Looking over Fulham, across the famous River Thames, Putney is an affluent suburb in leafy south west London. Characterised by handsome architecture, a thriving shopping centre along the High St and The Putney Exchange.
Putney has much to offer residents, with grand homes, refurbished flats and green open spaces, it still retains a small town feel and charm matched by few in the city. Putney and its surrounding areas attract a diverse demographic, from students, young professionals, and families.
Its riverside setting plays host to over 20 rowing clubs, many of which have trained Olympic champions, there are also plenty of riverside walks and bars from which you can simply spectate. On the lanes behind the high street, you'll find pretty terraces interspersed with new-builds, low-rise apartment blocks, and maritime architecture. There are some larger four- and five-bedroom homes in the area available yet these are snapped up rather sharpish, they are located on Felsham Road, Hotham Road, Quill Lane, Clarenden Drive and their offshoots.
The Coat and Badge Pub - decor remains true to its rowing heritage with a river mural, set of oars, and an impressive list of winners of the Coat and Badge Sculling Race - a favourite on Boat Race Day. Thai Square, with its panoramic views over the River Thames, is situated in the award winning building of Putney Bridge with an interior designed to create a contemporary Thai theme.
With awards from the Royal Institute of Architecture, the American Institute of Architecture and Wandsworth Corporation, this is one of the most uniquely styled buildings in London. The exterior of this building resembles a ship with metal beams and tall glazed windows allow diners stunning views across the river.
