Spending time by the riverside, coast or any type of ‘blue space’ has long been considered beneficial to people’s health, with studies including the Blue Gym project proving the great effects of outdoor activity in, on or near water. London buyers looking to enjoy a relaxing environment in the heart of the capital, should look at the impressive Thameside Iverna Quay apartments currently available at Greenwich Millennium Village, SE10.
Iverna Quay offers stylish one and two-bedroom apartments and three-bedroom maisonettes. Also available is our three bedroom Überhaus collection. Split over two levels, this collection of apartments offer a range of features ideal for flexible living including open plan kitchen/living and dining areas, higher than average ceilings, multiple balconies or terraces and impressive feature glazing offering striking City views. Situated adjacent to the Greenwich Yacht Club, residents can not only enjoy the blue views from the apartments, but can enjoy spending time sailing boats on the River Thames, as well as running alongside of it, enjoying as many health benefits as possible.
On the Peninsula, 50 acres of land has been developed as parkland, including a four-acre ecology park, which features an inner and an outer pond where residents can enjoy spending time relaxing and watching the fascinating variety of wildlife that lives in this urban oasis. Residents can also take advantage of the huge amount of green open space with landscaped courtyards and a new eco play area. A number of running and cycle paths run adjacent to the Thames, passing the Iverna Quay building.
Chris Bladon, a Director of GMV Limited comments: “The River Thames, Greenwich Yacht Club and Ecology Park can all be seen from the new apartments, combining the best of city life and relaxing blue natural space. With stunning views and fantastic amenities right on the doorstep, these Thameside apartments are the perfect properties in which residents can fully embrace waterside living at GMV.”
