Draper & Company are pleased to market this incredible apartment. If you have never been to a School conversion you must come and see this as they really are unique spaces and epitomise the wow factor when it comes to property statement pieces. Dating back to the late 1800s and formally known as Thackery School, it closed its doors in the 1980s and was converted for commercial use before being turned into loft-style apartments in 2004 with the current owners taking possession in the late 2000s. The building has retained a large proportion of its historical period features along with immaculately landscaped communal gardens, giving residents a real sense of grandeur and a feeling of owning a piece of London history.
Set behind secure gates with intercom, CCTV, a residents' lift, allocated parking and rarely seen in these types of properties, this development offers a great mix of historical period charm and the comfort of modern living.
The collection of loft-style apartments are all unique with each one designed to make the most of the individual living space created out of old classrooms with super high ceilings. It is this volume that allowed the designers to create a dual-level living area however in many cases an open mezzanine is created to the living space which while interesting often doesn't work very well in practice.
This property has overcome this by cleverly sealing the mezzanine to the reception room while retaining the light and therefore has created an en-suite master bedroom that is larger than many studio flats! Couple this with a cavernous reception room sure to wow any dinner guests, a separate kitchen, 2 further large bedrooms, and another bathroom all set over 1500sqft and you really have a serious pad.
