Apartment | 1 bedrooms | sleeps 4
Spacious one bedroom garden flat, with all modern facilities located within the 2nd zone and 10 mins to London Bridge station. The property comes fully equipped with all modern day essential;s to include wi-fi. internet television; dish washer and fully fitted kitchen.
Occupying the garden flat of a property which has a great history in being initially built at the turn of the century, bombed during the second world war and then partially rebuilt in the early 1950's.
The location at the price provides a compelling opportunity for a group of young friends wanting to visit London to spend a week or a weekend break without paying the pocket breaking fees of a London hotel.
The price includes the provision of all laundry services (Towels and linen).
The property will adequately house 4 people or five, depending on the guests, though sleeping facilities are serviced by the provision of a king size bed in the main bedroom and a sofa bed in the front room ( as depicted in the photos).
The kitchen is large enough to hold a small table and chairs ( which has not been displayed in the photos but will be provided).
The area where the property is located is well serviced both by the trains, the DLR service through Canary Wharf, and one of the best networks of day and night buses to make getting to and from the Centre of London easily accessible.
As can be seen from the map of London, you are within easy reach of the picturesque Blackheath Village and Greenich Park, only 12 and 18 mins walk away respectively. From the latter you can take a boat ride on the Thames and discover great views of London from the great old river, including a journey directly under Tower Bridge.
In terms of the train routes into Central London, you can alight at London Bridge Station and pay a visit to Rianzo Piano's Shard of Glass or get off the train at Waterloo and visit the Millennium Wheel or go directly to Charring Cross Station.
Its no secret that London is an expensive city, but what is on offer is good value for money.
Realistically its not South Kensington or Hyde Park, and this flat will not give you views of the river at the expense of being caged in a featureless box that promises to hold eight people when it was designed to hold 1.5 maximum.
I would gather from your interest that you are here to see London and not be concerned about a fake Carravaggio on the walls, so a well located clean, well spaced apartment that will hold and not squash 4 of you in will be of priority to yourself and your friends.
At this price I can personally guarantee that you cannot get any better value for your money in a characterless new build property.

Places of Interest
Greenwich which borders Lewisham is one of the most visited sites in London and by extension the UK.
Take a walk from the house to the historic Blackheath village ( fabled for the famous poisonings and the previous place of worse for the then Reverand Terry Waite in the early 1990's).
The village and the heath is always a hive of activity, and a place where one can enjoy a picnic if they have the time or a meal in the evenings or night.
Walk from Blackheath through Greenwich Park and create a bit of your personal history through standing on the line of Longitude yourself.
Explore the rest of the park with views extending over great swathes of the City of London.
Visit the Greenwich Observatory for free or the many short shows on the solar system for the kids to enjoy at reasonable prices.
Descend through the park and explore the maritime settings of this historical town, including the restored Cutty Sark, now a museum.
Take a river taxi and see the Splendor of the modern day Thames
The cost of the ride from Greenwich to Westminster is about 6.30, on which you can enjoy the views of the splendid developments along the river.
