A circa 2,000 sqft classic loft in it's purist form situated in one of Clerkenwell's early iconic industrial conversions. Set on the second floor with lift access and immaculate communal entrance, the lateral mainly open plan space has 10’6” ceilings throughout with light flooding in from large east and west facing industrial windows.
This former shoe factory was converted in the late 90's to residential use and much of the original building within this loft has been preserved, including the concrete pillars, exposed beautifull red brickwork, concrete ceilings and two industrial steel doors which would have formerly lead to other working parts of the building.
The two semi closed off areas are the bathroom and dressing/walk in wardrobe separated by concrete stacks that lead the eye to either end of the space and highlight the depth and sheer scale of the apartment. The West facing side currently houses the sitting area with work space and features the former loading doors which are now a Juliet balcony with a leafy view of trees and Georgian buildings along the quiet Compton St. Deeper into the space is the stainless steel kitchen along one wall which naturally flows alongside the existing dining area. Towards the East facing side is the bedroom area and clever vertical strip lighting illuminates the space at night and specifically shows the variation and texture of the birch-ply panelled floor, brick walls, pillars and concrete.
Clerkenwell has a wide selection of well known restaurants and bars with the famous Smithfileds, Exmouth Market, St Paul’s and the City all being a short walk away from the building along with The Barbican Centre.
Farringdon station (Circle, Metropolitan and Hammersmith & City lines and National Rail) provides quick access to the West End and London’s major airports. Angel station is a short walk to the north, for access to the Northern Line. When the Elizabeth line opens this year Farringdon station will connect with Thameslink and the London Underground to provide links with outer London, the home counties, the City, Canary Wharf (in approximately eight minutes) and three of London’s five airports
