Agent’s wording:Considered to be London's ultimate example of warehouse loft living, this staggering penthouse is offered for sale for the first time in a generation.
Arranged over the 5th, 6th & 7th floors of this converted Victorian tea warehouse, the expansive, double-height living space is approached via a beautiful 'gallery' space. Immediately The River Thames comes into view and the living area, being south facing, flooded with light. There are several entertaining areas on this level, however without any internal walls spoiling the open-plan nature of the apartment. A small balcony overlooks the river.
A second bedroom, again with river views, is located off the living area, with its own shower room and office space.
A lovely, bright mezzanine studio area has been created, with huge, south facing skylights. This would also make a wonderful riverside office or study space.
A bespoke metal staircase leads to the galleried master bedroom, which again does not conform to the conventional, being without any partition walls but offering the most incredible views of the river towards Tower Bridge and The Shard from the bed, shower and sunken bath.
The staircase continues to the top floor, with a glass Summer living room leading onto the ROOF TERRACE, with panoramic views of the river and London skyline.
Whilst the current owner has been uncompromising in creating the ultimate open-plan loft apartment, there is much scope here for any purchaser to create a more conventional home, with plenty of space for extra bedrooms and for more privacy. There is so much in the way of original brickwork and simply stunning exposed beams, that the warehouse character would remain.
Please note that this apartment is being sold with a space on the lower ground floor of the building that is currently used as a small artist's studio but could also be an excellent storage area.
Oliver's Wharf is perhaps London's first and best warehouse conversion and sits on the historic, cobbled streets of Wapping. There is a resident caretaker, secured parking and beautiful communal areas.
Featured in countless design and loft books, this space helped to redefine how we live in London, with a shift in emphasis to an uncompromising, open-plan layout in urban areas East of The City. It is simply London's finest and most historic loft apartment.
