£470,000 A Stunning Two Bedroom Top Floor Flat With Amazing ViewsRoyal Arsenal, SE18 6YR
Formed as part of the sympathetic conversion of the 'Central Office' which is now Building 22, the upper penthouse levels are part of a seamless addition to the original 1912 structure which was once the Headquarters building for the Royal Arsenal.
This period building was carefully converted around 9 years ago and was once the largest and most impressive of all the military buildings on the site with the original height of the building seamlessly increased as part of it's conversion.
It was formerly the administrative hub of the Arsenal from which most of the operations on site were run. My HQ is located in a central position on the Royal Arsenal beside Wellington Park which is an acre of open space for residents use.
What do we all want at the end of the day? To come home to a lovely property and to relax and unwind in style. A short lift ride to the top floor brings you to the property’s front door.
This top floor penthouse offers the peace and quiet of the top floor, the luxury of views of the river and historic buildings and outside space to unwind in the evenings with a glass of wine, (or lemonade!)
As well as the privacy from not having anyone live above you, the property itself is designed to feel like a gorgeous house where each family member has their own space.
As you enter the property, on the ground floor you have 2 good sized double bedrooms with the master bathroom having an ensuite. Also, on the ground floor is an extra W/C and utility room, where the washing machine is found and extra storage to put your coats and shoes ect.
Making your way to the 1st floor is why you will especially love about this penthouse. As you enter, you are blown away with large south facing windows which lead onto a private balcony viewing London and the River Thames.
The living room is a great size with plenty of space for sofas and a dining table as well as other furniture as needed. To the rear of the living room is the fitted kitchen with built in appliances to include a hob, extractor hood, oven, fridge, freezer and dishwasher and as its open plan it is a sociable space when cooking and entertaining friends.

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 CrossRail station expected to open on site soon, 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.
