Loft Style Apartment | Grade II* Listed | Mezzanaine Bedroom | Parking

former baracks in woolwich south east london
Glorious ceiling heights, tudor-gothic architecture and a sleek contemporary specification define this double-height one-bedroom loft at the Royal Artillery Barracks in Woolwich.  

There’s a real sense of arrival as you step inside this eye-catching apartment through original double doors, followed by a major wow moment as you enter the central living space where the ceiling lifts to a height of 4 metres. Closely followed by extraordinarily tall Victorian windows with custom-made plantation blinds, the effect is cathedral-like as the light pours in through large glass panes.

Covering 739 sq ft (68 sq m), the interior divides across two levels, with the living space, kitchen and cloakroom on the ground floor, and the bedroom and shower room upstairs on a glass-fronted mezzanine.

The timeless modern aesthetic is inspired by contemporary and traditional elements to reflect the building’s historic roots and more recent reinvention. Victorian-style radiators, wide-plank engineered oak floors and a beautiful antique fireplace salvaged from France provide a heartwarming backdrop alongside an open-plan kitchen in gun-metal grey and an exquisite shower room and cloakroom that pair metro wall tiles and floor mosaics in white with contrasting anthracite grout.

Crucial to loft-living is adequate storage to maintain, and the apartment has a succession of large cupboards in the entrance hall as well as a built-in double wardrobe to the bedroom, providing more than adequate storage to hide away what you don’t on display and without having turn to hardcore minimalism.

Entrance at the former armt barracks in woolwich south east london

Constructed as part of the sprawling network of army barracks that once dotted the landscape, this handsome structure embodies the spirit of its time and the vision of its esteemed architect, James Wyatt, in its Tudor Gothic style.

Opened in 1806, Parade Ground Path formed a vital component of the British military’s strategic infrastructure, and to accommodate soldiers and officers stationed in the vicinity. In addition to providing essential amenities and living quarters for those tasked with defending the realm, the barracks played its most significant role in ballistics training.

James Wyatt was one of the foremost architects of his era, and the buildings are imprinted with his unmistakable style. Known for his mastery of classical architecture and innovative design principles, Wyatt imbued the barracks with a sense of grandeur and elegance that set it apart from its contemporaries. From its symmetrical facade and graceful proportions to its ornate detailing and meticulous craftsmanship, every aspect of the structure reflects Wyatt’s commitment to excellence and his reverence for the architectural traditions of the past.
