Would you like to be away from the hustle and bustle of central London but still have quick and easy access whenever you like?
Then this cosy double bedroom in a luxury apartment located in the award winning development, Royal Arsenal, east of Greenwich is perfect for you. This riverside development spanning 76 acres, is a former munitions factory & storage facility with a history dating back to 1671, that has been tastefully transformed to provide a blend of converted & new build residential properties, together with a central open space, bars, restaurants and shopping facilities.
The transport links are excellent too.
Woolwich Arsenal station (DLR and mainline), which is in zone 4, is a short 5 minute stroll from the apartment. From there, you can be in central London in as little as 20-30 minutes. London City Airport is just 5 minutes away on the train, and Canary Wharf and Stratford can also be reached in less than 20 minutes.
My favorite transport is the Thames Clipper riverbus service which docks right next to the development and provides a boat service to The O2, Greenwich, Canary Wharf, Tower Bridge, Blackfriars, The Southbank (Tate Modern) and beyond. This is one of the best ways to see London in my opinion.
For shopping, the town centre, which is 5 minutes walk from the apartment, is unbeatable. It offers an array of main street shopping, including supermarkets and a vibrant street market.
As far as leisure is concerned, a short ride in a cab, train or bus will take you to nearby Blackheath, Greenwich or, the O2 - where you will be spoilt for choice in terms of food, drink and nightlife.
The room is fully equipped with a double bed, wardrobe, chest of drawers and bedside table. Clean bed linen and towels are, of course, included.
There's a slick kitchen with all the modern conveniences which you are welcome to use. A self-catering breakfast is also included in the price.
There are two large designer bathrooms in the property, one of which is available exclusively for guests.
The lounge is equipped with a widescreen tv and dvd player. You can also access the huge balcony from here which is especially useful for those warm summer months.
Hi-speed WiFi is available throughout the apartment.
There's also a 24 hour concierge service available.
I have lived in London for over 12 years and I look forward to showing you how real Londoners live.
If the dates you are interested in are unavailable, please ask as there are 2 rooms available.
I would appreciate a filled out profile and photo from you when making an inquiry. Thanks!
