The Cooperage is a masterpiece of design mixing old and new within a former industrial freehold including five bedrooms over five levels spanning over 4,000 sq ft (approx) with two roof terraces. Dating back to the early 1900s this gem of a warehouse conversion was originally used as a brewery cooperage but has been transformed into one of Clerkenwell’s finest homes. Situated on a gated cobbled mews in the heart of Clerkenwell the building was completely renovated combining concrete, steel and redbrick by the renowned Chris Dyson architects and received a RIBA Award in 2017.
Double fronted doors framed by two pillars and redbrick façade open into the dramatic ground floor landing overlooking a triple height void revealing vaulted timber ceilings and retractable glass roof over the dining, kitchen and living areas. There is also a separate side entrance into a large cloakroom with utility area, separate double washing and drying machines and WC with stairs down to the dining/kitchen.
The centre piece of this home is the freestanding steel staircase that flows through the entire property on every level alongside an internal living wall and exposed red brick. The first floor contains three double bedrooms and a study with large bathroom shared by two bedrooms and a separate steam-shower room for the third. The huge master bedroom is on the second floor and has an en-suite bathroom with shower and a small terrace, French oak flooring extends across both bedroom levels. The third level houses a stunning roof terrace complete with covered kitchen and BBQ area, seating, outdoor shower and WC.
Exmouth Market, Covent Garden and Soho are all within walking distance and Clerkenwell’s variety of bars, pubs and restaurants are on the doorstep The Barbican Centre is also a short walk as well as Farringdon Station (Metropolitan, Hammersmith & City and Circle Line, National Rail plus Crossrail coming soon)
