According to research conducted by the European Centre for the Environment and Human Health, those living closer to the waterside are reporting better health and overall wellbeing that, in turn, also makes them happy. Further research by Knight Frank shows that the premium on waterside properties is now 70% over those inland.
Offering a collection of waterside apartments in the heart of London’s Docklands, but without the associated price tag, Bellway’s Dockside development in E14 offers a range of one-, two- and three-bedroom apartments priced from just £384,995.
Some of the properties at Dockside have stunning views across the quay, as well as plenty of modern amenities. The location is the perfect place for city workers looking for some escapism, but with plenty going on to explore during the warmer summer months.
Bellway’s Sales Director, Peter Knights, comments: “The apartments at Dockside all offer private outdoors space in the form of balconies or terraces, ideal for al fresco dining on the waterfront. London’s Docklands provide so much for residents in the form of local amenities, with restaurants, bars and Canary Wharf’s shopping district all within a few minutes from home.”
All of the apartments at Dockside have a contemporary design with a high quality specification. The living and dining areas are open plan, which is spacious and light-filled, thanks to full height glazing leading out to a balcony or terrace. Kitchens are fully fitted with a range of modern units and integrated appliances including a fridge/freezer and electric oven.
Bedrooms are generously proportioned, with the master bedrooms benefiting from built-in wardrobes and en-suite shower rooms. The bathrooms feature crisp, white sanitary ware and chrome fixtures and fittings, while the en-suites include full height tiling. Residents also benefit from access to a concierge, ideal for modern city lifestyles.
Wide range of amenities
For local amenities and leisure activities, nearby Canary Wharf is not just a place of work, but is also home to three shopping malls, each boasting a range of high-street and high-end brands, as well as a wide range of restaurants, bars and cafés.

For commuters, Crossharbour DLR station is just a three-minute walk away, providing a three stop service to Canary Wharf. From there, the Jubilee Tube line offers direct journeys across the capital to Stratford and Bond Street. 2018 will see Canary Wharf become home to Crossrail, linking Essex and Kent to Buckinghamshire and Berkshire with direct train services across London.
