Join us as we peek inside a charming riverfront home in Rotherhithe Village, with extensive outside spaces and inimitable views of the Thames and some of London's most famous landmarks.
Location, location, location
This month's property is located at Elephant Lane, in the heart of picturesque Rotherhithe Village.
Speaking of Rotherhithe’s charm, George Barker from Cluttons’ Tower Bridge office tells us; “You don’t feel as if you’re in Central London here. It’s the best of both worlds – you have the wonderful feeling of being part of a small village, a little community - but with the benefit of being so close to the City and its vibrant lifestyle. We’ve recently seen interest from buyers who had previously discounted Rotherhithe. For a pleasant walk further East you get so much more space - and outside space with a beautiful view for that matter. In Shad Thames, right now you’d be spending considerably more”.
There’s plenty of country pub-style locals on your doorstep including the River Thames’ oldest pub, The Mayflower. A traditional English pub surrounded by quaint cobbled streets, from which you’re able to spot the original 1620 mooring point of the Pilgrim Father’s Mayflower ship. If you like to run or walk off your pub lunch there are two popular parks close by.
Rotherhithe Village is home to Brunel Museum, which tells London’s story of an engineering family that changed the world. Brunel organised the world’s first underground concert party there in 1827 and today the museum celebrates and interprets music and theatre as well as engineering.
Looking for an easy commute? This home is a short distance to Rotherhithe and Canada Water underground stations and the Thames Pathway runs directly in front of the property.
About the house
Overlooking the River Thames, this freehold home stands at an impressive five storeys high, exceeding 1,900 sq ft in space. It’s a unique opportunity to acquire a freehold house that’s positioned on the riverfront - a rare find given most properties in the area are converted warehouse apartments.
With four double bedrooms, three bathrooms and three reception rooms there’s plenty of space to make this place your own. The set up could easily change to feature a home office or media room.
One of the most extraordinary benefits of the house is the sheer level of outside space – with five separate outside areas on both sides (south and north-facing) of the house and three balconies, you’re spoilt for choice. Because the property is located on the curvature of the River, you are in prime position for the most spectacular views over the Thames and to some of London’s most prominent landmarks.
With plenty of storage throughout and a private off-street parking space, those looking for a tranquil oasis not far from the City, need look no further.
Guide price: £1,750,000.
