The Peltons in Greenwich aims to plug the gap between the gracious old naval town’s historic centre and the semi-detached new neighbourhood growing up a mile away around the O2 arena.
After many years of stop-start regeneration, the area in between these two places is smartening up. Derelict wharves are being converted and the riverbank opened up, while tired-looking shopping parades are getting a facelift with the arrival of galleries, gastropubs and delis.
“It’s a chance to buy early into an unsung part of Greenwich with upside,” says Mike Bickerton of selling agent DTZ. Completion is due next September. Prices from £305,000. Overground trains to Cannon Street from nearby Maize Hill station take 10 minutes and there is a Jubilee line station next to the O2.
