    About this property

    • A rare opportunity to acquire an exceptional Grade II listed freehold property in Wapping. Currently arranged as a single dwelling, this character-filled home was originally constructed in 1823 as a terrace of 3 houses, one of which is now presented as a spectacular, open-plan double-height space. Walled gardens on either side of the property offer privacy and a charming outlook.

      Upon walking into the property via the Eastern entrance, you are greeted with an impressive porch or garden room with plenty of space for storage, coats and shoes. This leads you to a cosy reception room with a study to the right. The ground floor provides a fully fitted country style kitchen and separate dining area at the centre of the house, with an additional utility area and W/C. To the left, you will find a hallway leading you to the open-plan area that currently accommodates a bright sitting room with dining area, but has also been used as a design studio and showroom. This studio/reception room features a characterful spiral staircase, providing access upstairs whereby you will find three double bedrooms, a roof terrace, wardrobe facilities and two contemporary bathrooms, both with bathtubs and walk-in showers.

      At the rear of the house you will find another entrance facing West, with a generously sized garden area with outbuilding which currently houses a garden office.
