Rare Project Gallery Lofts - Hopton Street, London, SE1
Guide Price £1,575,000
Once every few years the opportunity arises to refurbish one of these genuine double height Gallery Lofts opposite St. Paul’s and Tate Modern.
Perhaps one of this author’s favourite spaces in the entire Bankside and Gallery Lofts complex, this is currently an underperforming floor plate that offers so much scope to a discerning Southbank resident to create a personal loft apartment with sensational views and a large roof terrace.
It is on the 5th floor in this building that the action really starts! The views become mesmerizing but more importantly the ceiling height gets serious, which only a visit to the property can properly reveal. The building is one of the friendliest in London for accepting the renovation and reworking of the apartments, making it a dream scenario for designers and self-builders, or simply those that want something unique in a great part of town.
Currently the layout provides for the most self-indulgent studio you could possibly imagine and the fixtures and fittings date back to the late 1990s but the aforementioned ceiling height will allow for a massive increase in the floor area and to easily provide two bedrooms, one with amazing views and the other with access to the large south facing roof terrace, with its far reaching views over South London.
Gallery Lofts is the slightly more discreet building that forms part of Bankside Lofts, the iconic Manhattan Lofts Corps development that changed the way people lived around The City in the 1990s. The entire development was sold a ‘shell’ apartments with the design and build ethic still very much a part of the building today. There is 24 hour security, a large resident’s garden, NYC style gymnasium and secured underground parking.
This is a super rare opportunity to be a part of this unique building’s design heritage and enjoy its glorious situation in the heart of The Southbank.
