The Fulham neighbourhood of Sands End has been referred to as a triumph of development. This once cut-off corner of the capital has grown into a fashionable residential quarter a world away from the grim industrial land it once was. The construction of Chelsea Harbour inspired residential developers to take a fresh look at the location and recognise its potential. Over time, developers have transformed the area into a collection of highly coveted flats and houses and one of Fulham’s most highly sought after addresses.
Fulham has a riverside path to Chelsea Harbour via a similar high end residential development, Chelsea Creek. Sands End boasts offices, bars, restaurants, hotels and small businesses, and the New Kings Road offers a wide range of boutiques and galleries. The continuous riverside developments have begun to attract a new kind of renter. Professionals and people looking to downsize are enticed by the lifestyle benefits offered by modern development such as parking, security and close proximity to an array of amenities.
Hammersmith neighbours Fulham and is also attracting large numbers of renters and investors. Boasting the Lyric Theatre, Hammersmith Apollo, the iconic River Cafe and an arts and media centre that is currently being redeveloped as part of a major housing scheme called Queen’s Wharf it is no surprise that Londoners regularly cross the length of the city to experience everything the district has to offer. Furthermore, these popular venues have been supported over the years by four convenient transport links that run across the Hammersmith & City, Circle, Piccadilly and District lines.
Hammersmith offers listed pubs with historical architecture, tennis and basketball courts, paddling pools, playgrounds and popular riverside park Furnivall Gardens. Also to be found is the Rik Mayall memorial bench installed outside Hammersmith Broadway as tribute to the late comedian. There are several housing development plans in the pipeline including Berkeley Group’s development of Sovereign Court and Fulham Reach along with the construction of Parkside Place overlooking Ravenscourt Park. The relatively reasonable property prices have attracted buyers, investors and portfolio holders from Notting Hill, Kensington and France.
