Hot homes: Docklands, east London for less than £500,000

We’ve taken a property tour to find contemporary apartment schemes overlooking buzzing quaysides with new restaurants and bars — all for less than £500,000.
Docklands has been a property hot spot for decades but as regeneration spreads further east, buyers are able to find waterside homes only four miles from the City in chic post-industrial settings — and with affordable price tags.

Stunning warehouse conversions and new apartment blocks overlook quayside restaurants, bars, marinas and yacht basins, offering a relaxed lifestyle on the doorstep of central London. The Docklands Light Railway connects this area to City Airport, and by 2017 the Royal Docks will have their new Crossrail station at Custom House, with high-speed trains to the West End and Heathrow Airport.

We take a property tour with a budget of £500,000 to discover waterfront homes from the Royal Docks to Millharbour, Crossharbour, Limehouse and West India Quay.

£499,995: Homer Drive, Mudchute
