"A long run of original factory windows on the north side, and steel-framed windows with double-glazed units on the south elevation, result in exceptional levels of natural light throughout the space."
Occupying the entire first floor of a former clothing factory is this wonderfully authentic two-bedroom loft apartment. Positioned on Nile Street, a short walk from Old Street and Shoreditch, the apartment represents a rare opportunity to buy in the heart of the city, set amidst some of the capital’s most striking contemporary and former industrial buildings.
Measuring approximately 2,200 sq ft internally, the apartment has been recently refurbished and reconfigured. In line with this work, Hackney Council has recently granted change of use, from live/work, to purely residential. The apartment now offers incredibly versatile accommodation in an open-plan. Two bedrooms, one with en-suite bathroom, positioned along one side of the space, are the only segregated areas; the remaining expansive lateral space allows for any number of living arrangements, configured around a free-standing kitchen.
The apartment has a north-south orientation with a long run of original factory windows on the north side, and steel-framed windows with double-glazed units on the south elevation, resulting in exceptional levels of natural light that penetrate the space.
There are original pine floorboards throughout the apartment, original joinery, beautiful areas of exposed brick, as well as original cast iron pillars and former fire door. An original full-height hoist door looks out over the quiet street below. Fixtures and fittings have been fully modernised and include Corian worktops, Dornbracht taps, Smeg and Miele appliances and bathroom fittings by Hansgrohe Axor.
An extensive programme of external refurbishments to the building have just been completed, including a new roof.
Nile Street is peacefully located a short walk from Old Street Underground (Northern Line), and within striking distance of Liverpool Street and the City. The shops, restaurants and bars of Islington and Shoreditch are within easy reach.
