Vast Artist’s Loft - Webber Street, London, SE1
Guide Price £1,895,000
An inspiring refurbishment of a former photographic studio, this vast artist’s loft sits in the heart of Borough, just moments from the buzz of The Southbank and Borough Market.
The creative vibe hits you as soon as you enter the loft, accessed via its industrial external staircase. The volume, coupled with amazing space and natural light, is really quite jaw-dropping. What makes this loft so great is that the design team at Material and the loft’s creative owners have managed to do what many others have failed to do with live/work spaces and that is to marry the two together seamlessly. It really does feel like a home that you want to work from and vice-versa.
The dramatic main living room incorporates a large open-plan kitchen, triple height ceilings and huge skylights. A crisp, white finish and wooden flooring adds to the modern, ‘lofty’ atmosphere. The apartment excels in the areas that are harder to reconfigure and the owners have cleverly created a beautiful and bright studio and self-contained office out of previously wasted space.
Also at this level there is a guest bedroom and bathroom, which are located well away from the loft’s master bedroom area!
The main bedroom itself is accessed via a beautiful, bespoke staircase and like all proper lofts, it is self-indulgent in terms of space and light.
A clever little opening from here provides access to the roof terrace, which is just pure Borough. A proper, urban roof space by the railway lines and a suntrap giving rooftop views across this vibrant neighbourhood.
This rarely available loft apartment is part of Rushworth Studios, a small mixed-use warehouse conversion just a few minutes away from Southwark and Borough underground stations. It is amazingly private and yet ridiculously central! It benefits from great security and a secure, off-street parking space.
In our opinion, this wonderful loft encapsulates this style of creative living, where a home and work environment combine so well without affecting each other and in our experience an almost unrepeatable opportunity at this price level in such a great location.
