An expansive 1445sqft Grade II listed townhouse, centrally positioned alongside South Dock Marina, offering stunning views across the water. Arranged over three floors, this bright, triple-aspect property has a primary bedroom with double height ceiling, two bathrooms, a balcony, large kitchen and a garage. Chain free.

The entrance hall can be accessed from both the front and rear of the house. The ground floor also has a spacious bedroom, shower room, garage, utility area and two large storage cupboards. As well as the second bedroom with balcony, the first floor houses the living area and the huge kitchen. On the second floor you will find the primary bedroom with double height ceilings, fitted wardrobes and a large ensuite bathroom.

This fascinating share-of-freehold home holds huge potential. We have sold two other houses within the development that originally were identical in layout when first constructed. All have had alternations to create vastly different spaces. Possible adjustments to this property (whilst retaining three bedrooms), include reinstating the full-width reception and creating an additional room (ideally as a guest space or home office) at the top of the house by splitting the double height area.

While some updating is required, existing features include a communal courtyard garden and bike store, gas central heating powered by a modern boiler, a recent installed electrical consumer unit, full double-glazing, original mosaic parquet flooring on the ground level (engineered wood floors throughout the rest of the property), on-street permit parking and high-speed broadband available through Hyperoptic. All rooms benefit from south or west facing aspects.

Swedish Quays is a complex of 95 flats and houses. 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. There are two communal gardens in the centre of the courtyards.

Set in tranquil surroundings, nestled between Greenland Dock and South Dock Marina, you will also find the Thames Path and Greenland Pier at the top of the road, offering an alternative way of commuting both to the city and Canary Wharf via the river bus service. A scenic walk takes you to Canada Water Station (Jubilee Line & London Overground, Zone 2) and Surrey Quays Station (London Overground, Zone 2). Nearby is Surrey Docks Fitness and Watersports Centre, together with the shops, informal restaurants and green spaces in the recently created developments along Plough Way, including Tesco Express and The Pear Tree Kitchen.

The property will benefit from significant investment in the area, including the underway 53-acre / £5.6Bn project, the Canada Water Masterplan, with London's first new high street in over 100 years. There is also the newly proposed electric ferry service with six crossings an hour (for pedestrians and cyclists) between Surrey Quays and Canary Wharf from 2025.

Leasehold, with a share of the freehold. The service charge is £2,124 per annum (includes building insurance and external upkeep), there is no ground rent to pay and the lease has 963 full years remaining. Southwark Council Tax Band: G.
