A modern, two bedroom mews house with parking and private terrace tucked away in SE1.
Actually, Brilliant House is much more than what you might think of as a mews house. It’s a uniquely modern twist on industrial living: a self-contained space that sits behind one of SE1’s many factory conversions – totally detached from the main building with its own private terrace, parking and access.
And, with remote working becoming the new normal, there’s nearly 1,200 square feet at your disposal: more than enough room to allocate space for a home office.
The raised lateral space is accessed privately from the street via a secure gate. Once upstairs, a vast room opens out with a heady mix of chrome, glass and wood flooring capped by a vaulted roof with glazed skylights and that cool glass bridge which provides access to the private roof terrace.
It’s a uniquely flexible space that will let you be creative with that work/life balance. There are two rooms at the far end which would lend themselves as work areas but are currently used as reception rooms.
The sizeable main bathroom can also be found off the living space. An internal staircase carries you up to another bedroom and from there you head across that feature internal bridge to sun yourself on your private terrace which takes in some marvellous local skyline views.
Ship and Mermaid Row is classic cobblestone alley and something of a historical gem; it got its name from the The Ship & Mermaid Public House that used be around the corner at Snowfields.
By London standards the area couldn't be quieter, it’s nestled amongst higher rise buildings which provide a peaceful backdrop – indeed, it’s hard to imagine that you’re only a few minutes walk from London Bridge Station and the City.
It’s also an area you’re unlikely to get tired of exploring. From the eclectic mix of coffee shops, restaurants and pubs around Bermondsey Street, to the super cool Vinegar Yard, Borough Market & South Bank, there’s more than enough to keep you occupied.
