Description

New River Head was originally the headquarters of the Metropolitan Water Board, later Thames Water. It was converted 19 years ago into private apartments. It retains the grand communal parts and some elegant features of this once company headquarters including sweeping staircases and a grand communal hall. There is the addition of a well equipped gym for the use by the residents together with a large landscaped garden with dedicated barbeque and children's play areas, a rarity in Central London. There is also the use of the Oak Room, a Grade II listed original boardroom that can be booked for private functions.

Entering the apartment is a welcoming hallway which leads to the uniquely light reception room, particularly bright due to the triple aspect and strikingly large windows. Above the reception is a mezzanine study. The separate kitchen is accessed from the reception room. It has an open doorway creating a semi open plan and sociable feel.

Also accessed from the hallway are two double bedrooms, one with ensuite, as well as a second main bathroom with a bath/shower.The master bedroom benefits from built in storage.

Throughout the apartment there are beautiful parquet wood floors. The apartment has been strikingly well looked after by the current owner and is a truly unique and special apartment in this iconic development.

This apartment comes with one secure off-street parking space.
