Massive Penthouse Loft - Nile Street, London, N1
Guide Price £1,900
A genuine rock star pad, this massive penthouse loft at The Factory in Shoreditch pretty much defines the building and the area in terms of warehouse living.
Situated on the third and fourth floors (with lift) of this ultra desirable mixed-use Shoreditch icon, the apartment is centred around a simply bloody enormous 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 area with breakfast bar.
There are two very large double bedrooms, one with private shower room and a large second bathroom which opens out on to the roof terrace for a bit of fun.
The roof terrace itself weighs in at 1800 sqft and is fully laid with artificial grass. It is a total sun trap and offers roof top views over the Shoreditch area.
The Factory 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.
