THIS BEAUTIFUL partnership of housing and water calms the soul and must be peaceful to live in. The homes, reflected in the water, create an air of symmetry and order.
The water is a short outlet from Blackwall Basin that runs towards Prestons Road. From here, there’s just one tower block in the background to remind you that Canary Wharf is just a stone’s throw away.
It’s sad it’s always the homes for sale that are built to this standard, with homes for social rent squashed together at the back of developments or in the corner where there isn’t a view… It’s sad – but no accident.
