Prime Bermondsey Street - Bermondsey Street, London, SE1
Guide Price £1,950,000
One of the best located lofts you will find, is this genuine top floor warehouse classic on prime Bermondsey Street, in one of London’s most iconic warehouse districts.
Like all proper lofts, an unassuming front door and the original wooden staircase takes you to the top floor of this converted Victorian cork warehouse, where the industrial heritage of the building hits you immediately. Masses of beautiful exposed wooden beams and brickwork dominate the main living space, in which the current owner has managed to marry minimal, neutral design with the amazing rawness of the warehouse to create a warm and relaxing place to be.
The living space spans the whole building. West facing double loading-bay doors (with original hoist system still place) open out onto White Cube Gallery opposite and offers great rooftop views of Bermondsey Street towards The Shard in the distance. The East facing private roof terrace looks out pleasingly over a courtyard of period warehouses to the rear of the building – classic Bermondsey!
A cleverly positioned kitchen area is large, super modern and fits seamlessly into the lower section of the roof line. Possibly one of the best examples of an open-plan kitchen we have seen in a while. Importantly, there is a huge amount of storage space.
The guest area is discreetly accessed via a sliding door and has its own shower room.
The mezzanine level is accessed via a sleek spiral staircase and is used entirely as the master bedroom, with walk-in wardrobe and large bathroom.
Of interest to those looking to create even more space out of the loft, historic conversations with Southwark Planning have indicated that a further 300 sqft of internal space could be created by extending out to the rear, with the possibility of creating a second, larger roof terrace as well.
The position of this great loft really speaks for itself and we feel it offers a superb and rare opportunity for the discerning loft buyer to live on one of London’s most classy urban streets. The neighbourhood has been transformed into a cool destination hotspot, with brilliant access to restaurants, bars, independent shops, delis and galleries, as well as more famous, established alternatives. Transport Links are some of the best in town, with London Bridge Station just moments away.
