Bright One Bed Loft - Shepherdess Walk, London, N1
Guide Price £750,000
This bright one bed loft is situated on the third floor of The Canal Building, a hugely popular and well located converted 1920s factory on the Regent’s Canal, on the doorstep of Shoreditch and Islington.
The loft has the perfect layout for a property of this kind, with the emphasis on a huge 36ft open-plan living space and making full use of an entire wall of huge crittal windows, which are directly South facing, flooding the loft with amazing sunlight.
The open-plan kitchen is neatly placed at one end of this massive living area and this entire space encapsulates the factory style, with loads of exposed concrete ceilings and beams . There is a large bedroom, with fitted wardrobes and a fully tiled bathroom, which is cleverly arranged around one of the concrete beams to provide a great walk-in shower and separate bath.
The Canal Building is one of the more sought after Shoreditch and Islington warehouse loft buildings, 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 people. There is excellent security, with 24 hour gated porter and some parking available.
The local neighbourhood is peaceful and quite car free, with just canal boats, towpath cyclists and casual walkers for company. The building sits on The Regent’s Canal, just 10 minutes from Angel in one direction and a similar walk to Hoxton and Haggerston the other way.
Angel Station and Upper Street, Islington are nearby, as is Old Street Station and the many bars of Shoreditch and Clerkenwell. Also, excellent links to King’s Cross St. Pancras.
