New Property – Blake Tower, Fann St. EC2Y
London, and particularly the City of London area, have a huge number of apartments available to rent. Many of these properties are non-descript new builds that lack the character and charm that really represents what the area is all about. This, unfortunately, is the outcome of increasing urbanisation. But, here at AW Childs estate agents – specialists in the Barbican, Clerkenwell, Farringdon & Islington, we have been offered the opportunity to bring an astonishing, character filled apartment to the market that is just perfect for those who are looking for a little more substance.
Based in Fann Street EC2Y, this property is located in the Blake Tower complex. The home of the former Barbican YMCA, Blake Tower was the brainchild of Chamberlin, Powell & Bon architects who are famous for their iconic work in the Barbican. Their architectural style is exhibited all over the area and Blake Tower was designed to perfectly complement the surrounding area. A building like no other, Blake Tower has been fully refurbished on the inside to an unbelievably high specification. The apartments in particular have been designed with almost obsessive levels of detail as they were designed by by Conran + Partners, an internationally renowned architecture and interior design studio.
Take a walk through any area of the building and you will feel a sense of the sheer technical brilliance of the design. Each apartment has been designed and finished with an incredible focus on specification, light and use of space that ensures that there is nowhere in London that offers a better living experience. Couple the aesthetic with the fact that there is a concierge service for 12 hours a day (07.00 – 19.00), the unbelievable location (Fann Street is located in the heart of the City of London) and the views (including the Shard, the London Eye and the Gherkin), there really is no better option available for those who love the city.
Ok so we have talked about the building, now what about the apartment itself? The apartment that we bring to market is a two bedroom apartment located on the tenth floor of Blake Tower – ensuring an incredible vista of the City of London that cannot be matched. Featuring a contemporary design, the apartment is a light and airy space that makes maximal use of the natural light that is available due to its intelligent design. The property is not only aesthetically pleasing, with large rooms and clever design, the property is also an ideal space for a professional couple or growing family.
So, what about the rooms? Well let’s start with the open plan living area. This space encompasses a stunningly well thought out kitchen and living area that work in total harmony. The useful addition of a breakfast bar offers a clean transition between the two spaces that complement each other perfectly. The kitchen features all of the storage and features that you could possibly need and packs them neatly into a compact space. The living room area also offers a clean, modern look that takes advantage of built-in storage and natural light to create an area for the owners to enjoy and relax in. The room is surprisingly large for an apartment of this type and there is enough room to entertain as there is a large table in the living room.
Now onto the bedrooms. Both continuing the modern airy look, the bedrooms are both on the large size, and are easily big enough to house a growing family, or even offer a place for visitors to stay. Both rooms have stunning built-in wardrobes that ensure a neat space and both have incredible views of the city available via the windows. The master bedroom also features a gorgeous ensuite bathroom that has to be seen to be believed.
Now, finally, there is the main bathroom. Like the ensuite, the main bathroom has been completed to a frankly incredible standard. Finished with floor to ceiling tiling (like the ensuite that matches), the bathroom is a beautiful place to finish the day with a long relaxing soak in the bath (both bathrooms also feature walk-in showers). The combination of the marble and tile offers a stunning look and a high specification finish that is also built to last a lifetime.
As you can see, Blake Tower offers the cream of London living. Stunning design, large rooms and incredible vistas ensure that this property is among the highest specification in the city. For those who love living in London, but also want the highest specification, the property is a natural choice.
