GUIDE TO HOUSES IN TOWER BRIDGE

TOWER BRIDGE OVERVIEW

Tower Bridge and Southbank offers easy travel around London with fantastic restaurants and markets. It is also home to many of the most famous theatres, museums and art galleries in London. Residents are drawn to the riverside living and the excellent lifestyle the area offers. Cobbled streets and historic pubs add character that contrasts but complements the brand new buildings such as the imposing Shard. Attractions such as the Tate Modern, the National Theatre and Borough Market pull in tourists, creating a buzz especially on the weekends. The area is home to a diverse population with a large percentage being city workers taking advantage of the easy commute. The range of properties available also varies from new build apartments overlooking the river to warehouse conversions.  

HOUSES IN TOWER BRIDGE 

Whether you are looking for a modern riverside penthouse, converted warehouse or traditional Georgian, Victoria and Edwardian building then Tower Bridge and Southbank has it all. Since the last warehouse closed in the early 70’s a regeneration programme took place developing them into attractive riverside apartments or commercial and retail units. Some of the more popular developments include; Butlers Wharf, Tea Trade Wharf and Spice Quay Heights. The area is still increasing in popularity with demand being reflected in new builds such as One Tower Bridge.

MY TOWER BRIDGE 

The market in Tower Bridge remains buoyant with properties selling within a sensible time frame. The area still offers relatively good value compared to other central London postcodes and being so conveniently located to the City and Canary Wharf it works well as a second home or as a primary residence.  

We had one of our busiest periods ever with a lot of properties coming onto the market but also with high demand meaning there is a fast turnover. We are expecting this to continue throughout the summer until at least October.
