Gone to sea
All aboard that’s coming aboard! Not so long ago, St Katherine Docks looked rather different. Here ships docked and departed, loaded and unloaded, their holds groaning with luxury goods – ivory, spices, cigars – worth many fortunes. And while the goods have gone, the luxury hasn’t. A warehouse conversion with a view across the waters, we don’t think you’ll be trading this home in a hurry. Every last brick is drenched in daylight, from the vaulted ceilings down to the softly carpeted floors. So, kick back on the balcony and see the sails stirring in the wind, or weigh anchor for town. For there’s a tide to be caught.
The bounding wave
A farming family from leafy Essex, your hosts love the land. But they also love the sea, and like nothing better than a morning tea on their balcony, with Dutch barges and old sailing ships a-sway below.
Depths within depths
With its original clock tower and wrought-iron colonnade, the first sight of Ivory House is a glimpse into history. But this home is far from tethered to its past. Flow inside and you’ll find a wealth of daylight and walls of exposed brick. Beneath the vaulted ceilings sit busts, sculpture and artwork, while the marina glistens below. So let the fresh breeze in as you open the balcony doors, or retire to your (elegant) sleeping quarters. With shops and cafes just downstairs, and the City round the corner, it won’t be long before you find your sea legs.
