This spacious, one bedroom apartment is spread over 550 square feet on the third and top floor of a small purpose built local authority block with high private ownership on a road of period terrace houses. Most of the apartment faces south. Its large windows, and expanse of sky, let in plenty of sun and offer a great aspect overlooking the attractive gated communal gardens.
This quiet but central property is within a 5 minutes walk from the King’s Cross St Pancras hub and a 10 minute walk from Euston. As a result it is phenomenally well situated for both central London life (further details provided below) as well as country-wide and international travel. The owner of this property is chain free enabling a simpler, quicker purchase.
Decorated throughout in a modern and neutral style, the spacious main reception easily fits both lounge and dining space. With large windows and a Juliette balcony overlooking the gardens, this room also benefits from good light and sunshine. There is a separate, fully fitted kitchen with integrated modern appliances (oven, dishwasher, and washing machine all under 1 year old). The recently painted and tiled bathroom is a good size with a shower above the bathtub. The bedroom has several built-in wardrobes, and there is an additional half room/walk in closet space for use or storage. Other storage space includes both a loft and a convenient private storage cupboard located on the ground floor. The radiators and heating system for the entire building were all replaced in 2015. There is a secure entry-phone system to control access to the block. The communal gardens and parking area are secured with fob controlled pedestrian and vehicle gates.
Highlights of this extraordinary location include the apartments close proximity to Granary Square and Coal Drop Yard; new attractions in King’s Cross which offers beautiful choreographed fountains, Regent Canal, Central Saint Martins World famous Art and Design College, a large Waitrose, an Everyman Cinema, regular events/exhibitions and a selection of shops, bars, cafes and restaurants.
