Originally a 1930s art deco warehouse, this is now modern living space with a vintage edge. If that sounds like your kind of thing, you might want to check out this apartment in the Child Graddon Lewis-designed Canal Building in London N1.
The original building dates tho 1930, with the modern space dating to a more recent 2001, when the units within the building were sold as ‘live / work spaces. The first generation buyers were sold ‘shell’ units, fitting out the apartments to their own specification. Someone obviously did a decent job on this one.
Of course, it might well have been a subsequent occupier who has given this place a retro / modern makeover, keeping everything fairly minimal, but adding a splash of colour and some retro furnishings here and there to add interest to what is a fairly plain and simple finish (that’s not a criticism by the way, quite the opposite).
The odd industrial feature still in place too, such as the concrete ceiling and broad concrete pillars, which are currently painted white.
This is actually a second floor, two-bedroom apartment, with around 1,100 sq. ft. of internal living space and the kind of high ceilings and large windows you would expect of a former industrial building.
Entry is via a ‘wide’ entrance hall, which leads to a bright and open plan living / dining area and kitchen. Off that is the master bedroom with large fitted wardrobes, an en-suite bathroom and a view of the canal. You also get a second double bedroom, a ‘good-sized’ bathroom and a separate utility room.
The building also has a 24-hour concierge and is set behind gates for a ‘very high level’ of security. Note that there is a service charge too, which no doubt covers those extras.
As for the asking price, that is £965,000.
