Winchester Wharf is a grade II listed former grain warehouse built in around 1820. It is set on London's famous Clink Street and on the River Thames.
The apartment is ideally located for those seeking an easy walk to London Bridge, The City and Waterloo and the hustle and bustle of Borough Market is just a short stroll away. Steeped in history, Clink Street itself is a popular destination. Winchester Wharf sits opposite the ruins of the 13th century Wincheter Palace and The Clink Prison Museum. Further local attractions include The Globe theatre, the Oxo Tower and Tate Modern, among the many interests offered along the South Bank. The area is replete with popular restaurants, bars and coffee shops and offers a myriad of independent and artisan businesses.
A communal front door on Clink Streets leads directly in to an entrance way. The apartment, located on the second floor, is reached by two flights of stairs or the lift.
This open-plan apartment at Winchester Wharf is the epitome of warehouse living and is one of just four homes in this historic building. The layout, which amounts to 1150 sq ft, maximises all of the available space and includes plenty of storage. Double doors from the entrance hall lead into the open-plan kitchen and living area. Well-preserved original timbers and exposed brick walls set the tone and create a beautiful backdrop to a contemporary kitchen and inviting living / dining area. In this tranquil room, it is easy to forget that the apartment is so centrally located. But open the doors and step out onto the glass-encased balcony and the full splendour, the sights and sounds, of London and The Thames can be enjoyed both day and night.
The two double bedrooms both feature exposed original brickwork as well as secondary double glazed windows. The master bedroom benefits from a well-appointed en-suite bathroom. The main, family-sized bathroom is located off the entrance hall.
Winchester Wharf is extremely well situated for travel within and beyond London. London Bridge station is located a short walk away through Borough Market, offering the Northern and Jubilee underground lines along with Thameslink trains between Gatwick and Luton Airports, and National Rail services to Kent, Surrey and Sussex.
