City Escape Or City Break? London Pads Becoming A Hot Spot For Weekend Getaways
01 Apr 2016

Househunters might be forgiven for thinking that weekend getaway pads are best for escaping the city rather than escaping to it.

Yet increasingly, people are flocking to the capital rather than away from it, to wind-down and relax for a weekend break. There are few places in London that offer a more convenient location to do so than The Residence in Southwark, which has already proved popular with weekend holiday-makers.

A collection of one and two-bedroom apartments from award-winning housebuilder Linden Homes, The Residence offers luxury living on a grand scale.

Situated on Blackfriars Road, these boutique apartments offer a lucky few a host of cultural and vibrant entertainment on their doorstep. Minutes away from the SE1 entrance, the cultural centres of international acclaim are just minutes away on foot.

Easy transport connections for travelling across the capital and beyond are a short walk away. Located in Zone one, the closest rail link is Southwark Station, only 3 minutes’ walk (0.1 miles), with London Waterloo providing access to an extensive network across the UK, making it an ideal spot to reach from the South and South West by rail.

Darren Maddox, Managing Director at Linden Homes South East, said: “Increasingly, people living outside London are looking for a city home to enjoy on the weekends. Due to its enviable location, The Residence can provide just that.

“In moments you can be sipping cocktails at celebrity haunts in one of the most vibrant cities in the world, or visiting some of the most famous attractions across the globe.

“The apartments are incredibly popular and only two of the exclusive homes remain, so we’d advise people interested to get in touch to avoid missing out.”

Both apartments available feature a private outdoor space for al fresco dining, as well as access to the beautiful shared rooftop garden with stunning views to the Shard and beyond.

Each home has a beautifully designed open plan kitchen / living / dining room including a fully-fitted kitchen, built to the highest specifications. A video entry systems and a concierge service are also features of the development. In addition, there is a 10-year NHBC warranty and a two-year customer care warranty for peace of mind.
