The remarkable thing about this exquisite live/work warehouse apartment in what can only be described as the “villagey side of Bermondsey”, is its versatility! The complete revamp that followed the purchase in 2010 by its current owner set about retaining the industrial authenticity but creating a space that maximised modern home and work life.

The flat is on the first floor of a wonderfully preserved Victorian brick warehouse on Tyers Gate just off the northern end of Bermondsey Street and in the coveted and creative area which has emerged from the revival of the whole London Bridge Station environment. The complete refurbishment of the flat which followed the current owners purchase of the property in 2010 has embraced all that is good in the authentic industrial site. Imperfections in the brick work have been celebrated and gnarly wooden beams and central supporting iron pillars have been showcased.

The substantial open plan space is finished as it always was in red London brick with wooden beams throughout. The space has huge dual aspect windows; on one side overlooking the greenery and trees of Leather Market Gardens – a haven of green in a very urban setting. The space has been cleverly zoned to create distinctive living spaces whilst retaining the unique airiness and sense of generosity which distinguishes this style of architecture. An island and breakfast bar creates a visual border between the kitchen and the lounge area with space for a large dining table to another part. Discretely tucked away is the main bedroom, hidden behind floor to ceiling shelving with colour matched door. Next to this is a set of sliding screens which can be used to create privacy for a second bedroom with a comfortable wall-mounted and retractable double bed. There is the option to leave the screens in their recesses to create a light filled office area. Both bedroom areas have integrated wardrobe storage.

A full bathroom with a good sized shower, toilet and basin sits in another corner of the open plan space.

Bermondsey Village is home to many long-term residents who have long appreciated its unique position in the capital. This is an area with a rich industrial heritage, unrivalled architecture and an unmatched mix of the most innovative creative spaces, restaurants, bars and cafes as well as theatre and retail while being a quiet and hidden spot. And all just a stones throw from Tower Bridge and the river.

Buses, tubes and overground trains make this area one of the most connected places in the whole of London with the Thames Clipper just over the road on the Thames Path giving access to the West End, Chelsea and further upstream Richmond and in the other direction The City and Greenwich.

This is a remarkable apartment of the highest quality build and fitting out in one of the most desirable parts of London. Tyers Gate has been at the centre of the history and progression of London for many years and will remain so for a further century or so.
