    SPECIFICATION

    Each property offers an exemplary specification throughout.

    Communal Areas

    From the moment you enter the development you are enveloped in its history. The triple height vaulted lobby walls are dressed with period influenced tiling and showcasing the old overhead crane and pulley systems used in the original Power Station becomes the centre piece of this refurbished Edwardian building.

    The communal lobby serving mews 1 and 4 is no less special with internal terraces looking down on to this vaulted space which is sheltered yet open to the elements.

    Living Areas

    The living areas for all apartments are on the upper floors and for apartments 2 and 3 can be reached by bespoke designed industrial steel staircases which are up-lit from below.

    All open plan living/dining areas offer vaulted ceilings showcasing original exposed brickwork, exposed original Edwardian steel and timber roof trusses and, in certain instances, original machinery has been refurbished to form features within the spaces. The skylights within the properties 1, 4 and 5 are electronically operated.

    Kitchens

    Like some staircases, the kitchens are all bespoke and designed by Krieder. Each kitchen has been sensitively and uniquely designed to sit in keeping with the warehouse style of the apartments with dark grey handle-less cabinetry and contrasting work tops and upstands. The pelmet lighting frames the spaces perfectly.

    All appliances are provided with integrated ovens, hob, microwave, dishwasher, fridge/freezer and washing machine.

    Lighting

    The lighting throughout has been sensitively installed to show off the buildings original features with recessed LED lighting and feature integrated with each apartments design. Uplighting to the exposed original brickwork in the hallway is a real feature.

    Flooring

    There is Amtico Herringbone flooring to all hallways with neutral carpeting in living areas and bedrooms provided by Dom Design. Amtico flooring is provided to all kitchen areas. Traditional dark grey moulded skirting and architraves offset the neutral flooring and accentuates wall finishes.

    Bathrooms and En Suites

    Like the living spaces the bathrooms and en suites are also befitting of the warehouse look and feel, with white Villeroy and Boch sanitaryware offset by designer matt black fittings. Designer mirrors and heated matt black towel radiators are key features in these beautifully designed spaces set on feature tiled walls of either a herringbone or chevron design.

    Storage Solutions

    As they are generous in size each apartment offers good storage solutions with walk in wardrobes or bespoke fitted wardrobes to the principal bedrooms in properties 2, 4 and 5. In addition, all properties have their own dedicated storage rooms within the basement of the building.

    Peace of Mind

    For peace of mind all homes have a high security entrance door with multi-point locking system and provide a high security intruder alarm system. There are also mains operated smoke and carbon monoxide detectors throughout.

    Heating

    The properties each have a gas fired hot water and central heating system with bespoke thermostatically controlled radiators another key design feature of the properties.

    Parking

    Each property benefits from an allocated secure off street parking space.

Every apartment offers its own unique features showcasing the building's past. Yet every property offers generous living spaces, vaulted ceilings and an exceptional specification. A viewing is highly recommended.
