This impressive corner sub-penthouse has not come to the market since the current owners purchased it brand new in 2002.
About the building
Allen House was developed by Landmark Developments, Italian developers who were part of the early movement of breathing new residential life into Clerkenwell. This quarter of London near the Italian Church was a magnet for Italian immigrants in the 1960s and was then known as “Little Italy”. The community is now more dispersed but a certain degree of homing still takes place for baptisms, weddings and funerals. It was therefore a natural progression for these Italian developers to spot an opportunity for change on their doorstep and stamping their telltale designer flair in the process.
About the apartment
Features include full height doors to enhance the sense of space, a designer open plan Italian kitchen with a nod to the 1950s retro style, contemporary bathrooms that have stood the test of time and an abundance of light coming into the entire property from the floor to ceiling doors to the wraparound decked terrace.
The views from each of the rooms are classic London rooftops in the Mary Poppins “chim-chimney” style with the corner aspect from the reception room being particularly special.
With two double bedrooms, two bathrooms and plenty of storage, prospective tenants will also get the enjoyment and use of 262 sq ft of private terrace as well as 817 sq ft of internal floorspace. The property is available to rent on a furnished basis.
