1 bed flat in shooters hill/woolwich common area of South East London.
Very green, being literally across the road from Woolwich Barracks (sports fields) and Woolwich Common (local nature reserve), very pet friendly if you have dogs or cats.
Due to the location it’s ideal for working in central london. My landlord is the local Council and the flat comes with RTB. The block is 4 floors high, I’m on 3rd, lifts available.
The rent is approx 99 a week give or take. Council tax 68 a month with single person discount. There’s car parking and garages available to rent from the council seperately.
The postcode is se18 4hd (but google maps shows you the car park and bin area which isnt the prettiest in the world), THIS IS NOT MY OUTLOOK, I DO NOT HAVE THAT VIEW)
I’m 10 minutes walk away from town centre, half hour on bus from o2, 25 minutes door to door to my work in canary wharf, can be in central london in less than 40 minutes (even less than that when crossrail comes), and city airport is very conveniently just across the river.
The council will be replacing the whole bathroom soon, and embarking on a wide refurbishment of the communal areas in the next few years.
This flat is great, I could easily spend many more happy years here. I have recently broken up with a long term partner, and want to move somewhere quieter where he does not know where I live.
Any place I chose must have either a large balcony like I have now, or a private garden as I have 3 dogs.
