Perfectly blending the typical characteristics of an original loft apartment with penthouse apartment finishes all within top down townhouse layout, is Whitecross Street. A 1,778 sqft (approx) architect designed, three floor - 2/3 bedroom - self contained apartment right in the centre of Clerkenwell.
Occupying a prominent corner plot on Whitecross Street & Banner Street within a building originally used back in 1895 to be a dress-makers workshop. Fully renovated in 2013 by the current owners with the addition of a roof top extension and twin terraces, the property has been finished to a high specification throughout across all 3 floors (further information available on our TBA Property Fact Sheet).
Utilising a practical top down layout the apartment comprises:
• 2 double bedrooms, main 4 piece bathroom and utility on the 1st floor,
• An authentic warehouse living space complete with beams and timber floors, bathroom and third bedroom/study on the 2nd,
• Modern penthouse apartment kitchen/dining room (fitted with high specification appliances) and WC plus full length floor to ceiling glazed sliding doors opening out onto a decked private terrace
• Up again on to the 4th and there is an even larger upper terrace with incredible cityscape views of The Shard, Gherkin and Heron Tower.
An interesting fact only adding to the extensive history of Whitecross Street is that around a decade ago it was used by famous Rolling Stones Guitarist Ronnie Wood as his studio.
