Piano playing loft lovers will have found a match made in heaven when they invest in London’s unique new luxury loft development.
This stunning conversion of the Victorian Chappell piano factory in leafy Camden into 10 three-and four-bedroom loft-apartments with VIP Club Lounge is one of London’s newest and most unique developments. Beethoven, in particular, was a dedicated fan of Chappell pianos.
The result of a meticulous three-year restoration project. The loft’s dramatic interior architecture is inspired by its historical legacy and Manhattan industrial-chic: the result is artistic and voluminous design-led spaces.
This unique address benefits from a spectacular Club Lounge providing residents with a private VIP entertainment venue for relaxation and entertaining. Facilities include a club lounge, bespoke cocktail bar/DJ booth, party/club media/sound/lighting system; 183-inch cinema screen, swimming pool, spa pool and gymnasium.
Close to London’s West End heartland, Camden is surrounded by some of London’s most attractive parks and addresses including Regent’s Park, Primrose Hill, Belsize Park and Hampstead. The Regent’s Canal flows through Camden, and the town centre is focused on the canalside shops, restaurants and cafes of Camden Lock and market, and those of Camden High Street and Stables Market.
Built in 1866-67, the Chappell Piano Factory is a magnificent Victorian industrial building, originally five-storeys high and eleven sash windows across, forming an elegant brick façade with pilaster and cornice detailing. The entrance has a 2.8-metre high door with feature architrave and glass canopy.
Founded in 1811 by Samuel and Johann Chappell, Chappell & Co provided pianos and musical publications for nobility, gentry and musicians. Clients included Beethoven, Strauss and Sibelius.
Alongside piano manufacturing Chappell & Co championed music composition and performance. In 1813 Samuel Chappell helped to found the Royal Philharmonic Society and in 1850 Thomas Chappell financed the building of the St James Concert Hall in Piccadilly.
