Apartment 1, 70 Renforth Street London -  (2).jpg

Situated in a former pump house, dating back to the early 1900s, in Canada Water is a striking mezzanine apartment, which has been dramatically transformed by the current owners. Now available to purchase through prime London agents Anderson Rose for £1.4 million, the 1,728 sq. ft. home is a real masterpiece, with the perfect blend of modern features and original components of the grand Grade II listed Victorian pumping station.


Originally converted into a private residence in 2000, the current owners have transformed the home into its current configuration. The initial conversion work focused on utilising the original brick walls, which tastefully blended with oak parquet floors, with original steel beams and large windows that fill the space with natural light.

The current owners undertook extensive upgrade works to maximise space, whilst further accentuating the industrial heritage of the apartment. Using brilliant engineering to great visual effect, updates include a decorative, cast-iron, bespoke mezzanine with matching balustrade that is striking and unique and in keeping with the spirit of the building, whilst adding an additional 250 sq. ft. of living space. 


Where once there was empty air space there is now a bespoke copper bar, with an enviable range of bottles, plus bar stools, comfy leather armchairs and a piano. The mezzanine gallery is accessed by a staircase, which runs up the side wall and features built-in spacious concealed storage.

A well-appointed kitchen occupies the space underneath and features a generous island separating the kitchen from the living area, while bespoke encaustic tiles reflect the metalwork patterns that accentuate the mezzanine structure. 


The open-plan living area benefits from voluminous ceiling heights and is spacious enough for a large dining table and lounge area. At the other end there is a further open plan mezzanine study area. The property also boasts two large bedrooms, a gym room and two high end bathrooms. 


Converted from a third of the old engine room, huge steel beams run through and brace the space on the first floor, which is dedicated to the Principal bedroom suite.

Robin Chalk, Sales Manager at Anderson Rose, commented: 


“This is a truly stunning apartment that has been further enhanced by the current owners. Abounding with original parts and features, that were once a crucial part of the original pump house, the home has a genuine industrial style that makes it so unique and attractive. 


“Due to the excellent location and transport links from the nearby Canada Water station, this is the perfect property for a single professional or young couple that are looking for a cool and notable place to live.”

The Pump House was built in 1902 by the London Hydraulic Power Company, which was established to manage a network of hydraulic water power that was exclusively for the homes and businesses of London. At its peak, it managed 180 miles of pipes supplying power for the majority of the city.  


One of the first to be operational in Victorian London the Pump House flaunted state-of-the art engineering, with immense iron beams, a majestic engine room with lofty arched windows right along the roof and oculi in the ends, plus a glorious octagonal chimney. All of which are still present and preserved today. The LHP Company operated until 1977 when the pipe network was sold to Mercury Communications to be used for telecoms.
