This bright two-bedroom apartment with a balcony is situated on the sixth floor of a Local Authority building designed by Berthold Lubetkin, one of the most important figures in Modernist architecture. Located near Victoria Park and Regent’s Canal, the apartment is in a fantastically central position, minutes away from Bethnal Green Underground station. The apartment was renovated in a playful minimalist style by its prior owner who is a RIBA-awarded architect.
Upon entering the apartment, there is a generous central hallway, providing access to the reception, two bedrooms, kitchen and bathroom. Solid wood flooring and recessed lighting through almost the entire flat creates a sense of space, and the windows and balcony all provide panoramic views to East London and Canary Wharf.
The reception is designed in clean lines with a built-in dinner table, media sideboard and storage bench. It has large north-east and south-east facing windows, and opens into the balcony with sufficient space to sit out and enjoy far-reaching views.
The kitchen continues the minimal theme, with bespoke white cabinetry, terrazzo worktop and a decorative splashback panel with backlighting.
The bathroom has black mosaic tiling, overhead shower and a large slanted mirror that maximises the sense of space and outside views.
The generous master bedroom incorporates a built-in bed frame linked to a wall panel with book shelves and built-in speakers, as well as a built-in wardrobe.
The location offers an excellent combination of city life and access to nature. The River Lea is only a short cycle ride away. Local facilities, including supermarkets, can be found on Roman Road and Bethnal Green Road. There are plenty of good restaurants and pubs within walking distance, including The Approach to the west and The Crown to the east.
