The workers who came and went from this building when it was a dairy back in the 1880s would barely recognise the space which now makes up a beautiful, flowing apartment across three floors. What was an old dairy is now a considered and highly desirable collection of apartments and creative spaces. The current owner of this apartment told me that he recently had a very lovely conversation with a cheerful woman and was only later told that he’d been chatting to Adele during a break from recording at one of the studio spaces.
Words such as “sprawling” and “vast” are probably over-used in property copy: in this case they’re exactly the right words to describe this beautifully arranged apartment of over 3000 sq ft with two lovely terraces with views across London. “From our home we see the sun rise, track its progress during the day and can then see the sun set over west London” said the owner. “There’s light filling the space throughout the day”. There is also considerable flexibility in the internal space. Currently arranged across the three floors with a bedroom and study with one terrace at the top and the main breathtaking living space taking up the middle entrance-level floor which is arranged with two living rooms and a second large terrace. The lower floor has a further two bedrooms.
The spec across the apartment is high. The current owner clearly relishes one of the bathrooms with its walk in shower and bespoke stone bath. “We’ve loved living and enjoying this unique space. But one of the things that’s so special about this apartment is its ability to be changed to the specific needs of each owner. In many ways it offers a stunning blank canvas.”
This quarter of London has always been a creative hub with the old BBC Television Centre just down the road. The area continues to evolve and is now a magnet for creative and clever thinkers looking for an urban home which is close to everything. A ten minute walk will bring you to Holland Park, Brook Green or The Westfield Centre and all of the associated entertainment and eating benefits that go with that kind of proximity.
“This is a very special place to live. We leave with much sadness but we’ve come to a different part of our lives with schools and children now at the centre of our focus”. This is probably one of the coolest places to live, create, participate and also just to look out of the huge windows and watch the world and the sun go by.
