Take one impressive brewery conversion with high ceilings, cornicing and original windows and add splashes of colour, good taste, designer furniture and quirky artwork and you get an impressive owner’s own home on the market to rent for the first time. This property is the true antidote to the off white walls with standard landlord furniture package which aims to appeal to the masses. This property is marmite; the enduring metaphor for the love it or hate it property. Someone out there is going to love it and then they are going to eat it all up.
About the Apartment
The presentation of this duplex on the raised and lower ground floor is immaculate but not sterile. It is graceful but not elegant in the way we sometimes politely mean “a bit dated”. Once inside the development we greet the concierge who knows your name and then walk through the courtyard to find our own front door which has been made welcoming with planting and a little bench at its approach.
Reception Room / Kitchen
Inside the generous hallway we come to the gateway between the two main entertaining rooms; the large eat-in kitchen and the reception room. The reception room has been vibrantly decorated in green with show pieces to both sit on, eat at or gaze at. There is a generous dining table for more formal entertaining. The large kitchen with sparkly granite worktops and space for breakfast table overlooks the landscaped courtyard only accessed by residents.
Bedrooms / Bathrooms
Walk past the Mondrian inspired stairs down to the bedroom area and you are met with three generous double bedrooms, excellent storage space, two contemporary fully tiled and recently modernised bathrooms (one is in fact an en-suite shower room) and some good hallway space that could easily house those accummulated and much cherished books or accommodate a home study. Ceilings are still high on the lower ground and windows are a quirky feature since some are a crescent shape. In total, the internal floorpsace extends to 1,382 sq ft (128.55 sqm).
About the Area
Dover Court is part of Clerkenwell’s boozy history since it forms part of the original façade to a converted brewery development on St John Street where all the buildings are named after famous castles. St John Street is a long and wide thoroughfare running from Islington in the north to Farringdon where it ends at Smithfield market. Originally it was part of a cattle run from the farms of Barnet.
The nearest station is Farringdon for Circle, Hammersmith and City and Metropolitan line services as well as extensive rail services to Hertfordshire, Bedfordshire Sussex and Kent not to mention Luton and Gatwick airports.
£800 per week on a furnished basis.
