Location: London, England

Price: £1,650,000 (approximately $2,005,682 USD)

Architect: Space Group Architects (after a 1990 renovation by David Quigley)

Footprint: 2,005 square feet (three bedrooms, two bath)

From the Agent: "This spectacular three-bedroom, loft-style apartment extends over two floors of an old Victorian omnibus station in Hopewell Yard in Camberwell. The building was renovated in 1990 by David Quigley, and the interiors have been carefully designed by the owner in collaboration with Space Group Architects to maximize volume, light, and impact. The apartment sits between the green expanse of Burgess Park and the Camberwell Green Conservation Area."

Tucked away from the street, the apartment is accessed through a private courtyard.

Black-framed glass entry doors lead to the open-plan living, kitchen, and dining areas. 

"The design of the space nods to the building’s industrial past," notes the agent. "There are black steel beams and timber roof trusses, brick walls are left exposed throughout, and the concrete floor flows across the main level."

The contemporary comes complete with a stainless-steel worktop and black bespoke cabinetry.

The dining area is bathed in natural light thanks to a glazed terrace above, as well as glass doors, windows, and skylights.

 The secluded terrace on the upper level is accessed via a steel walkway.

Hopewell Yard II in London, England, is currently listed for £1,650,000 (approximately $2,005,682 USD) by The Modern House.
