Apartment overview - owner's description
Originally a smokehouse for nearby Smithfield market, this home exudes historic character and typifies the Victorian industrial architecture that Clerkenwell is famous for. Uniquely, this spacious apartment has undergone a complete renovation to produce magazine-worthy interiors with original mid-century pieces and luxurious finishes. We won't blame you for never wanting to leave; however, it's ideally located near Farringdon, so hopping on the Underground to explore the city couldn't be easier.
From the moment you step into the super spacious open-plan living space, you'll be awed by its churchlike aura, with triple-height vaulted ceilings, dual-aspect huge windows and striking structural beams. Centre stage is a generously sized corner sofa that's not only stylish but perfect to sink into for movie nights with the full HD projector.
Those looking to have a quiet moment have a few options here – try the cosy mezzanine lounge, the separate reading room, or retreat to one of the bedrooms. Both come with comfy seating corners that are ideal for a read in peace or to the rhythm of your tunes playing through the Sonos speakers, also available throughout the home. Superb attention to detail is shown in the exquisite choice of opulent Liberty velvets covering the antique chairs.
Back in the main reception room, your group can gather round the deep-walnut Danish table and chairs for a succulent meal prepared in the high-end Gaggenau kitchen. Of equally high spec are the two marble-lined ensuite bathrooms – each comes with a sumptuous rainfall shower and the finest Aesop products, while the master suite also benefits from a striking contemporary bathtub that's begging to be filled with bubbles.
More active guests can make use of the private water rowing machine.
Guests will have access to the entirety of the apartment.

Tucked away off St. John Street, the old smokehouse is pleasantly quiet given its central location. Within a short stroll one can reach the historic financial district of the City of London to the south, trendy Shoreditch to the east, or the tourist hotspots of central London to the west.
There's a number of well-rated restaurants, bars and pubs within a few minutes' walk, and Clerkenwell's culinary reputation is well known. Try the original St. John restaurant for consistently great nose-to-tail dishes, Club Gascon for classic fine French dining or Exmouth market for a no-frills foodie heaven. One of London's oldest pubs, that's also high on our list, is just nearby – The Jerusalem Tavern on Britton Street. Finally, visit The Eagle on Farringdon Road, which sparked the gastropub revolution.
History-steeped Clerkenwell is most known today for its many furniture boutiques and architecture studios, so it's no surprise that it's during Clerkenwell Design Week that this unique neighbourhood comes alive. With open-door events, exhibitions and many design installations, this date in the calendar offers endless opportunities for socialising and networking within the industry.
Farringdon Underground and train stations, as well as Barbican station, are all within a few minutes' walk from your front door. However, we recommend hopping on London's ubiquitous double-decker buses to take in the city views. For buses towards the centre or Shoreditch and further east, head to the stops on Clerkenwell Road. For south and north London destinations, including Angel, the stops at Goswell Road are well serviced.
