Property Description

Where is Explorers Wharf located?

Explorers Wharf resides in Limehouse, a former dockland area in the London Borough of Tower Hamlets that has become a vibrant district with converted warehouses and modern towers, scattered along the River Thames. Placed between the City and Canary Wharf, Limehouse presents a calmer pace of living with a unique atmosphere, created by the waterways and authentic eateries.

Set right by Limehouse Cut, Explorers Wharf benefits from a beautiful collection of green spaces scattered nearby. Across the canal, Bartlett Park features stunning greenery, accompanied by a football pitch and charming footpaths, perfect for a tranquil stroll. Meanwhile, Mile End boasts an abundance of different facilities and amenities, including a play area, a charming lake, a wind turbine, an adventure park, a stadium, and an electric Go kart track, to name just a few.

Limehouse is easily accessible by various types of transport. Within walking distance, there are a couple of DLR, tube, and railway stations thanks to the close proximity to two major business districts of London. Additionally, the nearby Commercial Road connects the area to the City and also leads to London City Airport.

What does the exterior look like?

The 9-storey U-shaped building faces Limehouse Cut with its calm stream, thus the complex’s walls and the waterway shield the courtyard from the bustling streets. The charming façade sports light-coloured brickwork, ranging from sandy to grey tones. Explorers Wharf benefits from large floor-to-ceiling windows that endow the living areas with plenty of natural light. To take advantage of its beautiful canalside location, the building features lovely cantilevered balconies with dark metal railings, where residents can enjoy those wonderful views. The top two floors are inspired by the history of Limehouse and, therefore, resemble a warehouse-like exterior.

Are there amenities and facilities at Explorers Wharf?

Explorers Wharf is served by an on-site concierge, who offers a warm welcome to all visitors and lends a hand to residents when needed.

Taking advantage of London’s oldest canal running closeby, the new residential complex provides beautifully-landscaped walkways along Limehouse Cut to enjoy the tranquillity the waterway creates. Additionally, Explorers Wharf features stunning gardens with lush greenery that act as the focal point of the development, hidden away from prying eyes by the tall walls.

It is also worth noting that Explorers Wharf is a car-free development, and homeowners cannot apply for a Residents Parking Permit from the London Borough of Tower Hamlets.
