LOFT LIVING AT ITS FINEST.
This is an extremely fine Clerkenwell loft apartment with access to one of the largest gardens in central Clerkenwell.
The building began life as a Printworks in the mid 1960's designed by Westmore & Partners, converted to stunning apartments in the late 1990's by EPR Architects. Ranked in the top twenty practices in the Architects Journal 100, as well as being the winners of the AJ100 Clients' Choice Awards, they retained the exposed concrete frame complimenting the structure with graphite colour bricks.
The current owner has carried out an exacting refurbishment programme creating one of the most refined loft apartments I have seen in a while, with bespoke finishes such as
micro-crete polished concrete flooring, automation lighting system and "crittall style" floor to ceiling doors, whilst exposing the authenticity of the building.
The very generous accommodation comprises a large open plan reception/dining and kitchen space with views towards St John's Gardens, a master bedroom with ensuite shower room, guest double bedroom, guest bathroom and ample storage space throughout.
To the rear of the apartment there access to a superb, landscaped garden with composite decking, electronically controlled awning, irrigation system and black bamboo screening.
The apartment's location in Clerkenwell is enviable, with direct views over St John's Gardens, which has numerous mature trees, flower borders and the installation of a number of innovative benches designed by artists, which were sponsored by Bloomberg.
Farringdon Station which offers both underground and mainline trains is within a minutes' walk away and with the opening of Crossrail in the next year will make this location one of the most accessible in Central London.
