Property of the Day: Edge Apartments, Twickenham

As the Six Nations kick off this weekend, there’s never been a better time to explore all that Twickenham’s properties have to offer. And this architect designed and award-winning apartment in Strawberry Hill certainly does not disappoint

Twickenham, home to the famous stadium, isn’t just a great spot to settle for Rugby fans, it’s a swift 25-minute train ride to London Waterloo, making it a good spot for commuters. Plus it’s situated in the London Borough of Richmond, ranked as the best place to live in London.

Part of the Edge Apartments, this raised ground floor flat was built by acclaimed local architects Quad, which won an award for the design of the building.

The flat itself has two bedrooms and two bathrooms across 1,076 sq ft of space, as well as two balconies – one off of the reception room and another from the dining room. There is also parking underneath the property for residents to use.

Fitted with wood paneling throughout, the apartment lends itself to a chic mid century modern interior while the building design looks straight out of Miami with its palm tree laden entrance.

But the most iconic part of the flat has to be the floor-to-ceiling glass windows that look out towards the communal gardens and a private balcony. Letting in oodles of light into the flat, it’s a perfect property to make the most of the sun even on chilly winter days.

The green and leafy communal gardens are well maintained and extend all the way to the bank of the river Thames

The green and leafy communal gardens are well maintained and extend all the way to the bank of the river Thames. This is a dream spot for those who love the water or own a small boat as well as those wanting to make the most of the natural green spaces that south west London has to offer.

The apartments are situated in Strawberry Hill, which is a sought after location thanks to the acres of green space in nearby Bushy Park, being close to the shops and restaurants of Teddington as well as easy connections into Waterloo from Strawberry Hill train station.
