Full description

This astonishing, lateral, loft apartment is located on the fourth floor of one of the most esteemed buildings in Clerkenwell. The Paramount was built in 1936-38 by John Laing and Sons Ltd a family run building company which dates back to the mid 1800's and designed by Culpin & Son. The original facade was constructed in red brick and originally named Wigton House celebrating the firm's Cumbrian roots. The building was actively occupied by various manufacturing companies as well as Scholl the renowned Podiatrist foot company. In the 1990's the building was acquired and converted into apartments by Warner Loft ltd, who enhanced the appearance of the building with white painted render, glass balconies and roof terraces renaming it The Paramount Building. It has become one of the most recognised and sought after apartment buildings in Clerkenwell with all of the apartments having floor to ceiling windows, exposed concrete ceilings with upper floor apartments enjoying some of the best views of the London Skyline. The apartment boasts a generous entrance hall which leads into the most delightful living space, where automatically the eye is drawn towards the most breath-taking view of the Westerly London skyline. The reception room has tall sliding glass doors leading onto a balcony with the room having exposed concrete ceilings and wood flooring. The built-in recessed kitchen is semi open plan. The double bedroom enjoys the same views and light and features built-in wardrobes and double sliding doors leading to further balcony. There is an additional sleeping deck for guests and a huge marble bathroom with separate bathtub and shower. The Paramount is located on St John Street, which is one of London's most sought after and fashionable locations with easy access to both The City and West End. It is moments from Farringdon Underground Station which in 2019 will benefit from the opening of Cross Rail as well as a profusion of superb local restaurants and wine bars. This really is one of the most astounding loft apartment that Clerkenwell has to offer.
