Positioned high above Hoxton Square with spectacular views towards the city skyline from a large roof terrace, this wonderfully bright penthouse apartment was completely redesigned by award-winning Block Architecture.
Measuring approximately 826 sq ft internally, and located on the fourth floor, the impressive space is almost completely open plan with windows that stretch along the full length of the southern wall. A beautiful teak floor runs throughout.
The bedroom area is delineated by a slatted wooden structure, which has been configured to include a ‘sleep pod’, and a long run of wardrobes that serve both the bedroom and the entrance hall.
The living / dining area opens onto a large decked terrace at the opposite end, from which there are views over Hoxton Square directly below. The kitchen has a long island that is backed with the same slatted wooden detail found in the bedroom area, one end of which extends to create a breakfast bar.
Hoxton Square was an early example of London’s garden squares. Completed in 1720 and designed to emulate existing squares in the west of London, it was the first of its type in the area. In the 19th century the square and surrounding streets became the centre of Shoreditch’s furniture and carpentry trade. Today, the immediate area has an exciting mix of restaurants and galleries, including Mark Hix’s Tramshed, Shoreditch House, Ace Hotel, Hales Gallery, Parasol Unit and Victoria Miro Gallery. The shops of Redchurch Street and Spitalfields are all within striking distance.
Old Street Station (Northern Line) and Shoreditch High Street station (London Overground) are a few-minutes’ walk away.
Lease Length: approx 900 years
Service Charge (including Ground Rent): approx. £2,600 per annum
