Commercial Street, Shoreditch, E1


2 Bedroom Penthouse Sold

This distinctive penthouse with wraparound terrace is in an art deco conversion that once formed part of the showrooms of Godfrey Phillips and Sons’ former tobacco works, before being converted into residential apartments in 1999.

The handsome brick exterior of the building is mirrored internally with an expanse of floor to ceiling Crittall windows curving gracefully around the apartment, framing the stunning city views which are the focal point of this home. The open plan kitchen with central island and extensive, sprawling living area provide different zones for work, contemplation and entertaining. Two spacious bedrooms and contemporary bathrooms are minimalist in style with the focus again on the windows and south-facing wraparound terrace. In the hallway there is generous storage that discreetly houses the washing machine, dryer and other household appliances.  

Built on the site of the Royal Cambridge Music Hall, the Exchange Building was initially destined to be a telephone exchange before it was commandeered by Godfrey Phillips & Sons as part of an extension to their London Headquarters. The art deco touches, the fluting and clock, were added in the twenties by architects W. Gilbee Scott and BWH Scott.

It is located at the heart of Spitalfields and Brick Lane, home to the Truman Brewery and a number of cafes, restaurants and boutiques including Jago, Sunday UpMarket and Allpress. Nearby Spitalfields Market is a bustling hub of fashion and jewellery traders, whilst food vendors offer creations from around the world. Liverpool Street station is half a mile away, offering connections across the capital whilst Shoreditch High Street station, a 5-minute walk, provides links to Canary Wharf.
