£420,000- Light and Airy Flat with Park Views in My HQ BuildingRoyal Arsenal, SE18 6YN
Light and Airy with Park Views
It’s always nice when a property feels spacious with room to live and breathe. This pretty flat has high ceilings in the living room and looks directly onto the green park and gorgeous old building opposite. There is the opportunity to make a real divide between the living area and the dining area. The dining area leads onto a smart modern kitchen which is of a much better quality than the standard kitchens in this building.
As well as having many full height storage cupboards, an attractive black marble style work surface, attractive fittings and flooring it is well provisioned with built in appliances. So, it’s a really practical area.
Throughout the living room and the rest of the property runs a quality, brown wooden flooring. The first floor of this apartment has 2 x useful storage cupboards, under stairs storage and a smart modern bathroom, fully tiled with double shower.
Both of the bedrooms are upstairs. Both are genuine doubles. The second bedroom has a great recessed area which would be perfect for a built in wardrobe. The master bedroom faces towards the park and has the advantage of the ensuite bathroom. Again this is modern in contemporary colours, fully tiled with shower over bath.
As the property is on 2 floors it feels almost like a house and something about makes it into a really cosy home, so much nicer than some modern properties which can feel little more than a square box.

The Royal Arsenal Riverside maybe 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 city 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 02 accessible in 8 minutes by the Thames Clipper and London Bridge can be reached in 23 minutes by South East 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 Cross Rail station opening on site in the coming years, slashing journey times by as much as 50%.

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 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.
