Head through a secure and portered gated entrance and a manicured courtyard, push on up the exquisitely finished communal areas with its glossy internal exposed brickwork. Inside, the stylish interior of the main reception space unfolds in front of you to reveal a large living area with double height ceiling and a beautiful arched window and door opening out to a sizable private terrace to the right which overlooks the private courtyard and arguably one of the best in the development. Beyond the living area The statement kitchen occupies a neat corner of the apartment with breakfast bar and floor space area adjacent to provide a more formal dining area. The apartment offers two double bedrooms. One located on the lower floor with the principal room with en-suite one level up via an internal stairwell which overlooks the living space. This apartment includes a secure off street parking space.
Stepney City was one of the first design lead redevelopments of an old Victorian school to the East of the city. Spearheaded by Rodger Black in early 2004, Black combined his architectural background but was also the developer. It was a hugely popular scheme with most selling well in advance of completion. The project was award winning and remains an iconic residential landmark to this day. The use of quality materials, kitchens and bathrooms means it’s retained a contemporary feel that’s yet to feel dated and it’s something that works well with some of the industrial style aesthetic.
Out and About.
The gentrification of Stepney over recent years has resulted in a surge of “go to” coffee bars and restaurants. Further afield and within easy reach Bethnal Green, Brick Lane and Spitalfields offer some of London’s most interesting and diverse destination social haunts. Hoxton, Shoreditch, Columbia Road and Broadway Market are all within easy reach, not to mention the city of London which is around 20 minutes on foot.
As well as being able to walk to the city Whitechapel tube is just around the corner and really well-connected offering both District, plus the Hammersmith & City lines as well as the over ground to take you further East and beyond. Or in the opposite direction you can grab the DLR at Shadwell for links to South East London, Canary Wharf of Stratford. The eagerly anticipated Crossrail network is very close with Whitechaple just around the corner, a few minutes on foot. From here you can access as far East as Shenfield and all the way to Reading in the West along with Heathrow.
