Close to the Royal Observatory in Greenwich, West Grove has fine views of its own. From the entrance, stairs to the left lead up to the sitting room and kitchen, where exposed brickwork is tempered by clean lines and wooden floorboards. Half-moon windows frame views of the London skyline, from St Paul’s to the Shard, and the roof terrace beyond is equally panoramic. Downstairs, opposite the entrance, the bedroom with cot overlooks the green you passed outside.
Further down the hallway, a double bedroom is on the left. A second double bedroom (left again) has masculine black furniture and a light beige ensuite, while the master (to the right) is contemporary in white and grey. With Greenwich Market, the Cutty Sark and the O2 nearby, there’s more to do in this home than just watch.
