About the apartment
Positioned on the seventh floor (with lift) in what is one of Clerkenwell’s most prestigious blocks, this is a perfect warehouse gem. It’s the most perfect apartment for entertaining.
Once through the front door, the generous entrance hall leads through double doors to the 50′ reception room with raised wooden floors affording stunning 180 degree views of the skyline including St Paul’s Cathedral, the Shard, the BT Tower, St Pancras station and Centrepoint.
The open plan kitchen is positioned to the north end with a separate utility room. The wraparound terrace can be accessed via a selection of floor to ceiling sliding doors. The principal bedroom is south facing and benefits from a bespoke built in dressing room and en-suite marbled bathroom with sunk bath and separate shower room leading to its own private balcony.
The second double bedroom equally benefits from excellent storage and has use of a large family marbled bathroom with feature curved wall with borrowed light via tasteful glass bricks.
Total internal area extends to over 1,800 sq ft with an additional 970 sq ft of terrace space. Additional features include integrated sound system and underground parking. The property is offered on an unfurnished basis.
The Paramount Building was built in 1936 to1938 by the builders John Laing & Son Ltd and designed by Culpin & Son for the manufacturing and warehousing of shoes by podiatrist William Matthias Scholl.
