Why move to Greenwich?
A lot of daily life in the borough revolves around the Royal Park, where there are the usual grazing deer, green spaces and orchards, but also the stunning Royal Observatory and the globally significant Prime Meridian Line – where the recording of time begins and ends. The borough has a variety of housing options, all well suited to city commuters but with a wide breadth that spans chic riverside apartments for professionals, charming Victorian cottages for young families and downsizers, and large Georgian and Edwardian villas for older families. Though the navy may have left, its heritage remains and many day-trippers head east to explore the beautiful Old Royal Naval College and its stunning Painted Hall. With excellent amenities and stunning city and river views, Greenwich is a superb choice.
Architecture and property
Greenwich has a variety of available property, from Georgian and Victorian period conversions and houses to ultra-modern riverside developments. Popular addresses include the villas and terraces of the Ashburnham Triangle in much-favoured West Greenwich; Crooms Hill, which runs the length of Greenwich Park’s western edge; the neo-Georgian houses of Hyde Vale; the landmark New Capital Quay apartment building; and the riverside Peninsula Tower apartments on the North Greenwich peninsula, which have stunning views of Canary Wharf.
