Our home

Our apartment block has a secure door entry system and our apartment is on the ground floor facing an internal lagoon. It has a small terrace where we love to sit and watch the fountains in the lagoon. The apartment is well equipped with all necessary kitchen appliances including a full size oven, microwave, dishwasher and washer/dryer. The layout is typical of modern apartments in London with the kitchen, dining and living areas in one large space. The main bedroom has a queen size bed while the second bedroom has a sofabed most suitable for a single person. The ensuite has a bath with shower overhead while the other bathroom has a walk-in shower.

The development, which is adjacent to the River Thames, includes a 24 hour concierge service, two cafes, two pubs/restaurants, a mini supermarket, a heritage museum, green open spaces and access to riverside walks.

Property features

Who we are

  1. We are a retired professional couple in our late 60s/early 70s. One of our sons is currently working in New York while his wife studies for a Masters Degree at Columbia University. We are hoping to visit them in October 2016 and are therefore looking specifically for an exchange with someone in Manhattan . We also have a home in Norwich, Norfolk, UK so the homeswap does not have to be simultaneous.

Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

Our apartment is located in a 10 year old block in the historic Royal Arsenal Riverside development, the Army former military parade ground, munitions storage and factory site dating from 1761. Now it is a quiet, peaceful residential area featuring renovated and converted historic buildings together with some new apartment blocks.

Greenwich, Blackheath and the O2 are nearby and it is very easy to travel to central London via rail or DLR, both ten minutes walk away, or by river bus whose pier is on the development.
