Quiet, spacious two-bedroom/two-bathroom flat on Regent’s Canal & Shoreditch Park. Open-plan living room & kitchen. Balcony. Fitted wardrobes. 24-hr porter. Good transport links.


This beautifully presented two-bedroom, two-bathroom apartment is located on the 3rd floor of Gainsborough Studios, an iconic and desirable development situated directly between Regent’s Canal and the open green space of Shoreditch Park.

This quiet, light and spacious apartment faces a central courtyard, which houses a large sculpture of Alfred Hitchcock - a salute to the building’s previous history as Hitchcock’s film studio. Overlooking this area, a well-sized balcony provides a lovely outdoor space.

The apartment comprises a master bedroom with large fitted wardrobes and en-suite bathroom, a second bedroom with fitted wardrobes, a three-piece bathroom and living area with open plan kitchen and ceiling to floor sliding glass doors that lead to the balcony.

The main living areas have solid cherry wood flooring and the property benefits from double glazed windows and a video security entry system. The block also has a lift.

The apartment is partly furnished with the essentials for a home (double bed, sofa and dining table), with plenty of space and flexibility for making it your own if you wish to add other items.

Gainsborough Studios has a 24-hour porter, providing additional security and convenient parcel delivery collection. There is an on-site gym available at an extra cost (direct to the gym).

The property is situated on New North Road, which is well served by bus routes (21, 76,141, 271 and N76) providing ease of access to the City and further afield. Shoreditch, Hoxton, Old Street tube station and Essex Road rail station are all within easy walking distance. Nearby Essex Road provides further bus routes (38, 56, 73, 271, 341, 476, N38 and N73), as does Old Street (21, 43, 55, 76, 135, 141, 205, 214, 243, 271, N35, N55 and N205). A lovely walk along the canal also brings you to Angel and Upper Street, Islington in one direction and, in the other direction, to Broadway market and Victoria Park.

The apartment is ideal for a professional single, couple or sharers and is available from 18 March 2016.

Rent: £2145pcm (£495 per week). This includes water charges but excludes other utilities (e.g. electricity) and council tax.

Deposit: 6 weeks deposit required (to be held by The Deposit Protection Service).

Testimonial from previous tenant: “This flat is lovely and it was a delight to call it home for the largest part of my 3-year expat period in London. Not only was there an immediate connection with the flat, but I could also count on Amanda's kindness and support throughout the tenancy. The spec including two bathrooms and location were perfect for me, within walking distance of idyllic Angel to the north and cool Shoreditch to the south, and for someone who works in the City of London there are options between a very short bike ride or even walking. Gainsborough Studios is an efficient purpose-build structure, and insulation makes energy costs very reasonable. Also worth noting that having the support of the porters from the West block was also quite convenient, especially for parcels or deliveries but also to find a parking space in the building and others. I can recommend this flat without hesitating, it would be a privilege to live here longer if I was to stay in London”.
