Property Description

Full description

Tenure: Freehold

This modern two-bedroom house has been completely redesigned by its current owner, using contemporary finishes and materials to exacting effect. Lime Close is a quiet pedestrianised street, that sits behind the wharfs and warehouses that characterise Wapping and St Katherines’ traditionally maritime architecture.

The house lies on the edge of a quiet purpose-built development, and there is parking adjacent. Entry is to the open plan-living spaces. The kitchen is at the heart of this large room, with recycled marble terrazzo cement worktops and smart walnut-fronted cabinetry. A half-height wall wraps around the kitchen, to neatly divide it from the living and dining spaces beyond. There is a large pantry and a low bench that runs the length of the dining table for neat storage and seating.

The rear of the house is a new extension, the addition of which has brought light into the whole of the ground floor with a series of skylights and black-framed windows and doors that open onto the garden. Porcelain floor tiles run throughout.

Upstairs are two bedrooms and a family bathroom, which has views towards The Shard and Tower Bridge.

Wapping sits on the north bank of the Thames, and has a long maritime history. As such, the high street is lined with warehouses that served the docks. ‘Waterman’s stairs’ lead onto the riverbanks and there are excellent waterfront pubs.

Cinnamon Coffee is en route to the station, and is good for coffee and cake. The area around St Katherine’s docks has lots of restaurants and there are plentiful small parks. Wapping Woods is a favourite local spot for dog-walkers, sunbathers and wildlife spotters, while King Edward VI park has tennis courts, children’s play areas and is adjacent to the banks of the Thames. The open spaces of Shadwell Basin Outdoor Activity Centre are also nearby. The Thames path winds east through Wapping and takes in wonderful views, converted dock warehouses and pubs, including the local Prospect of Whitby, a firm favourite with Dockland enthusiasts, tourists and locals alike.

Lime Close is an eleven-minute walk from Wapping station, where Overground trains run on to Canada Water for connections to the Jubilee Line, and towards South and East London. It is slightly further to Tower Hill and Tower Gateway for the Circle and District Lines and DLR respectively.
