TWO DOUBLE BEDROOM AUTHENTIC CLERKENWELL LOFT APARTMENT
This spectacular lateral loft apartment is located on St John's Lane, possibly one of the most sought after addresses in Clerkenwell.
This extremely elegant and almost symmetrical former warehouse was erected in the 1860's by Fenner, Appleton and Co. as a manufacturing stationer and a timber Yard, partially re-constructed in 1918-19 and converted into apartments at the turn of the century by the Architects Herber-Percy and Parker.
Defining the very best in Clerkenwell loft living the apartment has high ceilings, huge windows and the ability to adapt a living environment that is both personal and social, eliminating the defined spaces most commonly found in a traditional house.
The accommodation comprises a wonderful reception/dining room with recessed fully integrated kitchen, master bedroom with ample storage and en suite bathroom, second double bedroom and guest shower room.
Prior Docwra's Gate or what we now know as St John's Gate, completed in 1504 was the entrance to the walled precinct of the Priory of St John and is visible from the apartment, regarded as the most important historic landmarks in Clerkenwell.
The area is superbly serviced with Farringdon Underground (Circle, Metropolitan and Hammersmith & City) as well as mainline station moments away with Cross rail expected to be fully operational in 2022. Not to mention the superb selection of restaurants, shops and bars on Exmouth market and Cowcross Street.
Whether you are working in the City's financial district, the Inns of Court, Clerkenwell's creative industries or the world of tech you can be sure that it will be a short walk away to your office.
This is an extremely special apartment in a very esteemed Clerkenwell building.
