Old Street, London EC1
This excellent three-bedroom maisonette represents a rare opportunity to buy in the heart of the city, at a time of rapid growth and regeneration. Locally known as Redbrick, the estate dates back to the 1970s and displays features typical of the LCC Architects’ Department, set amidst some of the capital’s most striking contemporary buildings.
Steadman Court is nestled behind a small nature reserve, close to Old Street roundabout. The ground floor has been converted and now features an open-plan kitchen/living space making best use of the maisonette’s proportions. Floor-to-ceiling glazed doors open out at the rear onto a leafy patio garden, providing wonderful levels of natural light.
Upstairs, mirrored storage accentuates the sense of space on the landing. The master bedroom, complete with triple glazed windows, overlooks a communal green and is shielded from the road by mature London plane trees. At the rear of the property, two bedrooms are currently configured as a video editing suite, connecting to a lounge via sliding doors.
Old Street Roundabout is preparing to undergo an extensive regeneration project which will see the creation of a newly pedestrianised infrastructure and communal outdoor spaces. The Redbrick Estate has been fully integrated into these plans. A new garden square will compliment the estate’s existing courtyards, while improved pedestrian access will be provided throughout.
Steadman Court is excellently positioned for the restaurants, cafes and bars of Shoreditch, while also offering proximity to more cerebral entertainments; neighbouring St Luke’s is currently home to the London Symphony Orchestra and the Barbican theatre and cinemas are a mere six-minute walk. Neighbouring Whitecross street market, offers some of London’s finest food stalls and nearby Bunhill Fields offers peace and tranquillity in the centre of Tech City.
