Architect: Eva Jiřičná
Located on a quiet mews a short walk from Marylebone station, is this wonderfully bright and sophisticated two-bedroom loft apartment with private garage and direct access to a shared roof terrace.
Entry is to an expansive open-plan reception room, dining area, and kitchen with stainless steel worktops and gas cooker. Exposed-brick walls and original Crittal windows can be found throughout, and there is solid oak flooring in the principal rooms. Internal accommodation extends to almost 1,200 sq ft and is cleverly arranged around the central kitchen, bathroom and shower room (with guest WC). Corridors of built-in storage on either side of the apartment lead to the bedrooms and both are accessed through sliding pocket doors, providing for a versatility in arrangement and flow.
The flat is situated on the first floor of the sought-after Plympton Street Apartments, a former factory that was developed into lofts in the mid-1990s by the renowned Czech architect Eva Jiricna. Jiricna is best known for her commercial spaces, including the Joseph stores, and pioneered the use of glass as a structural material. She previously worked with Richard Rogers, handling many of the interiors on the Lloyd’s of London headquarters, before setting up her own esteemed practice.
Plympton Street has an outstanding location close to the shops and amenities of Marylebone and St John’s Wood, as well as the open spaces of Regent’s Park. It is within a short walk of the stations at Marylebone (Bakerloo Line and National Rail), Edgware Road (Bakerloo, Circle, District and Hammersmith & City Lines) and Paddington (Heathrow Express). The adjacent Church Street is home to the famous Alfie’s Antique Market, as well as some of the finest vintage-furniture dealers in London.
