"This apartment retains many of its original features, including large, double-glazed, factory style windows, a beautiful pitched roof and spruce pine beams."
This extraordinary two-bedroom apartment is positioned on the upper floors of a former canal warehouse, forming part of Benyon Wharf, a gated community backing on to the Regent’s canal in De Beauvoir Town.
The building was originally home to the administration house for the Regent’s canal and served many of the surrounding factories. It has been fully renovated by the current owners and now forms part of the Benyon Wharf development, a group of canal-side apartments and live/work spaces arranged around a beautiful bank-side communal deck.
Internally, this apartment is configured around an expansive living, kitchen and dining room with extraordinarily high ceilings and exposed spruce pine beams. Five beautifully arched windows to the south-east bathe the entirety of this floor in wonderful levels of natural light.
The second, mezzanine floor is comprised of a large master bedroom and study, organised around the beautiful supporting beams of the warehouse roof. There is also a large diamond shaped window, which looks down over the communal areas, drawing light across the upper floor.
This apartment retains many of its original features, including large, double-glazed, factory style windows, a beautiful pitched roof and spruce pine beams. Access is gained via a wharf-style gateway, which has private access to Kingsland towpath and the Kingsland basin at the rear.
Underground parking spaces are available for residents and can be purchased or rented from the freeholder.
Benyon Wharf is brilliantly positioned in De Beauvoir, on the Kingsland Road, minutes from Haggerston station. The bars, cafes and restaurants of Hoxton and Shoreditch are close by, including the Clove Club, Towpath Cafe, Shoreditch House and Lyle’s. There also are many local galleries nearby including the Geffrye Museum, Sarabande Foundation and Victoria Miro. Locally, the De Beauvoir Deli is an excellent stop for provisions.
Haggerston is ideally positioned for green spaces including London Fields, Stonebridge Gardens and Shoreditch park. Broadway market is a short walk along the canal with a wide array of brilliant food stalls trading every Saturday.
Haggerston station provides quick links citywide on the London Overground, with connections to Canary Wharf via Canada Water. Regular buses also run to the city and beyond from Kingsland road.
