SE1 is a fantastic and vibrant area of London. It's a great place to live. The area offers far more opportunities around flats and apartments than houses. Property for sale in SE1 often comes described as apartments but range from a studio to a three floor triplex live work unit. There is a distinct local emphasis on design and the fantastic views are not wasted. If you’re looking to rent in SE1, you will not be disappointed in the choice that is available.
The flats in SE1 rely heavily on clever design to give them a spacious and airy feel. There are plenty of former riverside warehouse units converted into homes nestling alongside new developments, and you can sometimes find they offer either huge industrial or new build floor to ceiling windows. As well as focusing on the amount of natural light, designers have often incorporated clever open plan designs to maximise space.
