5 Amazing London Properties that You Can View Virtually

Lockdown comes with its challenges, and with property viewings currently a no-no, moving house is particularly tricky. Fortunately, virtual viewings make this much easier, and London estate agents are taking up the challenge, from video tours to full on 3D-virtual reality viewing experiences. Even if you’re not on the market to buy, a VR property tour of some of London’s most spectacular properties is a great way to spend a Sunday afternoon stuck at home…

1 Chelsea Waterfront
Chelsea Waterfront, which bills itself as one of London’s most desirable residential addresses – quite justifiably so – has invited viewers in to take a look around apartment 201, located on the 20th floor of the 35-floor West Tower. Located right on the waterfront of Chelsea Creek and a stone’s throw from the Thames, this development is blessed with some beautiful views of the London skyline, with one the river right in the foreground. The 2,237 sq ft apartment has four bedrooms, three of which are en suite, a living room with huge, floor-to-ceiling windows dominating three walls, and a 161 sq ft external area. Take the incredible Matterport virtual tour, which allows you to explore each room, view the flatplan, measure spaces and even view the entire flat in doll-house form. It’s currently on the market for £6,031,000.

2 Cresswell Place, Chelsea
This beautiful four-floor property makes for a great virtual tour – especially if you enjoyed a good dolls house when you were a child (check out the dolls house view on the Matterport tour and you’ll see what I mean). The top floor is the pièce de résistance, with a large south-west facing private roof terrace with hot tub, a sauna and wet bar area, plus a fourth bedroom with adjoining bathroom. On the second floor is the master suite with dressing area and two smaller en suite bedrooms, the ground floor is home to the L-shaped living, dining and kitchen area, which has been configured to let in plenty of natural light, and also features a glass participation to the garage so that you can gaze lovingly at your car. The basement features a games rooms, utility space and workout area. It’s on the market now for £6,650,000.

3 Hexagon Apartments, Covent Garden
The Hexagon Apartments enjoy all the perks of life in Covent Garden – theatre, bars, restaurants, shopping, and being in the beating heart of London’s West End (when not in lockdown, of course!). This two-bedroom, two-bathroom apartment has been beautifully interior designed by award-winning interior designers Michaelis Boyd, who have taken inspiration and colour palette from the architectural and artistic heritage of the area. The open-plan living, dining and kitchen area has floor-to-ceiling windows with a Juliette balcony allowing you to gaze over the London skyline, cocktail in hand, and the master bedroom has a smart en suite and built-in wardrobes. It’s currently on the market for £2,055,000 and the Matterport tour offers a fully immersive VR viewing capability, so pop those VR goggles on and have a nosy…

4 Oceanic House, St James’s
This striking four-bedroom duplex penthouse apartment in St James’s is quite the pad. Not only does it have an amazing amount of entertaining space, it has history, too – the building was formerly the former White Star Line headquarters, the booking office of the Titanic. It’s been redeveloped into six apartments and this two-storey penthouse, with large private roof terraces that wrap around most of the building, offering plenty of spots to step out and get some sunshine no matter the time of day. The large master suite takes up much of the lower floor, incorporating a study, a dressing area and two en suite bathrooms. The three other spacious bedrooms also have en suite or adjoining bathrooms. The lower floor accommodates the bedrooms, while the upper floor has a kitchen-diner, a separate dining room, three separately zoned living spaces and a study. It’s on the market for £16,250,000.

5 Lillie Square, Earl’s Court
Lillie Square, which boasts ‘London’s most anticipated residents’ club’, has a spectacular penthouse up for grabs, but with an £8.9 million price tag, ideally you’d like to take a look around first. Fortunately you can take a virtual tour of the property via Vimeo that shows off the property’s vast open plan living, dining and kitchen space, complete with floor-to-ceiling windows and a terrace that wraps around three sides of the apartment with plenty of room for alfresco dining. The development also lays claim to having London’s largest private residents’ club, with 18,000 sq ft of beautifully crafted spaces featuring a gym, bar, workspace, children’s area, spa and pool.
