A very cool live-work apartment spanning two floors in a recently renovated hop warehouse located in between London Bridge and Borough.
One of just two apartments in this recently
renovated hop warehouse. The interior has
been beautifully crafted and comprises all the
features associated with a warehouse
conversion; exposed brick walls, beamed
ceilings and original timber floors.
The apartment is arranged over the ground and
lower-ground floors with a galleried living area which is bathed in great natural light from a large east-facing window. It is best used as a two bedroom apartment with a bedroom on each floor but the upper gallery has a sofa bed and can be used as a place for guests.
A steel and timber staircase descends
to the lower level past a feature wall which has
inset LED lighting. The kitchen, wardrobes and stairs are all bespoke hand built with original joists and stairs reclaimed from the building during conversion giving a beautifully consistent flow of natural and raw materials throughout. The specification is nicely finished off by designer "Buster and Punch" light switches.
(Note: The apartment is classed as live-work which means that council tax is payable on the majority of the floor space and business rates payable on the lower bedroom. The apartment does not have to be used as a live-work space and can be used as just a home. Exact costs TBC.)
