Double Height Loft - Battersea High Street, London, SW11
Guide Price £1,325,000
On the first floor of the landmark Old Library conversion in Battersea, a stunning double height loft apartment.
Entered via the well preserved communal hallway, with its original brick tiles still in place, this loft immediately opens out into a glorious double height living room, with a modern kitchen to the rear and huge period windows to the front. French doors lead onto a great wrought iron balcony, with its views over the communal gardens. There is wood flooring and a sense calm, spacious living pervades throughout.
Off the entrance hall lies the guest bedroom and a large guest shower room.
The mezzanine level provides a very useful study area, overlooking the living room and then the master bedroom and bathroom, with its roll-top bath. The entire mezzanine area could be reconfigured to one’s own requirements, including a really generous master bedroom suite.
Unlike many lofts, this apartment really does offer practical bedrooms for those that like this style of living but struggle with the concept of open-plan bedrooms. It is rare to find at this price level.
Converted from ‘shell’ spaces in the 1990’s, The Old Library is one of the more classy and understated loft buildings of its kind, with only 9 very individual apartments and beautifully maintained communal gardens. There is excellent security and off-street parking.
The building is located just moments from Battersea Square, with its old world cobbles, cafes and excellent restaurants. The River Thames walkway is nearby, taking you to Battersea Bridge and then Chelsea on the other side. The excellent Thomas’s School is a short walk away. Transport links can be found at Clapham Junction and for car users, the A3 is closeby.
