Property description

Grand ballroom apartment.

This truly exceptional Grade II listed apartment is unlike any other found in Clerkenwell. Housing the former boardroom of the building, the space is now simply known as “The Ballroom Apartment”.

Perhaps the most striking and prominent room in any Clerkenwell home, the main reception space is almost regal, with 20ft high ceilings, 10ft high sash windows, ornate decorative cornicing and ceilings, central fireplace, and original solid wood herring bone flooring.

The apartment is full of pleasant surprises with secret rooms, spiral staircases, mosaic terrazzo flooring, exposed roof beams, as well as the original wooden cupola with a weathervane.

Designed by the riba architect practice H. Saxon Snell & Son, The Red House is an impressive Queen Anne style mansion block which dates to 1885, originally forming part of the administrative offices for the Holborn Union Board of Guardians.

It was converted into apartments in 1994 by Croft Homes in association with the architects Michael Sierens Associates and remains an iconic Clerkenwell landmark.

Offering magnificent accommodation, which is extremely versatile the apartment comprises, the dramatic and imposing Ballroom – reception space with nine sash windows, kitchen/breakfast room, two double guest bedrooms, one with a shower and a further guest cloakroom.

Overlooking the Ballroom on the gallery, there is an opulent master suite with bedroom, dressing area and ensuite bathroom.

A further spiral staircase leads to an enormous loft room with multiple uses and a “secret” cinema/media room.

This apartment epitomises the love affair our buyers have with Clerkenwell - open spaces, industrial and period features, high ceilings, and huge windows.

Clerkenwell’s industrial past has meant that the area has some of the most exquisite and quirky spaces one can find, with many factories, office buildings, printers, haberdashers, distilleries, breweries, gemmologists, and smokehouses, now transformed into homes which amalgamate industrial and commercial spaces with the finest design finishes.

This eclectic mix of creative space and an almost romantic vision of living, allows an incoming homeowner the freedom to create and adapt a living environment that is both personal and social, eliminating the defined spaces most commonly found in a traditional house.

Expect the unexpected, this loft apartment does not conform to traditional living, it is about open space and wonderful drama.

Its position is exceptional, right in the heart of Clerkenwell, moments from Farringdon Underground and Mainline Stations as well as within walking distance to The City and The Inns of Court.
