A DESIGNER apartment in one of London's most exciting riverside developments: this is the fabulous prize in our autumn property promotion, and it could be yours. The home we are giving away is a onebedroom flat, worth an amazing [pound]250,000, in Greenwich Millennium Village, a showpiece housing scheme seconds from the Dome and served by a new Jubilee line station.

Since its launch two years ago the GMV housing scheme has been winning design awards and setting standards in ecofriendly community development. The site forms part of the regenerated Greenwich peninsula, which is close to Greenwich's historic town

centre and just across the river from Canary Wharf.

With the Dome's future assured, and the whole area spearheading Mayor Ken Livingstone's Thames Gateway initiative, GMV is not only an attractive place to live, it's a compelling investment opportunity.

The property will transform the lucky winner's life, giving them financial security and attractive lifestyle options. They can move into it, use it as a pied-terre or rent it out to create a nest egg.

The place to be GMV is about more than distinctive architecture in a green setting; it's an ambitious project that rises to the challenge of the new "urban living" agenda.

The original masterplan, drawn up by Richard Rogers Partnership, is taking shape. It is an integrated community of 1,400 homes, with a school, health and community centres, sports facilities, leisure outlets, restaurants and shops, plus 50 acres of landscaped open space.

It even has its own transport links. There is a mix of homes (terraced houses, apartments, penthouses, live/work units) built using advanced, offsite building methods. The aim is to hand the properties to buyers with no defects.

Because they have been designed along eco-friendly lines, the homes offer low bills and water savings as well as heating and lighting systems that use less energy than conventional housing.

Advanced technology and contemporary design were priorities for the developers, Countryside, and Taylor Woodrow. All the homes are wired to be compatible with computers and security and also have an intranet - a website with information on local events, transport and community issues.

Green credentials Karl Duggan and Fiona Heaney, both of whom are in their twenties and work in IT in the City, moved to GMV from Notting Hill where they were renting. They paid [pound]230,000 for a two-bedroom house. "Value for money was one reason [we moved]; the price we paid would have bought us a studio in Notting Hill," says Duggan.

"The village's green credentials were a big draw too. It's like having a huge back garden. On sunny days we go and sit by the lake or watch the activity on the river. …
