Family Mosaic - Charters Wharf, SE10
Charters Wharf is a beautifully designed modern building with a contemporary elegance and a sense of the heritage of waterside warehouses.
The layered façade and angular footprint of the building create a sleek and modern impression that is softened by the subtle brick colourings and the generous inset glass balconies.
These stylish apartments benefit from stunning views, high quality internal specification and excellent transport links to Canary Wharf and Central London.
In 2000, Greenwich became home to the Millennium Dome, now the O2 Arena, one of the UK’s premier events venues. The arena runs a packed schedule of events ranging from appearances from the Dalai Lama to the Strictly Come Dancing live shows. When it comes to places to eat you can take your pick from traditional pie and mash at Goddards, to contemporary restaurants like The Rivington Grill or Jamie’s Italian. The Trafalgar Tavern, with views out over the river is still one of London’s most popular Sunday lunch venues offering traditional roast dinners. Just a short walk from winding cobbled streets and Georgian terraces, Charters Wharf is near to some of London’s best green spaces. Greenwich Park is host to the much-loved Wilderness Deer Park, a variety of sports facilities and regular events, such as family arts festivals, Greenwich & Docklands International Festival and regular charity runs. It’s a central part of Greenwich life. The Cutty Sark, one of London’s most famous visitor attractions, is in a dry dock that links the village markets to the river walkways. Here you’ll also find a foot tunnel that goes under the River Thames and links Greenwich with the Isle of Dogs.
The local area offers great choices for schools and colleges with an excellent range of pre-school, primary and secondary school options. Charters Wharf has two excellent nurseries just a few hundred metres away – Zippys and Smart Teenies. James Wolfe Primary School and John Roan Secondary School, both scoring ‘good’ in their latest Ofsted reports, are the closest options for state schools. The Laban Dance Academy offers programmes and courses for students, and there is a wealth of higher education options available through the award-winning University of Greenwich or Goldsmiths College, both nearby. A short journey into London gives access to some of the finest colleges and universities in the world, such as Imperial College London, Royal Holloway and the London School of Economics and Political Science.
The village hub combines a range of independent shops and restaurants with many established high street brands including Marks & Spencer, Boots and Waterstones. The world renowned market is not only one of the greatest assets for local residents, but also a major tourist attraction. Established in 1737, the market has long been integral to life in the Royal Borough. Originally sited in the grounds of the old Royal Naval College in the early 1800s, it was re-sited to its current location in the heart of Greenwich. Today, the market offers a range of antiques, crafts and food and is popular with both tourists and local residents alike.
