At Metro Village we like to do things differently. Our ethos is to think outside of the box, especially when it comes to our marketing strategy. Working closely with our clients and investors we often hold events to showcase our latest properties and new homes we are involved in.

Canada Water, SE16, London

Canada Water, a pocket of SE16 which sits between Rotherhithe and Surrey Quays underwent regeneration back in the mid 2000’s with the introduction of Maple Quays, still a very sought after development.

Fast forward nearly 10 years and Canada Water is about to go through round 2 of regeneration, firmly cementing its popularity and desirability.

The Prince Of Orange pub which once owned the address 118 Lower Road became flats in 1990’s. At Metro Village, we have always been interested by the properties that now stand where the pub once was. After recently selling one property we have been asked to market another, a fabulous one bedroom apartment, so we thought we would look into the history of the pub which once stood and give perspective buyers a little insight into what they are buying. 


The UK property market particularly London is still a highly desired area for overseas investors and this doesn’t appear to be slowing anytime soon.

The influence of the overseas investor coupled with a weak pound is allowing for a very healthy sales market in the City’s Capital. Sales of homes in London’s most exclusive areas to Chinese buyers have risen since the UK voted to leave the EU. With the British currency at a 30 year low and the Chinese housing market at a 25 year high its inevitable Asian investors will look here to invest.
