"A herringbone parquet floor runs throughout the space, in contrast to the exposed brickwork of the original building."
Positioned on the third floor of this handsome former industrial warehouse is this remarkably individual two-bedroom apartment, which has undergone a complete and innovative renovation by multi-award winning interior designers Landmass London. Built in 1882, the building was originally used for storing imported wool from Australasia, due to its proximity to the Thames.
Measuring just under 1,300 sqft, accommodation includes an exceptional double-aspect living space that combines the seating area, dining space, and a meticulously designed kitchen that revolves around a central island. A herringbone parquet floor runs throughout the space, in contrast to the exposed brickwork of the original building. Oversized factory windows let in large amounts of north light.
The master bedroom is accessed through a pocket door, via a neatly arranged dressing area that sits opposite an en-suite bathroom equipped with a double basin and walk-in shower. The bedroom itself is connected to a second space, currently set up as a music room and library, that could be configured as a second bedroom with its own concealed entrance.
A more intimate room positioned off the main living area is used as a snug or cinema, decorated with lush velvet walls that provide an interesting alternative to the open, bright living areas in the rest of the apartment.
The apartment has been thoroughly refurbished behind the scenes, with completely modernised electric and plumbing systems – lighting played an important role in the design of the space. There is underfloor heating in both bathrooms.
The building has a 24-hour concierge and a well-maintained communal courtyard. There is a parking space in the underground car park that comes with the apartment.
Telfords Yard is conveniently located within easy walking distance of the City of London, just to the east of Tower Hill underground station. The bars and restaurants of St. Katherine’s Dock are nearby, along with pleasant walks along the Thames path and the cobbled streets of Wapping High Street. Shoreditch is a short distance to the north, and has a well-established selection of shops, cafes and excellent restaurants. Nearby Wapping station runs London Overground services to Highbury & Islington via Dalston Junction, and connects to the Jubilee Line at Canada Water and the DLR at Shadwell.
