Former church owed semi-detached cottage off ‘The Cut’, situated in the throng of urban Waterloo. A former market area, The Cut had upwards of 300 costermongers (fruit-sellers) that sold their wares in and around the area, serving the surrounding streets of railway worker cottages.
Everything a traditional urban cottage has to offer is in abundance, with separate kitchen, rear reception with iron-wrought fireplace, outhouse turned wash-room to the rear of the garden and side-return access. Two double bedrooms on the first floor, and family bathroom combine to make a wonderful living experience.
The south-facing rear garden is the best feature and is easily the best end of the street for privacy & size of the gardens. Easy access to the garden is provided from the side return, perfect for bikes, motorbikes etc...
The wash-house to the rear, with running water and electric, has the potential to be converted STPP, with an extension running from the rear of the cottage, increasing the square footage, curating a unique living space. The loft space can also be converted STPP.
Ufford Street recreation ground is just across the road for a further tree-strewn escape if required - it really is a hidden gem; unless you have lived in the surrounding streets, you would never know it was there.
Waterloo is rich in arts diversity, with the Old & Young Vic at the end of the road, offering up international and local productions. The Tate Modern is close by as well as The Vaults - an events space with a bar, and revolving schedule with different productions events on every week.
Local favourite restaurants and bars are The Vaulty Towers, EV restaurant and takeaway & the infamous rooftop Bar Elba.
The Cut is conveniently located two minutes away for easy accessibility into the City or the West End. Waterloo and Southwark Stations are 5 minutes from your door or there are numerous bus routes to be exploited on Waterloo and Blackfriars Road. Alternatively, on sunny days a walk or cycle to work along the river may be preference.
