This unique apartment is situated on the second floor of Bedford House in Balham and benefits from a private balcony and is ready for immediate occupation.
The Living Area
This stunning apartment is located on the second floor of Bedford House, the recent winner of Best Development in London' at the 2018 International Property Awards. The apartment features a generously proportioned open plan living area with areas designed for relaxing and dining smartly delineated by subtle lighting zones.
The apartment is flooded with natural light from it's floor-to-ceiling windows. It has bronze-coloured aluminium-framed sliding doors that open onto a patio with access to the development's peaceful courtyard garden.
This schemes smart sophistication is reflected in the apartments neutral palette, with white and off-white walls and woodwork, and white smoked oak wood floors. It makes for a simple elegant apartment, ready for you to unpack as soon as you move in, or a blank canvas for your own sense of style.
The high-quality German kitchen fits perfectly with the smart sophisticated style of the rest of the living area. Satin lacquer cabinets are in snowy white and steely grey colours, with integrated aluminium handles and soft closing doors providing a feeling of luxury. The grey palette continues with the granite tones of the composite stone worktops and full-height splashbacks, as well as the stainless-steel undermounted sink.
The high-specification kitchen appliances all by Siemens reflect the quality of the development overall. The apartment has an integrated dishwasher, combination oven/microwave, ceramic hob, built-in extractor fan and full-height fridge/freezer. The washer/dryer is also by Siemens but, as part of our careful consideration of the best design for the apartment overall, we've placed it in a hall cupboard, to minimise the noise and clutter in the kitchen area.
Again, we've paid attention to the smaller details putting the dishwasher next to the sink for ease of use, installing both concealed as well as visible sockets, integrating a pull-out recycling bin and cutlery trays into the kitchen unit, having LED task lighting above the worktop small but thoughtful touches that make day-to-day living that little bit smoother.
The Bathroom and en-suite
This apartment has a separate bathroom with a bath/shower combination, as well as an en-suite bathroom to the master bedroom with a walk-in shower with a frameless floor-to-ceiling glass divide. High-quality brassware and sanitaryware includes sleek white basins with vanity units tucked away, containing a soft-closing drawer. The bathroom and en-suite are fully tiled with sophisticated natural stone-colour tiles on the walls and floors, and there is underfloor heating with individual room control as well as a large electric towel rail.
The Showers have handheld wands as well as overhead showers so you don't need to get your hair wet unless you want to, whilst taps are sited away from the flow of water so you can turn them on and remain dry! The bathroom and en-suite contain LED strip lighting to create a more relaxing environment and the shower screen in the bathroom has been designed to fold back flush against the wall. We've tried to remove clutter for a relaxing experience, with shaving sockets and shelves concealed in little niches. We've kept the focus on luxury throughout, such as wall-hung WCs with soft-close seats and integrated mirror demisters.
The contemporary master bedroom has space for a kingsize bed opposite a large wall, which has been reinforced if you wish to install a TV or hang a statement piece of art. Set slightly apart from the sleeping area, there is a separate dressing zone, complete with a full-height mirror and an elegant built-in wardrobe. Specially designed for the Bedford House development, the wardrobes have linen linings and concealed lighting, bringing a sense of luxury to the room. High-quality carpets in a soft ash colour complement the white walls and the hemp tones of the wardrobes. The floor-to-ceiling windows bring lots of light, and are also double-glazed for complete relaxation.
