Fly into Heathrow and you see why people like to live in the leafy outer reaches of south-west London — the Thames, the commons and the great green tract of Richmond Park. Despite traffic jams and aircraft noise, many find it ideal.

Two riverfront penthouses that capture this panorama have been unveiled at Hyperion Tower, Kew Bridge West. Both duplexes have 1,500sq ft of inside space and full-height glass walls. One has a wraparound terrace on all four sides and the other has a spectacular glazed atrium with a 775sq ft roof terrace. From £2.15 million.

The wider scheme has 249 flats in seven riverside buildings, landscaped courtyards and lawns, with the Royal Botanic Gardens on the opposite bank of the Thames. St James, the developer, has included an orangery, sculptural planting and water jets. Apartments cost from £595,000. Call 020 8662 6000.
