Cathedral Lodge was designed by the RIBA architects Emberton, Franck and Tardrew for the clothing company Steinberg & Sons, originally called Steinberg house. In the 1990's the building was acquired by Barratt homes, converting to luxury homes.
The penthouse apartment is an exceptional space designed and reconfigured by the current owners who have created a dynamic and individual home to suit City living.
The entrance is a spacious area with an abstract, bronze contemporary effect wall feature giving a warm an inviting ambience. From the hallway one heads into the kitchen/dining room.
A breath-taking space over 36ft - 11 meters in length and most certainly one of the finest kitchens. White units, Miele appliances, marble flooring and pale grey stone work surfaces with a space that can comfortably take a dining table seating twelve. There is access onto a roof terrace which has wonderful views towards the City and London's West End.
On the far side of the kitchen are the sleeping quarters accessed from the entrance hall.
A fine principal bedroom with ample built-in wardrobes leads onto the terrace as well as having its own ensuite shower room. There is a second double bedroom with built in wardrobes and ensuite shower room, a further room which is currently used as a home office and a guest bathroom.
A sculptured and very striking, wide spiral staircase leads from the kitchen to the reception room.
An astounding space with windows facing North, East, South and West and a view that will take your breath away. A comfortable space for entertaining that leads onto a delightful roof terrace which must be one of the very best in Clerkenwell with views towards the financial district, Barbican and Central London.
The apartment benefits from underfloor heating, air cooling system, secure underground parking and porter.
The Elizabeth Line so much discussed over the last 20 years has finally opened with Farringdon Station home to one of the largest terminuses in London giving quick and easy access to four of London's International Airports, whilst Canary Wharf in the East and Bond Street in London's West End are both within 9 minute journey.
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 occupations 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, academia and tech markets ever passionate about these wonderful spaces.
A truly special and unique Clerkenwell penthouse apartment.
