Cromwell London, SW5


A stunning example of a period conversion. This one bedroom apartment location is completely individual in it’s style, and filled with interesting decorations.

The entrance hall is wallpapered in faux bamboo, and the floor is hand painted. Substantial and elaborate double doors provide access to the reception rooms.

The main sitting room is of grand proportions, with a huge ceiling height. Lit with natural light from the almost full height north facing bay window. The oak parquet floor has been glazed in white, and the wall panel detail is hand painted. The two large podiums provide a home to audio equipment and a drinks cabinet. The fire surround is genuine marble, however the large panel which surrounds it is painted to match the real thing.

Open to the sitting room and separated only by a decorative archway is the dining room / library. The walls are covered in a beautiful teal blue grasscloth, inspired by the stole in the Douglas Anderson portrait hanging over the dresser. A large octagonal dining table takes centre stage. Trellis panels hide a myriad of books.

There is one bedroom in this home. The floorspace in this room is adequate for it’s purpose, but it is the ceiling height which provides the drama. The owner has designed an extravagant over bed canopy inspired by a 1960’s sketch by Cecil Beaton. There is an en-suite bathroom and a further house bathroom.

There is no parking at this location, however spaces can be found in surrounding streets on pay and display meters.
