About the Apartment
This has to be one of the most impressive penthouse apartments in Clerkenwell. An exceptional space designed and reconfigured by the current owners who have created a dynamic and individual home to suit City living. The entrance is a spacious area with an abstract, bronze contemporary effect wall feature giving a warm an inviting ambience.
From the hallway one heads into the kitchen/dining room. A breath-taking space over 36ft – 11 meters in length and most certainly one of the finest kitchens. White units, Miele appliances, marble flooring and pale grey stonework surfaces with a space that can comfortably take a dining table seating twelve.
There is access onto a roof terrace which has wonderful views towards the City and London’s West End. On the far side of the kitchen are the sleeping quarters accessed from the entrance hall. A fine principal bedroom with ample built-in wardrobes leads onto the terrace as well as having its own ensuite shower room. There is a second double bedroom with built in wardrobes and ensuite shower room, a further room which is currently used as a home office and a guest bathroom.
A sculptured and very striking, wide spiral staircase leads from the kitchen to the reception room.
An astounding space with windows facing North, East, South and West and a view that will take your breath away. A comfortable space for entertaining that leads onto a delightful roof terrace which must be one of the very best in Clerkenwell with views towards the financial district, Barbican and Central London. The apartment benefits from underfloor heating, air cooling system, secure underground parking and porter.
