The main living space offers pretty epic proportions and great volume. There is wood flooring throughout, an open-plan kitchen area and a useful area of this that could be used a work space or dining area if needed. There are really great views towards the city beyond.
To the rear of the apartment are two very good sized double bedrooms, with the master bedroom having an entire wall of wardrobes and a large private bathroom with walk in shower. There is also a guest shower room, which doubles as a utility room.
The 5 resident’s in this part of the building have the use a lovely shared roof terrace, a sunny south facing area to relax and gaze at the city skyline. There is also 24 hour security at the main gates and secured parking.
The Canal Building is one of the original Shoreditch/Islington warehouse loft conversions, converted to ‘shell’ specification in 2000. All the apartments are different, which creates an interesting mix of residents, from City workers to the arts and media circle. The local neighbourhood offers some of London’s most celebrated bars, clubs and restaurants and nearby on City Road, a new tech neighbourhood is being built at a pace at the ‘Silicon Roundabout’, bringing with it 4 and 5 Star hotels and yet more infrastructure. For a more relaxed vibe just stroll along The Regent’s Canal towpath and enjoy the local gastropubs in and around Islington.
