Vauxhall Vinegar Factory

17.06.21

Available to buy for the first time since 1985, Chestertons are delighted to bring to the market this magnificent four-bedroom split level penthouse on the top floor of the former Beaufoy Vinegar Factory. Also referred to as The Vat House, the property is only moments away from Vauxhall’s plethora of world class restaurants and pubs, making it the perfect choice for house hunters with a passion for history and all things culinary.

Archives reveal that The Vat House forms part of Regents Bridge Gardens, which was originally built in the early 19th century as Beaufoy Vinegar Yard. The first Beaufoy to enter the distilling business was Mark, who in 1730 had been apprenticed to Joseph James, a distiller in Bristol. In 1743 Mark married Elizabeth Hanbury and, three years later, settled at Cuper’s Gardens.

The business was handed down for generations and, in 1812, John Henry Beaufoy moved the brewery from Cuper’s Gardens to its current location in South Lambeth. On 10 May 1941, a bomb destroyed parts of the building and was finally closed in 1970. Prior to its closure, almost 300 people worked in the yard and offices with vinegar production reaching millions of gallons each year. Worcester sauce, mustard and mayonnaise were also distributed from here.

Fast forward to 1985, the site was rejuvenated and converted into the sought-after gated residential development that it is today. The current vendor bought off-plan as a shell in 1986, and it has never been on the market before.

Residents will benefit from direct lift access to the apartments’ 2,655 sqft, set over the third and fourth floor of The Vat House. The 30-foot reception room features spectacular 5.25 metre vaulted wood ceilings and opens onto a 50sqm private, south-facing roof terrace with breath-taking views of the London skyline. The four bedrooms are located on the third floor, next to two bathrooms and a spacious utility room. Last but not least, the new vendors will have access to the onsite residents’ only swimming pool and gym as well as two allocated spaces within the secure, covered car park.

The property is on the market with Chestertons for £3,000,000. For details, please contact Chestertons’ Battersea Park office on +44 (0)20 3040 8700 or visit https://www.chestertons.com/en-gb/property-to-buy/gb/south+lambeth/hea196324
