An outstanding, interior designed loft apartment in this noted Clerkenwell building.
This impressive lateral space epitomises all that you would expect from a loft, soaring ceilings, huge original windows and boundless open space.
Located in one of the most sought-after loft buildings in Clerkenwell, the building was constructed in the early 1900s for the United Yeast Company, 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 space, the accommodation is flexible with a vast Southwest facing living area comfortably zoned into dining, reception and study zones with a cleverly concealed pull down bed for visiting guests.
There is a beautiful open plan, bespoke kitchen with stainless steel and solid wood surfaces, a master bedroom with walk in dressing room and separate bathroom.
The loft has been cleverly designed creating an abundance of concealed storage space and the most delightful stone floor carpet with a resin base.
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 has finally opened, 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 both 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.
