With all of the thousands of new flats being built in London, it would seem as though there is little space left to develop - let alone to bag a home near a beach.
However, there is a corner of east London that has remained relatively under-developed despite the surrounding area seeing huge regeneration and having good transport links.
A new development at Royal Victoria Dock highlights how decades after the original flagship docklands regeneration, the city continues to push out to the east, with builders keen to entice potential residents with the prospect of waterside living.
And yes, there is a beach (of sorts) nearby.
Developers Mount Anvil are building 105 new flats on the land found on Western Gateway, in Royal Victoria Dock.
It is found out past Canary Wharf, by the ExCel exhibition centre and across the River Thames from the O2, in North Greenwich.
The development called Royal Docks West will include one, two and three-bedroom flats, including 26 affordable homes. There will also be a new shopping area and a public landscaped garden.

And the beach in question? That is Urban London Beach, at the Royal Docks, a stretch of sandy man-made beach overlooking the water, open in July and August. (Exact dates change every year, with the opening starting this year on July 17 and ending on August 31).
