Full description

Certain types of property are hard to find so this is a genuinely rare opportunity to acquire a freehold Victorian warehouse with so much charm and authentic character, which also holds a special place in TV history as the original filming location for Dragon's Den.

Dating from 1890 and originally built as a furniture depository, it was acquired by its current owner 20 years ago, from which time it has been used as a location for countless film and photographic shoots, an art director's dream backdrop of the perfect vintage industrial aesthetic.

As is the case with the rest of the property, the frontage is in remarkably untouched original condition with visible remnants of the Depository signage, timber sash windows to the first floor and crittal windows to the second floor. The original cobbled driveway runs through to the rear of the building forming a loading bay and internal courtyard between the two quirky period shop fronts. The ground floor store room has many features including arched crittal windows, cast iron pillars, exposed brickwork and cobbled floors. There is a spiral staircase to the rear of the first floor and period original exterior doors now link a later extension at the rear of the property which forms a useful garage or storage with steel shutter. The original working goods lift serves the first and second floors.

The first floor can also be accessed by industrial steel staircase from the front shop which effectively creates a separate entrance hallway with herringbone parquet flooring.
The first floor reveals the archetypal Victorian warehouse floor plate, over 2,000 sqft of open plan space featuring naturally polished concrete floors, high ceilings and exposed timber joists, cast iron pillars, cast iron radiators and numerous large crittal windows to three aspects providing excellent natural light. The brickwork walls include pleasing details such as decorative arches of bygone windows in the party wall of the neighbouring merchant?s house. To the rear extension of the building are two WCs and small kitchen opening onto a balcony with views across the tree lined railway tracks.

Ascending the wooden stairs taken by many a budding entrepreneur to the second floor is less nerve racking when you are not confronted by a row of stoney faced millionaires waiting to make or break your dreams, instead you will be greeted by the stunningly beautiful original features of the exposed pitched timber roof structures, richly patinated wooden floors and brickwork walls with their pleasingly distressed original paintwork. To the front of the building there are views across to the green space of Abney Park, and in this half of the roof a large original mezzanine provides additional accommodation and storage of around 850 sqft with the benefit of velux type roof lights.

The Depository will appeal to a wide range of occupiers in creative media and design industries, looking for an inspiring working environment. The property may also be suitable for conversion to residential or mixed use subject to obtaining the necessary consents.

Stoke Newington is a popular village neighbourhood just north of the vibrant and fashionable Dalston, but with a more relaxed vibe. A host of bars, eateries and boutique shops can be found on Church Street and the 54 acre Clissold Park are both just a 10 minute walk from the property. Stoke Newington Station is 3 minutes walk from the door, overground services on the Lea Valley line mean that Liverpool Street can be reached by direct services in just 15 - 18 minutes, via Hackney Downs, London Fields and Bethnal Green.

Available with vacant possession. Also available on a short leasehold basis for a term to be agreed, guide price £150,000 per annum.
