A substantial 3,229 sqft penthouse level loft apartment laid out almost entirely over one level. Set within a 19th century converted industrial building near to Old Street and the City, this spacious apartment also enjoys a wonderful 2,700 sqft roof terrace, lift access and secure underground parking. The rugged, no frills industrial building harks back to the true mechanical industrial time and evidenced with solid iron internal doors (now built into the walls). We understand there is scope to extend up to 30% (subject to permissions) by converting the roof terrace into further living space accessed via the spiral stairwell.
The passenger lift takes you to the top floor and a shared communal landing with the one other, smaller apartment that we are also marketing for sale. The front door opens into a wide hall space, giving easy access to four large bedrooms and three bathroom suites, occupying one corner section of the apartment. Double doors open to the vast open plan reception room and raised kitchen. This fabulous entertaining space enjoys great light and openness from the addition vaulted roof lights. The kitchen is well fitted with a central island and slate tiled flooring.
The roof terrace takes in a 360 vista of urban London. There is scope to enlarge the living space by c 30% with further extension of the Terrace room (subject to permissions and consents). The neighbouring loft apartment is also available for sale and could be incorporated to make an exceptional ‘Super loft’ of around 5,500 sqft plus over 5,000 sqft roof terrace.
Shepherdess Walk is highly convenient for Old Street and The City, edging Shoreditch and within the Old Street basin. Islington Angel and Clerkenwell are also close by. Transport links are many and frequent.
