Huge Factory Loft - Nile Street, London, N1
Guide Price £2,000,000
Offered for sale for the first time in nearly two decades, this huge factory loft conversion is located in a true Shoreditch original, The Factory, by Manhattan Loft Corporation.
Situated on the third floor (with lift) of this ultra desirable mixed-use Shoreditch icon, the apartment centres around a simply stunning and vast open-plan living room, with reclaimed wood flooring and huge amount of post-industrial character provided by period windows, loading bay doors, exposed bricks and beams. To the rear of the living space there is a large open-plan kitchen.
There are two large double bedrooms, one with private shower room, a third smaller bedroom, massive guest bath/shower room and separate utility room (or potential third bathroom).
Although in absolutely fine condition, this loft retains pretty much the same specification that our client bought into all those years ago. We therefore feel that this really does represent a great opportunity for the discerning loft buyer to transform what is the perfect raw industrial space into a very cool, future proof home or investment into the landmark building of this kind.
The Factory Shoreditch is a former project of Manhattan Loft Corporation, the godfathers of loft living in London, and this is what they say about the building in their own words:-
” The Factory is a loft development in its purest form. A derelict industrial building reborn as stylish contemporary living space in a creative district of the city.
Located at the heart of the triangle drawn by Clerkenwell, Islington and Shoreditch, this abandoned Edwardian printworks was converted into 50 iconic loft apartments, including 13 rooftop penthouses. Most were peeled back to their industrial frame of exposed brickwork, huge windows and high ceilings and sold as shells to encourage a design-led clientele to create their own space.
Named after Andy Warhol’s notorious New York loft studio, The Factory quickly became an emblem for London loft-living and the design revolution that transformed this part of the city.”
Residents at The Factory have the benefit of underground parking and a daytime caretaker. The building is extremely low-key and private but is just moments away from the hustle and bustle of The City Road, Old Street Roundabout, Clerkenwell and of course Shoreditch, now a world famous design, creative and tech destination on a par with Greenwich Village, NYC.
