Wandsworth apartment description

Nestling discreetly between Battersea and Albert Bridges with views across the River Thames towards Chelsea Embankment is this modern first floor lift serviced apartment with two bedrooms. The property is ideally placed adjacent to Battersea Park whilst within a short walk of the renowned Kings Road with its fantastic assortment of shops, bars and boutiques. Transport facilities are excellent with a range of buses within a minutes walk providing access to various parts of London and its vast range of tourist attractions as well as a multitude of tube/train stations. (The two nearest tube stations are South Kensington or Sloane Square which take around 10 minutes on a choice of double decker buses) Alternatively for those looking to avoid the hustle and bustle of the underground why not take the boat instead. The Thames Clippers (TFL) provide a river bus service that departs from Cadogan Pier by Albert Bridge and offers you the opportunity to take in some truly fabulous sights along the way including the London Eye, Big Ben and the Houses of Parliament.

The kitchen and bathroom have been updated and there is a riverside terrace that seats six people.


Shopping.

Within a minutes walk of the property is the Co-Operative supermarket that caters for day to day shopping needs whilst a 5 minute ride on the bus drops you on the Kings Road where there is a Waitrose, Marks & Spencer and John Lewis.

Pubs and Restaurants.

There are an assortment of popular pubs and restaurants all within nearby walking distance including the Prince Albert on Albert Bridge Road by the gates to Battersea Park and is renowned for its excellent food. There is also the Westbridge as well as Bunga Bunga where many a celebrity has often spent the evening.

Just across the bridge is the Cheyne Walk Brasserie. Once a Victorian pub, 50 Cheyne Walk has metamorphosed into a chic, modern definition of a brasserie and salon. At the centre of the Belle Epoque dining room is an open grill where much of the Provencal inspired menu is prepared, including specialties such as rack of Pyrenean lamb and grilled sea bream.

The Salon upstairs is exceptional - with a stunning river view and sumptuous chaises longues to relax in whilst lingering over a cocktail or glass of fine wine. The Salon is also a unique venue for special events and parties.

Just a stroll across Albert Bridge is 'The Phene'. Set in the heart of residential Chelsea, a short walk from the famous Kings Road, The Phene is a clubhouse-style venue, housing a traditional saloon bar, chalet-style delicatessen, a conservatory restaurant and cosy upstairs Lounge.

The Phene restaurant offers an exclusively seasonal menu and light and delectable deli bites, whilst the Phene bar has a carefully considered wine list, impressive selection of beers and ciders and a creative array of cocktails.

The Phene’s piece de resistance is the stunning Phene Garden. Complete with comfortable sofas and quirky hanging basket chairs, enjoy lunch, dinner and drinks in this beautiful outdoor retreat, thoroughly warmed and protected by state-of-the-art infrared heated parasols and real outdoor fireplaces.
