St John Street, Clerkenwell EC1

By on Wednesday, February 5th, 2020 in Lettings, Property of the week.

This is a fantastic furnished apartment with its own private terrace offering glorious rooftop views in central Clerkenwell.

About the apartment

The apartment is located on the second floor (with lift) and accommodation comprises entrance hall, reception room with exposed brickwork, wood floors and door to private terrace, kitchen alcove, main bedroom with en-suite shower room, second double bedroom, bathroom.  Internal floorspace extends to 938 sq ft (87 sqm).  The best part is that it is in a small private building with just 4 homes so tenants are likely to get to know their neighbours.

About the building

The building is in a pleasant architectural style having been constructed in 1925-26 by Walter Gladding and Co as a warehouse where the architect was Donald Aver Duncan of Percy Pubbs.  St John Street runs from Angel in the north to Smithfield Market by Farringdon and was originally a cattle run from the fields of Barnet.

About the area of Clerkenwell

I am yet to meet anybody who moved out of the area because they didn’t like it; if they do, it is usually because of a major life change such as new job or major change in homelife.  Much of Clerkenwell’s appreciation comes from the convenience of its location and amenities.  Its gentrification to a residential area commenced in the 1990s and the area has continued to evolve ever since.

From a range of street food markets to fine dining, foodies are very happy here.  Some of the best artisan coffee is available here from Red Brick to Caravan.  Clerkenwell is home to some of London’s finest warehouse conversions to provide homes commonly known as lofts such as this one.
