Built in the early 1900s as a bookbinding warehouse on the edge of an iconic garden square
Exacting attention to detail paired with a wonderfully historic setting has created a collection of four exquisite apartments on the south side of Barnsbury Square. Truly distinctive in their aesthetic in this part of London, the semi-industrial bones of this former bookbinding workshop have been transformed into well-considered apartments with warehouse proportions and features. In these two expansive aluminium-framed windows welcome views of the gardens opposite while tactile wood, graphite and brass establish a layered textural finish throughout each apartment. The restaurants, cafes, and independent shops of Highbury and Angel are a short walk away.
This incredible collection of four apartments is set across the ground floor of a former bookbinders workshop. The apartments each have a different configuration, but they are united by the quality of light and materials that run throughout. There are two one-bedroom apartments and two two-bedroom apartments currently for sale. All have access to a courtyard garden or a balcony. Please see the floor plans for more detailed information.
These two one-bedroom apartments sit at the front of the building. Both are centred around large open-plan kitchen, dining and living rooms with soaring ceilings. In these rooms, wide warehouse windows draw in light and frame views of the garden square. Textured graphite cabinetry is topped with sleek, cool quartz creating pleasingly layered kitchens with plenty of storage. Engineered wooden floors run throughout the living rooms. Both apartments have ample space for a distinct dining and living area, with one apartment zoned by a kitchen peninsula, establishing a wonderful sense of flow.
The bedrooms sit at the front of the apartment, enjoying the same garden views as the living rooms. Beautifully crafted built-in wardrobes ensure plenty of storage space, and warming carpet runs across the floors.
Both apartments open at the front to a slim terrace lined with slate tiles overlooking the leafy square. These are accessed through dramatic half-glazed warehouse doors in keeping with the building's original layout.
The bathrooms are finished in rich blue glazed tiles, subtle terrazzo details and large-form porcelain tiles across the floors. Both apartments have generous utility rooms and separate storage cupboards, making these incredibly functional spaces.
