Modern Bright Penthouse - Weller Street, London, SE1
Guide Price £999,000
Accessed via direct lift straight into the property, this very secret Borough penthouse offers an extremely bright and contemporary living space, a world away from the hustle and bustle of the city below.
The apartment sits on top of Weller Street Lofts, a converted Victorian bonded warehouse in the heart of fashionable Borough, one of London’s most sought after warehouse districts.
A personal code in the lift takes you to the fourth floor, where it opens out onto a landing and then into the apartment itself. The landing itself provides a decent bit of unofficial storage. Once in the hallway, the brightness of the apartment is immediate, with light coming from windows on all four sides of the building, as well as via skylights.
The main living space is a typically modern affair, with open-plan kitchen and breakfast bar in one corner and then ample space for dining and relaxation throughout. There is a small balcony that provides a really stunning and quite surprising view over Mint Street Gardens towards St. Paul’s Cathedral.
The south facing aspect of the living room is taken up by huge sliding glass doors, which flood the apartment with natural light and provide classic roof top views of The Borough and South London beyond. These lead out onto a 400 sqft L-shaped roof terrace, which is fully decked and with glass balustrades.
There are two double bedrooms, both with access onto the roof terrace, with the master bedroom having a private shower room and a view of The Shard from its section of terrace. There is also very smart contemporary guest bathroom.
Weller Street Lofts is a small, corner warehouse just moments from Borough tube station and The Southbank. It is a mixed-use scheme, centred around a tree-lined, cobbled courtyard, where residents mix with a couple of local, mainly design led, businesses. Around the corner you have a Great Suffolk Street, with its local cafes and fruit n veg shop and in the other direction Flat Iron Square, fast becoming a ‘go to’ destination. One has to mention the obvious presence of Borough Market and London Bridge Station just 5 to 10 minutes away on foot.
For those with cars, the apartment comes with a secured off-street space, located in a building nearby.
