A stylish three-level house in a former warehouse literally hidden away behind Aria, a homeware and furniture store, is listed for sale. The property is located in the very heart of London – in the posh Islington district and was remodeled and renovated by Kennedy Twaddle Architects.
The seller’s asking price is £3.4 million ($3.95 million). The ad was posted in the end of August.
The distinctive feature of this home is the entrance through a lane behind the shop, so that the property only becomes visible after the visitor enters the private courtyard hidden from the eyes of strangers. The total floor area across three floors is 2,900 square feet.
There are currently four bedrooms, a living room, a study, an office, a kitchen, and a dining area in the house but new owners can adjust the layout to meet their needs. The residents will also be able to relax on two terraces and on the roof covered with green plants.
The exquisite finishing in refined shades with elements made of white steel and Douglas fir, the bespoke winding staircase, the lingering industrial style – all these features make the house a perfect option primarily for young couples who appreciate contemporary architecture and design and are willing to use everything Islington has to offer without moving far from the city’s Downtown.
Another category of potential buyers is wealthy entrepreneurs from other countries who would like to have a London property to live there from time to time and be able to lock it up and leave for a few months without being concerned for its safekeeping.
The house in Islington is a great example of unique properties in the capital of the UK that can make a marvelous residence or a lucrative investment asset.
