New River head clerkenwell


It is not everyday that remarkable properties come onto the market. With a drive to build quickly and cheaply, much of the design of modern housing is about function over design. So when a property that has bags of character comes onto the market, you can be sure that we are going to be delighted to offer it for sale. With this in mind, we offer this property at the stunning New River Head building. This building was the former home of the Metropolitan Water Board (which later became Thames Water), and has been lovingly transformed into apartments that are full of character and charm. Indeed the property is so remarkable, it has Grade II listed status.


So what about the apartment itself? Well this delightful two bedroom apartment is ideal for a couple or small family. With literally no expense spared, the overall design and specification of the apartment is of the highest order. Exposed brickwork creates the design narrative, combined with wood flooring, light decor and plenty of natural light, the property is stunning from every angle.

Entering the property from the grandeur of the hallway and sweeping staircases you come into the living space. With the exposed brickwork framing the room, the contemporary design makes use of the available natural light. There is room for everything you need, including a dining table. All of the other rooms lead off from the living area which is most certainly the hub of the apartment.
