At MyLondonHome, we invest heavily in marketing, as we want to ensure we reach the largest audience of potential clients possible. Back in 2007, we decided to venture into microsites; we knew that many clients, especially those from overseas, often didn’t know where to go when they were looking to sell or let their property in Central London. Each microsite is dedicated to a major development, within which we sell and let a significant number of properties. As we take you on a tour of our microsites, you will see the magical power they have to engage our clients and add value to our service.
Designed by a collection of architecture firms, including Twigg Brown and Allies and Morrison, Grosvenor Waterside is an award winning building that sits on the north side of Chelsea Bridge, on the River Thames. Awarded ‘Best Architecture’ in the 2009 Daily Mail UK Residential Property Awards, its design is a unique fusion of art, history and urban architecture. Perfectly located, this formerly derelict industrial site has been transformed into a stunning dockside urban quarter. Its generous balconies, many with riverside views, take advantage of the picturesque surroundings, and the fascinating façade draws fresh air and light into the living space.
Within the serene setting you will find a stunning water feature, adding tranquillity to the communal areas. There are 299 apartments within the two blocks of the development; the unusual but charming glazing helps to create subtle lighting in the bedrooms and bathrooms. Being only a short walk from Sloane Square and all that Chelsea has to offer, this really is a haven in the heart of the city.
Opened in 1825, the Grosvenor Canal stretched from the Thames to where Victoria Station stands today, and was a water supply channel for the Chelsea Waterworks Company. As the first railways began to be built around Victoria Station the canal was progressively shortened, and much of it disappeared, although it remained in use until 1995 by refuse barges using the waterways to transport waste from the city, making it the last commercially operated canal in London.
In 2000, planning permission was granted to redevelop the disused Grosvenor Canal into the award winning Grosvenor Waterside development. The refurbishment of the inner dock was completed to honour its heritage and includes mooring pontoons; in addition, over the lock an operational swing bridge can be found.
Your creative and artistic needs are certainly catered for, as there are numerous places that those who love drama and art can visit. In Sloane Square, you will find the Royal Court, which is known for its support of new works by innovative writers. The iconic National Theatre sits proudly on the Southbank, and close by, overlooking the River Thames, lies the Tate Britain. With renowned restaurants, stylish bars and relaxing green spaces all within easy walking distance, there really isn’t a more ideal location in Central London.
