartments have replaced the factories. Amidst all this, you’ll discover Groveside Court, an elegant, light drenched two bedroom home with inspiring views directly over the river. With Battersea’s superb bars and gastro pubs, and a mere 30 minute journey over or under ground into central London, how could you resist?

River queen

As a successful psychologist, your host understands the therapeutic qualities of water and animals. She downsized to this riverside apartment from a larger house five years ago, and the funky canine paintings, and plethora of dog books that personalise her charming home testify to this passion for pooches. Time out is spent walking her rescue Staffies along the river to Battersea Park, wine tasting at the celebrated Bluebird in nearby Chelsea, or a weekend away in one of her Suffolk cottages.

Water cure

Doubtless it’s the rhythmic undulation, the vast reflection of sky, or even the chemical structure, but Groveside Court has an undeniably soothing quality. A liquid calm fills the spacious sitting - dining area where light from glass doors streams in over orchids and silver candlesticks. Wooden floors, and dark wood furniture create a cosy boat like feel, while framed artwork is distinct against a backdrop of bright white walls and stylish lighting. Drift away on one of two plump leather sofas enclosing a colourful Persian rug. Then, as evening approaches, slot your iPod in to the dock, take a glass of red from the large kitchen out onto the patio, and enjoy the spectacle of the sun sliding casually into the Thames. When night draws in there are two elegant bedrooms, with travel chests and sailing paintings, to choose from. Each has a double bed, a plethora of canine themed books and pictures, and a gleaming ensuite, replete with white fluffy towels and our requisite White Company toiletries.

Land lubbing

There’s no shortage of land-loving pleasures in Battersea. From chain shops to department stores to specialist food shops and florists, this is a vibrant and increasingly affluent part of the city. The nearby Battersea Arts Centre is a great place for eclectic music and theatre, and if you fancy a taste of international cuisine beforehand, the excellent Thai on the River should be your first port of call. Take a pleasant amble along the waterfront to the green open spaces of Battersea Park, and if the urge to cast your net a little wider strikes you, you’ll find Central London is around half an hour away by bus or train.

This home is in a prime riverside location, so enjoy an evening aperitif on the patio overlooking the river. However it is also next to a railway track so light sleepers may be affected. This house is home to two lovely dogs and while they won't be there during your stay, it isn't suitable for anyone with allergies....moreless
