Chiswick Staithe is an award-winning development of townhouses on the Thames. It has its own private river frontage and quay, with a winch for light boats. An unusual feature for a modern development is the substantial car-free green area and garden at its heart, which gives the atmosphere of a ‘cathedral close’.

The development was designed in 1963 by a local architect, Edward Armitage, and contains a variety of house layouts and some interesting architectural features.

The ‘Staithe’ lies just upstream of Chiswick Bridge, off Hartington Road in the quiet and leafy Grove Park area of Chiswick, with its sports grounds, a par 3 Golf Course, the Dukes Meadows and the finish line for the annual Oxford and Cambridge Boat Race. Several well-known riverside hostelries are within easy walking distance. Good quality schools and other amenities are close by, and there are excellent rail connections (25 mins to Waterloo - every 15 mins) from Chiswick Station in Grove Park, as well as frequent buses to the tube station at Turnham Green. Kew Gardens Tube and Mortlake Main line station are also within easy reach. Heathrow Airport and the M25 are 15 minutes away. The lively shops and restaurants of Chiswick High Road are less than 5 minutes away, and 20 minutes by car sees you at Hyde Park Corner.

The substantial river wall, running the length of the river frontage, in conjunction with the Thames Barrier, assures that the Staithe is never flooded.

Chiswick Staithe is a relaxed place to live, offering peace and privacy for all residents. It is also a safe environment, monitored by a video security system, where children can play without fear of strangers. Parties are sometimes held for residents and their friends on the riverbank.

Every freeholder is a shareholder in Chiswick Staithe Ltd., which owns and manages the common parts. A Board of Directors—residents rotating on a voluntary basis—runs the Company and instructs the Managing Agents in day-to-day business.
