At Shepherdess Walk you have the character of a period property, coupled with the feeling of space, huge windows to bring in lots of light and an extremely environmentally friendly home with the advantage of low bills.
If you enjoy modern art and modern living, you want a home that reflects your contemporary taste, not another run of the mill Victorian terrace house; if you want design that adapts to your lifestyle, not the other way round; a space that you can live, work, eat and play in; a home that you can grow old in – then Shepherdess Walk is for you.
This boutique new build development of 3 houses and 5 apartments was designed by Swiss architects Jaccaud Zein and developed by Solidspace.
Solidspace are multi-award winning developers who have a philosophy of building for people to live in, not for investors to buy and rent out. They care about the quality as that’s what you care about too.
The development is in a great location, just across the road from Shepherdess Walk Park, less than a 10 minute walk from Old Street tube and all the bars and restaurants of Shoreditch, and a 3 minute walk to Regent’s canal.
Each and every house and apartment have been constructed with meticulous attention to detail and intelligent space planning which is a staple of Swiss design and part of the Solidspace philosophy.
All the homes have huge windows and high ceilings that allow natural light to flood into each and every room, and the split level design creates double height voids with overlooking gallery spaces. It’s a clever way to take the best of open plan, with the added benefit of zones of privacy, and due to the abundance of light and space, it means the homes feel incredibly spacious. The split level does away with the need of wasted hallways, maximising usable space.
As part of their commitment to their buy to live philosophy, Solidspace have commissioned the architects to design these homes with the highest level of craftsmanship in mind. The interior palette creates a welcoming atmosphere with the use of warm solid rough sawn cut oak flooring, natural polished beeswax plaster, solid walnut handrails and satin brass metalwork. This apartment also has a built in self-contained studio.
But don’t just take our word for how unique Shepherdess Walk is.
\”It’s clear that these homes are unlike any normal new build. They are beautifully crafted and a fantastic use of space\” said a recent visitor to Shepherdess Walk.
Home-owners have said \”the development looks truly special\” and \”simply brilliant.\”
Shepherdess Walk’s uniqueness has meant it has featured in a variety of publications including The Sunday Times, the Financial Times, the Architect’s Journal, RIBA Journal, Architecture Today, Icon and Wallpaper, among others.
