Welcome to ThamesLife

Family matters: John Day with his sons and co-founders, Russell and Nigel

By the river continues to be one of London’s top areas to live with its open views, rich history, world-class architecture and robust pricing. In this edition we have some truly incredible homes; from period houses to contemporary apartments and penthouses, from historic residences and artists’ studios to floating homes and houseboats, all connected by water through our wonderful city. 2013 was a fantastic year for riverhomes. We celebrated our 10th anniversary reinforcing our standing as the premier independent agency dealing exclusively with waterside properties, our network of offices achieving record sales and lets. With our unparalleled knowledge and expertise, no other company understands as well as us how best to sell and let riverside properties. We appreciate what waterfront buyers and tenants are looking for and we look to sell not just a property but a lifestyle. We can generate the maximum interest in your waterside property or find you the perfect riverside home. The continuing unsettled worldwide financial situation has resulted in many more buyers from Europe looking to invest their money in the London property market, seeing the latter as a secure and stable long-term investment opportunity. Our proven working relationships

with international partners and relocation agents afford our clients unrivalled access to global applicants. That said a home by the river is not just an investment - it is key to a lifestyle found nowhere else. The river is centrally located not only for the world’s financial centre but for a plethora of London’s vibrant intellectual and cultural facilities making living here stimulating, varied and, put simply, great fun. Enjoy ThamesLife and if you would like to speak to us about marketing your riverside home, advise on 2014 riparian property values or are interested in any of the properties advertised, then please do not hesitate to get in touch with riverhomes - the waterside property specialists. Best wishes
