As we have said on numerous occasions, we do love an industrial conversion, something like this Dransfield Owen De Silva-designed warehouse conversion in London SE16.
The building dates back to 1860, but was obviously converted much later, courtesy of award winning architects Dransfield Owen De Silva.
The selling points here are obviously the space, but also the conversion itself, which does a great job of offering modern-day, loft-style living space with some heritage from the building’s former life. The building hasn’t simply been gutted and converted into a house, it has evolved into living space using the detailing from its industrial past.
Love the open space, the doorways, the exposed brickwork, the corner fireplace and the beams. They make this place interesting, which isn’t always the case when converting these old buildings.
Plenty of room to spread out too. The ground floor entrance leads into a hall, which takes you to a large kitchen and dining area, plus a WC with shower. Timber tread spiral stairs lead up to the first floor with a large bedroom and a further room currently used as a studio, but could be reworked into a further two bedrooms.
The second floor has two large bedrooms and a third smaller bedroom. Head up to the top floor and that certainly will not disappoint – a 26 ft. square reception room for hanging out or entertaining. Oh yes, there’s also an external staircase taking you ro 420 sq. ft. roof terrace with what are described as ‘panoramic views’ stretching from Canary Wharf to The London Eye.
Lots of space, lots of character But you will need to find around £1,250,000 to secure it.
