Rare Live Work Warehouse - Choumert Mews, London, SE15
Guide Price £1,100,000
A genuinely rare opportunity to buy one of the sought after live work warehouses in Choumert Mews, just moments from Bellenden Road and Peckham Rye.
The mews – a little community in itself – is tucked away behind Choumert Road, making it exceptionally quiet and private for those looking to live and work from home. Developed in 2000, the original buildings in the mews date back to the thirties/forties. This particular warehouse offers 1375 square feet of character and flexibility for the live/worker.
The property is currently arranged with generous work space to the ground floor (plus kitchen and w.c.), and a self-contained one bedroom loft apartment to the first floor. The building is wonderfully bright owing to its south-facing orientation and huge windows and doors (two wonderful warehouse windows on the first floor are 5ft by 5ft, for example).
There are two entrances to the front of the building: one to a lobby area (straight up to the flat or a right into the work area) and the other directly into the work space. The main work area is 21 feet by 19 feet and beyond this is an additional work space of over 25 feet by nearly 9, lit via skylight windows and glass brick detail to one wall. Also on this floor is a neat, modern fitted kitchen, plus a storage area and w.c.
The first floor is just a super loft apartment! It has been recently refurbished and is finished with great attention to detail, including lots of well-planned storage and clever practical and design decisions, including the open shelves, fitted blinds, shadow gaps and plentiful wall and ceiling lighting. The huge open-plan kitchen/reception space is over 25 feet by over 14, and the ceiling peaks at 14 feet at the top of the ‘A’ frame. There are two huge warehouse windows plus painted timber French doors with Juliet balcony in the centre, to south-facing views over the mews. The kitchen is a slick and modern, with integrated fridge and freezer, ceramic sink, gas hob, electric oven, and a large breakfast bar that is equally excellent for serving food and drinks to guests. Under-floor heating is installed for maximum comfort. Off the main living space is a double bedroom of over 12 feet by nearly 9, and a ‘beach hut’ bathroom with contemporary white sanitary ware and high-quality fittings. There is excellent storage throughout.
A genuinely special location: tucked away and private, yet so central and connected. Peckham Rye Station with Overground and regular services is just a three minute walk. Buses are easily grabbed too, on nearby Rye Lane, where you’ll also find banks and handy high street shopping, as well as Peckham Plex Cinema and a growing number of very cool hotspots, including our favourite Peckham Levels and Taco Queen. Ever present local pubs close by are The Montpelier and The Victoria. Choumert Road and Bellenden Road with their cafes, bars and independent shops are steps away, including Petitou, Anderson’s and Small White Elephant. Miss Tapas, Artusi, Ganapati and The Begging Bowl are all nearby for classic Peckham dining. Blenheim Grove is also close for Il Giardino, The Peckham Refreshment Rooms, The Coal Rooms and Honest Burger among others.
