Located in the heart of East London this three bed apartment is simply too cool for school.
Don't be fooled by the word 'apartment' – this property is seriously huge. The grand entrance is very in-keeping with the greatness that lives behind the door.
Open-plan living room
The second floor comprises a stunning, triple aspect open-plan kitchen and reception room. Decorated with plush velvet and glam metallic touches, this room is effortlessly chic. Two sets of original French doors open out onto the impressive private roof terrace.
Full height sliding doors allow the dining room to be closed off. Making the space private from the living room – for more intimate dining occasions.
The kitchen features contemporary white units with wooden worksurfaces. An original Pop Art feature wall holds court in this room. The bold artwork adds a modern touch the characterful period property.
Floor-to-ceiling windows and doors flood this master bedroom with natural light. The balcony adds a welcome escape to the outside space.
Complete with a walk-in dressing room, the spare bedroom is far from shabby.
Small-scale grey mosaic tiles keep the bathroom simple but stylish
The generous outdoor terrace is accessed via two doors from the open-plan living space on the second floor. The master bedroom on the third floor has doors leading out to a balcony area, overlooking the terrace.
In the heart of Hoxton, London, having this much outdoor space is extremely rare, and would command a price premium. There's more than enough room to host many a summer soiree.
This former school turned apartment is currency on the market with Savills, (opens in new tab) with a guide price of £2.1 million.
