Ultimate Urban Apartment - Lawn Lane, London, SW8
Guide Price £7,950,000
Truly an urban apartment for our times, this sensational, completely bespoke property is the result of a no expense spared gut renovation of the the entire top two floors of a late Victorian warehouse, located in the emerging Embassy and Nine Elms Quarter.
Take one massive shell space and a client with exacting standards and the result is quite astonishing; the type of apartment that London creates once a generation.
Weighing in at just under 4000 sqft and with cathedral like ceilings, this is urban luxury redefined. Acres of polished concrete flooring, personally tailored metalwork and a post-industrial design ethic are both timeless and so on point. Every square inch of this apartment oozes quality workmanship behind the flair and imagination.
The main living room is perhaps one of the finest that this agent has ever seen. Dramatic and industrial but instantly warm and homely, this space works on so many levels, be it purely for entertaining on a grand scale, or as a remarkably cool family area. Completely open-plan but with so much room for a laid back TV snug, huge dining area and incredible ‘show’ kitchen. A second catering kitchen, larder and store room are hidden behind the stunning slatted wall design.
Huge arched windows overlook leafy Vauxhall Park and crittal french doors lead onto a large, private terrace.
The apartment offers a clever arrangement of four double bedrooms, all with private bathrooms and all with access to their own roof terraces. Bedroom four on the lower level would make a brilliant home office space away from the main bulk of the living areas, extremely useful in the current climate. The main bedroom is self contained and offers a magnificent bathroom with steam room/shower, two dressing rooms and a massive private roof terrace offering views towards The Shard and City skyline.
The apartment is accessed via a private lift – again an important safety requirement in the current climate – and comes with three secured parking spaces and front desk security.
Embassy Works is quietly located opposite Vauxhall Park on the edge of the fast emerging Nine Elms and Embassy Quarter. Vauxhall Station is less than three minutes away on foot and gives fast access into Mayfair, The West End and St. Pancras International.
The US Embassy and Battersea Power Station are within 10 minutes on foot and will soon be accessed via a specially designed ‘green space’ walkway. The area continues to evolve with buildings designed by Verace and Zaha Hadid coming out of the ground, sitting alongside the old world charm of Bonnington Square and The River Thames.
A remarkable slice of heritage London for the discerning global buyer.
