ABOUT London's leading waterside property specialists

Property Search


Established in 2003, RiverHomes was born out of a love of property and life by the River Thames. This passion and vision continues to this day and we are proud to be the largest specialist waterside real estate agency within this niche.  We exclusively sell, let and manage waterside properties within the M25 – be they houses, flats or houseboats on, next to or near the River Thames, her tributaries and London’s canal network of the Regent’s and Grand Union. From Shepperton & Sunbury to Little Venice & Camden; from Deptford & Docklands to Barnes & Putney  – to name just a few!

Whether you’re a city-dweller looking for a breath of fresh air without leaving zone 1, or it’s time for a bit more space and greenery within reach of the bright lights of the City, you can rest assured that we  know everything there is to know about living by the river or canal.  Not just current property prices, but the best areas to see wildlife, the right time to take a boat out (and the wrong time!), the friendliest pubs, the best walk and cycle routes, the prettiest parks – as well as all the details relevant to you and your lifestyle, from schools to local transport links and more.
