Classic Bankside Lofts - Hopton Street, London, SE1
Guide Price £950,000
A classic Bankside Lofts apartment on the third floor, with its trademark floor to ceiling windows and epic ceiling height.
Bankside Lofts is a London loft icon, developed by The Manhattan Loft Corporation in the mid 1990s to ‘shell’ specification and then individually fitted out by a diverse, creative and City crowd thereafter. No loft is the same here and the building still has many residents living here from its initial release, providing a strong sense community and ownership around the place. It is a world away from the rather ‘identikit’ new developments that have sprung up around it!
This particular loft pretty much sums up the design ethic in the building, with the emphasis on a simple, uncluttered living style in a double volume space. It just shows that many have tried to copy this brief over the years but the originals are still the best.
There is 24hr security at the front desk of the building, a resident’s gym and fantastic communal roof terrace looking directly towards The Tate Modern next door. Also, a secured underground parking space.
The River Thames and its famed riverside walk is just moments away, linking Bankside Lofts with London Bridge Station and Borough Market in one direction and The Southbank Centre and Waterloo in the other. Blackfriars Station, which famously straddles the Thames, is just 100m from this apartment.
The area continues to develop and we see this an excellent opportunity to invest in one it’s best buildings.
Leasehold: 999 years from 1996
