About this property

  • Savills are delighted to present this magnificent apartment set in the ‘The Recording Studio' development on Highbury New Park. The building is steeped in history. It was originally built in 1881 as the church hall to St Augustine Church. In the 1960's the building became the home of the renowned Wessex Sound Studios. In 1965 George Martin, the legendary producer of The Beatles, bought the studios and made of it one of the hottest rock hubs in the music industry. The list of musicians who recorded here is incredible – they include The Rolling Stones, The Clash, Queen, The Sex Pistols and many more world famous acts. In 2006 the building was converted to its current form as a residential gated development known as ‘The Recording Studio' with eight apartments and one townhouse.

    The apartment we offer is a top floor property within the main building. The unique features in this apartment are simply breath-taking with beautiful exposed roof beams and rafters throughout and fantastic exposed brick feature walls. The ceiling rises up to a great height with the line of the roof giving the apartment a wonderful volume throughout. The open plan kitchen / reception is of extremely generous proportions with plenty of space for a large dining table and ample soft seating and lots of room between. The main bedroom is a fantastic size with walk-through wardrobe leading to a beautifully appointed en-suite shower room. There is also a large amount of eaves storage accessible via the bathroom and the bedroom. The second bedroom is also a very good size and offers a full wall of built-in wardrobes. Completing the accommodation is the family bathroom which is bathed in natural light and again gives a wonderful feeling of space.

    This is a truly unique property offered in excellent condition and is available as a chain free purchase. The property also comes with an allocated off-street parking space. This is an extremely rare opportunity to acquire such a property with Islington's period housing stock being mainly Victorian and Georgian townhouses.
