Entirely redesigned, sublime and very large, two double bedroom apartment found on the second floor of impressive Grade II listed Wyberton House, the former Italianate-style hotel particulier of renowned Thames Embankments engineer William Webster. Built in the 1860s and offering a clear view over the City and Canary Wharf.
Redesigned in 2018-2019 by an interior designer, the property which spans 87 sqm (937sq.ft) is in excellent decorative order, benefitting from a unique 3.6m ceiling height throughout and with generous, sleek, made-to-measure wardrobes, shelving and storage, with additional storage available in the houses basement. It comprises two unusually large and quiet, garden-facing bedrooms, a 29 sqm living room, a kitchen with dine-in potential and a marble-tiled bathroom. The kitchen and bathroom, lighting, electrics and plumbing have been entirely replaced and the large sash windows draught-proofed to improve insulation. The original pine wood floorboards have been restored and cleared to bring more light into what is an already well-lit flat. The front door has also had its security features enhanced. A large communal garden with plenty of space for playing, parties or barbecues and an allocated gated parking space which can be rented out (currently rented for £109 per month tenant can be terminated or passed to purchaser upon sale) complete the property.
The property is sold with a share of the freehold and the service charges have recently been reduced following improvements in the management companys operations. The management company arranges for weekly cleaning and gardening and oversees any required works. Full internal redecoration to the communal areas and overhaul of the garden were completed in 2018-2019.
