Just across the river from Fulham, the leafy streets of Putney have been renowned as one of London’s loveliest spots for more than a century. Pretty and peaceful, Putney can be characterised by cosy pubs, good restaurants and inviting coffee shops.
Situated just a short stroll from East Putney station and Putney Rail Station, The View is well-located for that commute to work with easy access into central London via the District line and National Rail, whilst also close to an abundance of green spaces for weekend pursuits.
Thanks to London’s rising café culture over the past 10 years, Putney has benefited from an array of new venues, from boutique bakery The Bakehouse to the multi-award-winning Artisan Coffee.
The Putney Farmers’ Market, kicking off every Saturday at 10am, brings together the best local producers and independent traders to offer outstanding artisanal and seasonal produce.
The area also has a lot to offer for a healthy lifestyle too, with everything you need nearby to stay in shape and maintain a healthy work/ life balance. Gyms, personal training options, yoga and martial arts to name but a few options available on your doorstep. In addition, perhaps the greatest benefit is the proximity to the river, offering so many other ways to make the most of the great outdoors.
Nestled away in Putney Village, overlooking the heath, The Telegraph is a somewhat traditional country pub with a wide-ranging gastro menu, set in extensive landscaped gardens. Ideally positioned for an afternoon beer or a Sunday roast, it provides a unique escape from the bustle of London living. Equally as popular, and just the other side of the Heath, is the Green Man pub, which dates back to the early 1700s. It too has an extensive garden, while also providing excellent beers and a summer outdoor barbecue.
A true taste of Spain, authentic tapas- offering Casa Manolo has a gourmet shop of produce including Iberian hams and Manchego cheese. It provides an in-house restaurant serving a wide range of tapas to suit all tastes, perfect for both lunch or dinner on any given day.
With five parks and the River Thames all within a five-minute drive of Messenger Court, you’ll always find the perfect spot to spend a summer afternoon. Richmond Park, one of the most impressive green spaces in all of London, spans 2,500 acres with wide open spaces, deer herds and a golf course. Visitors can even try their hand at horse riding, power kiting and off-road cycling.
As far as shopping goes, Putney is spoilt for choice when it comes to delis, wine and beer merchants. The beer boutique is one of the best in the area for craft ale and beer, both local and international. For meat lovers out there, Parson’s Nose, a traditional and knowledgeable butcher, sources some of the finest meats and seasonal produce while Valentina, an Italian Delicatessen, provides Italian style meats, cheeses, antipasti and wine. Quirky Artisan and Vine bursts with an unrivalled selection of wines, craft beers and artisanal food. Yet the jewel in the crown of all the local stores is Blabar: a new generation of Nordic design store for home and life that embodies the spirit of Scandinavian culture. There is also an on-site café serving exquisite coffee and a weekend brunch.
Classy and contemporary, authentic Sardinian restaurant Isola Del Sole has a strong neighbourhood feel to it, serving dishes such as wild boar ragu, burrata on aubergine caviar and tagliatelle with fresh tiger prawns. From fillet to sirloin and ribeye to medallion, casual restaurant Roxie Steak is just minutes away by foot and has a great menu including some of the best cuts of steak in the area, as well as offering an extensive wine list.
For after dinner cocktails, and those wanting a later night out the Toy Shop bar has not only a unique interior design but a unique take on its mixology. Open till 2am on the weekend, it also serves up European cuisine and has a heated roof terrace. Chilled and eclectic Lost and Co offers up a great selection of craft beers and cocktails to the backdrop of live bands and weekend DJs. Dutch Courage, just a stone’s throw from the property, is another local treasure with a vibrant atmosphere and impressive drinks list.
