A stunning Live-Work loft in a well-known London warehouse conversion with a private courtyard just off Kingsland Road. The design and quality is outstanding and takes the best advantages of the original features and combines brilliantly with contemporary functionality.
Arranged over two levels, the ground floor is completely open-plan with a double height space at the front and side, a large dining area and through to an open-plan kitchen. At the front are double height casement windows dragging in masses of natural light and to the rear by the kitchen area are window skylights providing further light. Also on the ground floor is a bathroom and cloakroom, separated by a sliding wall (also accessed from the upper level) and a good size storage area.
On the mezzanine level, accessed by the feature concrete staircase, is a further reception area overlooking the lower reception and kitchen area and then leads to the bedroom. From the bedroom, there is another small staircase at the back, leading down to the bathroom.
Many original features retained including exposed brickwork and steel beams and the addition of underfloor heating, stunning woodwork and concrete worktops in the kitchen.
This luxurious penthouse is part of an imposing Gothic revival structure at London’s St. Pancras railway station. For years the 19th-century structure had languished in disrepair. It stood neglected until the mid-2000s, when the Manhattan Loft Corporation embarked on an ambitious renovation. But though the building’s exterior was restored to its former glory, the onset of the recession meant the interior got just a basic makeover. Until now.
Houseboat conversions are getting more frequent around here, but a completely new build is quite rare: Thesayboat houseboat is owned and designed by Marek Ridky of the Czech Republic.

Generously sized rooms and modern details throughout, this is not your typical nautical experience.
