Immaculate 3 bed Georgian apartment with stunning interior design set in the Trinity House conservation area, by Southbank/ London Bridge.
This immaculate Georgian home is set in the Trinity House conservation area and is part of the Trinity Church Square built around 1800. While retaining some original features, it has been tastefully and sensitively refurbished inside. The property boasts 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms and sits in a quiet street, only a short walk away from the busy Borough High Street and London Bridge Quarter / Southbank. Walk to such attractions as the Shard, Tower Bridge, London Bridge, Borough Market, Globe Theatre, Tate Modern to name a few.
The living room is a real treat - cosy, yet spacious, with some eye-catching decoration! This is a big open space, with double-height ceilings and looks up to the incredible glass walls on the second floor. Exposed brick walls and wooden beams maintain some of the former feeling of the property. The light is a best friend here and comes in through numerous windows, glass archways and skylights.
The large wooden top table will accommodate up to eight diners while white designer sofa separates the living room in highly functional areas. The open plan kitchen is equipped with everything you'll need to make meals at home, and the bar chairs add another dimension to this diverse living space. Access to the first floor bedrooms is available through a couple of modern wooden & steel stairs on either side of the living room.
With one king bedroom and one double bedroom (along with the potential for a third bedroom), there is plenty of room for families or groups of friends alike. The master bedroom has a double bed and an en suite. The second bedroom also has a double bed, and the third bedroom is a study which can be set up as a bedroom, upon request, with a double height luxury air mattress.
The local area of London Bridge is a vibrant community, with plenty of interesting bars, restaurants and shops to explore. You're also near to the famous Borough Market with its fantastic selection of stalls selling a mixture of fresh food and drink. Wander through the market on a sunny morning and enjoy tasting the great olives, breads, puddings and more!
Bermondsey High Street is nearby, and it offers some lovely dining choices (Jose's, Cass Croute), as well as some good bars (The Hyde, The Wolfpack). The up-and-coming foodie paradise, Maltby Market, is also a short walk away. If you fancy taking in some culture, the White Cube Gallery and Menier Chocolate Factory (one of London's premier fringe theatres) are some wonderful options in Bermondsey, and the Old Vic, New Vic and National aren't far.
Right by Borough Market is the 1,000 year old Southwark Cathedral and on the opposite side of the road, the newly completed Shard, the tallest building in Europe. This area is very historical and as reflected in the street names, was frequented and immortalised by Dickens, Shakespeare and Chaucer.
The Southbank of the Thames is also only a few minutes' walk too with its street performers, street foods, arts venues and riverside cafes and bars. Carry on along the river, taking in the London Dungeons, Clink Museum, Shakespeare's Globe, Tate Modern, Royal Festival Hall, Hayward Gallery, London Eye and. if your legs will carry you, the view of the London skyline from Waterloo Bridge is spectacular!
Potters Fields Park is close to the house too, with great views of the river and the iconic Tower Bridge. Walk the other way along the Thames from London Bridge and you quickly reach Tower Bridge by the Tower of London and the Mayor of London's headquarters building known as The Headlamp.
On the Southbank there is also Shad Thames with all its converted wharves and on the north bank you'll find St. Katherine's dock.
For transport, Borough tube station is the closest, about a 3 minute walk, which joins the Northern line. From here you can be at Oxford Street for shopping in less than 20 minutes. It is also less than a 10 minute walk to the huge London Bridge station where you can join the Jubilee line as well as the Northern line, or catch National rail connections, as well as a number of popular bus routes. Catch the 149 up to Spitalfields Market, or the Columbia Road flower market, on Sunday .
