Property and Development Description
Godwin House is part of the beautiful Royal Herbert Pavilions development. A collection of wonderfully restored old buildings set in landscaped grounds almost equidistant from Charlton Park, Eltham Common and Oxleas Meadows.
Whilst talking about your leisure time we’d like to point out that ownership of this great 1 bed comes with access to the residents’ Swimming pool, Gym, Sauna, Chill out Bar and Tennis Courts.
The flat is a really nice size at 508 sq ft. As the living room and bedroom face in opposite direction the property has both afternoon and morning sun. The bedroom is large enough to fit a triple wardrobe and a king sized bed and still have plenty of room to move around.
The living room is separate to the kitchen but the current owner has installed a kitchen bar and so the kitchen opens up to the living room via the “bar area” making it very convenient to interact with guests whilst in the kitchen or to take food/drink from one to the other.
It’s a white fitted kitchen with lots of cupboards and work surfaces, so if you are someone who likes to cook there is ample space to indulge your culinary talents
Finally there is a modern tiled bathroom with whirlpool bath.
If you are someone who likes the top of the range in kitchens or bathrooms, then there is scope in the price to upgrade these rooms and put your own stamp on them as well as creating value at the same time.
The property comes with parking

Regeneration of Woolwich
A new Civic Centre on Wellington Street provides a new library, post office and cafe/bar. Behind the centre is a Tesco superstore has recently opened alongside a town centre car park and 1000 new homes. The Tesco store is an eco-store powered by solar panels and wind turbines, and has a farmers' market selling local produce, and two children's playgrounds.
At the western end of Powis Street, there is a designated development are known as the Woolwich Triangle - construction will soon commence for a new shopping centre with a major retailer taking centre stage. The Triangle development will include a leisure space, cafes and restaurants. The whole area covers an area of 300,000sqft and will revitalise the whole western end of the Town Centre as a car-free zone. Woolwich gets its own 'West End'. In fact British Land recently spent £100M acquiring land and buildings in Woolwich.
The High Street will also benefit from the restoration of the existing Grade II listed buildings to give extra character and focus. The old Co-op building has now been refurbished with more buildings to be done. Once refurbished these historic buildings will accommodate new retail brands and major high street names, the whole area will become more vibrant during the day and in to the evening with new coffee bars and restaurants.
£6.6million was recently spent on the redesign of General Gordon Square and Beresford Square near to the Woolwich Arsenal DLR and Train stations. This is now complete, and features include new landscape planting, seating areas, a large digital media display for sporting and public events and a new water feature.
