Comprising approximately 2000 square feet of lateral space, this flat is the epitome of a true warehouse conversion.
The building, 190 St Johns Street, dates back to 1910 and was originally home to the United Yeast Company, a subsidiary of the large Scottish Whisky distillery group. Later in the 1930's it became part of the Scholl Shoe Factory until the company's takeover in the 1980's. In the 1990's the property was converted into flats.
Designed by renowned architect Henley Halebrown Rorrison the apartment is arranged in a very flexible open-plan style with the concrete pillars
offering a natural sense of division throughout. The flat draws natural light from the large Crittal windows on both the East and West walls whilst ambient lighting illuminates the space from the vertical strip lights when required within.
The lounge/seating area towards the West aspect of the flat boasts a Juliet balcony with a tranquil outlook onto the leafy trees towards Compton Street and seamlessly leads to the dining and kitchen space with stainless steel units mirroring the industrial nature of the building allowing one to entertain effortlessly. Dramatic concrete stacks separate a dressing area and the bathroom from the remainder of the flat.
The property has retained a fantastic sense of character from the concrete ceilings, industrial steel doors, exposed brickwork and addition of birch-ply panelled flooring.
The flat further benefits from well-maintained communal areas, a secure entry-phone system, and a lift servicing all floors.
Clerkenwell offers a range of top notch restaurants, bars, and cafes whilst Exmouth and Smithfields Market are only a short walk away.
The nearest station is Farringdon offering access to the Circle, Metropolitan and Hammersmith & City lines and National Rail services accessing Luton & Gatwick airport. The highly anticipated Elizabeth line will provide speedy access to Heathrow Airport in 2019.
