Incredible 'ballroom flat' with secret rooms on sale now

On the hunt for an apartment with a difference?

Look no further than this stunning Clerkenwell Road ‘ballroom’ flat.

The Grade II listed apartment houses the former boardroom of the building and the space is now simply known as ‘The Ballroom Apartment.’

The ‘ballroom’ is the most prominent room in the home with 20ft high ceilings, 10ft high sash windows, ornate decorative cornicing and ceilings, central fireplace, and original solid wood herring bone flooring.

In addition, the apartment is filled with secret rooms, spiral staircases, mosaic terrazzo flooring, exposed roof beams, as well as the original wooden cupola with a weathervane.

It also has a spacious kitchen/breakfast room and two double guest bedrooms and a guest cloakroom.

Meanwhile, the master suite with bedroom, dressing area and ensuite bathroom, overlooks the Ballroom on the gallery.

A spiral staircase then leads to an enormous loft room which has multiple uses and a ‘secret’ cinema room.

The property was designed by the riba architect practice H. Saxon Snell & Son.

It’s located in the heart of Clerkenwell and is minutes away from Farringdon Underground, Mainline Stations, The City and The Inns of Court.

The Red House, as it is known, is an impressive Queen Anne style mansion block which dates to 1885 and formed part of the administrative offices for the Holborn Union Board of Guardians.

In 1994 it was converted into apartments by Croft Homes in association with the architects Michael Sierens Associates and remains an iconic Clerkenwell landmark.

‘This truly spectacular property would make a dream home for a discerning buyer,’ says Daniel Copley, Consumer Spokesperson at Zoopla.

‘Not only does the expansive living area benefit from jaw-dropping features including 20ft high ceilings, sash windows and ornate cornicing – but there’s also a secret cinema room that’s the perfect place for relaxing with family and friends.’

Price is available on request from Hurford Salvi Carr.
