About the Property

Tenure: Leasehold with 105 years remaining on the lease

Offering breathtaking views over the City of London (front) and the Hackney Marshes (side) is this well presented and spacious two-bedroom apartment with an incredible sounding Northward Acoustics control room built in its reception area.

Set in a popular purpose-built development, the property comprises an inviting hallway entrance with a large storage room, master bedroom, further double bedroom, good sized kitchen, bathroom with WC, and a large reception leading to a south facing balcony. The building is a secure gated development that benefits from private parking, a 24-hour concierge service that also collects mail and parcels, a launderette, and a private well equipped gym.

Located within a 2 minute walk from the open green spaces of Hackney Marshes and the River Lea which is popular amongst cyclists and runners, the lively Chatsworth Road is also 5 minutes away. A bus link just a few steps from the building’s front gate allows for swift access to Hackney Central and beyond, whilst Homerton Overground that is 10 minutes away offers direct links to transport hubs including Stratford and Highbury & Islington.

The control room has a listening area that is exactly what you expect from a premium design. Extremely accurate and full sound with fast response and extraordinary soundstage, the coherence of this system provides an indisputable reference point that is appreciated instantly both inside and outside the studio.

The shell utilises two sliding walls for access to both the apartment and to the balcony, thus avoiding compromising its performance by the use of conventional studio doors. The surrounding area is very quiet and there are no noise issues. Very heavy concrete walls in addition to the thick studio shell ensure that someone can be sleeping in the room next door while a pair of big soffit mains are playing loudly in the studio.

The control room is linked to the adjacent room for cable runs connecting noisy computers and hardware stored outside the studio shell, and there are also two small compartments outside the shell for similar devices and/or extra storage. Alternatively, this link can be used to accommodate recording in the adjacent room. The power in the building gives excellent readings at all times and the studio is on its own circuit, separate to the rest of the apartment.

Please note that none of the studio equipment is included in the sale.

Offered chain free to cash buyers only.
