WARF LONDON, E1W

about

This London location apartment is positioned on the second floor of a Grade II-listed Victorian warehouse on the banks of the Thames at Wapping, and was originally used to house tea.

It is accessed off Wapping High Street, less than five minutes’ walk from Wapping Overground station.

The wharf building is an example of Victorian Gothic Revival aesthetics, formed of grand brick façades and large arched factory windows across five storeys, backing onto the Thames.

Internal accommodation extends to over 2,000 sq ft of lateral space with reclaimed solid-oak floorboards running underfoot.

To one side of the entrance, a guest bedroom is positioned with built-in wardrobes and an en-suite shower room. A utility room is located next to this room.

Opposite, the master bedroom suite is designed as a space, within a space – semi-circular inner-walls conceal the bedroom from the dressing area, which wraps the space with bespoke built-in wardrobes, and the en-suite bathroom.

The bathroom is also curved in its position, wrapping the bedroom, while concealing a free-standing bath, walk-in shower, twin sinks and a separate w/c.

The majority of the plan is given over to an open-plan kitchen, dining and living room, positioned in front of a row of three full-height factory windows with tree-top views of St John’s Churchyard.

The lofty sense of volume is accentuated by high ceilings and steel pillars.

An antique-mirror clad box houses a secret bar and EuroCave wine fridge and conceals, on the other side, a home study and office space.

Access to the apartment is via lift or staircase. Parking is metered and on the street in front of the building.
