Triangle of love
Catherine Golding reports on a remarkable penthouse, located in the heart of the Shoreditch Triangle, with plenty to love about it
With a location in one of London’s most exciting boroughs, a wealth of living space, a terrific terrace and bags of character, there’s lots to love about this loft apartment. And you will…
It is located on Charlotte Road, in the heart of the Shoreditch Triangle, occupies the top floor of a converted warehouse and is on the market with fyfe mcdade’s local Shoreditch office.
It offers a massive 3,080sq ft of internal living space – with both the reception rooms measuring in excess of 40ft. The larger of the two is arranged as a single, voluminous space that possesses plentiful natural light and classic features.
Connecting those two reception rooms is a stylish kitchen, fitted with Bulthaup cabinetry, Gaggenau appliances and industrial style extractors. It is from here that you access the terrace.
The main reception room also benefits from double-height ceilings, original factory loading doors and exposed beams. A spiral staircase leads to a grand master bedroom which is arranged on a mezzanine level along with a contemporary en-suite bathroom.
For a more intimate space, there is a study/guest room, which is accessed off the reception and a further guest shower room. Unusually for such a central location, the property is sold with a secure parking space located in the building behind.
Robert Sternberg, the famous psychologist, who came up with the triangular theory of love, said the three components needed were passion, intimacy and commitment. These are components that will come naturally to you, as you become attached to this amazing apartment.
