Islington apartment description

Wow factor

A honeypot for creative types, Clerkenwell is where the capital's media minds gather to flex their mental muscles. Yet behind the glass and chrome there's a medieval presence in this part of the city, and the ad agencies sit cheek-by-jowl with tiny churches and cobbled alleyways. It’s here that you'll find St John's Street 2, with it’s NYC industrial aesthetic courtesy of the home’s concrete ceilings, and the state-of-the-art spotlights that shine down upon exposed pipes and stripped wood floors. With its huge windows, and designer furniture that would satisfy even the most hardened of fashionistas, if you're looking for the next big thing, call off the search – this is it.

Daddy cool

Your recently-retired host was a private investor. He and his large family spend most of their time at their main home in Cheshire, but he loves to nip down to the city for a little bit of glitz.

Fun factory

It’s the contrasts that elevate this home from the rest; the glow of the colourful modern art upon the white walls, pale wood alongside raw concrete, verdant foliage reflected in the ceiling’s stainless steel pipes. The main living space is quite simply spectacular. Full-length doors open out onto the balcony, and the dining table seats a generous eight. The sleek sofas transform into two double beds, there’s a small study out in the hall, while up the steps, you’ll find a kitchen so modern it’s practically space-age.

There’s more concrete on show in the simple twin bedroom. A triumph of minimalism, you’ll sleep deeply between our cool, crisp sheets. The family bathroom is reminiscent of a luxury hotel, with its grey marble and supersized towel rail, laden with the fluffiest white cotton. The master bedroom is a haven in snowy white. Large and airy, you’ll love the vertical radiator, the desk and the bucket chair, while the ensuite is just enormous, with a tub, more grey marble, and a powerful shower.

Next big thing

Will you mosey over to Smithfield Market and feast upon the city’s best bacon sarnies at Michelin-starred St John? Will it be an hour or two in the cute boutiques of Exmouth Market, followed by London’s best tapas in Moro? Or how about a concert at the Barbican? Modern dance at Sadler’s Wells? Shop on nearby Upper Street, or jump on a bus to Covent Garden. The tube from Farringdon to Oxford Circus takes fifteen minutes.
