Viewing Day: Saturday 28th April
Quietly situated at the rear of an imposing former Victorian school building close to Hoxton Square, is this wonderfully bright apartment with private terrace.
The property is situated on the first floor (there is no lift) with entry to an expansive open-plan kitchen, dining area and living room with oak flooring throughout. Sash windows across two aspects flood the space with natural light and rise from floor to ceiling at the centre of the plan. Here glazed double doors open to a sheltered terrace with timber decking.
Ceilings extend to dramatic volume allowing space for plenty of storage within cabinets above the kitchen, which has teak worktops and integrated appliances. At the far end is a study area and a partitioned bedroom with built-in wardrobes. The bathroom is tiled in solid sandstone and paired with period fixtures.
The apartment can be found in Hoxton House, a red-brick building situated at the southern end of Hoxton Street. It is a two-minute walk from Hoxton Square, which was completed in 1720 and designed to emulate existing squares in west of London. During the 19th century the square and surrounding streets became the centre of Shoreditch’s furniture and carpentry trade. Today, the immediate area has an exciting mix of restaurants and galleries, including Mark Hix’s Tramshed, Shoreditch House, Ace Hotel, Hales Gallery, Parasol Unit and Victoria Miro Gallery. The shops of Redchurch Street and Spitalfields are all within striking distance.
Old Street Station (Northern Line) and Hoxton station (London Overground) are a few minutes’ walk away. London Liverpool Street is within 15 minutes’ walk (Circle, Metropolitan, Central lines and National Rail).
