A sensational double height, two-bedroom, two-bathroom, triple aspect, South-East facing loft apartment, set within this former chocolate factory nestled just behind Old Street.
With lift access, this spacious loft apartment set on the fourth-floor measures 1,456 square feet, retaining many of the original features including exposed brickwork, concrete floors and Crittall windows.
In 2017 the property underwent extensive architect-led refurbishment by the current owners to create this remarkable and unique space, with a wow factor.
Upon entering the apartments hallway, on your right you walk through a huge door into an amazing living space with 4.4m ceiling height, flooded by natural light from triple height double aspect windows. The living space seamlessly connects to the dining space, with windows on one side and an imposing custom-made bookcase/display unit with a sliding ladder on the other, where the current owners have an oversized dining table, perfect for entertaining and dinner parties. The dining area leads to an extended, well-equipped kitchen with porcelain work surfaces, units with reclaimed beech wood doors, built-in water softener, and a further window to the rear.
From the main living space, a stunning bespoke staircase with sensor lighting leads you to an enclosed mezzanine level, with shutters overlooking the living space below, where you find an expansive bedroom with hardwood floors, dressing area, free standing bath, and separate marble shower room with demister mirror.
To the left of the main entrance is a second bedroom with floor-to-ceiling scaffolding shelving and a separate stylish monochrome bathroom/guest cloakroom. The apartment also benefits from generous storage throughout, including an enclosed laundry area off the main hall.
