Catherine Golding reports on a truly dazzling apartment set within a secluded Clerkenwell courtyard
Within a busy city such as London, seclusion can be hard to find – but not with this property located in Dallington Street, Clerkenwell. Created around a central, landscaped courtyard – complete with weeping cedar pines – is this superb, cloistered development and within it is this glamorous apartment. The property has been beautifully refurbished and provides all the seclusion you could wish for.
On the market with Hurford Salvi Carr, the spectacular apartment has been refurbished with great imagination and thought. The result is a wonderful home. It is set behind a discreet gated entrance and has the advantage of a day porter – as well as a secure underground parking space.
This unique development was designed by James Lambert, the local architects, for Dallington Lofts Limited.
It is located on the first floor, however due to the design of the building it’s really a second floor apartment and faces the favoured courtyard view.
The accommodation is spacious and well laid out, comprising a huge reception room with floor-to-ceiling windows, a recessed fully-integrated kitchen/dining room, master bedroom with en-suite bathroom and second double bedroom with guest shower room. There is also the benefit of a terrace and ample storage throughout the apartment with superb built-in wardrobes in both the bedrooms.
So, if you love good design, plus crave seclusion and need to ‘get away from it all’ once in a while, then we feel this could be the answer. Somewhere you could enjoy living, relax and unwind.
