Outstanding Creative Loft - Penarth Street, London, SE15
Guide Price £1,195,000
An unbelievable find and a truly exciting opportunity to own a vast creative loft apartment arranged over two floors of a mixed-use converted warehouse on the border of Peckham and Bermondsey.
Originally bought as a pair of light-industrial units, this now fully residential loft has been transformed by the current architect owner into a significant new arrival on the Bermondsey/Peckham loft scene.
With in excess of 2500 sqft and a bright, contemporary refurbishment design, this loft integrates seamlessly into the post-industrial heritage of the building it inhabits. Acres of concrete flooring, vast crittal windows, exposed metallic trunking and a functional minimalism all add up to a loft aesthetic for this moment in time.
The layout is as it should be and totally flexible. The ground floor is almost completely open-plan, suiting those that choose sheer space as their luxury of choice. It is the main hub of the apartment, with masses of living and entertaining space, as well as the kitchen and dining area. It would also make a fantastic home studio for a creative photographer, artist or even private event space.
The first floor is again vast and flexible, depending on one’s needs. Currently it houses four bedrooms, a shower room (for bathers, there is a bathroom downstairs) and a large home office/studio space, with four large skylights, perfect for a ‘work at home’ architect or draughtsman.
This fabulous loft is to be found in The Penarth Centre, an artistic warehouse community, hosting gallery and studio openings in a mainly light-industrial area, which itself is getting more residential and gentrified, with new homes – many already under construction – changing the landscape. This is spearheaded by the £10 billion Old Kent Road Action Plan. Another example is New Bermondsey: a large development which will provide new shops, restaurants and 2,400 homes.
Located in Zone 2, the closest stations currently are South Bermondsey (walk 7 minutes – and from here you are just one stop/5 minutes from London Bridge on a direct service) and Queens Road Peckham station (walk 17 minutes – QRP is on the Overground line).
Jump in an Uber and in 5 minutes you are either on Bermondsey Street or in central Peckham, both now considered world class destinations for lovers of great food and a bang on trend nightlife.
Note: Planning permission for two roof lights and a roof lantern with roof access has recently been granted. The roof lantern is of a split-level design and would provide an extra 80 square feet of floor area above the existing bathroom and w.c. It would have excellent views and make a great study room. Please ask us for further information.
