Property of the week: A piece of London’s industrial legacy

June 28, 2019
Dunbar Wharf (Unique Property Company)

 

Formally used by a Scottish wine and spirit merchant, this 19th-century warehouse has been transformed into a versatile living space.

 

Dunbar Wharf is located on the famous Narrow Street in East London and runs parallel to the River Thames. Just a short walk to Canary Wharf, this street is described as peaceful (that of course according to city life standards).

The Grade II listed building, from the outside, looks mostly untouched. It is said that the owners tried their hardest to preserve the integrity and history of the property.

 

This follows through inside with many original features, including exposed timber, brickwork, iron and steel, being retained.

The most fascinating thing about this property is the uncommon private double door garage – previously used as the old loading dock! This is accessed from the street or through the entrance hall.

 

This one of a kind property is on the market for a guide price of £2,950,000 via Unique Property Company.
