Berkeley Homes is showcasing Waterfront I in Malaysia with a series of private one-to-one appointments held by Knight Frank Malaysia, providing the opportunity to purchase a new home in one of London’s best connected riverside development.
Located within easy reach of central London, the cultural and historic centre of Greenwich, and boasting excellent resident facilities, Royal Arsenal Riverside has it all.
Ideally situated in the Royal Borough of Greenwich, the newly launched collection, comprising of 91 Manhattan, one, two and three bedroom apartments and penthouses, will be delivered alongside a new four acre community park, 20 metre bespoke swimming pool and spa, fitness suite, and 24 hour hotel-style Concierge service.
The large properties, with internal space of up to 1,640 sq ft also benefit from stunning finishes crafted by one of the UK’s leading interior designers, David Ferns of CID Interieur, to ensure that each new home has a fresh, contemporary feel, which maximises views of the River Thames. All homes feature the state of the art appliances and come with private outdoor space through the provision of either a balcony or terrace.
The development already benefits from a forthcoming onsite Crossrail station, which will dramatically reduce journey times into central London in 2018, when the rail network becomes operational. Journeys from Woolwich to key destinations such as Canary Wharf, Liverpool Street and Farringdon will be more than halved to 8 minutes, 14 minutes and 17 minutes respectively. In addition, Royal Arsenal Riverside has its own pier for Thames Clippers services, as well as Dockland Light Railway (DLR) and National Rail services nearby. The convenient positioning of the development also allows easy journeys to London’s airports by public transport, including connections to City Airport in just eight minutes.
Lyndon Nunn, Sales Director of Berkeley Homes (East Thames), comments: “What makes Royal Arsenal Riverside such a wonderfully unique scheme is its combination of historic and contemporary buildings. The launch of Waterfront I highlights Berkeley’s commitment to developing brand new, modern structures which bring central London chic to southeast London.
“The new park, which is equivalent to 13 Olympic sized swimming pools, will provide the local community with a peaceful outdoor space, whilst bringing Crossrail, Royal Arsenal Riverside and the River Thames even closer together.”
The new park, which is being created by landscape architects Gillespies, will allow residents arriving at the development’s onsite Crossrail station to take a tranquil journey through Royal Arsenal Riverside to the riverfront, where they can enjoy over one kilometre of river walk and uninterrupted views extending to the Thames Barrier. Spanning four acres, the landscaped park is set to become an exciting and compelling link drawing people to the heart of the development – the River Thames.
On the doorstep, residents will find a number of onsite facilities and amenities, including a flagship Young’s gastropub, Cornerstone café, and health and wellbeing centre as well as a forthcoming Sainsbury’s supermarket not to mention the Geronimo Inn restaurant which will open next year and. In addition to the dynamic community created within the development, Royal Arsenal Riverside offers residents a buzzing, vibrant cultural scene in Woolwich. The area is renowned for its lively street market, arts centre and theatre, as well as being home to a number of high street brands and local boutique shops.
Residents of the Royal Borough of Greenwich can also enjoy landmarks including the Royal Observatory, Royal Artillery Barracks and Greenwich Royal Parks on their doorstep, along with the attractions of historic Greenwich town centre, world class 02 Arena, as well as both quaint Blackheath Village and the shops and restaurants of Canary Wharf nearby.
