A spectacular loft apartment in The Ziggurat , an iconic Art Deco Clerkenwell landmark which until the 1980's serviced the newspaper trade mainly based on Fleet Street.

London's Art Deco buildings have always been great flagships of industrial architecture and they remain the undisputed 20th Century classics with wonderful examples in London such as The Hoover Building, Battersea Power Station and The Michelin building.

A former print works, The Ziggurat was converted by the architects ORMS into 61 spectacular loft apartments in 1997 and to this day remains one of Clerkenwell's most recognised and best loved buildings.

The apartment still retains many of the features one would expect of a loft with painted concrete pillars extremely high ceilings and original windows. The accommodation comprises a large reception room with recessed kitchen, double bedroom, ample storage and bathroom.

Clerkenwell first became a fashionable place to live in the 17th century as a destination where Londoners enjoyed tea gardens, theatres and spas: in fact, you can still see part of Clerks' Well after which Clerkenwell was originally named. The area later became famous as a centre for clock and watchmaking alongside the jewellers and goldsmiths of Hatton Garden. It's remains one of the best-preserved village centres in central London - a vibrant modern community with a fascinatingly rich history.

Farringdon underground and main line station is a short stroll away from The Ziggurat with access to the Circle, Metropolitan and Hammersmith and City lines, National rail and the recently opened Elizabeth Line. In fact, it is one of the only stations in London that offers north-south as well as east - west connections, making the City, Canary Wharf and London's west end easily accessible, not to mention easy access to Kings Cross St Pancras with its Eurostar terminus.

With great shopping and tremendous diversity of acclaimed restaurants, bars, galleries and wine bars it remains one of London's best kept secrets.

This is a wonderful opportunity to buy an important piece of Clerkenwell history.
