It is well documented within these pages that we love all things industrial, which is exactly why we are featuring this apartment in the Davy Smith-converted Royle Building in London N1.
Yes, a converted factory dwelling in what was formerly a printworks. That all changed in the late 1990s, when this building became loft apartments courtesy of Davy Smith Architects.
Judging by the photos, that certainly wasn’t the last time that this place had a makeover. Yes, all the signs of the industrial past are still here, such as the exposed brickwork, concrete ceilings and pillars, but look closer and there is a more contemporary feel here.
The kitchen and bathroom certainly look recent, as do the ‘hip’ light fittings and shelving for example. We certainly aren’t talking 16 years since it was restyled.
Regardless of date, the finish is minimalist and if you love an industrial look, very appealing. The layout might well appeal too.
This is a third floor, split level apartment, one that overlooks Regent’s Canal and has around 897 sq. ft. of living space. That includes what is described as a ‘generous’ open-plan living room with kitchen area, a raised study area, double bedroom and bathroom.
There is also a south-facing balcony with space for a table and chairs, as well as a porter and lift access on hand (although a service charge essential pays for the former and general building upkeep.
If you like what you see, the asking price is £925,000.
