4 Bedroom Former Victorian Public House
Located just behind the Shard, this is an incredibly rare renovation. Once a Victorian public house called the Whitesmiths Arms, the building has been newly refurbished from top to bottom to the highest standards. It’s spread over 3000 sq ft and includes a large wine cellar, steam room, cinema and private terraced garden with views towards the London skyline.
The living space
At the front of the house, a private side entrance leads you into a huge open plan ground floor. Inside is a contemporary living area complete with original fireplace, dining area and stunning LEICHT kitchen which is fully fitted and has a large island unit in white Corian®. The kitchen also has a breakfast bar, wine cooler by Caple, built in coffee machine and a Siemens twin oven. A skylight and glass atrium roof offer loads of natural light while bi-fold doors completely fold back to the walled, private terraced garden giving a real indoor/outdoor feel and views towards the Shard. This entire floor has high ceilings and beautiful wide oak floorboards with exposed brickwork to match.
A beautifully finished staircase leads to the first floor which houses the master bedroom. It contains a large walk in wardrobe and stunning en-suite with a freestanding pebble bath and twin shower which has access to a unique private decked roof terrace. On the second floor is a further two bedrooms (one large and one smaller) with built in wardrobes and three-piece bathroom. On the top floor is a beautiful fourth bedroom with en-suite.
Where is it
Borough tube and London Bridge station are just a 5 minute walk away. There are also numerous bus routes and connections, with Borough Market, London Bridge, the Thames, and the Shard all a short stroll away.
What else you should know
The entire house is meticulously finished with a modern, contemporary style throughout while retaining exposed brick walls on all landings and the main staircase.
