Overall Description

This live/work studio is on the first floor of Colman's Wharf, an imposing red-brick Victorian grain warehouse, that was converted into individual units in the 1980's. The property has a large open-plan space with high ceilings (10'4), two arched windows to the front and double doors leading out onto the balcony, which overlooks the centre of the Spratt's Complex - a former dog biscuit factory - of which it is a part (see Wikipedia for more information on the building's history). There is a small bathroom in one corner, accessed from the entrance hall, and a kitchenette with sink in the main open-plan space. There are stairs and a lift leading from the communal hallway to the first floor and an allocated parking space (marked No. 26) in the car-park below. The main space is sub-divided by timber partitions and storage units, which the new owners could remove if they so wish, and the property is in need of complete modernisation. Probate is granted, there is no chain and the property is being sold as seen. The studio is around 825 square feet in area. The lease is 999 years from 1985.
