A Well Presented Two Bedroom Apartment Within An Iconic Development

About this property

  • Set within the iconic New River Head Building located on Rosebery Avenue is this well presented two bedroom apartment.

    The New River Head Building is one of the most beautiful buildings in the Clerkenwell area and was the former home of the Metropolitan Water Board. Constructed between 1915 and 1920 and retaining some elements of the previous building dating back to 1693, the building was Grade II* listed in 1950. The building is accessed through a particularly impressive 3m high double door, which opens onto a concierge's desk and vast atrium.

    The apartment offers two double bedrooms, a three piece bathroom suite, a well equipped separate kitchen and well proportioned living/dining room with an east facing aspect. The property further benefits from a secure, allocated gated parking space.

    Additional facilities include a 24 hour concierge, a gymnasium, vast communal gardens and access to the grand Oak Room which residents can use for functions.

  • Much of the area including Barnsbury, Canonbury and De Beauvoir Town was developed in the Georgian and Victorian eras and retains many of the original architectural features of those times.
  • The grand residential homes, courtyards and squares across the district have established Islington as a premier address in London. Islington benefits from some spectacular parks and city gardens. Highbury Fields, situated just to the east of Highbury Gardens, is the largest open space in the borough of Islington. Across its 29 acres there are recreational facilities including eight tennis courts, a café, swimming pool and a football court at the north end. The park is surrounded by highly desirable residences.
