Classic Peckham Loft - Asylum Road, London, SE15
Guide Price £785,000
Offering a very rare opportunity in this hugely sought after building, this large two bedroom Peckham loft is as authentic as they come.
Carlton Works was converted in 2002 to create an eclectic mix of living and working spaces and this fully residential two bedroom space sits on the first floor, the with exceptional ceiling height (3.75m in the living room) and huge, period crittall windows that make this building so sought after.
Accessed via lift, all the principal rooms are off the entrance hall, no corridors here. The loft appeal of this apartment is felt most obviously in the fantastic 26ft living room, with its reclaimed wood flooring and exposed industrial columns adding to the features mentioned above.
The kitchen is currently enclosed but could easily become open-plan to the living room, if required.
There are two double bedrooms with fitted wardrobes, with the master bedroom measuring a whopping 37ft in length. The bathroom is located in the hallway but again, one could create en-suites if required. There is also a very useful storage cupboard.
The apartment comes with a secured off-street parking space.
Carlton Works, a stunning former perfume factory dating back to the early 1900’s, is set back from the road behind metal gates, where Asylum Road meets The Old Kent Road, allowing for easy access to Bermondsey in one direction and Peckham the other way.
Queens Road Peckham Station is just 750m away and as well as offering superb access to Central and East London on the East London Line, is home to the ever popular crowd puller, The Blackbird Bakery. Also around the station you have newcomers Beer Rebellion and Meet District and of course pizza heaven at Mamma Dough. This little enclave seems to go from strength to strength, with interesting new openings popping up almost every week.
Leasehold: 125 years from 1st January 2002
