Property of the Day: Mariners Mews, The Isle of Dogs
THE PROPERTY: This quirky townhouse on the edge of the river Thames has been lovingly refurbished by its current owner. With a garage and off-street parking, the property has accommodation spread across four floors and offers glorious views of the Thames that are maximised by its two large balconies.
THE LOCATION: The property is situated in a quiet part of the Isle of Dogs, directly on the Thames, providing the perfect balance between the urban kaleidoscope of Canary Wharf and the tranquillity of the river. Mariners Mews is serviced by Mudchute and Island Gardens DLR stations, making for an easy commute in and out of the city. The neighbourhood has numerous schools for all ages, with Mudchute Park and Farm close by.
THE INTERIOR: Oozing charm and charisma, the house has four double bedrooms with high ceilings, two bathrooms, a WC, a separate kitchen and a dining-room. The living room opens out into the garden, which leads down to the river.
WHY WE LOVE IT: The living-room has a large sash bay window that acts as a cosy reading nook, perfect for rainy days.
