I was immediately struck by the light and airy feel of the flat. With a south-facing aspect the light streams in through the triple sash windows in the living room with views of the playing fields opposite. It's a very well proportioned flat, the living room is so spacious and comfortably holds a dining table for 6-8 people as well as a large L shaped sofa making it perfect for entertaining. The bedroom has plenty of storage with built in wardrobes and has a tranquil feel as it looks out over the communal garden. To not be overlooked from the front or back of the property gives a real sense of privacy. Being on the top floor and the only entrance on this level made me feel very safe and secure. It is a beautiful building and the other owners are genuinely lovely people, they are by far the nicest neighbours I've had! Finally, Hervey Road is a very quiet and wide tree lined road just off Shooters Hill Road and is part of a conversation area. The road has a number of large detached family homes and there are no high rise developments which is a rarity in London these days.

The best thing about living in this part of London has to be the abundance of green space from the playing fields across the road to nearby Greenwich park and the open space of Blackheath a short stroll away. There's even an Olympic sized outdoor heated swimming pool a few mins walk away so no matter if you are an avid runner, keen cyclist or even a tri-athlete you'll be able to enjoy these pursuits on your doorstep. Don't worry though if leisurely strolls is more your thing then you won't be disappointed either.
I will never tire of watching the seasons change as I stroll through Greenwich Park, stop to take in a wonderful view of the city before a mooch around the market and indulge in some churros. I'm no history buff but you can't help but be impressed by all the history in Greenwich from the Royal Observatory, Royal Naval College & it's Painted Halls to the Maritime Museum & Cutty Sark. Millions come from all over the world to visit these attractions each year but living so close you can explore each one at your leisure. I'd recommend going on a rainy afternoon in winter when you can while away hours exploring and feel like you have the place to yourself!
Blackheath is one of only a handful of villages in London and has some wonderful independent shops, bars & restaurants. Brunch at boulangerie Jade followed by a platter of cheese and wine at Le Bar a Vin a few doors away is the perfect way to spend a Saturday in my book and on a Sunday there is the farmers market which has lovely fresh produce and exceptional baked goods :-)
