We do love an industrial space, especially when it has been converted as well as The Old Bakery conversion in London SE22.
As you probably guessed, this was once a working bakery, but is now a two-floor living space. One that maintains some of the original features of the old building too, including the original white bakery tiles and metal framed windows.
Saying that, it doesn’t dwell too much on the past, with the building very much a distinctive, bright and contemporary living space, complete with its own courtyard garden.
Talking of space, there is in excess of 1,700 sq. ft. to play with, accessed via tall wooden gates leaden into that courtyard space. Beyond that, the internal layout includes a large entrance hall (used as a library and general living area right now) and a ground floor with a main bedroom, with attached dressing room, a second bedroom, WC and utility room.
Head upstairs and you’ll find a large reception room (taking up much of this floor) with light boosted by the roof glazing. Also here is a kitchen / breakfast room, a shower room with WC. Finally a second floor adds in a small storage room and rooftop views across to Canary Wharf and Tower Bridge.
Not enough space? Well, permission has been granted to add a third floor and ‘remodel the current interior’ to designs by architects Waugh Thistleton, which is good to know. Although reworking will obviously be an additional cost.
The cost right now, should you like this place, is £1,299,950.
