Clegg house, named after the famed engineer William Clegg, one of the early innovators who helped implement the use of gas in homes, was originally built to house gas workers in the early 1930's. Now, nearly 100 years on one of these timeless properties is being made available for sale, still sporting the charm and character from yesteryear. Parque flooring adorns the floor, the sash windows and the sense of community that so tightly knitted its original occupants does so again now within the development.
Flats of this type, age and character rarely come to market in this area, predominantly known for its new builds. "This property provides something different" states it's current owner, who also mentions the enjoyment received chatting and meeting with neighbors for a drink after work or a weekend BBQ in the immaculately kept communal gardens.
The flat itself is beautifully appointed having benefited from a recent renovation, and provides 3 double bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, a spacious living room with bay window and open fireplace and kitchen/diner with balcony off, where views of the nearby park can be enjoyed; The modern kitchen is finished to the highest standard, with fully integrated Smeg appliances. The apartment also offers high ceilings and large windows, giving a real feeling of space.
Southwark park is a stones throw away providing tennis courts, running track and hosting a number of local events, as well as being a lovely place to take a stroll. The Thames walk is also nearby allowing for sightseeing walks to Tower bridge or Greenwich alike.
Canada Water tube station, also on the doorstep, provides travel to central London and all it has to offer but if staying local is more your thing there are some amazing independent local coffee shops, restaurants and night spots, all within the Rotherhithe peninsula.
