One of the finest penthouses in Clerkenwell.
About the Apartment
This really is the most wonderful and exceptional loft apartment. The generous accommodation is truly extraordinary, with a central grand reception room with open plan kitchen, dining and living areas. There are sliding doors which lead onto a landscaped south west facing roof terrace with an irrigation system, outdoor lighting and great views of the Clerkenwell and City skyline.
Both bedrooms are a good size with the master having its own ensuite shower room and the second double bedroom currently used as a home office. There is a further guest bathroom with ample storage space and the apartment also comes with a secure underground parking space. This has to be one of the finest lateral, dual aspect, penthouse apartments in Clerkenwell.
About the Building
A modern-day construction added to the original building, the penthouse is quite breath-taking, with an impressive barrel vaulted ceiling running the length of the apartment and full height windows filling the space with an abundance of light. Clerkenwell remains home to some of the first London loft apartments, offering a romantic vision of living, allowing incoming homeowners the freedom to create and adapt these spaces to suit their living environment that is both personal and social, eliminating the defined spaces most commonly found in a traditional house. Designed by William Bradford & Sons for the Cannon Brewery Company in 1894, the building originally housed offices and caretakers’ accommodation.
The Local Area
Clerkenwell’s industrial and commercial history are quite striking with its current prosperity indebted to its past, dating as far back to its monastic routes. In this respect Clerkenwell has been progressive, with brewers, waterworks, distilleries, ironmongers, gemologists, watchmakers and print workers all having used the area as their work place. Located on St John Street, close to the junction with Clerkenwell Road, the building is minutes from a large branch of Waitrose. The area also offers some of London’s most fashionable, eclectic and diverse restaurants.
Farringdon Underground (Circle, Metropolitan, Hammersmith and City lines) and Mainline Station (Thameslink) is moments away. In 2020/21 Farringdon will benefit from the opening of Crossrail, giving direct access to London’s airports as well as speedy access to Canary Wharf and the West End.
