Shepherdess Walk, London N1
This wonderfully bright two-bedroom apartment in sought-after Canal Building measures over 1,100 sq ft internally. Positioned on the fourth floor, the apartment is located in the north-east corner of the building overlooking Shepherdess Walk with a view of the Regent’s Canal.
The apartment is entered through a wide entrance hall and opens into a fantastic and bright living / dining area, and an adjoining kitchen. The space has clearly been designed with open-plan living in mind and has the volume and light that you would expect from an old industrial building.
A short, wide hall leads to the bedrooms and the main bathroom. The master bedroom has a large dressing area with fitted wardrobes and an ensuite bathroom with freestanding bath and shower. Through the steel-framed bedroom windows there is an oblique view of the canal. There is a good-sized second bedroom, also with fitted wardrobes, a shared bathroom and separate utility room.
The apartment has been beautifully and completely renovated by the current owners, including a new kitchen and bathrooms. There is a rich-toned parquet floor throughout, arranged in a herringbone pattern.
This former Art Deco warehouse was originally built in 1930 and then converted into a live/work development in 2001. Sold as ‘shell’ units, the original buyers took on the challenge of fitting out the spaces to their own specification and designing their own internal layouts.
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.
Lease Length: approx. 984 years (999 years from 2001)
