The Morocco Store
A rare opportunity to acquire a two/three bedroom apartment of great character, charm and warmth in this highly regarded former Victorian spice warehouse on Leathermarket Street, overlooking leathermarket gardens. The building was converted in 1997 and an extension built creating what is now The Morroco Store. The new part of the building won the brick design award in 1998, as it blends seamlessly in to the original warehouse, of which this property is part. It retains many original features including exposed brickwork, high ceilings, beams and wood flooring. The Morocco Store is a landmark in the area, and has become almost synonymous with Bermondsey street and the warehouses of great character that make this part of Southwark so popular. The property comprises briefly double aspect reception room with curved walls and exposed brickwork, open plan kitchen, two double bedrooms, third bedroom/ study, cloakroom and bathroom. There is also under floor storage that may be sacrificed if one wanted to reconfigure the layout creating a separate kitchen, increasing the size of the reception room.
Bermondsey Street is well known for its superb selection of cafes, boutiques, restaurants, bars and art galleries, and is within short walking distance of Borough Market, London Bridge Station, the River Thames and the City and within easy reach of Central London, the West End and Canary Wharf. Remaining lease is 974 years, service charge is approximately £3000 p.a. and the ground rent is £150 p.a
