About

Very bright, well situated apartment in a lovely, quiet, contemporary development in its own grounds, in Central London. The apartment is in excellent condition. It is on the 5th floor (with elevator as well as stairs), and has beautiful Thames views from the large living room, and balcony (with chairs and table) through sliding doors off the living room. This also overlooks gorgeous landscaped water gardens (with ducks, fish and occasional heron). The spacious living room is very light, with double-doors through to the hallway, glass dining table (seats 4-6), two sofas and large arm chair. Fiber-optic high-speed wi-fi, digital freeview flat screen smart television, dvd player, stereo systems. The apartment has an en-suite master bedroom, with very good quality, (UK) king-sized mattress, modern bathroom fixtures (including a bidet and bath with shower), Second bathroom with shower stall, second bedroom can be used as a study/ office and has a very good quality single bed. There is a modern, well-equipped kitchen (microwave, grill, oven, washer/ dryer machine, dishwasher), and is fully equipped (with cafetiere, coffee grinder, blender, toaster etc). The second sofa/ John Lewis contemporary day-bed in the living room makes an excellent spot for relaxing, listening to music, watching tv, and for occasional guests. The complex also has a gym/ sauna. All utilities are included (including local telephone calls), fortnightly clean, and the cost of a standard final clean after leaving. The apartment is 5 minutes walk to Bermondsey Station (on the Jubilee Line). Northern and Central Line stations are also within 15 minutes walk. Going west along the river from the condo, you will pass the Bridge Theatre, London's city hall, the Globe Theatre, Tate Modern, and South Bank (London's premier arts-complex, including the National Theatre, and Royal Festival Hall). Across the river is the Tower of London, opposite is St Katherine's Docks, and beyond that the City, Covent Garden and the West End. The Barbican and Brick Lane can be easily reached (by foot or public transportation). Subway and buses close to the apartment provide excellent access to different parts of London. Within 5 minutes walk, the 188 bus, for instance, takes you to Bloomsbury (SOAS, UCL, passing King's, LSE and SBU). River boat transportation also takes you west towards Westminster and east to Canary Wharf and Greenwich. Within 5-10 minutes walk, there are a range of delis and local supermarkets. A large Waitrose is 20 minutes walk away. The condo is located in Shad Thames, a spectacular area of ultra-modern and historic buildings in what was the old warehouse district, and is now a mixture of conversions, new condos, restaurants (for outdoor and indoor eating), and stunning architecture.
