Macready House, formerly marital housing quarters for the Metropolitan Police, is now an elegant building, home to a collection of luxury apartments.
Serviced by helpful porters, who will sign for your packages 24-hours a day, step into the gilded, mirrored atrium of Macready House, where to the right a decorative glass panel, designed by Daedalian Glass Studios, showcases an etched vista of Londons skyline.
Stroll through the elevated, communal garden, planted with all manner of flowers and fragrant honeysuckle, before taking the lift up to the sixth floor.
OWNER QUOTE: The communal roof garden is really nice in summer, you can take your food down and eat outside. It gets lots of sun.
Step into the outer hallway, where hardwood flooring extends throughout the apartment. Crisply redecorated in white, a second door separates this entrance hall from the main apartment, keeping it draught free, quiet and cosy. Ahead, a cupboard proffers plentiful space and shelving to stash your shoes and even a foldaway bike.
Sense the Scandinavian feel in the sitting-dining room, located through the inner hallway and to the right, where a selection of wood furniture, sourced from bespoke designer Unto This Last, located at their open workshop on Brick Lane. Imbuing the apartment with a mellow hipster feel, white and wood décor harmonise in the glow from the modest uplighting to the walls.
Dine at the table, beneath the gentle slope of the attic roof, looking out towards the skyline reflected in the glass etchings seen in the atrium below. Well illuminated, a window looking out towards a lightwell also helps create a bright and roomy feel.
OWNER QUOTE: I travel a lot for work, but it always feels like a cosy, upbeat, friendly space to return home to.
Note the whimsical splashes of colour to the door handles, as you turn the teal knob and enter into the kitchen, along the hallway and to the right.
Chrome sockets reflect the quality finish of this apartment, with views out over the variegated heights of Londons buildings beyond. Fully equipped with a dishwasher, fridge freezer, brand new gas hob, oven and 1.5 stainless steel sink, everything you need is at hand.
Designed for those who love to cook, note the prevalence of surface space; ideal for slicing and dicing and preparing Friday night feasts. Plenty of cupboard and drawer space for all your utensils and essentials too.
Storage is also available in the hallway, where a full height cupboard is fitted with shelving for all your cleaning equipment and more.
Ideal for visitors, a guest WC located across from the kitchen and next door to the storage cupboard, has recently been retiled and grouted, creating a crisp and pristine white space.
Beyond the red-handled door is the sumptuous bedroom; spacious and serene, and once more embodying the minimalist and warm Scandi-vibe in its furnishings.
Adjust the light to your preference; adorn the window, framing views out over the city skyline, looking out in the direction of Hyde Park, dappled in twinkling lights as evening falls.
On the penthouse level, the sloping attic ceiling provides a comforting feel, with dimmable lighting to the walls. Hang your clothing in the built-in wardrobes, while there is plenty of space for a couple of chests of drawers and bedside tables.
So spacious is this bedroom, that a former walk-in-wardrobe has been transformed into a work-space. Fitted with cupboards and shelves, there is separate desk space for two allowing you to work at home comfortably.
Slip through to the ensuite, to refresh and relax in the spacious master bathroom.
Tiled in blue and white, light streams in through a large window which opens to provide views down over the garden and illuminated swimming pool roof below. Views of the shard are also framed through this window; another reminder of this homes enviable location.
Sink back into a soothing bath, or stand beneath the high pressure from the shower for a refreshing morning spritz. Mirrored cabinet storage is available above the WC, with an additional mirror above the wash basin and a tower of storage drawers to the side. There is even a bidet in this bountiful bathroom.
