For Sale

Overlooking the gently lapping waters of tranquil Wenlock Basin and Regent’s Canal, this beautiful one bedroom apartment crafted in an urban loft-style, with private balcony, is ideally situated on the first floor of sought-after Union Wharf, providing unobstructed corner aspect views of the picturesque scene below.


The apartment is south-facing, basking the balcony and living spaces in sunshine from midday to sunset and providing the perfect setting to watch the charming swans, ducks and stunning canal boats below.


To add to this unique setting, the lovely green space of Shepherdess Walk Park is opposite the entrance to the building, providing an ideal scene for children, dog lovers and park lovers.


Beautiful inside and out, the property centres around a spectacular living / dining space, one end of which is completely glazed, with double doors opening onto the pretty private balcony with impressive views over the two canals.  In addition there is a separate modern eat-in kitchen, together with ample storage throughout the apartment and a modern bathroom.


The spacious double bedroom also over-looks the Wenlock Basin and the Regent’s canal, as well as having access to the private balcony.  The apartment’s interior has a distinctly loft-like feel, with wooden flooring, exposed concrete columns, ceilings, walls and supports and floor-to-ceiling windows.  The windows have galvanised-steel frames and the balcony has an attractive mesh-steel and concrete balustrade.


The property is chain-free and has a share of the freehold, making it an ideal and smart purchase.


This architecturally impressive and striking building is entered from Wenlock Road, a quiet no-through road that runs towards the Regent’s Canal alongside Shepherdess Walk Park.  The striking communal lobby has a concierge and lift access to all floors.  The canal promenade that runs between the building and the water is for the exclusive use of the residents. Union Wharf is a secure, gated development and also comes with bike storage facilities and on-street parking permits are available to residents.


Union Wharf is excellently located next to the Regent’s Canal footpath, that leads towards Angel in one direction, and London Fields in the other.  The property is conveniently placed for access to the City and local to many eclectic shops, gyms, supermarkets, bars and restaurants of Islington, Shoreditch, Hoxton and Clerkenwell.  Significant investment is taking place in the area around City Basin and Old Street’s ‘Silicon Roundabout’, as it attracts tech companies and creative talent from around the world.


While many residents walk or cycle to work in the City and beyond, both Angel and Old Street (zone 1) stations are a short walk for access to London Underground (Northern Line), as well as access to the National Rail Network via the Overground.
