THIS STUNNING two-bed mews house hidden in the heart of London was once a paper warehouse but could now be yours for less than £1m.
Incredible images show cosy, light-filled bedrooms, a sleek bathroom and a modern kitchen.
Other striking shots show spacious living areas filled with character, a study space and a lovely courtyard area to relax in outside.
The two-bed house is located on Ramsden Road, Balham, South West London and is currently listed by Unique Property Company for £945k.
“As with much of this affluent part of town, access is via one of the pretty streets, lined with imposing period property, just moments from the buzz of Balham High Road,” states the listing.
“What you won’t see however, is the house from the road, this particular road being one of the area’s most sought after. You’ll have to shimmy through the private gated entrance and in to a wonderfully landscaped courtyard that’s surrounded by the property, a former paper warehouse and the home of thirty years to the current owner, an accomplished TV commercials producer with a creative eye who’s absolutely transformed this in to something that wouldn’t look out of place on the pages of an interiors magazine.
“The building itself stood to the rear of what was once a print works and now a series of private conversion flats and served as a paper warehouse. Whilst it may have a very linear, architectural feel, it’s a really warm environment and has lost none of its period charms. Evidence of its industrial roots are dotted around. The decorative tones used add to the tranquil feel.
“The ground floor is largely an open plan affair but it still manages to seamlessly house an office space, living, dining and kitchen area, all of which benefits from large Crittall windows and doors or vast skylights.
“The courtyard is accessed from the living area or entrance and thanks to the plot being landlocked, it’s incredibly quiet. That said, sling those doors open and the living area and courtyard provide the perfect party environment.
“The upper floor is served by two bedrooms and bathroom, again all benefiting from the owners’ attention to detail, plus the vaulted ceilings, adding some drama to the feel of space.
“If you can drag yourself away, there’s no shortage of social haunts on the doorstep. From coffee to craft beer, veggie to vegan, it’s all on tap. Travel is extremely well catered for. Overline trains at Balham run regularly into Victoria and the tube (Northern Line) propels you through the City, Shoreditch via Clapham and beyond.”
