3 Bedroom flat for sale on The Paragon, Bermondsey, SE1

Under Offer

A wonderfully bright and extraordinary 2628 sq.ft. loft, set over top two floors within The Paragon - a beautifully converted Victorian school house within gated, landscaped grounds on a quiet residential street.

This former Victorian School was converted into an imaginative development of spacious loft apartments and houses. The original Paragon, designed by Michael Searles, was built in the late 1700s for the Rolls Estate at the east end of the New Kent Road. The original building was demolished in 1898 to make way for a London School Board school, which was later converted by Sapcote Real Lofts.

This rare and outstanding, 2628 square feet, penthouse apartment is situated in the centre of The Paragon building facing south, flooding the whole space with light. It further benefits from two private terraces on the roof of the building overlooking the rooftops and treetops of the surrounding area, offering a very tranquil environment.

The main living space is quite simply enormous with cathedral like ceiling heights measuring to 7 meters. Original features are in abundance from original parquet flooring to wooden beams allowing the space to nod to its school time era. This is such a unique home and needs to be seen to be fully appreciated it.

The accommodation comprises of a simply stunning and oversized reception room with an open plan kitchen and powder room on the right of the centre stage living area and bedroom and main bathroom on the left hand side. Unusually, this property also comes with two front doors and can be accessed through either side of the property through separate entrances to the building. Spiral staircase leads to a very generous mezzanine which also doubles up as a viewing gallery and splits the bedroom spaces to the right and left of the apartment. To the right, a substantial bedroom with en-suite and access to one of the terraces is positioned and on the left another bedroom with a study is found, opening up again to another terrace.

This apartment is also offered with a Share of Freehold and an allocated parking space with electric charging point.

The Paragon also benefits from private parking and pretty communal gardens providing a very friendly place to live, with a great community feel and regular garden gatherings between the residents. It is located just outside the congestion zone, but also within walking distance of the River Thames and The City. Nearby Elephant & Castle is undergoing huge redevelopment with new green spaces, shops, bars, restaurants and even the Italian Artisan Food Markets at Mercato Metropolitano. It is within walking distance of Elephant & Castle and Borough underground stations (Northern and Bakerloo lines and Thameslink services to Blackfriars, Farringdon & St Pancras) providing quick and easy access to the City and West End. Amazing shopping, bars and restaurants can also be found at Shad Thames, Bermondsey Street and Borough Market.
