This elegant, light-filled apartment is situated on the third floor of a converted warehouse a short walk from Liverpool Street, Spitalfields and the City.
With over 1,200 sq ft of versatile accommodation the apartment is currently configured as two bedrooms, a study, a dining room, kitchen, two bathrooms and a large reception room.
The space has been cleverly arranged to allow a flowing transition from one area to the next whilst maintaining the independence of individual zones. The current owner, a professor of art, has succeeded in creating a tranquil and balanced aesthetic with a reassuring focus on practical modernisation. Exposed-brick walls, oak timber floorboards and iron columns ensure that much of the character of the original building is retained.
There is a raised open-plan dining area overlooking the expansive living space. The large warehouse windows are double-glazed and provide a dramatic perspective of Harrow Place through to the City and the Gherkin. A glass room-divider floods the hall with natural light and serves as a well-planned annexation of the study. This leads to the large master bedroom which has built-in wardrobes and an en-suite bathroom. The fully integrated kitchen and the bathroom were designed by Mark Anthony.
Access to the apartment is via an industrial-style goods lift and through a very well maintained communal hall. The current owner rents a large store cupboard on the communal landing opposite the apartment’s front door.
Middlesex Street is on the doorstep of the City. Liverpool Street station (Central Line, Circle Line, Metropolitan Line, National Rail and Stansted Express) is a short walk away. Petticoat Lane Market, and the amenities of Spitalfields and Shoreditch are within easy reach.
