Country Life takes a look at the lateral central London homes created with families in mind

Our client Chelsea Waterfront features in the latest issue of Country Life as part of a look at the new type of family home that is sweeping central London

In recent years, the areas in and around central London have seen a rise in a new kind of lateral home. These multi-storey apartments generally comprise three to five bedrooms, however, they stand in stark contrast to similar properties on the London market. Rather than cater to exclusively commuters and city workers, these properties have been designed with families at the fore. And, as more of these new lateral developments pop up in the capital, they are slowly but surely supplanting traditional ideas surrounding family homes.

This is especially true in the case of our client Chelsea Waterfront. The scheme’s latest phase, Tower West, has been specifically designed to maximise space for family living, spreading its 76 three-to-five-bedroom apartments and penthouses across 37 storeys. Upon completion, residents will not only have their own concierge, on-site gym and exclusive pool but will also benefit from a children’s playground.

Tower West forms a comparatively small part of Chelsea Waterfront’s wider ambitions for the Lots Road Power Station and its eight-acre site on the River Thames’ north bank. Alongside residential properties, the riverside neighbourhood will boast beautifully landscaped water gardens, restaurants, shops, and cafes.
