Named after the lime kilns that once fired clay on the banks of the river Thames, Limehouse is now one of east-London’s most popular residential areas.
Riding the wave of rejuvenation fuelled by the influx of developers into Canary Wharf and the Isle of dogs, Limehouse is one of many areas in east London that has seen property and rental values soar in recent years.
Further boosted by the London 2012 Olympics, this riverside region was considered “up and coming” as little as five years ago – its safe to say that Limehouse has now arrived, having become a favourite for workers both in the city and Canary Wharf business district.
The influx of gastropub culture and a series of recent residential developments has resulted in a boost to the local enomomy and with a wealth of transport links providing residents with easy access to the centre of London, those looking to buy or rent in E14 are finding more and more reasons to choose Limehouse.
King Edward VII memorial park provides a welcome area of greenery in this predominantly post-industrial region, whilst the Limehouse Basin Marina, fronted by Gordon Ramsey’s The Narrow offers waterside living and stunning views over the river Thames.
With Canary Wharf to the east and Bow to the west, there is a wealth of things to see and do in the area and by utilising the afore mentioned transport links, residents have London on their doorstep.
Limehouse Station serves both the DLR and National Rail, Bank is less than 10 minutes commute to the west, whilst the bustling Canary Wharf business district is 5 minutes in the other direction. City Airport is also easily accessible for those frequent flyers. West London, via the district line from Bank, is also well within reach.
