One Bedroom | Open Plan Reception | Private Terrace



After a thorough round of renovations, this former wood-turning factory has been completely reworked and is now home to a one-bedroom ground floor apartment with a private terrace.

Hidden away and rarely seen for something approaching 27 years, but under the watchful guidance of German designer, Matthias Felsch, and sculptor, Jeff Lowe, the building now forms part of Mitre Mews, a courtyard development of five other houses and two apartments that all enjoy a secure gated entrance, courtyard areas and cycle storage.

This apartment extends to over 700 sq. ft of reimagined space that focuses on practical and attractive open plan living with enough flexibility to create or work from home if required. A private front door from the main courtyard gives direct access to the central living area which forms the main focal point of the interior and leads out to the private, westerly facing terrace through double doors.

The clean and uncluttered appearance, united with hugely practical touches, is a direct result of Jeff Lowe’s artistic eye and extends throughout with warehouse-style windows, heated, underfloor engineered wood floors, great ceiling heights, a deep and useful storage cupboard that houses a washing machine, and a fitted coat-and-shoe closet to the right of the front door.

The double bedroom across to the right-hand corner of the apartment has bespoke cabinetry and also leads out to the terrace through a large set of sliding doors.

Hither Green has enjoyed a very positive transformation over recent years and has a wonderful community atmosphere along with three village shopping parades straddling the railway. Walk a few minutes up to Hither Green Lane for artisan coffee and bakeries; enjoy a fancy breakfast or brunch around the corner at Arlo & Moe on Springbank Road; or cross under the tracks to lovely Staplehurst Road for the superb Station Hotel gastro pub, and fantastic pizzas at Sapore Vero.

And congratulations, you’ve just discovered one of South London’s best-kept transport secrets. Hither Green station is just four minutes’ walk away and has non-stop services to London Bridge taking around 10 minutes, and direct trains into Charing Cross, Cannon Street and Waterloo East. Alternatively, connect at New Cross for the Overground to Shoreditch, Dalston and Hackney via Canada Water, or switch platforms at Lewisham for the DLR to Bank, Stratford, Canary Wharf and City Airport.
