"We've lived in Globe Wharf for over eight years," say the owners of this great warehouse home.
"We'd always wanted to live in a warehouse conversion and loved the original features in this apartment. The fact that Globe Wharf offered a swimming pool and gym was a real bonus! The building's also ideally located - we can get to central London or Shoreditch in less than half an hour, but we can also escape the bustle of the city and enjoy quiet walks by the river."
Globe Wharf is a grade II listed warehouse conversion believed to have been built in around 1883. Between 1996 and 1999, Globe Wharf was sensitively converted into 138 apartments, retaining original features throughout and offering residents a New York style loft living experience.
This 2-bedroom apartment is located on the second floor, with both lift and stair access.
Inside, exposed brickwork and original steel columns enhance the sense of authentic warehouse character.
The living room is south-facing, benefiting from plenty of natural light. Double doors lead out to a balcony with ample space for a table and chairs - the perfect place to relax with a coffee and watch the world go by.
The kitchen has a brand new dishwasher, oven and washer dryer, good cupboard space and a convenient hanging rack for all of your pots and pans.
A large glass serving hatch makes it easy to pass drinks to guests and fills the kitchen with natural light from the living room's large balcony doors.
The two double bedrooms overlook an attractive internal courtyard. The spacious master bedroom has plenty of warehouse character, with an exposed brick feature wall and steel column.
Double doors opening to a juliet balcony make this a really inviting room. The second bedroom is currently laid out as a guest room / home office, with fitted bookshelves and very comfortable cabin bed offering plenty of storage, together with a fitted chest of drawers.
It's an ideal space for anyone looking to work from home. The apartment also offers a good-sized family bathroom and 2 fitted double storage cupboards in the hallway (one configured with hanging space for coats and with room for shoes, the other ideal for storing the iron and ironing board and household supplies).
Globe Wharf is situated just a 15 minute walk from Canada Water for the Jubilee line (one stop to Canary Wharf) and a 25 minute riverside walk from Tower Bridge, the Tower of London and historic Shad Thames.
It is also just a 7-minute walk from Rotherhithe old village, for the Overground (for direct travel to Shoreditch or a quick way into Bank and Liverpool Street) and one of London's oldest pubs, the Mayflower. Canary Wharf, on the other side of the water, can also be reached by river taxi in less than 10 minutes.
The building has a well-equipped gym and concierge service.
Residents also have access to the leisure centre with swimming pool, jacuzzi and sauna, located in the adjacent building. The apartment comes with allocated secure underground parking and bicycle racks, both to be found in the adjacent building.
The apartment is available part-furnished or unfurnished.
Available from the start of December.
