A true one off, this incredible studio house has been created from a former rehearsal space of the Royal Shakespeare Company in Clapham, South London, by its interior designer owner.
Offering 3442 sqft of amazing, flexible accommodation, the house has a central living area of epic proportions. This former photographic and rehearsal studio is simply a stunning room, with a dramatic modern kitchen providing a metallic contrast to the late Victorian period splendour. Masses of exposed brick, original floor boards and period skylights add to the urban chic style of the house.
The ground floor also provides two further reception rooms, beautifully designed around the more traditional period features of cornicing and fireplaces.
The entire first floor contains the glorious master bedroom suite and was previously a one bedroom apartment! There is a large sitting/dressing area with a stunning free-standing bathroom and the sleeping area has a shower room en-suite.
The top floor contains two large double bedrooms, another beautiful bathroom and a small kitchen, which could easily provide another bathroom, if required.
In the basement, the owners have created a home gym, with shower room and a utility space. To the front of the house, there is a courtyard area that currently provides an off-street parking space but also doubles as the front garden. All behind smart metal gates.
The overall feel is of modern glamour meets urban grit and makes this a truly London home. We believe its style and flexibility will appeal to those looking for the lateral, industrial feel of a loft apartment and those just looking for a cool family home. It’s very secretive location at the end of a small lane off Clapham High Street adds to its urban appeal.
The location is great, being a total surprise but just a few seconds away from the high street, with its many bars, restaurants and supermarkets. Clapham High Street Overground Station and Clapham North are just moments away and Clapham Common Park only a 5 minute walk from the house.
