Heading upriver? William Morris Way lends a whole new meaning to the word. Tucked by the Thames Path, this eighth floor apartment boasts a view any gull would envy. Look down and you’ll spy rowers sculling back and forth, look across and the scattered lights of London blink back from each building. It might be too much to take in, were your home not so lovely. Dynamic windows let in a waterfall of light, while pastel shades make a perfect backdrop for all the boldly modern art. Head downstairs for the cafes and watering holes of Fulham, or just sit back and drink in that view.
Walking on water
A retired surgeon, your host loves nothing better than sailing his boat along to the Mediterranean. When on dry land, he’s quite content to sit and watch the river. In a home like this, who wouldn’t be?
There’s plenty to see in William Morris Way, and not merely out the window. The sitting room is all symmetry, light and space, with a wooden floor glazed with sunshine and cloud-white walls dotted with artwork. You’ve a squashy L-shaped sofa to sink into, as well as a trim table for four. But the real attraction here is the twin sofas, which sit spectacularly surrounded by windows. As the river rolls below, you can sip your morning coffee or simply lie back and watch the clouds on the march overhead.
The kitchen is sweetly contemporary, while the bedrooms are as colourful as the modern art on the walls. You’ve a twin room with a deep blue carpet and purple sofa, and a master bedroom in green and a gentle gold. The ensuite is lovingly styled and, like the bathroom, decked out with all our White Company goodies.
Take me to the river
Depending on where you turn, the Thames Path will lead you into the leafy reaches of Putney or toward the bright lights of Chelsea. Eat a sandwich in Hurlingham Park, take your credit card for a spin on the King’s Road or see the Blues in action at Stamford Bridge. Should you need to be in town, the journey from Imperial Wharf to Piccadilly Circus takes under half an hour.
