Culture Vultures Flock To Boutique Apartments At The Residence
11 Dec 2015

There are few places in London which can equal the South Bank for its sheer density and variety of cultural attractions.

Visitors are inspired to travel hours from across the country – and the world – to experience venues made famous for the quality of their art, theatre, food and music.

A lucky few, however, are privileged to live on the doorstep of these prestigious locations, including recent buyers at The Residence, on Blackfriars Road, a premium collection of boutique apartments from award-winning Linden Homes.

From the stylish building’s SE1 front entrance, cultural centres of international acclaim are just minutes away on foot, as are key transport connections for travelling across the capital and further afield.

  • Southwark Station – 3 minutes' walk (0.1 miles)
  • Waterloo station – 8 minutes' walk (0.4 miles)
  • Ministry of Sound – 10 minutes' walk (0.5 miles)
  • Gabriel's Wharf – 11 minutes' walk (0.5 miles)
  • OXO Restaurant, Bar and Brasserie – 11 minutes' walk (0.5 miles)
  • National Theatre – 13 minutes' walk (0.6 miles)
  • Southbank Centre – 14 minutes' walk (0.7 miles)
  • Shakespeare's Globe – 14 minutes' walk (0.7 miles)
  • Tate Modern – 14 minutes' walk (0.7 miles)
  • Borough Market – 15 minutes' walk (0.7 miles)
  • The Shard – 18 minutes' walk (0.9 miles)

Househunters who want to buy into this cultural landscape don’t have long to act. Just four of the exclusive homes remain: a trio of two-bedroom apartments, and a single one-bedroom apartment.

All properties at The Residence feature either their own balcony or terrace for some private outdoor space, as well as access to the stunning shared rooftop garden with entrancing views north to the Shard.

Dylan May, land, sales and marketing director at Linden Homes South East, said: “The Residence has so much going for it, but its location has to be high up the list – just a stroll from venues people travel hundreds of miles to enjoy perhaps just once in their lives.

“It’s not just about the enviable postcode, however. The residence offers a truly exclusive home to return to with high quality finishes and features. It’s why they’ve proved so popular – we’re advising people to get in touch now to avoid missing out.”

Each home also comes as standard with fitted kitchens, video entry systems and a concierge service. For peace of mind, there is also a 10-year NHBC warranty and a two-year customer care warranty.
