This huge, three-bedroom apartment stashed away in an uber cool corner of East London will ease any would be owner in to chic industrial style minimalism.
Head up to the third floor of Monohaus, a hugely popular and thoroughly modern, mixed-use scheme developed in the style of a warehouse but with all the benefits a new home has to offer in terms of low energy usage.
It’s a big home to fill at nearly 1200 sq. ft. They’re a bountiful collection of big windows and doors paired with polished floors and cool clean decor which add to the overall ambiance picking up the natural light that filters through both sides of the space. The use of natural materials provides a warmth to the interior. It certainly won’t have a sterile feel associated with other modern spaces.
Three double bedrooms are to be found immediately to the left as you head along the hallway. Pass two of them as you push through into an oversized principal suite with en-suite and doors which lead out to what is possibly the largest private terraces of any home in the local area, at just over 1000 sq. ft it’s the ideal area to host social gatherings over long summer evenings.
The large lateral reception is generous space which extends to 25 ft at its longest point. It’s a sharp, modern environment making full use of that generous floor space. The kitchen at the far end with its private terrace adjoining, sits neatly with the areas that are zoned for living and entertaining.

Artisan bakers, restaurants and an abundance of coffee houses are on every corner.
