In the heart of the Shoreditch Triangle and with planning permission to add an additional floor and roof terrace is this fantastic two-bedroom penthouse.
Set across the third and fourth floors of an attractive period building and with in excess of 200 years remaining on the lease, the current layout consists of a large open plan kitchen / dining / reception on the lower floor which extends to nearly 900sqft and is tastefully finished with parquet flooring, shuttered windows and a modern kitchen with fully integrated appliances. The space is accessed directly by lift and opens out to a 570sqft fully demised south facing terrace with views towards the city and day long exposure to the sun.
Upstairs there are two spacious double bedrooms, the larger with access to a modern en suite bathroom whilst a further bathroom sits off the hall.
Planning has been granted to add an additional 800sqft of internal space with the expansion of the existing fourth floor and creation of a further storey above within a striking glazed structure which would also include a second 500sqft terrace on the very top with stunning 360 degree views.
The remodelled property has been designed to transform the existing reception / kitchen into a grand master suite which opens out on to the existing terrace and includes built in storage and a large en suite with separate bath and shower and his and hers sinks. The remaining space will function as an entry foyer with seating area. Upstairs will remain much the same with the two bedrooms being enlarged slightly thanks to the removal of the sloping roofs and incorporated so that both will have bathrooms attached.
Situated on the newly created fifth floor will be an open plan kitchen / dining / reception with a fully glazed eastern aspect and the western boasting large Juliet balconies. In addition, stairs will lead to the 500sqft roof terrace which will have uninterrupted views and become one of Shoreditch’s most secluded roof gardens.
Post extension, the internal space will be close to 2,400sqft with an additional 1,000sqft of outside space spread across the two terraces and with planning permission granted and the potential to specify the internal fit out, the property offers the rare opportunity to create your ideal penthouse in one of Shoreditch’s most sought after locations.
