£445,000 - A Good Sized Two Bedroom Two Bathroom Flat With Lagoon Views & ParkingRoyal Arsenal, SE18 6PL
Sunny, Practical and Easy to live in 2 Bed
The Reflections Building is one we at LSP have always liked. Well-built with flats shaped for the way we live our lives, the building is right next to the river in a quiet part of the development.
This is a prime example of a 2 bed 2 bath flat. Both bedrooms are doubles and look west over the lagoon, so sunlight streams in all afternoon. The master (a large room for a modern property) has a fully tiled, modern en-suite bathroom with bath over shower.
There is a second shower room which has been recently refurbished by the owners in a soft grey palate. Very “on trend”. Little extra touches have been added, such as shelves built into the tiles and additional soft lighting.
The living room also looks west through floor to ceiling windows. They give out directly to a private balcony which overlooks the lagoon in the centre of the building. The kitchen is open plan. Modern flats sometimes suffer from all the kitchen being crammed against one wall. Here it forms 3 sides of a rectangle so there genuinely is lots of cupboard and work surfaces with a series of built in appliances giving a smooth contemporary feel to the kitchen area.
The property has one over ground parking spot.

The Royal Arsenal Riverside may be a little-known riverside development to some, to others it is 'home'. Possibly drawn to live here for its unique mix of Listed Buildings and newly built townhouses or flats with modern contemporary interiors or simply due to the easy access to all the capital has to offer.
For the commuters amongst you the Royal Arsenal puts you minutes away from the enviable commuter links of the area, with Canary Wharf 19 minutes away on the DLR, The O2 accessible in 8 minutes by the Thames Clipper and London Bridge can be reached in 23 minutes by South Eastern and Thameslink trains. All this means that you are spoilt for choice when it comes to access to culture, cuisine and shopping! This will be further enhanced with a Crossrail station opening on site in 2021 slashing journey times by as much as 50%.
Property Hot Spot
The Royal Arsenal is one of the most exciting redevelopment and rejuvenation projects in London. It was a former military barracks, parade ground and munitions storage and factory site dating from 1761 and is built on wide open spaces that have been beautifully landscaped on the banks of the Thames. It already has an established village community with significant commercial/social infrastructure that is set to grow and improve beyond recognition over the next few years once Crossrail is up and running.
This is your chance to be part of the next London property hot spot at entry-level prices, allowing you to benefit from great value for money and exciting potential capital gains.

London City Airport is only two stops away by DLR - its close enough for convenience but Royal Arsenal does not have any overhead flights.
Future plans for the Royal Arsenal

Regeneration of Woolwich
A new Civic Centre on Wellington Street provides a new library, post office and cafe/bar. Behind the centre a brand-new 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 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.
