This apartment is a real gem. It has been completely refurbished to a high standard to create a modern, innovative interior with all amenities, that will sleep up to four guests comfortably.The short entrance hall leads on the right to a stylish, contemporary open plan lounge / dining area. A 'wall of glass' opening onto the charming balcony provides a wonderful light living space with romantic views of St. Katharine's dock and a fabulous London skyline beyond. Two bookcases house the owners' fascinating collection of books about London that you are welcome to browse. On the chimney breast is a 37 inch TV + DVD player above a modern flame-effect electric fire. Opposite, is a compact but fully equipped kitchen with gloss black units, blue recycled glass worktops, under-cabinet lighting, induction hob, integrated oven, microwave, dishwasher, and an American style fridge/freezer dispensing ice and filtered water. The overall effect is sleek and sophisticated.The master bedroom with its simple clean lines, king-sized bed, and sliding glass-doored wardrobe offers ample clothes storage and built-in vanity unit. The outlook over the dock with the Shard and Tower bridge beyond is completely traffic free - quiet enough to leave a window open at night.The second bed with its standard double bed and ample clothes and suitcase storage, is strikingly decorated with lovely London themed wallpaper and a mirrored wall adds a feeling of space. This bedroom can be set up as two singles or as a double. The 'one and a half' bathroom design has two completely separate hand basin / w.c units each with a private access to a central walk in shower. The finish - a mix of large mirrors with high quality glass and porcelain tiles, gives a luxury feel to this practical design that works well with four guests.This apartment is uniquely located - St. Katharine's is a spacious, pedestrianize area steeped in history. Quiet, yet remarkably central, you almost get two holidays for the price of one! - we think you will love the easy access to London's top attractions, and you will love returning home to the romantic charm of St. Katharine s at the end of the day. Many destinations are walk able from the doorstep. Go south over Tower Bridge (great views) to the 'South Bank Walk', a popular pedestrianised route from the Design Museum to the London Eye with major attractions along the way - HMS Belfast, The London Dungeons, The Shard (Europe's tallest building), The Golden Hind, Borough Market, Shakespeare's Globe, Tate Modern, The National Theatre and Royal Festival Hall, to name only a few. On the other bank, the Thames Walk brings Wapping with it's cobbled streets and ancient pubs - at least three claim to be the oldest Thames tavern - probably true as Dickens, Pepys, and Samual Johnson were all known patrons.Going north it's a five minute walk to 'Wiltons' - Europe's oldest surviving music hall and still entertaining; and then on to vibrant Brick Lane, Shoreditch and Spitalfields markets for some seriously funky shopping. And if you're tired? - there's always a Jack the Ripper pub for refreshment and a tale or two to tell.To go further afield; tube, taxi, bus, boat and bike stops are all really close with only a short ride to The West End, Covent Garden, Greenwich, The Dome, and the 2012 Olympic Park.Convenient tube stations are: Tower Hill (District and Circle lines) and Tower Gateway (DLR) - 8 minutes walk; Wapping (Overground) - 10 minutes; London Bridge (Northern and Jubilee) 15 minutes. The 100, 15 and RV1 busses are all useful routes, with nearby stops.
