What do you love most about your home?
I love the modern but cosy feel to the flat - being a conversion amidst an upscale Georgian street gives the flat a lot of character. I also love how big the windows are - they make the rooms feel light and airy plus you have the bonus of overlooking picturesque gardens all whilst maintaining privacy as no-one has a line of sight to see back in.
Having the rooftop has made a huge difference to working from home as it gave me an alternative to working in the bedroom. I often worked on the rooftop in the sun - it makes the flat feel so much more spacious having an outdoor area. Hosting people for food and drinks up there has been great fun. Because the area is so quiet, its extremely relaxing being on the roof, reading or listening to music whilst watching the sun go down over the chimneys. The neighbours in the building are also very friendly
What do you love about the area?
I love going for walks in Greenwich park and watching the sunset over the London skyline - also The Point is a "secret spot" just a short walk away which has the best views of London. Richard the 1st pub at the top of the road is great for food and the pub quiz whilst the boutique butchers, bakers, fishmongers, and florist at the end of the street give the area an elegant feel. The town center which hosts the Cutty Sark, Royal Navy College, and food market is also a Sunday favourite. Being able to get to work in Canary Wharf in 20 minutes as well as being only 2 stops from London Bridge has made living here extremely convenient.
Accommodation comprises entrance hall leading into the bright reception room with wide shuttered sash window, feature gas fireplace and ample space for relaxing. A doorway leads through to the separate kitchen with range of matching wall and base units with work surfaces and tiled splash-back. Incorporated is an inset sink unit, gas hob with overhead extractor and electric oven, and further space for appliances. There is a spacious double bedroom, again with shuttered sash window and plenty of space for free-standing furniture. The stylish bathroom comprises a modern suite and elegant tiling.
The property is enviably located in a prime position, just a short walk from Greenwich station providing excellent overground and DLR connections into Central London, Canary Wharf and the City. Greenwich itself provides an array of shops, fashionable bars, cafes and restaurants, as well as a selection of regular markets, the iconic site of the Cutty Sark, beautiful Greenwich Park and the Royal Observatory.
