Alex Neil are Estate Agents in Canada Water, we were established in 1984 and have been successfully providing residential sales and lettings services across the region.
Canada Water is in Rotherhithe which forms part of the Docklands, South East of London. Named because ships used to arrive from Canada, the area is mainly residential and is formed around the only fresh water lake in London.
The area is full of maritime history with the Mayflower starting its quest to America from Rotherhithe in 1620, and the creation of the first under river tunnel in the world running from Rotherhithe to Wapping.
Much of the area is now going through a phase of rapid development to create a new urban centre. Up to 3,500 new homes will be delivered which will offer affordable homes, a range of housing types, tenures, sizes and price points. There will also be significant new public space for play, events and external dining, and you can already find Surrey Quays shopping centre five minutes away.
to and from Canada Water is relatively easy, being on the Jubilee Line (Zone 2) provides a quick route to Stratford, Canary Wharf, Westminster and Bond Street. There is also access to the overground network, bus routes, boats, and London City Airport which is around 20 minutes by car.
There are many schools
including primary and secondary, special schools, religious schools and grammar schools. Ofsted ratings have been generally positive with many schools attaining ‘good’ and ‘outstanding’ scores.
With exciting new development and easy transport links, Canada Water is a highly sought place to live. If you’re looking to find out the value of your home, to purchase, to sell or to rent a property then our highly motivated teams would love to help.
