This one is for Carlos, because it’s in London, and Carlos is nothing short of a full-fledged anglophile. It’s also for him because it’s the converted upper level of a bakery. And as everyone who reads this blog knows, Carlos loves to bake. He considers himself a sort of MasterBaker™, and, if he could, he’d be MasterBaking™ morning noon and night. I hope you like it, baby, because it’s for sale for only $3.6 million USD!!!
This former bakery is large, with over 3,600 square feet with four bedrooms and a grand open plan great room with white tiled walls and original beamed ceiling retrofitted with skylights.
The loft is accessed via a communal staircase that leads to a private vestibule that opens to a bedroom to the left—an en suite space with access to a roof terrace via a set of “paddle steps”—or right, through a large timber sliding door to the living space. This great room extends over 40 feet long, with soaring timber-clad cathedral ceilings, exposed trusses with plywood floors and original cast-iron radiators set against walls of glazed Victorian tiles. Light pours in from a row of seven steel-framed Crittall windows and a series of skylights overhead. A mezzanine level bedroom with a dressing room is up a flight of open-tread timber stairs and is set behind a glazed wall. A shower room occupies one corner of the room.
The kitchen is on the north side of the home, semi-open to the main room, and is a full-on chef’s kitchen with high-end appliances, stainless steel cabinets and surfaces, and a marble floor.
There are two further bedrooms to the east of the plan, one with a large en suite double shower room with double sinks and slate tiling. The fourth bedroom has access to a second staircase that heads down to a street level exit.
The home, which sits on Morrish Road—a residential street—is a short walk from Brixton, a lively area known for its food and bar scene, the nearby Brixton Village, Market Row and Acre Lane are all highly recommended as is the newly opened is , a grand renovated 1876 Bon Marche building that now houses collaborative workspaces, a Pure Vinyl record shop, a community Post Office and Canova Hall restaurant and bar. The green spaces of Rush Common and Brockwell Park are also nearby, with Brockwell Park featuring a lido with a 50-metre pool, an art deco pavilion, café, tennis courts and a walled garden.
And again, all yours for $3.6M; the perfect MasterBaker™ home.
