Fan of the annual Boat Race? Imagine being within walking distance next year…

On Easter Sunday, thousands of people gathered on the banks of the River Thames, and many thousands more gathered around their TV sets, to watch the narrow victory for Cambridge in the annual Oxford vs Cambridge Boat Race.

Each year the historical event shines a light on the areas surrounding the Boat Race route and this year was no exception. If you want to get caught up in the excitement of the starting gun, or join in the wild celebrations at the finish line for next year’s race, than look no further than these two perfectly-poised properties.

Oakhill Park, in Putney, is an exclusive gated development of mansion-style apartments and penthouses, situated on a leafy residential road. It’s thoughtfully designed to blend in with the Victorian and Edwardian houses which line the streets. As the starting point of the Boat Race, Putney is a popular area for rowers and is home to a handful of rowing clubs. You can even walk to the river in just 10 minutes, where you can commute into the city by boat. Prices start from £850,000 for a two-bedroom apartment. Call Savills on 020 3430 6920 or visit
