An outstanding deal at £1100 per sq/ft, a loft apartment of truly epic proportions, offering circa 5000 sqft of internal and external space over one floor, located in York Central, one of London's most desirable converted warehouse buildings and just moments from King's Cross and St. Pancras Stations.
The apartment and this building are imbedded in the history of loft living and like the truest originators of this scene it is completely dominated by an open-plan living space that is virtually impossible to match in such a cool, central London location. This 2000 sqft of sheer open space is surrounded by huge crittal windows on three sides. Eye-opening sunrises to the East, daytime sun from the South and then glorious sunsets are captured by the wall of West facing windows and the enormous private roof terrace beyond.
The living space itself is so vast and so flexible that it can be utilised in whatever way you choose to live. There is space to live, cook, entertain on a grand scale and of course in these times, superb potential home work spaces.
Like all proper lofts and the demographic that tend to inhabit them, this classic loft is not inhibited by corridors and multiple bedrooms. It functions perfectly with two bedrooms, one being a massively indulgent primary bedroom suite and the other a big guest bedroom with a large walk-in shower room across the hall.
On a practical level, the apartment has masses of storage, a utility room and secured underground parking. It is also accessed very discreetly from York Way, without the fanfare of grand entrances that can ruin the atmosphere that these low-key buildings thrive on.
The location is simply world class now. King's Cross and St. Pancras themselves are brilliant, modern transport hubs, taking you into Central London in two or three stops and out of the city in no time at all. St, Pancras, one the most instantly recognisable buildings in London, not only takes you to Paris but has some great shops on your doorstep. Nearby Granary Square and Coal Drops Yard are now considered to be food and drink destinations on a par with Borough Market. The transformation of this area has been both sympathetic to its architectural heritage and a triumph in catering for the needs of the modern Londoner.
An apartment that cannot be justly served by photos and virtual viewings, we highly recommend an internal inspection of this remarkable piece of London's industrial living heritage.
