The value of a view

Greenwich is renowned for having some of the most stunning views in London. From the area you can see the rolling greenery of the 180 acre Park and the skyscrapers and notable buildings in Canary Wharf and the city centre. This incredible juxtaposition is a sight that commands a great deal of value for property buyers.

The Borough has a very interesting landscape. The lowest elevation can be found along the 8.5 miles of riverside. Further south the land rises in hills before it reaches Blackheath. This means that many people living in the area can enjoy stunning views to the north and take in the sights of the capital.

One major quality that sets Greenwich apart is the amount of space. There are lots of spacious properties in the borough, which accounts for its popularity with families. Some of these properties have been converted to create apartments due to demand from professionals who want to live in a green area. There are homes to suit all kinds of buyers, from attractive tree lined streets to apartments in close proximity to transport links.

In the district you can even have the opportunity to live in a castle. Vanburgh Castle is situated a short distance from the northern tip of Greenwich Park on Maze Hill. The main structure was designed with a medieval style, taking inspiration from Gothic properties. It was finished in 1719 and attracted huge interest. One of the most impressive features was the roof garden and the stunning views it offers.

The Castle was Grade 1 listed in 1951, ensuring it would be protected because of its historical and architectural importance. Even with this it was allowed to be split into four flats. The homes are highly sought as a result of the history of the property and the incredible location. It was surprising that one was put on the market towards the end of April. The £2.9 million price tag reflects the rarity of the home and the stunning location it offers.
