***Please quote JBH on enquiry***A tremendous two bedroom second floor apartment forming part of the desirable Firestation development. The property is arranged to provide superb lateral space with high celings and generous sash windows to create a great home. There is an open plan kitchen recpetion room, two double bedrooms and a well designed bathroom. This unique building features a communal roof terrace and communal courtyard as well as cycle storage.
The building dates back to the Victorian times 1868 and has a fascinating histrory. Grade II listed, it was orginally designed as a firestation for the metropolitain police by architect Edward Cresy and later Robert Pearsall.
This truly unqiue and fascintaing building has an extremly intetesting history. There were stables for the horses and the foreman had superintenddant were housed above. There was even a dormatory for the single firemen and a "rooms" for the married ones. Even the viewing tower remains on the roof top and as a resident you may still climb the steep tunnel fire ladder to the top to take in the views. Now converted into these rather extra special apartments, an opporunity to purchase an extraordinary piece of time.
Very centrally located, the firestation is sandwiched between the fashionable Elephant and Castle and desirable Kennington, both serve for great tube and overground coneections, with an abundance of shops, bars and resturants. The vast open spaces of Kennington Park are within easy reach.
