If you are seriously searching for the dream loft, we think this might just be it.
This dignified Edwardian building is symmetrically designed and pleasing to the eye. It combines rich red and glazed brick work with relief columns and decorative pediment entrance framing, inspired by the Venetian architect Andrea Palladio, more commonly known as Palladian Architecture.
Home, at the beginning of the 20th century to Chater Lea Limited who were the champion manufacturers of bicycle, motorbike and cars, it now houses some of the finest homes in Clerkenwell. The apartment offers an imaginative vision of living, allowing an incoming owner the freedom to create and adapt the space to suit their living environment, eliminating the defined spaces most commonly found in a traditional house.
With over 2,000 sq ft of space on one level the accommodation is uncomplicated and effortless with an easy way of living removing long narrow hallways and staircases.
It overflows with period and industrial features from exposed brick work, huge original windows, chunky cast iron radiators and wide wooden floor boards.
The accommodation comprises two large bedrooms, eclectic bathroom, guest cloakroom, laundry room and open plan kitchen living area, not to mention the enormous amount of storage which is found throughout the apartment. The reception space which is flooded with light is quite outstanding with an L-shape living/dining space which is one of the best I have seen in Clerkenwell.
Located between Clerkenwell and Shoreditch the loft has easy access to diverse as well as designer shops, exciting markets as well as Waitrose which is literally on your door step.
The location has become the must to, move to destination in Central London with CNN European Network, HBO and Time Warner moving their headquarters locally with reportedly over 5,000 tech companies located close to the Old Street roundabout.
Clerkenwell offers (in my opinion) the best yet most diverse choice of restaurants in London, with the option to eat a la carte to the very best street food.
You will not have to worry about transport as Barbican and Farringdon Stations (Circle, Metropolitan and Hammersmith & City Lines) as well as mainline access are both a short walk away, and with the opening of the Elizabeth line predicted in late 2019, there will be direct access to four of London’s International airports and direct links to Canary Wharf and London’s West End.
Asking Price: £1,995,000
