- 3 Bedrooms
An exceptional and historic three bedroom duplex period apartment FOR SALE, SE1.
Built c. 1876, The Chandlery rests on Westminster Bridge Road, SE1. In 2006, this former Webber Street School went through major improvement works to convert it into luxury apartments and office spaces. Constructed of London stock bricks with red rubber detailing the building has maintained its historic character with features such as Dutch style gables, large timber frame windows and double height ceilings.
This duplex apartment set on the third floor of this character building has been refurbished to the highest of standards. The property is an impressive duplex that offers incredible versatility and a magnificent 1,688ft2, plus the benefit of private gated parking where only three properties come with parking. Upon entering the apartment you are greeted with floor to ceiling toughened glass which encases the floating oak hardwood staircase. The modern contemporary feel is perfectly complemented by the Stereo grass textured wallpaper and whitewashed brickwork that leads you into the living room. Open plan living room/kitchen with an attractive galleried landing with high vaulted ceilings gives the apartment a luxury modern twist on a Victorian inspired building. As soon as you enter the living space you are immediately struck by bounds of light from the extravagant double height sash windows. These windows have been carefully updated with wood frames, modern double glazing and window sills made from 'Hanex' in a chalk colour which compliments the colour scheme. The living space is ideal for socialising and entertaining guests whilst offering enough space to retreat to a tranquil corner. The Achilleos handmade kitchen is a piece of excellence, handmade chalk Corian facia only act to further improve the uniqueness. The worktop, which offers superb usable workspace, is Corian in Jicama which is an acrylic solid surface making it easy to maintain and impervious to staining. Built-in electrical appliances consist of AEG ceramic 6 burner electrical hob & oven, washer/dryer, Bosch dishwasher, drawer style fridge, freezer and a four shelf wine cooler. The kitchen is finished with a stylish 'Elica' extractor hood.
Moving away from the living quarters to the adjacent master bedroom you initially notice the generous space. Even with a super king size bed and an eight door built-in wardrobe you are still left with lots of floor space that is amplified by the decked balcony with two French doors, they offer views of the communal courtyard and the stunning night sky . Heading upstairs you have the choice to either go north or south. To the north you have a delightful bedroom with eaves storage, double height spired ceiling and a fully tiled en-suite. To the south of the property you are greeting initially with a fully tiled family bathroom with rainfall shower. You move into the final room, with its dramatic views into the living room, built-in storage and painted exposed steel beams; this space would make a superb bedroom or home office (as is current use).
