Overlooking the Thames by Barnes Bridge in southwest London, Elm Bank Mansions is the distinctive high-rise on the Surrey side.
From leasehold to freehold
Though the flats started out as rented quarters, the bulk have since evolved into 999-year leaseholds with a share in the freehold.
You don’t need to stroll far in Barnes to hear the swish of oars or chatter of geese.
Looped by the Thames on three sides and interlaced with ancient waterways, Barnes is one of London’s picturesque waterside villages. With its nesting birds and flowing tides, its boating pubs and river races, Barnes can seem more like a coastal resort than a city suburb, but it lies just a stone’s skim from Hyde Park.
