St Pancras Chambers houses some of London's most spectacular apartments in an area that has become one of the city's most desirable. Step inside this magnificent two bedroom apartment set within the gothic clocktower overlooking Kings Cross station, and enjoy a masterclass in characterful yet chic vintage styling that perfectly complements the historic setting.

Recently come to market, this luxurious rental property offers a truly unique opportunity to live in a London landmark. Designed by George Gilbert Scott and opened in 1873 as the Midland Grand Hotel, this Grade I listed building underwent a £200 million redevelopment to become the current St Pancras Renaissance Hotel and 67 luxury apartments.

The striking reception area features a richly-coloured ceiling mural and is flooded with natural light from the large dual aspect windows with reticulated tracery. Unique individual tiles, reclaimed cabinet doors and a pastel blue Smeg fridge create a stylish kitchen area along one side of the room, while interior design accents include gramophone horn lamps under the Bösendorfer grand piano, vintage ship's lamp tripod, wireframe stag's head and hanging birdcages.

The reception area includes space within the clocktower itself, offering panoramic views over Kings Cross station, its clock tower and the striking new roof of the western concourse. The local vicinity offers a wealth of bars and restaurants, as well as canal walks east to Islington and west through to Camden Town from Granary Square. The brand new Coal Drops Yard also serves up stylish dining and drinking venues alongside boutiques by brands such as Paul Smith, Tom Dixon and Cheaney.

The master bedroom (above and below) features floor-to-ceiling windows, plasterwork coving and a freestanding bath on the mezzanine. The large second bedroom (second photo below) also incorporates a mezzanine reading/study area and is beautifully decorated with oriental wall coverings, Moroccan floor tiling and a variety of vintage fittings.

In the bathroom, emerald scalloped tiling, brass fixtures, antique cabinetry and a walk-in shower continue the theme of contemporary and heritage features blended perfectly throughout the property.

This apartment is currently available for long term let. For full details see our main listing page or contact our Camden office.
