AN OUTSTANDING LOFT APARTMENT IN THIS LANDMARK BUILDING IN CLERKENWELL
This impressive space is quietly situated to the rear of the building and epitomises all that you would expect from a loft, high ceilings, exposed brickwork, and huge original windows.
Built in the early 1900s for the United Yeast Company it was later the London headquarters for The Scholl Manufacturing Company, the footwear specialists.
This nearly symmetrical building is commanding yet blends in beautifully with its red brick facade.
Comprising superb open flexible space the accommodation offers two generous double bedrooms, one with an en suite shower room and a further guest bathroom. The living space is splendid with direct access onto a private terrace and cleverly divided by crittall glass doors which lead to a kitchen breakfast room. There is ample storage throughout the apartment and a wonderful redeeming feature are the original metal doors designed by the engineering company "Mather and Platt Ltd".
St John Street houses some of the most outstanding loft apartments found in Clerkenwell and this loft will not disappoint.
Clerkenwell's industrial and commercial history is quite striking with its current prosperity indebted to its past, dating as far back to its monastic roots. In this respect Clerkenwell has been progressive, with brewers, waterworks, distilleries, ironmongers, gemmologists, watchmakers and print workers all having used these wonderful loft buildings as their workplace.
Many of these industrial buildings have over the last 30 years been transformed into some of the most exhilarating and breath-taking places to live, with the emphasis not on the number of rooms, but space, volume, and height. Expect the unexpected, loft apartments offer an effortless and relaxed lifestyle.
Crossrail so much discussed over the last 17 years is approaching its opening, Farringdon Station will be home to one of the largest terminuses in London and will be the only station in the Capital to give direct access to four of London's International Airports, with Heathrow a direct 50-minute journey away, whilst Canary Wharf in the East and Bond Street in London's West End will both be within 8 minutes.
The London Museum's relocation to the Southern end of the abandoned Smithfield Market is underway, receiving a £180m by the City and London Mayor and is planned to open in 2026 creating new gallery space as well as options for larger events and exhibitions.
All walks of life now aspire to call Clerkenwell home from the financial and legal sectors wanting to be within a short walk of their offices as well as the ever-growing creative sector, design, fashion and tech markets ever passionate about these wonderful spaces.
A truly special and unique loft apartment.
