Waterloo Warehouse Conversion, Liverpool
Warehouse hunting this week, we’ve turned our attention to a recent development in the heart of the Liverpool Docklands. Waterloo Road has seen a large area of Grade II listed warehouse space, dating back to 1868, converted into highly sought-after apartments overlooking the waterfront.
Originally three blocks of corn warehouses, they were the first in the world to handle bulk grain entirely by central power source. The north block was destroyed in the May Blitz in 1941, and the west demolished in 1969. What remains is a Liverpool landmark, built from brick with iron framed windows and an exterior that has barely changed.
Many of the building’s original features have been protected, with properties offering spacious, open-plan rooms and exposed brickwork. The area is steeped in history, with the historic Bonded Tea Warehouse and the Hydraulic Pumping Station just a stone’s throw away.
The exposed brickwork vaulted ceilings give this 2 bedroom apartment in Waterloo Warehouse real wow-factor. And we love the unusual porthole style windows that seem to appear in every room. With so much character and style in one home, we’re seriously considering a move
