Situated on a car-free island in the River Thames, the Wheatleys Eyot House presents a unique living experience in London. The timber-clad home is nestled between the river and a creek on the eight-hector island. Designed by BCDH Architects, the dwelling sits lightly on the land, suspended above grasses and wildflower meadows. Inside, warm wood floors and white-washed ceilings flooded with natural light creates light, airy living spaces while expansive glazing frames in views of the bucolic surroundings. The main house offers two bedrooms, a separate annex includes an en suite, and there's also a standalone studio space. A bluebell-framed path leads to a private creek for wild swimming and fishing, and a rope swing over a field of daisies completes the picturesque rural retreat.
