Located in a peaceful corner of East London, this industrial style apartment occupies a significant portion of the ground floor of a former car workshop and extends to approximately 1,500 sq ft. The current owner has utilised the apartment's open-plan characteristics to full advantage, displaying carefully curated artworks and eclectic furniture. The sizeable living space benefits from plenty of natural light with large factory-style windows along the full length of one side. An original steel column frames an area currently used for dining. A feature glass brick wall opens into the bedroom, which also benefits from plenty of natural light and offers access to a quiet private terrace. The stylish bathroom follows a monochromatic scheme with white metro tiles and a vintage style roll-top bath. The kitchen features similar urban inspired tiling for a crisp, contemporary look and offers sufficient space for all of the necessary appliances for someone who enjoys spending time cooking or entertaining. Passing through the kitchen, however, the apartment has an unexpected feature; a quiet enclosed space which has been used as a writer's den and as a recording and editing suite. A further door from the studio / study leads into a large storage room, while a hatch in the ceiling opens into a loft space with sufficient head height to offer the potential for conversion (subject to the relevant consents). Finally, and fittingly for a former car workshop, the apartment has secure off-street parking. 

The apartment's peaceful ambience belies its convenient location, just a stone's throw from Whitechapel Road (A11) and with Stepney Green tube (Hammersmith & City and District lines) literally around the corner. Whitechapel station (for the Overground and soon also Crossrail) is also close by, while Bethnal Green (Central line) is approximately 10 minutes' walk away. 

The area offers a host of leisure attractions, from bars and restaurants to cinemas and boutique stores, as well as a cluth of appealing coffee shops nearby.  

This property benefits from no onward chain and is share of freehold. Offers in excess of £1,250,000.

"The apartment is like no other, a truly flexible space to configure as you wish. I love sitting in the garden on a summer's night and by the fire watching the flames flicker on a cold winter's afternoon. Some of my happiest memories when I leave will be all the great parties we had in this perfect entertaining space, and of course being woken up by the sound of birds in the morning never stops being a joy."
