2 Bedroom Apartment For Sale
This unusually spacious two bedroom loft apartment occupies the first floor of a Victorian warehouse in a prime position on Shoreditch High Street.
This unique apartment is located in a distinctive building originally designed by architect William White as a furniture showroom and subsequently used as a bank prior to its conversion to residential use.
The expansive open-plan main reception room, which is over 70ft long, has three large arched west-facing windows and two supporting columns. There are typical of the first floor showrooms of this vintage, and provide a light and airy ambience and a superbly flexible living space. Discreet privacy covering means there is no need for blinds or curtains.
This vast space is enhanced by a curved wall along one side with concealed storage cupboards. There is a further storage wall to the rear of the room, adjacent to the open-plan kitchen. The stylish kitchen is an eclectic mix of materials, with lacquered Macassar ebony units alongside stainless steel and Corian. A utility room, with further storage space as well as appliances, is cleverly concealed behind one wall of the kitchen.
Both bedrooms are situated towards the rear of the apartment, with large east-facing Crittall windows which open onto a full length terrace. The master bedroom is particularly light, with windows facing east and south, a door onto the terrace and a large en-suite white-tiled bathroom with generously sized windows, a contemporary freestanding bath and double sink. The second bathroom, which is fully tiled with bright yellow tiles, has a walk-in shower.
The use as a bank has left the apartment with a legacy of security and soundproofing throughout. The lack of noise within the home is remarkable.
This unusual apartment combines the generous dimensions and aesthetics of a warehouse space with the intimacy of a more conventional property. It has everything you need, including a great entertaining space, whilst offering a relatively blank canvas for you to create something special in the heart of Shoreditch.
