Penthouse with Car Parking close to Regents Canal
About the Penthouse
This beautifully presented duplex penthouse apartment is well appointed and has been further improved by the present owner. Positioned on the south east corner of the building, this property is incredibly bright throughout offering flexible accommodation over both the sixth and seventh floors. The spacious open plan reception room has a South East facing wraparound terrace which is directly accessed through the sliding timber floor to ceiling windows. There is, as you would expect, an impressive contemporary kitchen and a further room that can be used as a study or third bedroom. On the 7th floor is a master suite with skyline views across the City and a further bedroom. There is also an impressive walk in wardrobe which could be converted back into a 4th bedroom. The apartment benefits from a valuable secure underground car parking space for one car.
About the Building
Completed in spring 2016, Decorum Apartments is an well located development finished to the highest standard using stack-bonded engineering bricks and large scale openings. The design of the building echoes the strong industrial architecture of the neighbouring warehouses. The grand and welcoming main entrance foyer, where you will find the daytime concierge, houses the lift which services all the apartments. The rear of the building backs onto Wenlock Basin giving many residents basin views. On the chamfered corner of the building is a striking mural designed by Patricia Wilson Smith and painted by Gary Drostle. It depicts brewery workers trapped in Wenlock Brewery’s basement after an air raid in 1940. Their only chance of escape was to form a human pyramid and climb to safety through the pavement gratings.
The Local Area
Once a hub of industrious activity, Wenlock Basin, City Road Basin and the old warehouses have been sympathetically regenerated into one of the much coveted and landscaped places to live with Wenlock Road being at the core. It is a highly desirable location. The City, Islington’s Upper Street, trendy Shoreditch and Hoxton are just a short distance away where you will find an abundance of fashionable shops, bars and restaurants.
The nearest Underground station is at Old Street. City Road provides excellent bus links to the City, the West End and north to St Pancras International with high speed rail connections to continental Europe.
