Callis Yard is housed by the vibrant community of Woolwich, a rapidly-developing district in the London Borough of Greenwich.
Steeped in military history, Woolwich is known for housing the Royal Arsenal, a former arms manufacturing complex that now accommodates a wide array of modern pubs, cosy cafes, and food shops. Another popular destination is a farmers’ market in Artillery Square that offers produce, baked goods, and flowers.
Thanks to the nearby Woolwich Foot Tunnel, you can cross the River Thames in a few minutes and enjoy a tranquil walk amidst the lush greenery of Royal Victoria Gardens, a beautiful riverside park with a splash pool, a playground, and tennis courts.
Eight minutes away, Woolwich Arsenal station offers National Rail and Docklands Light Railway services that connect the neighbourhood to the city centre and London City Airport. Furthermore, the complex is placed within an 11-minute stroll of Woolwich Pier that offers a free ride across the river from the Woolwich Ferry and commuter services of the Thames Clipper.
Callis Yard consists of a high-rise apartment building and the old stable conversions that bring three charming townhouses.
The new-build stands out with its contemporary façade that features white and grey panelling with rare bronze details. The floor-to-ceiling windows are peppered throughout the building, letting plenty of natural light inside. The sleek structure is adorned with delicate glass balustrades and a rooftop terrace.
Shielded from the buzzing Woolwich High Street by the tower, the heritage building of the old stables displays sandy-coloured brickwork, charming windows with white frames, and two classic weathervanes on each end of the roof with a modern-style glazed section in between.
Designed in accordance with the latest interior trends, the main entrance lobby greets visitors with a media wall that displays local transport times, news, and weather, always keeping you updated. There is also a concierge, ready to be of assistance.
For those who love working out, Callis Yard provides a private gym, fitted with high-tech equipment. You can also take advantage of a landscaped terrace that offers astounding views towards Canary Wharf.
The complex also includes a secure cycle store, car parking spaces, and a Car Club.
Callis Yard offers a stunning collection of one-, two-, and three-bedroom apartments, coupled with 3 three-bedroom townhouses.
Each apartment enjoys a custom-designed kitchen with white Silestone worktops and matching upstands. For maximum convenience, all units come with top-notch integrated appliances that include a frameless ceramic glass hob, a stainless-steel electric oven, a microwave, a fridge/freezer, a dishwasher, and a wine cooler.
All bathrooms feature a Villeroy & Boch wall-mounted WC and a white bath with a tiled panel and a glazed shower screen. The baths are equipped with a shower set and a bath filler by Hansgrohe.
Optivo is the company responsible for the construction of Callis Yard. One of the leading housing providers in the country, Optivo was established in 2017 by the amalgamation of AmicusHorizon and Viridian. Although a relatively young company, Optivo benefits from the combined experience of the two housing associations that dates all the way back to the 1940s. The company has a diverse portfolio with projects such as Kingswood, Springfield View, Copperstone Mills, and Heathfield Square.
