Recently revamped with a luxurious fit out, this large lateral loft apartment ticks many boxes, offering some unique features which add to its charm and its great location.
Designed by a local London Architect and remodelled it extends to over 900 square feet of internal space as well as a good sized balcony overlooking St Saviours Dock. The apartment is situated on the second floor of this popular development and comes with a secure underground parking space, bike storage, porter services and CCTV.
All rooms benefit from wide oak wooden floors, the reception room is both spacious and light and has unique storage spaces which house a music system which is controlled via a smart home Control4 system which also controls the Lutron lighting (Four different mood settings), three audio zones, one HD TV, cinema system, iDock and Amplifier. A separate storage cupboard opens up to reveal a concealed cocktail bar, which blends in seamlessly, and a final storage cupboard houses a wine cooler. Perfect! There is also a built in projector and screen for those cinema style nights in.
The kitchen appliances are all built in and include a Miele Hob + Oven, AEG Electrolux Washer Drier and Fridge Freezer as well as a SMEG Dishwasher. The worktops are made of Corian, and there are plenty of kitchen units for food storage. One section of the kitchen also doubles up as a breakfast bar.
Moving onto the bedroom which again offers wall to wall wardrobe space, another clever built in storage cupboard with built in HDTV, large warehouse windows and a high specification en-suite bathroom including designer branded features like a Hansgrohe raindance shower and heated towel rail.
Additional benefits include two further storage cupboards in the hallway (one houses the boiler), wall mounted video entry system and a lift which services all floors.
The street Shad Thames has Tower Bridge at its west end, and runs along the south side of the River Thames, set back behind a row of converted warehouses; it then takes a 90 degree turn south along St Saviour's Dock. The street is known for being partly cobbled.
The nearest stations are Tower Hill and London Bridge which are both within 10 minutes walk or two bus stops.
As part of the regeneration of the area, was designer and restaurateur Terence Conran who opened a number of now well-known riverside restaurants including Pont de la Tour, the Blueprint Cafe and the Butler's Wharf Chop House.
The area also includes numerous cafes, bars and shops, as well as other boutique-style businesses such as architects, small art galleries and wine merchants.
Terence Conran was also involved in founding the Design Museum near the east end of Shad Thames, which houses frequently-changing exhibitions of graphic and product design, and is a fairly well-known haunt of designers and tourists. As well as an interesting shop and cafe, the museum features the "Design Museum Tank", a large outdoor glass box, which contains a selection of items from the current exhibition. The museum is also used as a venue for corporate events.
The nearby Tower Bridge, Tower of London, City Hall, More London (where various cultural events take place) and riverside places of interest further west such as Borough Market, the London Dungeon, Golden Hind, Clink Street and Tate Modern. The Shard London Bridge - Europe's tallest building, under construction nearby and scheduled for completion in 2013 - is expected to increase the popularity of the locality further.
