Alternative property of the month - March
by Housesimple on 3rd March 2017
Industrial chic is everywhere at the moment, and this month's property is the perfect example of this popular design. Set inside an old nuts and bolts factory, this spacious one-bedroom flat really makes the most of exposed brick, iron and glass. The property value is quite high at £1,100,000, but considering it's in the heart of Clerkenwell and spread over two stories, we think it might just be worth it.
One of the most outstanding things to note about this property is the mezzanine, which overlooks the downstairs reception room. You enter the property upstairs, on the ground floor. Here you'll find a good-sized living room and a cozy bespoke kitchen (complete with an Aga). Climb down the cast-iron spiral staircase to the lower ground floor, and you'll find the bathroom with its claw-foot tub and suspended ceiling shower. The very spacious bedroom is down here too and has its own patio – perfect for relaxing outside with a glass of wine on summer evenings.
An ideal location
The property overlooks Spa Fields Park and is just a short stroll from Exmouth Market, a lunchtime street food market open on weekdays. Clerkenwell is well known as a foodie mecca (if you're selling a property here, you should definitely be targeting gastronomes) with a range of Michelin-starred restaurants, hip cafés and buzzing bars.
Perfect for professionals
Despite this flat's unrivalled location in the heart of the action, the area is quiet at night. The flat's glass-frontage means plenty of sunlight during the day, while the electric blinds mean perfect darkness at night. You can have a great night out in the neighbourhood, stumble home, and still have a good sleep. As for your commute, forget about it. Farringdon and Angel tube stations are less than half a mile away from this home as the crow flies: perfect for quick trip to the City or the West End.
