Butlers Wharf Building - Shad Thames, London, SE1
Guide Price £1,425,000
Located on the 6th floor and facing south across the roof tops of Shad Thames, a fantastic opportunity to buy a large two bedroom apartment in the iconic Butlers Wharf Building.
The apartment is currently very well laid out, with a good feeling of lateral space and large rooms. After a good sized entrance hall, there is a really spacious double aspect living room, with large original door openings and Juliette balconies, exposed brickwork and ample space for a dining table. Being south facing, this is an exceptionally bright living space (rare for this period of warehouse) and a peak out of the east window provides a glimpse of the river just 50m away.
Off the living room lies the semi open-plan kitchen and for those interested in the design history of Butlers Wharf, still fitted out to the original Terence Conran specification of the 1980s. Again, a large east facing window provides the aforementioned view.
The two bedrooms are genuine big doubles with fitted wardrobes and the master bedroom being an excellent size and having a private bathroom and separate WC (original Conran spec!). Off the entrance hall there is a guest bathroom and a lot of storage options.
This is classic Butlers Wharf Building and Shad Thames living and should be of interest to those looking to update a piece of warehouse living history, either to create the perfect London base, or an excellent rental investment. London Lofts have been lucky enough to be the rental agent for this flat and it never fails to find a great tenant.
The building comes with 24h porter and secured underground parking.
The building itself needs no introduction, as it lies at the heart of on one of London’s most historic and beautiful streets, in the shadow of Tower Bridge itself and obviously moments from The River Thames. There are multiple famed dining options, including Le Pont de la Tour and The Chop House within the building and the streets nearby, as well as along the riverside walk. For epic coffee and deli, look no further than The Watch House opposite.
This famous old cobbled street of Shad Thames is walking distance to The City, City Hall, Tower Hill and London Bridge, as well Borough Market and The Shard.
