In the vibrant pocket of south London known as Brixton Hill, the upper level of a former bakery is now an expansive warehouse conversion that offers a sweet treat of old and new. 

The reimagined residence offers an idyllic, loft-like aesthetic with glazed Victorian tiles, original cast-iron radiators, and exposed wooden trusses.

Upon entry, a private hallway leads through a large, timber sliding door to a massive open space that houses the flat’s primary gathering areas, including a well-equipped corner bar. Glazed Victorian tiles wrap the walls of the living room—which extends more than 40 feet in length—complementing the dark plywood floors and exposed trusses. 

Capped with a vaulted timber ceiling, the 40-foot-long living room caters to easy entertaining.

Timber-clad cathedral ceilings further enhance the sense of space in the 3,600-square-foot dwelling. The semi-open kitchen sits to the north of the plan and features all-new appliances, including a Thermador range and Sub-Zero fridge. Stainless-steel cabinets and surfaces pay homage to the building’s industrial past.

Steel-framed Crittall windows line the front wall, drawing plenty of natural light inside. 

A small reading area in the far corner of the living room features original built-ins.

In total, the single-family apartment offers four bedrooms—one of which features paddle stairs that lead to a private outdoor terrace. Another bedroom is perched on the mezzanine level and looks out onto the main living space through a glazed wall.  

Exposed brick continues into the kitchen, where creamy-hued marble tiles clad the floor.

The semi-open kitchen features two points of access, as well as a cut out window.

The Morrish Road warehouse conversion offers convenient access to a number of London hot spots, including Ritzy Cinema, Electric Brixton, and Market Row. It is also just a short walk from several green spaces, such as Rush Common and Brockwell Park. Scroll ahead to see more of the south London apartment.

Open-tread timber stairs lead to an airy mezzanine level, which features a bedroom and bath.

The lofted sleeping area sits behind a glazed glass door. The three additional bedrooms are located on the main floor.

The view from the mezzanine level showcases an elongated skylight that spans the roofline.

Morrish Road in London, England, is currently listed for £2,650,000 (approximately $3,586,404 USD) by The Modern House.
