An outstanding New York style loft apartment oozing with character, set within a Grade II listed building, which is perched near the banks of the river Thames.
The property is a fabulous entertaining space with the first floor dedicated entirely to an enormous open-plan kitchen/reception room, extending over 930 sq/ft with access to the terrace. This room has high vaulted ceilings which expose the original timber trusses, a large skylight and the triple aspect windows flood the room with natural light making the space truly unique.
There are four double bedrooms; a luxurious main suite with an indulgent bathroom complete with bath and separate shower, a second bedroom with an en suite shower room, and two further bedrooms with use of a separate shower room. The fourth bedroom has been configured to allow for alternative use as a home office with a separate entrance if desired. The apartment has a second reception offering flexible use as either a formal drawing room, media room or fifth bedroom.
Pepy house is named after Samuel Pepys, an administrator of the navy of England and Member of Parliament who is most famous for the diary he kept for a decade while still a relatively young man. Pepys rose to be the Chief Secretary to the Admiralty under both King Charles II and King James II through patronage, hard work, and his talent for administration. His influence and reform at the Admiralty were important in the early professionalization of the Royal Navy.
The building is of significant historical merit as it is on the site of the Bear Pit, as mentioned in Samuel Pepys’ diary. The Bear Pit was the facility for bear-baiting, bull-baiting, and other "animal sports" in the London area during the 16th and 17th centuries, from the Elizabethan era to the English Restoration period. Samuel Pepys visited the venue in 1666 and described it as "a rude and nasty pleasure".
Located on London’s Bankside, Pepys House is ideally situated with a diverse range of world-class attractions, fine restaurants, and cafes all within easy reach including: Shakespeare’s New Globe, The Tate Modern, Borough Market, St. Paul’s Cathedral, Royal Festival Hall and the Oxo Tower. The Millennium Bridge, just 350m away, makes for a convenient commute to The City, whether it's by cycling or foot, whilst nearby London Bridge Station provides access to Canary Wharf, the West End and beyond.
