The Oxford v Cambridge Boat Race last weekend was a global advertisement for a wave of fancy riverside developments springing up between Putney and Mortlake in south-west London.

Few places offer a better vantage point from which to view the annual sporting event than Queen’s Wharf, by Hammersmith Bridge, which occupies a commanding position on the Surrey bend, the race’s first gruelling milestone. Penthouses with huge roof terraces featuring an outdoor kitchen, Jacuzzi and multiple sun decks reached by a glass-and-stone staircase have been unveiled for those who want to book their seat for next year’s race.

The scheme of 165 flats also has podium gardens reaching to the water’s edge and will incorporate new premises for Riverside Studios, used for numerous BBC productions including Doctor Who, together with a cinema, café and restaurant. A new promenade has been created, linking the Thames Path to Hammersmith Bridge. Prices start at £715,000 for a one-bedroom flat, with penthouses from £4.2 million. Call 020 7182 2477. 

Estate agent Marsh & Parsons reports there is a 50 per cent premium for homes with the best Boat Race views.
