Just behind Hoxton Square and nestled on top of this warehouse building, is this stunning penthouse, designed jointly by Mae Architects and Carl Turner Architects.
Originally designed for the former owners, the brief was to create a home that maximised light and space whilst providing a large living area that could double up as a meeting room if necessary. With this in mind, it meant that the entertaining area is by far the main attraction of the apartment.
Occupying over a third of the overall space, the reception has a sliding oak and glass wall, that opens onto the private decked terrace. Being constructed from translucent glass, the easterly light is diffused as it shines through, creating a glow rather than a glare.
The long galley style kitchen is flooded with natural light from the large skylight and the neutral cupboards and oak worktops blend in with the oak floors that feature throughout the apartment.
Set to the rear, is a large master bedroom which can be screened off from the hallway by a sliding door. There is a stylish ensuite shower room and large floor to ceiling wardrobes.
The second bedroom makes an ideal guest room or study and there is a further bathroom.
Spanning close to 960sqft, with wonderful city views from the reception and terrace, the home has featured in both Grand Designs magazine and the Evening Standard. It is ideal for someone who appreciates design and wants a unique, yet practical space. Being the only residential apartment in the building also means that there is complete privacy during the evenings and weekends.
Located at the southerly end of Hoxton Street, it is perfect to access the many excellent restaurants, bars and cafes around the area. Home to some great independent boutiques - Start, Goodhood and KK outlet - to name just a few.
