This cracking open plan loft apartment in South West London offers loads of character volume and light and is brilliantly located directly opposite Southfields tube station.
Perfect for those looking to enter the world of loft living without paying Shoreditch prices, this cool space is one of just five converted from the top two floors of a former commercial building right in the heart of buzzy Southfields. All the local shops, bars and cafes are seconds away and this niche loft development offers a dollop of urban living to compliment its hyper local central location.
Entered via a smart and unassuming doorway off the main street, a well maintained hallway and staircase takes you easily to the apartment itself. The main living area is classic loft living, meaning almost triple height ceilings, loads of windows, wood flooring and a decent sized open plan kitchen with breakfast bar for casual dining and room divider. There is shelving galore for all your Nigella cookbooks and a really unique view towards all the action outside, including the rather beautiful Victorian station building itself.
The mezzanine provides the flexibility of either a second bedroom or home work space and comes with plenty of storage. There is also a well designed bathroom on this level, currently with free-standing bath but one could easily transform into a massive walk-in shower room.
The top floor provides a bright sunny bedroom with its own WC and basin. Currently there is a large wardrobe here but again, one could create a wet room quite easily with this space. A balcony gives far reaching views across London.
Whilst obviously a great ‘starter’ loft, this cracking apartment would actually make a really cool pied-a-terre (I mean the tube station is right opposite!) or rental investment, being a five minute walk from one of the world’s most iconic sporting venues, Wimbledon at The All England Tennis Club. Rents during the two weeks of the championships are quite incredible!
Southfields itself is a great neighbourhood situated between Wimbledon and Wandsworth. There are some really good local pubs, independent restaurants and bars and is generally very well served for shops both big and small. Obviously the transport links are superb, withe the aforementioned Southfields tube station linking the area with places such as Fulham and Chelsea in just 4 or 5 stops.
