QUIRKY KENTISH TOWN APARTMENT LOCATED ON HISTORIC STREET REFLECTS AREA’S INDUSTRIAL HERITAGE
Available for £4.45 million, through Prime London estate agents Anderson Rose, is an exceptionally rare loft style four-bedroom duplex penthouse in Kentish Town. The unique apartment sits atop a contemporary building on Holmes Road, which is one of the most storied streets in the area. The road was first established in the late 18th Century to connect the city to the industrial businesses of Kentish Town. Today, Holmes Road is home to a mix of prominent buildings, including the Penthouse at 55-57.
The grand apartment that sits atop 55-57 Holmes Road benefits from exceptionally high ceiling volumes and historic warehouse style features that create an industrial look and feel. Measuring over 3,300 sq. ft. the home features large living spaces, with herringbone wood floors, granite kitchen worktops and white marble bathrooms, whilst there is a feature staircase with bespoke arty railings. Full width sliding doors fill the home with natural light that lead onto two full wraparound terraces, with verandas, that offers breath-taking views across the London skyline.
Spaced across the top two floors of the building, the duplex penthouse comprises a living room, a remarkable open plan kitchen with state-of-the-art appliances and a dining room on the first floor, with each room opening onto a substantial wraparound terrace.
All four bedrooms are situated on the floor below, including the spectacular superb principal bedroom suite, complete with a walk-in dressing room/wardrobe. Three further well sized bedrooms and a study complete the floor, with all all rooms leading onto an impressive second wraparound balcony.
The street takes its name from the Holmes family who were successful business and land owners in Kentish Town in the 1700s, with a brewery, tanners, rope manufacturing plant and a brickworks operating under their ownership. Holmes Road was set out to avoid navigating around marshland and sludge fields and create a more direct link for commercial traffic to and from the various warehouses, factories and yards into the centre of Kentish Town and onto central London.
Due to its industrial links the road was caught up in multiple bombing raids during the Second World War, which had led to the architectural character now having an eclectic variety, as the area was rebuilt.
For residents of 55-57 Holmes Road, Kentish Town Underground (Northern Line) & London Overground station is a short walk away, which provides short travel times into central London. The popular Collège Français Bilingue de Londres is located a stone’s throw from the penthouse, offering the perfect opportunity for a family looking to live close to the highly regarded international school.
The Penthouse at 55-57 Holmes Road is available to purchase for £4.45 million, with viewings strictly by appointment only.
