A former pet food factory with a tumultuous history, this sprawling four bedroom, 2450sqft top floor conversion is very much the optimisation of work-from-home living.
This property personifies loft living; an inspiring space to live, breathe and operate from. Saving on the commute, office overheads and business rates; this is a most cost effective way of bringing your work into your personal life.
Once the largest dog food factory in the world, James Spratt set up the business in 1860 & based his company here from 1899, to much pomp and grandeur. Limehouse Cut and it's wide canal provided easy transport for inventory, and hence the factory was born here and ran for many successful decades.
However derelict for many years after the introduction of purchase tax in 1969, the warehouses sprung back to life in 1985, developed by JJAK Construction, and sold as empty shells. Spratt's Complex is believed to be the first warehouse development of its kind to be sold in London, and if not England.
Now 40 years on, the warehouse is thriving with a lively community of dedicated residents keen to maintain the former grandeur, and this work/live loft is no exception.
Four super king-size bedrooms fill the space, two generous bathrooms and an epic double height vaulted reception, with open/plan kitchen. Everything is fresh and very well looked after by the present owners, furnished to a high standard with a loving touch. There is also a big 'sun trap' terrace and two smaller balconies, for relaxing on during these uncertain times.
A private parking space is also provided, along with secure code access entry.
Patent House has fantastic transport connections, with Langdon Park DLR 3 minutes walk away, and four stops away from Canary Wharf and the Jubilee Line. Several major bus routes go right outside the front gates taking you to the City, Canary Wharf and East London.
Canary Wharf is your local go-to for sumptuous opportunities for eating, dining and entertaining. Boisdale of Canary Wharf is a firm favourite for a great steak, drinks and live music, and Giant Robot for an Art Deco inspired, cocktail night out.
For your closest supermarkets, Tesco Express is only a 30 second walk away, along with a Co-op a short walk away.
