Stout & Litchfield's dramatic River Thames house with one of a kind views

Ferry Street, designed by renowned architects Stout & Litchfield, rose out of the derelict industries of the dockyards during the 1970s to become one of Europe's most architecturally significant self-build projects.

Perhaps better known for designing New House, Shipton-Under-Wychwood as featured in Stanley Kubric's 'A Clockwork Orange', the architects turned their attention to designing the three attached luxury riverside houses between 1976-79, now Grade II listed and one of which is available for sale. A six-bedroom house and oubuildings measuring 5,144 sq ft including: undercroft, self-contained annexe flat, and single garage. This much treasured family home is sold with potential for further modernisation, remodelling and refurbishment. The opportunity exists to turn this post-modern house, back into its opulent self. The south-facing house is on the River Thames, has extraordinary views and is within striking distance of the financial centre of The City of London and Canary Wharf.

The interior design remains untouched, displaying many bold original designs popular in the 1970s (e.g. William Morris and Renee Macintosh). Some plant and electrics have been updated in recent years.

Approached through a private gated courtyard with high yellow stock brick walls. A single garage parking space is retained in the ownership. A winding path leads into the garden, offering a welcome sense of peace and separation from the bustle of city life.

The entrance hall with separate cloakroom leads to a ground floor study with shower room and conservatory. A spiral staircase steps down to an undercroft, used for wine storage.

On the first floor a landing acts as the centre point between fully fitted kitchen (with larder), dual aspect drawing room (with central fireplace) and dining room, the ideal arrangement for entertaining. The drawing and dining rooms have balconies over the water's edge. The views are stunning, though large aluminium and timber framed double glazed windows / sliding doors. This maximises the availability of natural light and feeling of connection between internal and external environments. A timber staircase continues to the second floor, with four double bedrooms, two bathrooms and airing cupboard. The arrangement could be adapted to an en-suite. A study area is positioned off the staircase.

A second staircase leads to the third-floor principal bedroom suite. An open vaulted lounge has full-width, south-facing roof terrace with extraordinary views. This room leads onto a double bedroom, dressing room and en-suite. A vaulted mezzanine attic storage area has been used to enhance the sense of height. The ceilings are slat boarded with adding to the Scandinavian-style through the interior.

Prominant achitectural features to the exterior include: diagonal split pitch apex roof, shape geometric lines, cross-wall pre-cast concrete facade and Westmorland Slate tile roof, infused with triangular clerestory windows.

A separate self-contained annexe has an open plan kitchen, sitting and dining area, two bedrooms and a family bathroom. Ideal accommodation for guests and staff.
