Character Southbank Loft - Clink Street, London, SE1
Guide Price £1,250,000
An exceptional opportunity is this Southbank loft, situated on the second floor of Clink Wharf, one of the original converted warehouses sitting on the River Thames at Borough Market.
The apartment is currently laid out as a glorious over-sized one bedroom loft at 1075 sqft but could easily be reinstated to its original two bedroom configuration, depending on the needs of the incoming buyer. Not having been listed on the market for over 20 years, this loft is essentially a great opportunity for someone to create a very personal loft apartment in one of the true icons of warehouse and urban living in London.
The front door opens straight into the massive lateral living space, with its woods flooring, open-plan kitchen area and industrial loading-bay doors which open onto a dockside balcony, offering partial views of the river.
Looking back to the rear of the loft, there is a dressing/storage room, guest bathroom and a second living area, which would also make an excellent home office, with loading-bay doors opening out and overlooking the cobblestones of bustling Clink Street below. The bedroom, with its fitted wardrobes and private shower room is also located to the rear of the apartment.
Clink Wharf is a true Borough original and houses some of the best and most authentic loft apartments in London. Original features have been retained wherever possible and the building also offers up a couple of surprises, such as the Japanese water garden and amazingly, the use of a shared resident’s boat on the in-house ‘Davit’ system! This loft apartment comes with a secured parking space and it never ceases to amaze those wondering past the building when one emerges from this hidden garage onto Clink Street; a bit of treat for car lovers!
Clink Street is a historic, mainly pedestrianized cobbled London street, located between Borough Market and the River Thames. It has a number of coffee shops and eateries of its own but is literally on the doorstep of the famous market, for virtually every culinary option available to humanity! London landmarks nearby include The Shard, The Globe Theatre and it is a short stroll along the river to The Tate Modern.
Transport links are fantastic, with London Bridge being 5 minutes away on foot and one can even walk to work in The City.
As specialists, we feel that this a truly rare opportunity to purchase a loft at this price level in such an amazing building and that this represents a true Southbank loft!
