No, the OTHER Thamesmead (1 of 2)

I have Google alerts set up to tell me when there’s anything new happening in Thamesmead according to the big wide world of the web.

Amongst the rest there are all kinds of little snippets of interest, but one of the oddest is the regular real estate updates.

It seems property in Thamesmead Court is often available, and surprisingly, in this case it’s a house that actually mirrors houses in our own Thamesmead quite closely in style. There’s a three floor, tall and thin profile to the house, a combined kitchen and diner, and three bedrooms, with proportions roughly matching those over here – unusual for America as I understand it.

You have to wonder what inspired the name, it’s doubtful that most residents of the area have ever even seen the Thames.
