If you love art deco and factory conversions, you might like the look of this two-bedroom apartment in the art deco Wallis Building, St John’s Wood, London NW8.
Yes, it’s a conversion of an art-deco-style factory designed by Wallis, Gilbert and Partners in the 1930s and now very much living space throughout – and certainly not cheap. An indication of just how much prices have jumped in this area / building is the last selling price – £395,000 back in 2006. The building was converted in 2000 by the way.
Anyway, that’s past history, the two-bedroom apartment is now for sale for a much higher price in the present. It’s an attractive place too, offering the original factory lighting, large Crittall windows, authentic ceiling, exposed beams and the kind of height you would expect from old factory space.
Space is fairly straightforward, with those two bedrooms and an open plan living area incorporating the kitchen space. Finishes are said to be ‘high quality’, including American-oak flooring across all the flat.
That price? £1,100,000.
