This elegant, two-bedroom apartment is positioned on the fourth floor of 350 Goswell Road, a striking, purpose-built apartment building designed by Mackay and Partners. The interiors have been entirely re-designed in recent years by Brendan Woods, promoting the flow of light and life through large sections of glazing across the plan and out onto the apartment’s private balcony.
The street-facing facade presents an arresting pair of angular profiles; the material palette of concrete and steel-grates is immediately established and carries through to the building’s internal courtyard, where it is peacefully countered by mature trees and a rockery.
The interiors seek to mirror this industrial aesthetic, for which the neighbourhood of Clerkenwell has become famous in recent years. High concrete ceilings, oak floorboards, polished-concrete flooring and large sections of glazing define the open-plan communal living spaces.
The kitchen is split across two white Corian work surfaces, orientated around the dining area. Beyond is a spacious living room and entire wall of sliding glazed doors behind, opening out directly onto a private balcony. Part of this space can be partitioned to create a third bedroom for guests and is regularly used by the current owners as a study.
Two further bedrooms are positioned at the rear of the plan, overlooking the rooftops of Clerkenwell below and the receding concrete facade of Goswell Road, towards the Regent’s Canal. Each bedroom has built-in wardrobes, floor-to-ceiling glazing and one has an en-suite bathroom. There is a family bathroom to one side and a large storage cupboard.
Goswell Road runs south from Angel, through Clerkenwell, towards to the Barbican. It runs parallel to St John street outlining an area renowned as a hub for the creative industries and for the quality and variety of its bars and restaurants.
Angel and Upper Street are a short walk away, as is Exmouth Market with its wide range of restaurants and bars including firm local favourite Moro. St Paul’s, Smithfields and the City are within easy reach to the south. Running parallel, St. John Street has a convenient Waitrose, as well as the infamous St John restaurant.
The Barbican Centre, with its world-class cultural programme of cinema, music, theatre, talks and exhibitions, is a few minutes’ walk from the apartment.
Angel is the closest station, less than five minutes’ walk away; and runs Northern line services citywide. St Paul’s and the City are within easy reach to the south. Nearby Farringdon station (Circle, Metropolitan and Hammersmith & City lines and National Rail) provides quick access to the West End and London’s major airports.
