948 Sq Ft | Live Work Warehouse Apartment

Huge windows and generous ceilings dominate this  948 sq ft first floor, live/work warehouse apartment at, The Carlton Works, one of Peckham’s best preserved slices of industrial architecture.

Architecture & interior

The Carlton Works is a fabulous piece of Victorian architecture which is rumoured to have been a perfume factory at one stage in its long life. Dating back to the early twentieth century, the building is atypical of industrial architecture with high ceilings and Crittall windows throughout.

Set back from the road, the building is nestled away behind iron gates and has private parking in its courtyard.

Whilst the location is super central, it’s a quiet place to be at home. Located on the first floor, the cool open space offers a large open plan reception/live work area and feels remarkably tranquil. There’s a separate double bedroom enjoying that industrial aesthetic along with a bathroom.

The high ceilings, huge expanse of walls, big windows and white washed floors set the scene nicely and epitomize loft living.

Amongst the sea of regeneration it’s refreshing to see authentic industrial building surrounded by all the new developments.


In the neighbourhood

Queens Road Peckham is renowned for its independent cafés and restaurants, including Peckham Cellars and the Blackbird Bakery under the railway arches. Also in the neighbourhood Forza Win is a firm favourite, along with The Deserted Cactus Caribbean restaurant and local institution The Begging Bowl serving amazing Thai food.

Rye Lane, Peckham Levels and the infamous Franks Rooftop Bar are a short walk away.

Both Burgess Park and Brimmington Park are within a ten-minute walk and provide a slice of tranquillity for local residents.


Transport & Connections

Queen’s Road station is a 10-minute walk away and offers an easy commute to central and east London. A proposed extension to the Bakerloo line would see a new station just moments from The Carlton Works at the junction of Asylum Road and the Old Kent Road.

The Carlton Works is something of an enigma. It’s a handsome and imposing example of the architecture that swept through what was south east Londons industrial heartland around the early part of the 20th century. It’s understood that it spent a large portion of its life as a perfume warehouse.
