The Warner building certainly houses some of the most outstanding, authentic loft apartments in London, and as one of the most visually and architecturally impressive buildings in Clerkewell, it has a wonderful history.
About the Building
A former printers, manufacturer of lenses and clothing and The Post office Stores Department, The Warner Building was constructed in 1937 – 38, designed by Waite and Waite for Shropshire House Limited, inspired by the designs of Richard Meier’s High Museum in Atlanta.
In my opinion it is the finest example of an Art Deco building to be found in Clerkenwell as well as being one of the most sought after residential buildings in the area.
What is so magical about the Warner Building, apart from its sharp, clean and extremely white appearance is that you truly feel as if you are buying into a “loft lifestyle”. High ceilings, huge windows, open spaces and exposed concrete ceilings offer an exciting approach to City living.
About the Apartment
As with many lofts, this apartment does not conform to standard living, it offers a wonderful, open feel allowing flexibility of use yet in no way feeling compromised. The current accommodation offers versatile living options with huge reception spaces, separate sleeping areas, two bathrooms as well as secure parking a terrace.
About the Area
At the centre of London’s ever growing design district, Clerkenwell still retains the charm of old London living yet all the vibrancy expected of a large Metropolis. It continues to offer the very best fine dining and eclectic street food markets, bespoke shops, art galleries and designer furniture shops.
Its location is superb, within a short walk of Farringdon Underground Station (Circle, Metropolitan, Hammersmith and City Lines) as well as mainline links and of course will benefit from Crossrail due to open in 2019 which will offer direct access to four of London’s International Airports in under 50 minutes!.
This is a wonderful opportunity to buy an important piece of Clerkenwell History.
Asking Price: £1,200,000
