A beautiful one-bedroom apartment on the second floor of this Grade 2 listed Victorian warehouse conversion on the site of the former J & W Nicholson Gin Distillery. The original faade of the building dates from the early 19th century and is one of the most recognised buildings on St John Street. Converted into apartments in 1989 the property benefits from a secure underground parking space, access to communal gardens and a day porter. Moments from Clerkenwell Green, Farringdon Station, Smithfields and Exmouth Market this is a wonderful property in a superb location.
The open-plan apartment consists of a fully integrated brand-new kitchen with all Bosch appliances, breakfast bar opening onto the reception with further space to dine. There is one double bedroom with bespoke fitted wardrobes, secondary glazing (sound proofing) and good cupboard space and a modern fully tiled bathroom with a large bath, power shower, sink and WC. The apartment is sold with a secure gated underground parking space and a long lease of 977 years. In addition, the residents have a Right To Manage meaning service fees are minimised unlike most other leaseholds.
Other benefits include a courtyard and communal garden allowing residents to enjoy relaxing or socialising with family and friends. There is a daytime concierge (8am-4pm, which includes postal receipt and parcel handling), secure underground parking with mobile phone access, disabled access via the side gate and lift, the recent renovation includes newly fitted engineered oak wood flooring throughout the open plan areas, a completely new kitchen, rewiring and new lighting, CCTV security throughout the building, lift access, delivery van access to the courtyard, a back gate to Clerkenwell Green and Farringdon Station and being just 'a stone's throw' from Waitrose, Sainsbury and Tesco convenience stores.
The immediate area offers a vast choice of cafes, public houses, fine dining restaurants, boutique shops and markets. The apartment has a bus stop opposite it (bus heading across the city) and is a short walk to Farringdon Station offering both Underground (Circle, Hammersmith & City and Metropolitan lines) and mainline services across and beyond London, and will benefit hugely from the opening of Crossrail in 2022, providing access to The City and London Heathrow Airport, and beyond in both directions, making it truly one of the most accessible locations in the Capital.
