A time to move on

The one problem with building a dream flat from scratch (well, a shell) is that once you’re done, you’re done. There just isn’t anything that needs doing for a very long time. If you’re someone who enjoys the doing (to a point) then, although it’s nice to sit back and relax and appreciate what you’ve created for a while; the time eventually comes when you start getting itchy feet and want to be able to start crafting the next masterpiece…

So, after some soul searching, we’ve decided that it’s time to look for another space to work with. We love what we achieved at The Canal Building but it’s time to start again. We’ve already seen a couple of lovely large spaces that have lots and lots of potential and the creative juices are flowing…

So, we’re looking to sell. If you’re looking for a contemporary apartment with approx 1324 sq ft of space that’s been done in a two bed/two bath, large living area and open-plan kitchen style. If you want somewhere with lots of storage. If you want outside space (we have a shared terrace that’s 3m x 4m (big enough for a BBQ) and only shared between 4 other apartments. If you want cat5 everywhere, a central ‘machine cupboard’ for firewalls, servers, switches and broadband connections. If you want a very high quality finish. If you want to be able to walk to work in the City of London in 25 mins or wander the bars and restaurants of Upper Street and Essex Road after a 10 min walk and be able to leave your car parked in a secure underground parking space. If you want 24 hr security/porter. If you want air conditioning. If you want a building where a group of the residents take an active interest in keeping service charges under control and take a very close interest in the behavior of their managing agent. If you want a high quality fish monger, butcher and green grocer within 5 minutes walk and a wonderful Italian deli just 3 minutes away. If you want the Regents Canal just a stone’s throw from your bedroom window… Then I suggest that you get in touch, and soon… It’s early days, but there’s only one flat quite like this in the whole building, so buy early ;)

So, in summary; 1324sq ft flat for sale in Canal Building N1. Floor plan is here. Photo diary of the conversion from shell to apartment is here. Details of the 25 Beautiful Homes photo shoot (March 2003 edition) is here. Includes all appliances, lights, blinds, etc. If you like the furniture then that might be available too, make us an offer.


By the way, I reserve the right to get all ’estate agenty’ in the near future and start using phrases like ‘benefits from’, etc.

Asking price: £599,000.
