Live The Big Outdoors On The Thames 

During the summer months, like cars with sun roofs, homes with outdoor space come into their own. City dwellers crave to have a secluded open air corner, be it on a balcony, roof terrace or if they are very lucky, a courtyard garden. At Octagon’s Bishops Row on the Fulham banks of the Thames, the supersized townhouses have all three.

All nine townhouses have front and rear courtyard gardens at ground level, with generous balconies leading off the first floor drawing room and top floor master suite. In addition, on the lower ground floor accessed from the family media rooms, there are innovative covered courtyards. The robust glass ceilings come into their own, providing a year round protection from the elements, and a novel walk-over, as above they make an original feature in the open to the skies courtyard gardens.

Going one stage further, two of the townhouses boast a fourth option for taking the rays –both with large rooftop terraces and unparalleled view of the River Thames.

These deceptively spacious homes, ranging from 4,375 - 6,150 sq ft, come with 4/5 bedrooms and 4 reception rooms, and enviable access to the river footpath running between Putney and Hammersmith bridges.

Accommodation includes the fabled Octagon super room with kitchen/breakfast/family zones. Contemporary linear units in a satin lacquer finish, quartz stone worktops and top-of-the-range integrated Miele appliances with marble effect panelling and bespoke bronze lighting create a clean, sophisticated finish in this light-filled open plan space.

Drawing rooms have modern limestone fireplaces, herringbone timber flooring bordering high grade fitted carpets and wide bifold doors opening onto the balconies. Linked to the formal dining rooms which are just across the hallway, and clearly visible through full size glass doors , where full height sash windows maximise natural daylight.

The sizeable master suites span the entire top level of each home, and come with large walk through dressing rooms, marble ensuite bathrooms and slide back glass doors leading onto the private balconies.

Additional accommodation in each house includes a gym, wine room and cinema room on the lower ground floors.

Octagon commissioned Kim Harvey to create an aspirational interior scheme for the show house. In addition to the high quality finishes and specifications synonymous with the Octagon name, Kim has given each room a personal signature, using original artworks,   contemporary and 20th century vintage furniture.

Bishops Row offers exceptional transport links in to the West End and the City. Nearby Putney Bridge station provides access to Sloane Square and London Victoria, whilst Fulham Broadway and Parsons Green takes 17 minutes to Oxford Circus and just half an hour to Canary Wharf. Heathrow Airport is 32 minutes away from nearby Hammersmith Underground.

Fulham has a vibrant mix of shops, restaurants and bars, with the legendry River Café just a short stroll along the river path, whilst the grounds of Bishops Park provide a peaceful alternative for walking and relaxing.   Nearby Ofsted ‘outstanding’ rated schools include Fulham Cross Girls School and the London Oratory School as well as independent schools Fulham Preparatory, Latymer Upper and Godolphin and Latymer.

Prices from £3.75m
