Nestled in the Isle of Dogs, between the high rise offices and the Thames, stands a beautiful, red brick converted church - now known as the Space. This Grade II listed building is a rising star of the performing arts scene and a crucial community centre for locals, presenting cutting edge theatre and quickly becoming one of the most exciting Fringe venues in London. This October their in house theatre company Space Productions are celebrating their 10 year anniversary with Howard Barker’s brilliantly funny and powerful ‘The Castle’, an epic tale of love, power and betrayal.
It’s a rainy day in middle England and Stucley returns home from the War to find his land untended, his sheep wild and his wife in bed with a witch. In the absence of men, a new way of life has emerged. No religion. No class. No hunger. The women are in charge now. They have their freedom and they’re not going to give it back. Stucley orders the erection of a castle to restore order and revive the old way of life. Will he succeed or will he inspire more conflict? This will be the 24th production from Off West End Award nominated Space Productions, a company with an impressive reputation for presenting ambitious, accessible and bold theatre. ‘The Castle’ is no exception. The cast is vast, the script is epic, the costumes beautiful and the language colourful and they have a brilliant team of rising star actors and talented creatives piecing it all together.

What the vendor says... "I was attracted to the property by the river view and the quiet location, having moved from Fleet Street which, although a very convenient location was very noisy, even on the fourth floor. There's always something happening on the river, with plenty of opportunities for the twitcher, with a variety of bird life, and even an occasional seal. The block is very well run, and as the tenure is as a share of the freehold there are opportunities to be involved in the building management."

What the vendor says... "We moved to Parkside Avenue over three years ago and Greenwich has been an incredible home ever since. A short walk from both Greenwich and Blackheath centres, the enviable location of our apartment has offered the best of both worlds - on the doorstep of some of London's best parks, markets and village style pubs/restaurants but a short commute to London's key areas of commerce and nightlife. As the development has grown, so has the community and the hugely helpful concierge team have proved a glue; always ready to advise and assist. Whilst it's time for us to move on, I've no doubt the new owners will enjoy this modern apartment and the beautiful surrounding areas as much as we did."

What the vendor says... What the vendor says - "The flat has been completely refurbished to a high standard, with a new kitchen, bathrooms, and flooring throughout. It has a very generous living space compared to other apartments in the area, with ample storage. A key feature is the large terrace with spectacular views across London. The flat is one of only a handful in the Odyssey complex that have direct access through the terrace to the private courtyard area at the back of the complex. The position is also excellent – the morning sunshine comes through the front of the building, and creeps around to the back into the afternoon and evening. It is lovely to sit on the terrace in the late afternoon and see the sun set over the Thames behind the Shard. The Odyssey complex has been a wonderful place to reside, with its friendly staff and excellent 24-hour concierge. There is also a full-equipped gym. Communal areas are cleaned daily, and both the inside and outside areas are treated with care and maintained to a high standard. A number of residents have lived here for many years, and there is a real sense of community. In terms of getting around, Canary Wharf (DLR / Jubilee Line) is within a 15-20-minute walking distance, and Mudchute DLR station is a ten-minute walk away. At least two buses serve Canary Wharf (D7; 135), and with the bus stop on the doorstep you can be at Canary Wharf in less than ten minutes of leaving the flat. Greenwich Foot Tunnel can also be reached in a 15-minute walk, and it is around a 5-minute walk to Masthouse Terrace Pier for the Thames Clipper. Driving is also very convenient, and the flat comes with its own parking space within the gated complex. Canary Wharf as a location to live offers everything one could want. There are excellent shops and too many restaurants to name, as well as a good cinema in West India Quay. The Docklands Museum is a nice place to visit at the weekend. There is a large Waitrose and John Lewis, and nothing is ever too busy at the weekend. "
Accommodation comprises of a main entrance with entry phone system and lift, a large entrance hall with access to a WC, French doors leading into a large living room with an open plan dining area access to large south facing terrace with views of the River Thames, a re-fitted, semi open-plan kitchen.
