It was formerly used as an art gallery, so if you have plenty of art to hang, this Willingale Associates-designed industrial conversion in London EC1 might be the place for you.
Of course, this kind of space in this kind of location comes at a price. We’ll come onto that later.
For now, let’s look at the property, described as a live/work warehouse apartment and with plenty of original features from its days as an industrial space, including the, high ceilings, exposed brick and wonderful steel columns over the 2,000 sq. ft. of living space.
There are two points of access for the apartment, either via the shared lobby or through it own warehouse door. Regardless of where you access, the layout is much the same. On the ground floor you’ll find a reception room and a mezzanine office space at the front, both with large sash windows fitted. At the rear is an open-plan reception room, kitchen and dining room, the latter with full-height glazed sliding doors onto the patio garden.
According to the agent, the front half of this floor can be ‘sectioned off from the rear’ courtesy of a full-height sliding door, should you want to keep work and personal space private.
Head down the Italian limestone spiral staircase and you access the lower level. The layout there includes a single sleeping area contained ‘within a vault’, plus a large master bedroom with adjacent bathroom.
One thing to note. The agent adds that this place has generated ‘a substantial income’ as a location for film and photo shoots in recent years, with the likes of The Honourable Woman, Silent Witness and Catastrophe taking advantage.
Of course, before you pick up that income you will need a good amount of money to invest. £2,150,000 or thereabouts.
