A rare opportunity to purchase this unique, five storey Georgian town house, moments from the International transport hub and regeneration zone at Kings Cross St Pancras.
Dating back to 1799, this former Foundry and printworks was part of the original terrace known as 'Field Place'. We believe the sizeable, rear extension added in the 1920's may have originally been a portrait or photographic studio. The current owner, a photographer, was understandably sold on the unique natural light which the S-SW orientation lends to the space. Perfect for his creative purposes. The building planning was converted to fully residential, following the vendors purchase from the Royal Town Planning Institute around 2001.
Spanning in excess of 1850sqft, this considerable property is currently configured as a two bed with multiple reception spaces, including the aforementioned rear extension, with its lightwell ceiling (above which sits the roof terrace).
Entering at ground floor level, one will firstly note something of a rarity - private off street pavement parking demised. The original commercial space is now a double length reception. The lower ground houses an office at the front, with original utility suite and WC adjacent. The rear extension is accessed next to this. An ample (in excess of 360 square foot) space which could very easily be converted to house the main kitchen/diner, it has huge potential to transform the entire dynamic of the property.
Following the staircase up to the first floor, one finds a sizeable kitchen, separate dining room and French windows to access the terrace.
The master bedroom sits gracefully on the second floor, occupying much of the entire level, a large en-suite bathroom annexed, offering separate bath and power shower facilities.
A cascading spiral staircase takes you on, up to a second, large double bedroom occupying much of the top floor, repleat with large balcony and views out over the rear terrace. This bedroom also benefits from its own private WC/wet room.
Kings Cross has fast become one of the most exciting areas of London to live or invest in. So much of the considerable modernisation, infrastructure and regeneration is now completed or under way and, with the redevelopment potential to really make this home your own, early viewings come highly recommended!
