"The sophisticated warehouse is entered via corrugated shutter doors to a vast single space, adapted for the current owners - a photographer / filmmaker and a musician."
Celebrating the drama of this former industrial space, this beautifully remodelled and versatile B1 C warehouse conversion on Warley Close is arranged over three levels and measures over 2,200 sqft internally.
Positioned on a discreet trading estate, the sophisticated warehouse is entered via corrugated shutter doors to a vast single space, adapted for the current owners – a photographer / filmmaker and a musician. The room can be divided in two using full-height bi-fold doors that sweep across the polished concrete floor. Light comes from glazed sections in the floor above that are punched into the concrete slab and supported by substantial exposed steel work. There are a number of tall fixed storage cupboards designed to integrate with the space, usefully placed around the room.
Access to the upper level living space is via a steel staircase fitted with chunky timber treads. The expansive room sits under a pitched roof that has a long run of skylights at its apex. The design masterfully blends a mix of salvaged wood, exposed brick walls and glazing. The kitchen has a reclaimed iroko worktop, whilst the floor is laid with solid-wood reclaimed timber.
A double door at one end opens to a south-facing terrace, decked and loaded with potted greenery. At the opposite end of the room, towards the rear, is a mezzanine level that accommodates the large bedroom. The exposed structure creates fantastic sight lines right across the space. Beneath the mezzanine is a bathroom with an elegant freestanding bath. Crittall windows punched through the brick walls bring light in from the rear of the building.
Warley Close is very well located just to the north of Hackney Marshes and the green spaces of Leyton Jubilee Park. Hackney Marshes, and the adjoining Lea River canals wind through the nature reserve provide an excellent area for walks, cycling and horse riding – a rarity in the city. A walk across the marshes leads to the popular Chatsworth Road, brimming with independent coffee shops, restaurants and a Sunday market. Walthamstow Village is around 15 minutes by bike.
Lea Bridge is the closest station, running direct services to Stratford for connections to the Jubilee Line, Central Line and London Overground. Journey time to Oxford Circus, for instance, is around 30 minutes. The current owners frequently use Blackhorse Road (Victoria Line) and Leyton (Central Line) underground stations, both of which are within walking distance.
