Always had a thing about industrial conversions, the mix of old and new, not to mention the high ceilings they tend to offer. Which is why we are flagging up this one-bedroom factory conversion apartment in Plympton Street, London NW8.
It’s a first-floor unit in the former industrial space of the Plympton Street Apartments, converted in the mid-1990s by Czech architect Eva Jiricna, who had previously worked with Richard Rogers before setting out on her own.
She has certainly done an impressive job on this place, which maintains the facade of the old factory (including the windows), but offers very cool contemporary living space within. That includes a 30ft reception room that runs from one end of the flat to the other, a built-in kitchen, dining area, a ‘semi-open-plan’ study area, with a door to the terrace (that terrace is shared by the way), a double bedroom, dressing area and wet room.
All of that is a stone’s throw from Alfie’s Antique Market, so handy for picking up a few bits and pieces for the place too. £695,000 is the asking price.
