Formerly the site of the J. & W. Nicholson Gin Distillery which was founded by John Nicholson, the building's facade dates to 1828 and it remains one of the most important industrial buildings surviving in Clerkenwell. The historic building was converted into apartments in the late 1990's with the addition of courtyard buildings, car park and communal gardens.
With great attention to detail as well as preserving the heritage of the space, the current owners have cleverly and imaginatively created one of the most spectacular apartments, opening ceiling voids to add double height living, bespoke joinery throughout and all new interior with high specification acoustic insulation. High end finishes include wide board oak flooring throughout, the kitchen with stone and XL porcelain tile and Carrara marble bathrooms.
The current owners have installed an air supply filtration system which discretely serves every room, including eco-friendly heat recovery.
On entering the apartment there is a superb feeling of space with a double height lobby with a gallery area above. The accommodation comprises a wonderful master bedroom suite with 11ft ceilings (3.5m) comprising bedroom, walk in dressing room and en suite shower room. There are two further bedrooms and a guest bathroom.
The living space with a ceiling height of 15ft (4.8m), was opened to add a double height area with a bespoke, open stairwell, mezzanine and exposed cast iron column and steel beams. This is a wonderful entertaining space with the room having a natural living, dining and kitchen area.
Unusually for a Clerkenwell apartment there in a private patio garden and a large storage room at the mezzanine level. The building is served with full fibre optic broadband.
Located on St John Street close to the junction of Clerkenwell Road the apartment is a short walk to Farringdon Station offering both Underground (Circle, Hammersmith & City and Metropolitan lines) and Mainline services and will benefit from the opening of Crossrail in 2022 making it one of the most accessible locations in the Capital.
Clerkenwell is one of London's most vibrant destinations regarded as London's Avant Garde design quarter, attracting some of the most renowned Architect practises as well as bespoke furniture companies.
The area offers the very best fine dining and eclectic street food markets, bespoke shops, art galleries and designer furniture shops. It is a short walk to London's Legal and Financial districts.
Close to Old Street, Barbican and Shoreditch, the location has become one of the most "trendy" and "super cool" in London with the area now home to reportedly over 5,000 tech companies and start-ups, in fact CNN European Network, HBO, Time Warner, Goldman Sachs, Deloitte and Linked-in have headquarter offices close by.
The Barbican centre which is a few minutes' walk away is part of the Global Cultural Districts Network and is the largest performing Art Centre in Europe, hosting music concerts, art exhibitions and film screenings.
In our opinion a super cool loft apartment.
