Occupying arguably the best position overlooking the Wenlock Basin, this wonderfully bright two-bedroom duplex apartment, with south west-facing balcony, is situated on the third floor of sought-after Union Wharf.
Accommodation is divided over two levels, and centres around a spectacular double-height living / dining / kitchen space, one end of which is completely glazed. Double doors open to the private balcony and impressive views over the Wenlock Basin, Regent’s Canal and London’s skyline. The listed warehouse building opposite, which sits below the balcony’s site line, ensures that the view is protected.
A staircase at the back of the space leads to a large landing area, which the current owners have arranged as a useful study and area for storage. The bedrooms look over a gallery rail to the living room below and have been fitted with internal glazing. There are two equal-sized bathrooms, one at entrance level and the other on the upper level.
The interiors maintain a distinctly loft-like feel, with soaring exposed-concrete ceilings and concrete supports. The windows have galvanised-steel frames and the balcony has a mesh-steel and concrete balustrade.
The block is entered from Wenlock Road, a quiet no-through road that runs towards the Regent’s Canal alongside Shepherdess Walk Park. The communal lobby has a concierge and lift access to all floors. There is a parking space that comes with the apartment, positioned behind secure electric gates. The canal path that runs between the building and the water, is for the exclusive use of the residents.
The apartment is excellently located next to the Regent’s Canal footpath, that leads towards Angel in one direction, and Victoria Park in the other. Shepherdess Walk Park sits opposite the building’s entrance. It is conveniently placed for access to the City. The shops, bars and restaurants of Islington, Shoreditch, Hoxton and Clerkenwell are within easy reach. Significant redevelopment and investment is taking place in the area around City Basin and Old Street’s ‘Silicon Roundabout’, as it attracts tech companies and creative talent from around the world.
Both Angel and Old Street stations are nearby, for access to the Northern Line.
