A conversion done well, courtesy of this apartment in the former Guinness bottling factory in Rugby, Warwickshire.
Yes, once a place where Guinness was bottled, but more recently a rather stylish living space, thanks to a rework by a local architectural designer for his own occupation.
A substantial apartment too. This is a three-bedroom loft conversion covering something like 2,067 sq. ft. of indoor accommodation, with the added bonus of around 1,400 sq. ft. of roof terrace to play with, not to mention a garage tpp. All of that on what’s described as a ‘discreet cul-de-sac’.
Not that space matters if it doesn’t work. But in this case it does, helped along with some rather nice vintage touches from the original factory. That includes a hoist, a working winch, the original warehouse doors and metal windows plus sandblasted brickwork. Keeping the character in these types of conversions really is so important.
The floorspace is described as ‘flexible’, but currently the place has a ground floor entrance lobby with bike storage area and access to the garage, while a staircase takes you to the more eventful first floor.
Most of that is given over to a large open-plan space with wooden flooring, underfloor heating, an exposed brick feature wall and a glass brick feature wall. There are lounge and dining areas here, as well as a Juliet balcony with French doors to front.
Also on this floor is a study area, a fitted kitchen (complete with all you would expect of that), the first bedroom with in-built Sauna Unit and air conditioning, a second double bedroom with feature glass brick wall and air conditioning plus a third bedroom, as with air conditioning. The bathroom and a boiler / storage room finishes things off.
As we mentioned, there’s also an impressive roof terrace with views across Rugby and down below, a garage with power and lighting.
Lovely place and currently looking for a new owner, If that’s you, the asking price is £345,000.
