This wonderful two-bedroom penthouse extends to 1,231 sq ft internally with two wonderful terraces affording views of London's skyline.
Originally built as a grain store in the 1800's, the apartments have been sympathetically designed by 5plus Architects to integrate a sense of the building's history into modern living spaces, with oak panel flooring and glimpses of exposed brickwork.
Open plan kitchens feature light grey units and stunning white quartz work surfaces, and are fitted out with a full suite of high end Bosch appliances, setting a standard for both form and function. The intimate spaces of the bedroom and bathroom continue the contemporary theme. Mosa Terra Maestricht ceramic tiles in the bathroom are a timeless classic, adding a unique touch to any surface, complemented by Duravit and Hansgrohe fixtures.
Internal accommodation is configured across two storeys. Access is gained on the ground floor, via a communal entrance to the building with a lift and communal staircase providing access to the upper floors. The third floor is occupied by a large master bedroom with en-suite bathroom, built-in wardrobes and glazed doors overlooking the park at the rear of the warehouse. There is also a second bedroom, family bathroom and good storage spaces on this floor. The fourth floor is arguably the most impressive area of the apartment; it's open plan which floods the entire floor in wonderful levels of natural light. It's arranged to have the kitchen at the rear with door opening out onto a large terrace, and living and dining areas occupying the rest of the floor, with access to a front terrace. The view from the terrace offers a glimpse of the Thames.
Parking is also available through separate negotiation.
Red Lion Court is well served for transport links. Wapping station is approx five minutes' walk and runs London Overground service citywide and is only one stop from Canada Water (Jubilee Line). Two local bus services run to Liverpool Street and Canary Wharf respectively. Canary Wharf is accessible on foot or by bike, via the Thames path.
Wapping sits on the north bank of the Thames, and has a long maritime history. As such, the high street is lined with warehouses that served the docks. 'Waterman's stairs' lead onto the riverbanks and there are excellent waterfront pubs. Nearby green spaces include Wapping Woods; a favourite local spot for dog-walkers, sunbathers and wildlife spotters. King Edward VI park lies minutes from the front door with tennis courts, children's play areas, all adjacent to the banks of the Thames. Swedenborg Gardens, Wapping Gardens and St George's Gardens are also close by.
Red Lion Court is also close to the steel bascule bridge, past a beautiful Victorian pumphouse. The Thames path winds east through Wapping and takes in wonderful views, converted dock warehouses and pubs, including the local Prospect of Whitby, a firm favourite with Dockland enthusiasts, tourists and locals alike.
