2 bedroom apartment for saleChance Street, London, E2
Sold STC £935,000
Internal accommodation measures approximately 850 sq ft. The space has been cleverly configured, with a sculptural timber pod in the middle of the plan that contains the main service elements: a kitchen with a serving hatch, a bathroom, a shower room and a storage cupboard. There is also a raised study area. To one side of the pod is a reception room, with wonderful glazed pivoting doors opening on to a communal terrace, and to the other are two double bedrooms with built-in wardrobes overlooking Redchurch Street. These bedrooms are linked by a pocket door, so that one could be used as a dressing room if required.
It is one of just eight apartments within the building, which has a discreet and secure entrance on Chance Street. Upon entering, the visitor proceeds through a dramatic elongated open-air courtyard planted with mature birch trees, which acts like an internal street. A lift or a staircase takes you to the first floor, where four flats are accessed from the communal terrace.
The intention is to foster a small community of like-minded owner-occupiers, and as a result no short-term lets are permitted. The apartments are finished to a high standard, with terrazzo floor tiles, lighting by Zumtobel, and built-in Siemens, Neff and Bosch appliances.
