In Dalston's most sought after gated warehouse conversion, this stunning three-storey home, set within peaceful private grounds, provides an oasis of calm in east London's most vibrant district. Part of a Victorian Printing works, this large two/three bedroom house has been re-fitted to an exceptionally high-standard, and includes a first-floor balcony and private patio overlooking mature gardens plus it's own parking space.
The main living area is positioned at the top of the house. The impressive double height ceilings enhance the volume of this open-plan space and the natural light streams in through the large warehouse windows and skylight. The windows themselves have recently been replaced with new double-glazed units. The industrial heritage of the building is celebrated through exposed original beams and complimented by a bespoke metal staircase and oak floor. A balcony overlooks the garden and there is also access to a mezzanine floor, currently used as an office/third bedroom. The kitchen, just beyond the main living area, includes fully-integrated Miele and Smeg appliances.
Downstairs, via a bespoke oak and glass staircase, is a large hallway and the main entrance with limestone floors, storage built in under the stairs and exposed cast iron pillar and beam that hint at the building’s bones, hidden underneath the 11ft high ceilings. The bedroom at the front has bi-fold doors that open on to a private south-facing terrace. The second bedroom has had an en suite wet-room added to it and benefits from a built-in wardrobe and there’s also a family bathroom with a whirlpool bath and underfloor heating.
Independent Place was created in the early 1990s via the sympathetic restoration of a Victorian printing warehouse – 'His Majesty's Printing Works, Eyre and Spottiswoode Bible Printers’. The development has three gated entrances and a resident porter. This property comes with a share of the freehold and its own dedicated parking space.
