Warehouse Apartment - East London
Open plan warehouse apartment
This open plan warehouse apartment – and former car workshop – extends to around 1,500sq ft and occupies a significant portion of the ground floor in a building that stands in a quiet corner of East London and boasts a share of freehold. The apartment’s creative owner helped with the masterful makeover that provides a chic framework for the decadent interior.
Bedroom, kitchen, bathroom and some as-yet-unexploited areas fit neatly around the edge of a vast open-plan living space flanked by large windows along one side. The room easily meets its living and dining duties while leaving more than enough space to play in.
Through the glass brick wall at one end of the apartment is the main bedroom with its access to the private outside terrace, while at the other end you’ll find an oversized bathroom that’s beautifully finished and includes a roll-top bath.
Head through the kitchen and into a very quiet space that’s held a number guises, most recently for recording and editing, but is currently a serene writer’s den. From here, a huge store room extends to the front of the building and can house an enormous amount of personal effects.
To top it all, and as though you'd need any more space, a hatch in the study’s ceiling brings you to a loft-style space with decent head height that could be used creatively to provide an additional room (subject to relevant consents).
Finally, and fittingly from a former car workshop, the apartment comes with secure off street parking as well as the benefit of no onward chain.
Whitechapel Road (A11) may be a stone’s throw from the front of the building, but its accompanying noise isn't. In fact, it's wonderfully quiet. What it does mean, though, is that you're not far from public transport in any direction: Stepney Green tube (Hammersmith & City and District Lines) is literally around the corner, with the Overground at Whitechapel (and forthcoming Crossrail) not much further. Bethnal Green (Central Line) is approximately 10 minutes’ walk.
There's a riot of things to do with your down time, from bars and restaurants the award winning Genesis cinema and boutique stores, plus a clutch of exciting coffee shops all close by, with our particular favourite being the Fugitive Motel on Cambridge Heath Road for its all day drinking and dining.
