Full description

An astounding lateral loft apartment designed by the current owners with great inventiveness and thought, located in the former home of Punch Magazine. Punch was established in 1841 by Ebenezer Landells and Henry Mayhew, a British Magazine full of Humour and Satire, renowned internationally for its wit and for its introduction of the term cartoon as we know it today. It published the works of some of the greatest comic writers and poets such as W.M Thackeray, Mayhew, P.G. Wodehouse, Sir John Betjeman, Alan Coren and Miles Kingston to name but a few. In 1947-1948 it readership peaked at 184,000 copies and in later years much of the archive was acquired by the British Library, including the famous Punch table. Many might wonder why the building inherited the name of Leonardo da Vinci born in 1452, one of the greatest renaissance painter, writer, sculptor, engineer and architect of all time! Clerkenwell was once known as London's "Little Italy" as from the 1850s to the late 1960s it was home to in excess of 15,000 Italians, and in homage to this community it was re named after one of Italys greatest creative minds and possible the most notable Italian in History. This incredible loft apartment which is located on the second floor, has been sensibly re designed making intelligent use of the space available, creating a most wonderful home. Wherever possible rooms have been re configured, walls moved, ample storage space created and floor to ceiling doors added allowing the space to flow logically. The living area is a vast space, cleverly divided into a formal reception area, ample dining space and bespoke fitted kitchen. There are three bedrooms all which are doubles with floor to ceiling built in wardrobes. The master bedroom has an en-suite shower room and there is a further family/guest bathroom as well as utility room. The apartment also benefits from a secure off street parking space, a rarity in Clerkenwell. Saffron Hill runs parallel to Hatton Garden and is moment from Farringdon Underground and Mainline Station which offers superb connections to the financial district in The City and London's West End.
