A genuine two bedroom loft apartment in The Lab Building – a grade II listed residential development of the former New River Head Laboratories for Thames Water.

The Lab Building was built in 1936-8 and designed by the architect John Murray Easton who, in 1955, was awarded the Royal gold medal for his contribution to architecture by the Royal Institute of British Architects. The building was converted into luxury loft apartments in 1999 by St James’ homes.

The apartment is arranged over the upper floors of this Art Deco development and sits amongst grade II listed private gardens. It further benefits from private parking, daytime concierge, lift and a striking staircase to the front of the building. Residents of the building also have use of New River Head’s Oak room which can be used for private functions.

Measuring over 1,100 sq/ft, this south facing apartment has two very generous bedrooms, one with en-suite and a cleverly designed dressing area; a further recently refurbished bathroom; a large high-ceilinged reception room; a private south facing balcony off a second living area/dining room and a light filled separate kitchen on the second level of the apartment.

This apartment has been fully refurbished throughout and designed in a whimsical and fun fashion creating a truly boutique yet functional space in this iconic development.

The Lab Building is located on Rosebery Avenue, offering a number of transport links including Angel Station (Northern line), King Cross and Farringdon Stations (Metropolitan, Circle and Hammersmith & City lines, Thameslink and Elizabeth line from 2019) and numerous bus routes, providing excellent access all over London and out of London. As well as being walking distance to the West End, Clerkenwell itself has extensive range of restaurants, bars and galleries, as well as being in close proximity to Islington's Upper Street, The City and Shoreditch.
