An incredibly spacious two bedroom apartment situated on the fifth floor of this iconic development next to Regents canal with incredible views of the London skyline.
On entering the apartment, the first thing that hits you is the sheer size of it. At just under 1000 sq ft it is a rarity to be afforded so much space in a modern development.
Through the hallway is an open plan kitchen & living room. The dual aspect floor to ceiling windows perfectly frame London's iconic skyline and stretches over the open spaces of Shoreditch park. This property certainly has the wow factor. The south west aspect also means the room is flooded with natural light. The kitchen and island breakfast bar has integrated appliances and is finished in a solid granite work top.
The apartment has two double bedrooms (one en-suite) with large built in wardrobes in both with the main bathroom finished in a natural stone tile.
The apartment benefits from 24 hour porterage, secure underground parking, a canal side gym, co-op and a fantastic café.
Gainsborough Studios lies with the Regent’s canal to its north boundary and with Shoreditch park on the south side of the building. A short walk will take you to Old Street tube or numerous bus routes will take you through the City, West End or up to Dalston and beyond.
The benefit of the canal affords you scenic walking or cycling access to Angel, Broadway Market or Victoria Park, whilst Shoreditch and Hoxton Square is a short walk away through the park.
Gainsborough was first a power station for the Great Northern & City Railway; it was later converted into a film Studio where it produced a number of melodramas in the 1940's. After the departure of Michael Balcon the founder of Gaumont British to MGM-British, Gainsborough Studios began producing more popular films such as Oh, Mr Porter! (1937) and Hitchcock's The Lady Vanishes (1938).
The former studios were demolished in 2002 and flats, designed by architects Munkenbeck and Marshall, were built on the site incorporating some walls of the original power station. A large sculpture of Hitchcocks’ head was erected in memory of the late director which resides in the courtyard of the development, serving as a reminder of his earlier work there.
