2 bedroom apartment for saleImperial Club, Apartment 5, Westbourne Drive, London, SE23
Sold STC £725,000
Positioned on a quiet residential street a short walk from Forest Hill station, is this elegant redevelopment of a former industrial building known as Imperial Club. The team behind the project is Frame, a design-led property group founded by architects Nick Mansour and Hugo Braddick.
Apartment 5 is a bright split-level two-bedroom unit measuring over 1,000 sq ft internally. The entrance is on the second floor, which contains a large bedroom and family bathroom. Upstairs on the third floor, there is a master bedroom, with en-suite bathroom, and an expansive open-plan kitchen and living space with doors opening onto a large roof terrace and green roof.
The development consists of five apartments and three contemporary houses, with a simple and stylish monochrome façade of white glazed brick and black Crittall windows.
Internally, the open living spaces are expansive and bright with exceptionally high ceilings and large amounts of glazing. The proportions of the rooms and the palette of raw materials, particularly wood and steel, echo the buildings industrial past. The kitchens, made from quarter-sawn Douglas Fir, are designed to be concealed from the main space by large sliding doors.
Forest Hill has become a very popular area of south-east London with the help of the London Overground extension. As a result, there are plenty of very good independent cafes, restaurants and pubs in the immediate area around Imperial Club. The Horniman Museum and Gardens is a very popular destination for young families, with a child-friendly café, anthropological museum and farmers’ market every Saturday morning. The centres of Dulwich and Peckham are within easy walking distance.
There are a number of ‘outstanding’ primary schools in the Forest Hill area, including Fairlawn Primary and Eliot Bank Primary.
The nearest station is Forest Hill, running London Overground services to Highbury & Islington via Shoreditch High Street and Canada Water (for connections to the Jubilee Line). Southern Trains runs direct services to London Bridge with a journey time of around 20 minutes.
