Description(Reference number: 79421)
Rows of converted warehouses give London Bridge its distinctive character, and this intriguing home, with its exposed brick walls, lofty ceilings and original beams, has plenty of drama. Blocks of daring yellow take you from the living area to the bedroom, and a wide book shelf doubles as a dividing wall. The artworks range from pixelated portraits to pop art interiors, and there are several well-placed viewing points – the sitting room’s plush corner sofa, the bedroom’s leather armchair – from which to take it all in.
Your host is a TV and film director, and his takes him abroad frequently. But he finds his London home a particularly inspiring place to work, and you’ll spot many marks of his trade – drama books, art and several notable awards.
First impressions aside, Tyers Gate demands a close-up view – you might admire your reflection in the glossy dark wood kitchen counters, or count each of the sofa’s differently designed cushions. And while the worldly sculptures range from tribal carvings to pearlescent glass pyramids, this home’s brickwork and monochrome floor tiles are stylishly London – and just as design-conscious as surrounding London Bridge. The fashion and textiles museum and local art gallery, The White Cube, are just a stroll away, with the colourful South Bank only a little further.
