A wonderful 2 bedroom garden apartment which is situated on a quiet leafy street in Putney. The property has a stunning garden which backs on to the River Thames and is a convenient location for all of south west London - the museums of South Kensington are just a short tube or bus ride away. Putney itself has a great selection of shops & restaurants, but the glamor of Chelsea's Kings Road is just a short hop in a taxi or on the scenic number 22 bus. Putney is also a favorite during the Wimbledon Championships as an ideal base.

I am very impressed with your service. Booking was easy, all my questions were answered in timely manner, I was also put in touch with the owner on arrival for further instructions on key collection, and parking.
Property itself is very conveniently located to the underground station, and the pier. During the week you can take a pleasant boat ride with a fantastic view to various places along Thames.
I highly recommended you service to my friends in the Bay Area.
I don't usually leave feedback but my stay in Putney was particularly pleasant, the flat was great, the view to river amazing, everything clean, tidy and in place. The owner was very pleasant and all was clear from the start. 5 stars basically. Hope to be able to use it again in the future!
John (owner) met us at apartment as planned and took time to show us around the apartment. For a family of four, there was plenty of room and bedrooms were of a typical size for a London apartment or hotel. The place was nice and clean with a bottle of wine in fridge for us - a nice touch. Location is great, less than 5 minutes to Putney High St or Putney Bridge tube station. We would definitely stay again when visiting London
This is a lovely apartment that once you walk in and look out through the big windows to the view of the Thames in your garden, you can not help but love the place. It is well looked after by a a great owner who is more than helpful to all your needs. We stayed with an infant and 3 y.o with the latter loving the garden. You have all you need provided in the apartment for a comfortable stay.
After living in the area for a number of years we knew all that Putney had to offer, which is all that you need within walking distance.
I definitely recommend this apartment for anyone looking to a stay in south-west London.
Putney can be dated as far back as the 11th Century when first noted as a place for ferry crossings in the Doomsday Book. Putney continued to be small village on the banks of the Thames up until the 17th Century by which time it became an exceptionally fashionable area for the elite and wealthy of London to live. Putney had a number of very famous residents and most notably was a certain William Pitt (in 1798 the then Prime Minister) who lived in Bowling-Green House on the Putney heath. Putney Heath itself has a fascinating history being well known hiding and meeting place for notorious highway man as well as the dueling ground for the elite which often ended in the death of some very powerful men.
A number of fine homes lined Putney Hill and the north face of the heath, west of the Green Man. All of which are very grand and had semi-circular carriageway entrances and exits. These included Grantham House, the residence of Lady Grantham; Ripon House, Ashburton House and Exeter House, occupied by the second Marquis of Exeter. Dover House, was the seat originally of Lord Dover, afterwards of Lord Clifden. It was owned at the turn of the 20th century by the famous US financier JP Morgan.
During the 19th Century Putney became synonymous with the famous University Boat Race between Oxford and Cambridge universities and has hosted the annual event since. Boating and rowing is very popular in the area and Putney Embankment can claim up to 20 thriving rowing clubs whom over the years have produced a plethora of Olympic champions.
By the turn of the 20th century and with the development and expansion of the the London transport network Putney became well known for its 'outsiders' who worked in the growing financial sector of London but whom lived outside in the leafy suburban surroundings.
In more modern times Putney has retained its charming leafy characteristics and is still a very popular place to live and to holiday in with many still drawn by its suburban charm, lovely restaurants, old worldly pubs and also being exceptionally easy to get to almost all parts of London but pacifically its proximity to Fulham, Chelsea and of course Wimbledon.
