A wonderfully unique 652 sqft split-level conversion with an interesting history dating back to the 1890s. Fully refurbished to a high standard, a lantern-style roof bathes the living area with natural light. It has allocated parking, wood floors and is conveniently located.
The double sized bedroom, attractively tiled bathroom with window and substantial storage cupboard are on the first floor entrance level. Going up the stairs you enter the main living space with high ceilings, beams with industrial steel features, in-built shelving and 270 degree windows in the upper roof area. The well-finished kitchen has plenty of counter space.
It is one of the few period buildings in the area and was built in the 1890s by James Adair McConnochie who was the chief engineer of the Surrey Commercial Dock Company and responsible for establishing Canada Dock, as well as the attractive Dock Offices building near what is now Canada Water Station. Originally built as the Grain Office and later becoming the National Dock Labour Board Office, it was fully refurbished and converted into 12 residential units by Redrow Homes in 1997. About half of the original structure remains. It is often incorrectly referred to as a former Police Station.
The tranquil surroundings include South Dock Marina, Greenland Dock and the Thames Path. Nearby is Surrey Docks Fitness and Watersports Centre, together with the shops, cafes and green spaces of the recently developed Greenland Place, including Tesco Express and Plough Way Cafe. A scenic walk takes you to Canada Water Station (Jubilee Line & London Overground, Zone 2) and Surrey Quays Station (London Overground, Zone 2). The River Taxi services from Greenland Pier also offer an alternative way of commuting with Canary Wharf reachable in 19 minutes’ door-to-door.
The service charge is approximately £1,700 per annum and includes the water rates. The ground rent is £75 per annum and the lease has 102 years remaining. There is also the option to buy the share of freehold.
