Show more "This riverside scheme was completed in 1981 and has 60 one bedroom flats over five blocks, many with views across the Thames towards the Wetlands nature reserve. The main Stevenage Road block has five floors served by two lifts. The four small "scattered" blocks consist of two to three flats each with stairs only. Almost half of the flats have their own street doors, and 21 ground floor properties have their own gardens. Two flats are adapted for wheelchair use. Most of the upstairs flats have their own balconies. There is a laundrette on the 1st floor of the main block, while other communal facilities are shared with the sheltered scheme next door - Rowberry Close. This is also where the scheme managers have their office. The two schemes combined have a quiet village-type feel and appeal.
Local corner shops including a sub-post office are close by, as well as a good riverside pub which serves food. Several bus services run along nearby Fulham Palace Road." Show less
