As well as the second bedroom, the first floor houses the living area with beautiful light oak floors, balcony with views across the marina and the updated kitchen which benefits from plenty of storage and modern integrated appliances including a large gas hob. The second floor comprises the light and airy master suite and the main bathroom, while on the top floor you will find the calming study space and additional storage both in the eves and the loft.

Swedish Quays is a complex of 95 flats and houses nestled in between Greenland Dock and South Dock Marina. It was built in the late 1980s by Roger Malcom Homes and designed by David Price and Gordon Cullen, the latter being Britain's most influential planning theorist and architectural illustrator of the post-war period. The development was given Grade II listed status in 2018 due to its multi-layered detailing, use of good quality materials and its contextually astute design, referencing the former buildings and dock walls of the previously industrial landscape in which it sits.

The tranquil surroundings include the docks and the Thames Path. Nearby is Surrey Docks Fitness and Watersports Centre, together with the amenities and green spaces of the recently developed Greenland Place, including Tesco Express and Plough Way Cafe. A scenic walk takes you to Canada Water Station (Jubilee Line & London Overground, Zone 2) and Surrey Quays Station (London Overground, Zone 2). The River Taxi services from Greenland Pier also offer an alternative way of commuting with Canary Wharf reachable in 19 minutes' door-to-door.

The Canada Water Masterplan will bring exciting developments to the area, with the first phase due to be complete by 2021. This initial stage will provide new civic space, a leisure centre, housing, shops and workspace to the west of the iconic library. The whole project incorporates the current shopping centre, retail park and the old newspaper factory sites.

The service charge is £1,356 per annum (includes buildings insurance), the ground rent is £140 per annum and the lease can be extended to 999 years for a minimal cost.
