'Riverside living is a dream for many,' says Sales Director Soren Ravaux. 'It’s a lifestyle and it’s a very emotional purchase – those who dream of living on the Thames are very unlikely to be put off by any exterior factors such as politics.'

2018 has been Waterview’s strongest year ever in terms of both new business and sales, and Soren is has already had a busy summer: “A lot of homes came onto the market during the spring. I’m sure no one needs reminding about the very long, cold winter we endured, so after the slightest increase in temperature in April sellers on the river dashed out of the blocks, ready to market their home when the river was finally at its most scenic once more.

Summer is a crucial time for Waterview; the boats are venturing along the Thames and so too are buyers. 'The tight-knit sense of community the river provides often means that buyers already live here, but are looking to upsize or downsize,' says Soren. 'People buy here because they love it; investment or speculation rarely feature in their moving decisions. At Waterview, we love the fact that we get to work alongside the same clients time and time again, though it’s always exciting when a newcomer contacts us in search of their dream riverside home.'

Staffed by waterside specialists with years of experience between them, Waterview offers a superb selection of homes all along the Thames, ranging from houseboats and islands to sleek flats and huge mansions. All of our properties have one thing in common: direct views of the Thames or its waterways.
