Description
A cavernous one bedroom apartment of approx. 770sqft internally in need of extensive refurbishment, located on the 3rd floor and comes with spectacular views over Regents Canal.

Internal accommodation is comprised of a bright and airy living-kitchen arrangement in integrated appliances and a superb ceiling height throughout. In addition to this, there is a raised area that could could either be purposed as a home office space or a cosy snug area. Some features of the original building's fabric have been retained, such as the windows, exposed concrete and brickwork, which are highly sough-after.


The main bedroom is large and has a very handy built-in wardrobe and there is a full three-piece bathroom suite accessible from the main hall. The apartment also has an amazing west-facing aspect over Wenlock Basin and Regents Canal.

The Royle Building was originally built as a print works factory and converted into apartments in the 1990s by Davy Smith Architects. Facilities also include a Porter, lift access and superb communal area that runs around the canal side of the building, perfect for an evening drink while watching the world go by.

Location

Set adjacent to the Wenlock Basin, the apartment benefits from a quiet, yet central, location within easy walking distance of both Angel and Old Street stations (Northern Line). For those seeking a short commute, a good number of buses from City Road mean you can reach the City and beyond in around 15 minutes. It’s also just moments from the leafy towpaths of the nearby Regents Canal. Meanwhile Islington’s Upper Street and the much sought after areas of Hoxton & Shoreditch, with their vast array of bars, eateries and nightlife, are minutes from your door. There are also several regeneration projects along City Road and Old Street roundabout which are set to solidify the area's new found reputation as London's prime 'Tech Hub'. The recent regeneratation of Shepherdess Walk Park has also became a mjaor draw for residents of the surrounding area. With a fresh makeover having been given to the childrens play area, the park has become truly tansformed to be more accommodating to young families as well as providing an enclosed 5-a-side football for the more grown-ups.

About Islington

Islington is home to a diverse range of residents and offers a vast choice of property types, from large Georgian squares to modern apartments. Historically, it was once thought of as a deprived area, with the London blitz destroying much of the region. However, post-war rebuilding and rapid gentrification has made it one of London’s most popular locations for well-heeled and cultured residents.
