Full description

An immaculate and recently refurbished fourth floor, dual aspect, south-east facing, two bedroom, two bathroom peaceful riverside apartment in the partially-gated Galleons Point development in London's Royal Docks, E16. It is offered chain free with a share of freehold, a secure allocated underground parking space, an unallocated surface level parking space, and eligibility for a Royal Docks East parking permit.

Each room gives uninterrupted views of and across the River Thames to the Royal Borough of Greenwich and the private residents' gardens and grounds while a large balcony accessed by floor-to-ceiling patio doors from the lounge provides space for outside dining and quiet relaxation.

The apartment was comprehensively refurbished in 2016 with both bathrooms fully updated, the installation of a new energy efficient hot water system and wood flooring in the public rooms, new carpets in the bedrooms, and neutral decoration in all other rooms. It is wired for high-speed cable broadband services from both Hyperoptic and Virgin Media.

A lift and stairs serve all floors and the basement car park and bike park of Sheerness Mews. The building itself and the residents' gardens and grounds were fully refurbished in 2015. The estate office at Galleons Point offers a concierge, parcel delivery, and key holding service. There are two convenience stores and a beauty salon onsite.

Transport links
Galleons Point is located in zone 3 and has excellent transport links including short walks to the DLR at both King George V and Gallions Reach stations, direct connections to the Jubilee line at Canning Town, direct connections to the soon-to-open Elizabeth Line/Crossrail at both Woolwich Arsenal and Custom House, as well as to national rail services at Woolwich Arsenal. With a journey time of just 15 minutes to Canary Wharf and 22 minutes to The City it's an ideal location for either of London's financial centres. London City Airport is just one DLR stop from the development. Galleons Point is also served by two nearby 24 hour bus routes and offers easy access by road to the A406, A13, A12, M11, and M25.

Local attractions
The riverside paths and gardens of Galleons Point form part of the London Jubilee Greenway walking trail and connect to the adjacent Royal Victoria Gardens which offer bowling, tennis and basketball courts. There are two large retail parks located within a 1.5 miles of Galleons Point, as well as Barrier Park, and the sport, leisure, bar and restaurants of the Royal Docks themselves, including at the ExCel centre. The nearby University of East London has an excellent gym which local residents can join. The Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, Westfield Stratford City shopping centre, and Greenwich Park can all be reached within 20 minutes by public transport. With construction work underway nearby at the major new Silvertown London development, the Asian Business Port, and at Royal Wharf the apartment will soon be even closer to a host of wonderful dockside leisure and shopping facilities.

What the vendor says - "The first thing every visitor to the flat comments on is the view, they love it. No matter which window you look out you get an unobstructed view across the Thames. The dual aspect living room with its quadruple patio doors which run floor to ceiling and lead to the large balcony is quite simply a lovely space to relax. Recently I've created a little urban garden on the balcony which adds an extra bit of calm to city living and as the flat is set back from the road leading into the Mews the only sounds you can hear are from from the passing boats as they sail past. Galleons Point is a very child-friendly place with lots of car-free space. The flat is lovely and bright and sunny and warm, even on the dullest of days, owing to the direction it faces. As the flat was recently refurbished the flat in neutral style you could move in and easily put your own stamp on it. The refurbished gardens, ground, and communal areas of the development also make for a pleasant living environment. Galleons Point is located in the Royal Docks, an area undergoing a significant amount of redevelopment with more shopping, leisure, and quality social and outdoor spaces planned. Be it for ease of access to Canary Wharf, The City, London City Airport, the under-construction Asian Business Port, or the University of East London you'll find no more perfect a location in such tranquil surroundings than my apartment in Galleons Point."
