- About Us
Wonderful spacious ONE DOUBLE BEDROOM HOME in one of the most SPECTACULAR CONVERTED WAREHOUSE DEVELOPMENTS in EAST LONDON. SOLID WOOD FLOORS throughout and PERIOD FEATURES. Leasehold (964 years remaining) with share of freehold.
The building dates back to 1875 and was part of the SPRATTS DOG BISCUIT FACTORY until it was CONVERTED TO APARTMENTS IN THE 80S. This HISTORIC COMMUNITY consists of 5 buildings, and is home to a friendly crowd of professionals. This development started as ONE OF THE FIRST LIVE/WORK SPACES IN EAST LONDON and still appeals to creatives, interior designers, musicians, graphic designers, artists and photographers. It has great transport links, with a DLR station only 4 minutes walk away, so also appeals to those working at Canary Wharf or the City. With MANY FAMOUS RESIDENTS it has almost reached CULT STATUS… The apartment is 580SQ/FT OR 53.98M2 with a large living/reception room, ONE DOUBLE BEDROOM with ensuite, and a small kitchen. It's on the second floor and has a PRIVATE BALCONY (one of the original factory loading bays) overlooking the courtyard area. It has retained many of its original factory features, including structural steel work and exposed brickwork, and has high ceilings which add to the sense of space. Unlike many new-builds, it also has a lot of storage space, and an ALLOCATED PARKING SPACE and secure lock-up area measuring approximately 8feet x 5feet is included WITH THE PROPERTY. There is a brilliant 'tardis' of a corner shop just 30 seconds from the front door, and a Tesco Metro across the road. There's also a local market square a 5 minute walk away, and both Canary Wharf and Stratford retail centres are just a few stops on the DLR. The development is situated on the Limehouse Cut canal, so if you like cycling it's great, as you have immediate access to off-road cycling along the network of London's canals, and you can be at Canary Wharf in 10 minutes, or Narrow Street which runs alongside The Thames and has a great mix of historic pubs and upmarket restaurants. For a longer ride follow the paths to Regents Park, which takes about an hour. Heading east, the paths follow the course of the River Lea, and, for the super-fit, you can get out to Epping Forest for the day. A great place to live!
