Experience quintessential loft living at this two-bedroom, two-bathroom apartment in the heart of one of London’s most sought-after neighbourhoods.

With a south-easterly aspect, ceilings taller than 3 metres and stunning full-height Crittall windows, the interior is larger than most Islington family houses. The seller has owned the apartment for almost ten years and has spared no expense. And having only very recently been redecorated, the property is very much a turnkey proposition.

Located on the quiet side of the building and away from the road, the accommodation includes a vast centrepiece living room with an open-plan kitchen equipped with German appliances. From here, you step outside through double-glazed factory Crittall doors to the large and professionally landscaped private terrace, perfect for al fresco dining.

The primary bedroom suite is one of the most opulent we’ve seen, complete with an oversized Duravit tub, a sensory rain shower, and fitted storage that runs the length of the space leading to the sleeping area.

The second bedroom is also an excellent size, big enough to double as a home office. And there’s a cleverly designed utility cupboard tucked away behind a discreet corridor that leads to the second family bathroom.

York Central was built in the 1930s as the home of the British Poppy Foundation to manufacture and distribute their famous poppies.

The conversion into shell apartments gave 21 lucky buyers the chance to create their own idea of industrial living, and the building is now widely recognised as one of the most iconic loft addresses on the planet.

York Central is located in Kings Cross, historically famous as the central transport hub of London with its 170-year-old St Pancras train station. Today it hosts the Eurostar terminus, less than a ten-minute walk from the apartment.

Kings Cross is also home to the world’s largest tech companies, including Facebook, YouTube, and Google. The search engine giant is building Europe’s first ‘Landscraper’ here – a 1,000,000 sq ft headquarters for its employees that’s set to further cement the world-class status of the neighbourhood.

Shopping and eating are also the stuff of dreams here, with an array of fantastic options at nearby Granary Square and Coal Drops Yard, as well as a large Waitrose a mere 200 yards from York Central.

Clerkenwell, The City, Soho, Covent Garden, Marylebone, Mayfair, and Westminster are all walkable if you fancy a stroll, and all under 15 minutes on public transport if you’re in a rush.

Priced incredibly competitively compared to recent sales in the building, the apartment is sold chain-free with a share of freehold and an underground parking space.

Sinking fund currently £7,000 per annum on top of Service charges.
