Finding the perfect place to live is always a toss-up between form and functionality. Fortunately, Docklands’ Baltimore Wharf offers both in spades.
Owning a home here is not just a case of acquiring a property, it’s also about joining The Club, a unique private members’ gym. Inside the complex, there is one of the most ambitious urban gym and leisure facilities ever created for a private residence. Blurring the line between socialising and exercising, The Club mixes state-of-the-art technology with edgy, cool design. If MTV designed a gym, this would be it (with marginally less bling, perhaps).
Alongside the 25-metre pool, cardio suite, boxing area, basketball court and training room, you’ll find a bar, movie screening room plus games area including interactive computer games, a competitive pool table, table football and table tennis.
And, if you just want to chill, there’s always Zen, the Club’s spa, featuring a relaxation lounge area, steam room, sauna, hydrotherapy suite and solarium. Best of all, the extensive leisure facilities are only made available to residents.
Located a short walk from the DLR platform at Crossharbour, Baltimore Wharf is just three quick stops away from Canary Wharf, or a leisurely ten minute stroll. Riverboat services give you quick access to the City, while City Airport is located 15 minutes from your doorstep.
The apartments themselves are characterised by bright, open spaces and offer state-of-the-art, fitted open-plan kitchens and large en-suite bathrooms.
Alongside the range of two- and three-room properties, limited duplex apartments are also available. These fantastic spaces all have waterfront views and designer Poggenpohl kitchens.
The only downside to living here, as far as we can tell, is you’ll probably never want to leave. Although, you certainly shouldn’t have too much difficulty getting your friends to come over to visit you.
