Living is easy
Once a Victorian tea and coffee warehouse, Wapping Riverside now houses 37 luxury apartments with panoramic views of the Thames. No wonder they’re selling like the proverbial hot cakes
Where once it housed tea shipped over from China, India and Ceylon, and coffee from Africa and South America, today the beautiful five-storey Victorian warehouse that occupies 136 to 140 Wapping High Street is home to 37 luxury new apartments, with the most stunning views of the River Thames.
No expense has been spared in transforming the Grade II-listed building into such a sought-after place to live. Indeed, only two apartments remain unsold, so if you’ve developed a taste for riverside living, you’ll need to be fast.
The development comes complete with spacious, decked balconies (plenty of room for a table and chairs to soak up that gorgeous cityscape), a super-stylish entrance foyer with concierge, and even a landscaped rooftop terrace with seated lounge areas, offering even better views, if that were possible. The apartments themselves are light and bright, with an open-plan reception, dining and kitchen area from which you can access the balcony. The master bedroom comes with en suite, and also opens on to the terrace, while the guest bedroom is well proportioned, with a boutique hotel feel.
As evidenced in the sleek and glamorous show apartment (by multi-award winning Argent Design, to echo the ebb and flow of the Thames and the skyline above), they really are the ultimate in cool, urban living, perfectly combining original features with five-star, contemporary functionality. Prices are from £1,350,000. galliardhomes.com
