Harrods Estates offers an impressive three-bedroom apartment in the former Harrods Depository in leafy Barnes
Leading prime London estate agent Harrods Estates is proud to offer an elegant three-bedroom apartment in one of the original Harrods depository buildings, Charles Harrod Court, at Harrods Village in Barnes.
Situated on the south bank of the Thames in SW13, the depository was built on the site of an old soap factory in 1894 as a storage centre for the larger items that could not be taken into the world-famous Harrods store in Knightsbridge. The salmon pink, terracotta clad buildings date back to 1914 and are Grade II listed.
In 2000, Berkeley Homes undertook the conversion of the buildings into luxury apartments, penthouses and townhouses, transforming it into one of the finest and most desirable addresses in south-west London.
A first-floor 2,238 square foot apartment is now for sale with Harrods Estates, which blends modern and elegant finishes with original features such as the beautiful Harrods full-height green curved windows with matching shutters, high ceilings and generous proportions.
Residents will appreciate the spacious entrance hall that leads into the grand reception room and discreet terrace. The modern kitchen-come-breakfast room has a separate utility room, and a guest cloakroom can be accessed from the entrance hall.
The generous master bedroom suite has plenty of storage, a separate dressing area and en-suite bathroom. The second bedroom is well equipped for a double bed and includes built-in wardrobes and a separate bathroom. The third bedroom is ideal for guests or a live-in nanny, with further built-in wardrobes and a spacious en-suite bathroom.
Shirley Humphrey, Director at Harrods Estates commented: “This stunning apartment has so much to offer, from its well-designed layout and high ceilings, to its grand original features and fascinating history. It is rare that we can offer an apartment in this historic building and we expect that it will be popular with someone who is keen for a village lifestyle in a London location.”
This secure and exclusive gated development benefits from private landscaped communal gardens, 24-hour porter and security services, car parking facilities and a superb leisure complex that includes an outstanding 25-metre swimming pool, gymnasium, sauna, steam room and spa bath.
Popular with affluent families due to its close proximity to central London and excellent schools, Barnes offers a distinct village feel, with beautiful historic architecture.
