Warehouse Apartment

Great Guildford Street | Southwark | SE1

Two bedroom | One bathroom | One reception



This exceptionally bright two-bedroom apartment forms part of a late Victorian former warehouse. Internally, it offers over 1000 square foot of impressive, largely open-plan living space and has a wonderful sense of flow. Located in the heart of Southwark, its central location situates the apartment conveniently close to an array of restaurants, bars and some of London’s most celebrated markets.

The apartment resides on the first floor and is accessed via intercom. Arguably, the most impressive space is the open-plan living and dining room which has exceptionally high ceilings and an abundance of light owing to a series of crittall windows. The expanse is defined by a number of characterful features including wooden beams, original metal columns and a glazed cargo door that opens up to a Juliette balcony. In the kitchen, London stock brick has been exposed and hints at the building industrial origins. Sleek white units have been topped with black worktops, offering plenty of storage while fuchsia panelling adds a bold splash of colour.

The bathroom has a pared-back aesthetic with uniform white tiles creating a feeling of airiness.

The two bedrooms, are peacefully located to the rear of the apartment. Both have large crittall windows that continue the play of light. Built-in floor to ceiling cabinetry has been introduced providing a good amount of storage.

41 Great Guildford Street is a fantastically kept Victorian warehouse, formerly the works of Illingworth and Ingham, who were suppliers of furniture to London schools and offices, and is part of the Union Street conversation area. This is the traditional heart of the old ‘Borough, now inextricably linked with the most highly respected, international food scene in London.

Borough Market is a short 5 minute walk towards London Bridge, which needs no introduction. Maltby Street Market on nearby ropewalk also hosts popular weekend markets. Bermondsey Street is under a 10 minute stroll, and is home to an established but ever-changing list of restaurants, bars and coffee shops. The Southbank, one of the best city riverside walks in the world, is up the road and takes in the Tate Modern, Shakespeare’s Globe & White Cube, to name a few. The City of London is also under 20 minutes walk away.

Borough station is under 5 minutes walk away and connects directly with the Northern Line, useful for the city. Southwark station is a similar distance away and links with the Jubilee Line, providing a great connection to Canary Wharf, Westminster and Bond Street for the Elizabeth Line. London Bridge mainline rail and underground is under 10 minutes away and provides Northern, Jubilee and National Rail services to the entire south east of England.
