Shepherdess Walk: Style and Substance in London
Luxurious contemporary style needn’t lack character, as the Shepherdess Walk property in London reveals. This eye-catching warehouse-style building is set in close proximity to the popular areas of Shoreditch, Old Street and Islington, and plays host to a second floor apartment that would be sure to get anyone dreaming of a move to the capital. For those who demand proof, estate agent Savills has allowed us a glimpse inside…
The loft apartment epitomises aspirational modern living with beautifully decorated rooms designed to showcase the huge space to its full potential. Its current owner has restored the property to provide the lucky new occupier with a stylish and functional base in the big city, and boasting approximately 2,700 square feet of light and airy rooms, it’s no surprise that the apartment greets its visitors with a fresh and open atmosphere.
There are three bedrooms, all of which benefit from the same contemporary feel and abundance of space as the rest of the property: crisp white walls, expansive windows, and plenty of room for the large desks underneath the window – what a place to work! With an en suite for each of the three bedrooms and an extra WC for good measure, the luxury continues.
Those who like to cook, or simply enjoy the prestige of having plenty of kitchen space, can revel in the stunning fitted kitchen with its sleek white units, bar sinks, modern pendant lighting and wooden flooring that effortlessly merges with the wall and “hidden” door. The pantry and additional store room serve as a reminder of the level of indulgence the apartment provides. The kitchen area itself flows gracefully into the breathtakingly large living room/dining area, making it the layout ideal for entertaining.
The living room’s two walls of enormous windows capture the eye as soon as you enter and turn the room into a real light-trap, while pillars and beams evoke a more industrial past.
Just the right blend of unfussy lines, sleek finishes and ultra-modern décor, this apartment also has stand-out character thanks to the abundance of light, the clever layout and the fact that it’s ready to cater to its new owner’s every need.
