Breath-taking penthouse apartment with magnificent views.
A breath-taking penthouse apartment with magnificent views over the London skyline.
The property was fully renovated by the current owners in 2016 with the internal walls being removed and the space reimagined with new staircase commissioned to connect the two floors and an extension on the upper level.
The apartment occupies the sixth and seventh floors of the block. On the lower level is a substantial principal bedroom with a Japanese inspired walk-in wardrobe and a luxurious bathroom, which has a direct line of site of St Pauls. The remainder of this floor is a versatile configuration which can be used as three bedrooms or as two bedrooms with an extended living space. There is a terrace off the living space, and another accessed from the main bedroom.
An elegant spiral staircase leads to the upper level into the open plan kitchen and lounge, with an impressive south facing main terrace providing 360 degree views over the City. The finishes are to a meticulous high standard full of bespoke craftsmanship and cutting edge technology including two temperature controlled wine cellars, Gaggenau appliances, air conditioning and remote blinds controlled via Lutron.
Britton Street is arguably Clerkenwell's finest residential turning with a number of notable period houses and numerous popular apartment blocks. The lack of through traffic coupled with close proximity to Farringdon station and the ease of access into the West End are good reasons why it is so adored.
Farringdon is a Thameslink station, 200 yards away, with direct access to Gatwick and Luton airports and will be among the first Crossrail stations due to open this Summer. There are numerous bus links into the West End and the local area has a wide selection of shops, restaurants and some of London's most historic pubs.
The nearby Smithfield Meat market is subject to regenerations plans to develop into mixed use site which will include the new Museum of London, events space and a series of shops and restaurants.
