Striking two-bedroom contemporary home, complete with an impressive second reception room currently used as an artist’s studio space, nestled in the heart of SW11.
A space as unique as this is a rare find. It was converted from an old Victorian warehouse by architects Dingle Price 5 years ago, who had the idea of inserting a house into the existing studio.
Through a humble entrance and a small cloakroom, you are presented with a huge open room bathed in natural light from all angles.
The double height ceilings and colossal floor-space on offer are at present used as a studio space, but can be used as the main reception room. There is also a large walled storage area, used for canvas storage, but can double up as a wine cellar.
Sliding walls, built into the fabric of the property, easily sub-divide the two receptions, to provide a sense of separation between work and home.
An open-plan kitchen-reception is situated to the rear of the house, complete with fully integrated appliances, including a full size fridge-freezer, dishwasher, washer/dryer, electric fan oven with overhead extractor and gas hob. There is also ample storage for all your kitchen essentials.
The dining / living space flows naturally away from the kitchen, and can be oriented to suit anyone’s living arrangements. Adjacent to the kitchen, neatly tucked away is the downstairs bathroom fitted with a shower, W/C, wash basin and heated towel rail.
There is also access to a pretty walled courtyard garden, affording a great flow of natural air from two patio doors.
Upstairs, we have two large double bedrooms, set on a mezzanine level stretching into the vast eaves of the warehouse.
Both bedrooms are of equal size, and have cleverly crafted Velux windows set into the roofline, throwing in an abundance of light.
Views are also afforded of the vast studio space below through hatch style windows sunk into the walls of each bedroom.
The master bathroom, located just across the hall, comprises a large stand-alone bath tub, W/C, and separate sink.
A deep hallway cupboard provides ample storage for any large or bulky items that need to be hidden away. Equally, there is a similar size cupboard downstairs.
The property is fully residential, but provides the opportunity for a work from home studio.
Situated on the cusp of Battersea old town, the area is ever-changing and recently the subject of a lot of attention, given the transformation of Battersea Power Station and the rapid refurbishment of the surrounding riverfront.
On your doorstep is St. Johns Hill, a fantastic high street packed with coffee houses, bars, restaurants. Particular highlights are the Powder Keg Diplomacy, a great colonial inspired eatery, and The Schoolhouse, perfect for Sunday brunch.
Battersea Old Town, situated around Clapham Junction, is only a short stroll away and has a plethora of bars and restaurants, and large Asda and Waitrose superstores. Northcote Road, a renowned classic shopping street features a butchers & fishmongers, is also very close by.
Transport is at a premium, with Clapham Junction connecting to Waterloo and Victoria stations in under 10 minutes, direct trains to the rest of the South-West, and linking up with the Overground with trains to West London.
