1 Bedroom Flat (Now Let)
Butlers Wharf West, Shad Thames
At 1000sqft this is a large 1 bed apartment, larger than many 2 beds. Perfect for a couple or for a single, plenty of space and storage.
The owner sought to extract the most utility possible out of the space. Rather than having a spare bedroom that is only occasionally used, it is instead possible to make use of that extra living space on a continual daily basis with the 40 foot living area.
A large couch made to measure for the space can fold out into a high quality comfortable double bed for those occasions when visitors stay over.
Extra wide oak floorboards running the length of this extensive 6 window south facing living room and a large
7.1 surround sound in living room for TV, these speakers can also be used wirelessly for itunes on your phone for example. Bedroom and bathroom also wired up. AV all on one easy to use remote control. Building has satellite TV.
Desk/study area built into a nook in the living space around one of the exposed beams - fits with the space beautifully and has built in filing space and book case.
Bedroom has ample storage with walk-in style walnut wardrobe setup, old warehouse-style large picture window and exposed brickwork.
Ensuite bathroom is another large space - walk in shower with pre programmable temperature levels adjustable digitally, separate large bath area, bathroom decked out unusually and stylishly in wood, built in wall speakers.
Remote control dimmable lighting throughout, many different preset lighting scenes - tremendously versatile, almost all dimmable. Offers a wide array of moods with many different types of lighting - including a large dimmable backlit TV panel, in wall lighting at low level in the entrance hall, higher ceiling recess lit separately, built in lighting in the wardrobe area, a whole wall in the bedroom lit by a glass covered panel running the length of the wall, LED lighting above kitchen units.
Many original features, as you'd expect in this well known London landmark for warehouse living. All the old oak supporting beams and pillars are there, and the living area has been aligned with this such that the exposed beams are running the entire length of the kitchen/living area, woven between being partially in the wall/ceiling join and fully exposed. There is exposed brickwork in the kitchen, bedroom and living room. There was an old large exposed brick arch that has been restored and whitewashed to house the large TV panel.
Second guest bathroom. Small separate laundry room with washing machine and good storage.
Overall a great example of new and old mixing together and exactly what you would want from warehouse living.
The address speaks for itself. Butlers Wharf is synonymous with warehouse style living. Perfect location - 3 tube stations within 10 minute walk. Super easy and quick access to either the City or Canary Wharf. Shad Thames is a unique historic cobbled street of former old warehouses with lots of characterful museums, restaurants, cafes, a literal stones throw from the river and Tower Bridge. Bermondsey street is a 5 minute walk, a buzzing arty scene with great bars and restaurants. Borough Market and the lesser known but more fun and Maltby Street market are both round the corner. A walk along the river on the fantastic Southbank and in 45 minutes you will be in Covent Garden.
Available furnished or unfurnished, ideally long lease but shorter negotiable.
