Modern 9th floor, riverside apartment with great views.
This is a special apartment, on the corner of the 9th floor, with a panoramic view over the Thames, Tate Gallery, Palace of Westminster (House of Commons and House of Lords) and the London Eye. The property enjoys great transportation links on its doorstep, being adjacent to London’s first integrated transport centre and giving immediate access to the underground (Vauxhall tube station – Victoria line), buses, rail network and river transport. In addition there’s a “Boris Bike” hire station and fully secure basement parking. London’s West End is within walking distance.
The St George Wharf complex is one of London’s premier developments located right on the river and enjoying several on-site bars and restaurants, convenience stores, medical centre and health and fitness centre.
The apartment sleeps 4 in two bedrooms with two bathrooms, one of which is en-suite. Wireless internet access is provided. Basement parking @ £35/day is available.
The spacious living area (22ft11 x 14ft4, 6.7m x 4.4m) is at the far end of a hallway and boasts large windows that look out across the city. French windows open out onto a balcony which provides a table and two chairs – a perfect spot for watching the world pass by below!
The modern room is bright and airy and has a comfortable feel. There are two large leather sofas at the far end where you can relax and watch a DVD or one of the many digital channels on the flat-screen TV. This area also provides the best river views – so you can sit back from the comfort of the sofa and soak up the river and city landscape.
The eclectic mix of furniture and collection of interesting ornaments/artwork creates a comfortable atmosphere with plenty of character. There is a stereo where you can listen to your own CDs, work area with a desk and chair, dining area with a dining table and four chairs and a bar area with several stools.

The St. George Wharf complex is right beside Vauxhall Bridge, walk across it and you are then in Pimlico, with Westminster on your right – The Palace of Westminster (Houses of Parliament) are a 10 minute walk.
Between the bridge and Victoria, in the heart of Pimlico, there is a good selection of restaurants and bars. And if you want to go further afield you are well placed for the tube or to grab a passing taxi.
