The three-bedroom flat is on the fourth floor of the Mauretania Building in Wapping – a quiet pocket of London known for its historic warehouses and, more macabrely, its historic hangman’s noose. The apartment overlooks the river and Thames Path from its living room via floor-to-ceiling glazing that accesses a private balcony spanning the entire width of the flat.
Listed with The Modern House for £1.1m, the 1173 sq ft apartment has been refurbished by its owners. The main space comprises a seating area, dining room and kitchen by Rotpunk, zoned from the living room by a walnut and quartz island.
Similarly, the primary bedroom has full glazing and sliding doors to the terrace. Grey rubber flooring has been laid, and the en-suite bathroom has been renovated with hexagonal ceramic tiles and floating cabinetry. Two more double bedrooms have built-in storage – one is currently used as a study.
The Mauretania Building is a stone’s throw from Narrow Street, where there are restaurants, pubs and bars. Limestone and Shadwell Overground stations are a short walk.
