Property: one-bedroom flat
Agent: Foxtons (020 8973 2700)
A stroll away from the Twickenham stretch of the Thames, in a quiet leafy street near the shops and riverside restaurants, is this fabulous, top-floor flat.
The owner, an interior designer, has used clever tricks to create a serene, bright living space.
White walls and floors offer a blank canvas and reflect light in the reception room and open-plan kitchen, where large bay windows and a glass door open on to a private balcony.
A spot-lit ceiling, fitted wardrobes and wood floor continue the seamless feel in the bedroom, next to a chic bathroom tiled in pale-grey stone. Waterloo is less than 30 minutes away from Twickenham station.
