About this property

  • This light and spacious two double bedroom apartment was re-designed by the current owners in 2014 to create an open plan layout and contemporary finish. Original features such as the beautiful Crittal windows have been retained. Through the refurbishment they have achieved a unique, spacious, stylish and wonderfully light space.

    Finished in 1938 this Art Deco building offers an indoor swinging pool, gym, extensive roof terrace, secure bike storage, a lift, post room, porter and beautifully manicured communal gardens. The building is immaculately maintained and underwent refurbishment including re-painting of the exterior in 2017.

    Entering the apartment to the right is the open plan kitchen / reception room, with stripped wooden flooring and ample space for a seating area as well as a large dining table under the south west facing windows. The kitchen has been fitted with modern white gloss units, two fridges and features a breakfast bar for casual dining. The original layout of apartments within the building feature a separate smaller kitchen so this open plan layout is a unique design to this property.

    The reception space features bespoke floor to ceiling storage space across the entirety of the back wall, the perfect place to house electronics and display personal belongings creatively. To the right of the shelving is an inbuilt desk which can be used as a home office or study area.

    At the other end of the apartment are two double bedrooms, both with south west facing Crittal windows and generous built in wardrobes. At the end of the corridor there is a useful storage cupboard and the hallway has been cleverly designed with discreet inbuilt storage for coats and shoes.

    The bathroom features a separate shower unit and bathtub situated under the window and is again fitted with excellent built in storage space.

    This apartment makes a wonderful home and also has the security to make a perfect pied de terre.

    We wish to inform prospective buyers of this property that the seller is connected to an employee of Savills.
