Occupying one of the best positions in sought-after Canal Building, this fabulous two-bedroom waterfront apartment measures almost 1,500 sq ft internally.
The current owner bought it as a shell, and reshaped the three-bedroom layout into a generous two-bedroom, two-bathroom configuration with the help of the architect Patrick Downing. It has been designed with open-plan living in mind, with sliding doors and changes in level. The original concrete columns have been left on show.
The apartment is entered on the second floor. There is a large entrance hall and study area with built-in desk. This leads to the spectacular open-plan kitchen and reception room, with full-height steel-framed glazing overhanging the water. Being situated on the western end of the building, the flat has a corner window with wonderful long views down the canal.
The master bedroom has a walk-in dressing area behind the bed and an enormous en-suite bathroom with sunken bath and rain shower. There is also a second double bedroom and bathroom.
Canal Building has a 24-hour concierge and is set behind gates, offering a very high level of security. It is accessed on Shepherdess Walk, which provides a link between City Road and the Regent’s Canal, and is favourably located a short distance from both Angel and Old Street underground stations (Northern Line). 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.
