A stunning Victorian schoolhouse conversion mixing high spec, contemporary décor with character and history. This private, gated development is enviably located in the East Canonbury conservation area just a short walk from De Beauvoir, Angel and Essex Road station.
Converted into apartments in 2009, this outstanding duplex apartment has been lovingly renovated throughout. Upon entering the main living area your eyes are immediately drawn to the vaulted doubled-height ceiling and huge sash windows letting in bags of natural light. The recently fitted Oak floors lead into a modern open-plan kitchen with granite worktops. On the same floor there is a double bedroom with new carpets, a large bathroom, a storage cupboard and the staircase leading to an impressive upper floor where there is a master bedroom which looks down into the main reception, a brand new en-suite bathroom and more storage space.
Comments from the owner…
When I first walked into the apartment, I knew this was my new home. I just loved the high ceilings and the enormous windows bringing in sunlight even on winter days. I find it a very therapeutic place to read on the sofa, occasionally looking up into the sky. It gives me a sense of freedom and space while being in the middle of London
