Vast Kentish Town Loft - Leighton Place, London, NW5
Guide Price £1,975,000
One of the finest and most authentic spaces we have handled for some time, this vast Kentish Town loft offers true warehouse living in a fantastic location.
Occupying the upper half of a converted organ factory, this is loft living at its dreamiest, being the perfect combination of post-industrial heritage and simple home comforts. This is a home that tells the story of its near decade and a half relationship with the current owners, who have seen this remarkable space transform from an unashamed party pad to a gorgeous family apartment.
Accessed via a low-key entrance on Leighton Place, this top floor loft immediately offers a huge, dramatic open-plan living room as soon as you get inside. This dual-aspect space is dominated by six enormous period crittal windows (not the modern pastiche), acres of exposed wooden beams and double-height ceilings. The original warehouse loading doors, brickwork and fireplace add to the laid-back loft appeal.
Without any internal walls to interfere with the loft ethic, the living room naturally divides itself up into a great reception room and large dining area, which sits just off the open-plan galley kitchen and its larder/utility room.
The lower level of the apartment is also home to the most beautiful master bedroom you will ever see, a second bedroom and large bathroom with walk in shower.
The mezzanine level is accessed via a cool exposed staircase and goes straight into a terrific 20ft work space that lies just off the roof terrace, a genuine sun trap and from where you will can watch the sun set over North West London. Up here you will also find a third double bedroom with large private bathroom and a very useful storage area.
This truly authentic loft experience can be found in a quiet cul-de-sac just 3/4 minutes from Kentish Town Underground Station, which pings you into the West End in less than 10 minutes via the Northern Line or a multitude of destinations via Thames Link. Hampstead Heath is a short walk away and Kentish Town itself has enjoyed a massive renaissance in recent years, offering up some superb local restaurants and pubs.
