Spacious loft apartments in The Paragon Building, London


Regency architect Michael Searles was famous as an English commercial architect of large houses, particularly in London. His most notable achievement is perhaps The Paragon in Blackheath, London.

The architect built another lesser known Paragon before 1787 on the south side of New Kent Road, near the junction with Old Kent Road. This consisted of six blocks of semi-detached houses linked by a single-storey colonnade. It was later extended to a complete semicircle fronting New Kent Road by the addition of a pair of houses at each end. It was demolished in the 1890s to be replaced by more modest housing and a London School Board School. Around 2000 the school was redeveloped by Sapcote Real lofts which has since been converted into apartments and been given the name The Paragon.

Today the luxury London property is an imaginative development of spacious loft apartments and houses with well-maintained communal gardens set behind secure entry-gates, a porter and secure off street parking.

The apartment itself is a vast loft spanning almost 3,000 square foot of internal space boasting heaps of character fabulous interior design including exposed brick walls, pillars, beams, original sash windows and high ceilings. The large spacious reception is ideal for entertaining and with triple aspect windows as well as sky lights the property is extremely bright throughout. The apartment is sold with secure gated parking and a private section of a fabulous roof terrace perfect for alfresco dining.
