A simply stunning and light filled three bedroom authentic warehouse apartment, situated in a fashionable area of central London, being sold chain free and with a share of the freehold.

Banner Buildings is a former factory which was completed in 1911 for the Chater-Lea Bicycle Company who manufactured bicycles, cars and motorcycles within this purpose-built building. It was converted to apartments in the 1990s with most apartments retaining a lot of its original features such as exposed brickwork and exceptionally high ceilings. This extraordinary building is situated on Banner Street which is a one-way road positioned between Old Street and Clerkenwell.

This magnificent apartment occupies 1,649 square feet (153sq/m) of split-level living with a 3.48-metre ceiling height in the main living areas and 3.08 metres in the bedrooms on the lower level of the property. The dual aspect living space and kitchen benefits from southerly orientation to the front of the building which floods the whole flat with light through the original large factory windows.

Upon entering the apartment, you are immediately wowed by the vast living room and kitchen area. The feeling of space is accentuated by its tall ceilings and the clever open plan layout, with living at the front and the kitchen and dining area to the back, discretely taking their natural positions. There is a huge amount of bespoke storage, wooden floors and exposed brickwork that you would expect to find in this type of period building. Everything is designed to accommodate a comfortable living environment within this perfect apartment. A small WC can be found just off the entrance hall with two further bathrooms to the lower ground floor level, one being en-suite to the main bedroom. A generous staircase leads down to the bedrooms where light, height and space is of equal abundance allowing the lower hall to accommodate office space. Three large, bright bedrooms are peaceful and full of character. There is also a utility room and a fire exit door to this level.

Whitecross Street is home to an excellent street food market and there is the added convenience of a Waitrose supermarket a few minutes’ walk away. The nearby Barbican is home to a world-class cultural programme of cinema, music, theatre and exhibitions.
