This has to be one of the finest lateral, dual aspect, penthouse apartments in Clerkenwell, located above this landmark Listed building dating back to the 1890s.
A modern-day construction added to the original building, the penthouse is quite breathtaking, with an impressive barrel vaulted ceiling running the length of the apartment and full height windows filling the space with an abundance of light.
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.
Designed by William Bradford & Sons for the Cannon Brewery Company in 1894, the building originally housed offices and caretakers' accommodation. In the 1930s Cannon Brewery was acquired by the Taylor Walker group but closed in 1955.
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.
This really is the most wonderful and exceptional loft apartment.
