A Premier Development

You may be aware that The Royal Arsenal has military history dating back over 300 years but did you know that it was also once home to a now Premier League football team?

In 1886 workers in Dial Square had formed the the Dial Square Football Club, and by 1891 they were playing a draw with West Bromich Albion. By that time they had become the Woolwich Arsenal Football Club and in 1903 they played Blackburm Rovers a game they won.

In 1913 they became 'Arsenal' and moved to their now former ground 'Highbury'

The Property

Building 47 is located within a gated courtyard area of 7 former warehouse buildings all converted into residential properties by Berkeley Homes.

The building itself has a central fob controlled entrance into the communal areas with the entrance lobby having a central tiled floor with '47' prominent in the middle.

The property is located on the top floor of the building, towards its southern end.

Upon entering the flat you are greeted by the good sized entrance hall which gives access to the living room, downstairs cloakroom, has a built in cupboard with space for a washer/dryer and the spiral staircase to the upper floor.

The living room faces west with two big full height windows flooding the room with natural light and these are framed by the exposed brickwork. Stand close to these windows and you can see the River Thames as well as a great view of Building 46, an architecturally stunning former warehouse.

Tucked just off the living room is the fitted kitchen with cherry wood fronted units and built in appliances that include a gas hob, oven, extractor hood, dishwasher and space for an upright fridge/freezer or two!

On the upper floor are the two good sized double bedrooms both of which have ensuites, one a bathroom, the other a shower room. Both bedrooms have glazed windows providing sound proofing from the living room below and these also make the most of the light from the windows below, but they also have two skylight windows in each room so are naturally light.

Back off the landing is a large walk in cupboard or storage room with good ceiling heights which could easily be a dressing room for those that like to shop!

The property also comes with one allocated parking space in private gated car park as part of the purchase.
