The Victorians were a pretty buttoned-up bunch, but boy did they know how to build an industrial structure. This converted ironworks in Shoreditch, London boasts original Gothic windows, gorgeous brickwork, double-width industrial staircase, and exposed steel beams.
Granted, this duplex penthouse has had a masterful renovation including the addition of a glass-vaulted ceiling and glass doors on the upper level, which fold back to open up the room to an outdoor seating area. Another flight of rooftop steps leads to a terrace with panoramic views.
In addition to the sleek full-sized kitchen on the upper level, the lower floor has a small kitchenette and three bedrooms—including a huge master suite with its own bedroom-sized dressing room and bath.
Based on the configuration of the lower level, it’d make a very nice office for a small company, and indeed, the property is described as a live/work unit. It’s got a great industrial look, but warehouse chic does not come cheap—the price tag is £4 million ($5.2 million).
