Full description

This stylish two-bedroom apartment is found within a purpose-built block in the very heart of Bethnal Green. Refurbished and reimagined by the current designer-owners, it gives a real flavour of contemporary East End living.

Set back from the hustle and bustle of the main road, the flat is still perfectly placed for everything on your proverbial doorstep including the numerous transport links into the City and West End. Living here you are truly part of the eclectic community that makes Bethnal Green such a special place to live and work.

Brickworks Says - The owners have injected their artistic flair into the flat. Every inch feels carefully considered and loved, for example, the additional corridor into the bedroom designed with Feng Shui in mind. This, plus other thoughtful touches, elevate the space, resulting in a beautiful and calming refuge.

Aside from the location which is just brilliant, we love the idea of the blackboard paint on the hallway wall as a way to leave messages for the family - not to mention the fact that it takes the stress out of little ones drawing on the paintwork! And being higher up on the the second floor, there is a genuine sense of breathing space and light which feels good for the soul.

The Owners Say - We love our flat and redecorated it with much care to make it a bright, light and friendly space. The living room and the two bedrooms are south facing, which means we get a lot of sunshine in the rooms during the day.

The kitchen and bathroom are north facing, and we enjoy watching the first sun rays touching the treetops of Bethnal Green Gardens from our kitchen window over breakfast. We have an unrestricted view, which is a big plus, and was one of the main reasons why we bought the flat in the first place.

The block is diverse with lots of friendly neighbours flat sharers, pensioners, families and singles and all of them respect our privacy. We love our home and will be sad to leave, but we have great memories of our life here.

Points To Consider - While ex-local authority property might not be everyone's cup of tea, this one really does make sense. You get more square footage than a comparably-priced period property, and it is also likely to have more natural light and storage space than anything else you will find locally within a similar budget.

When it comes to transport links, you are spoilt for choice. The flat is equidistant from both Bethnal Green Overground station and Bethnal Green Tube (Central Line), with Whitechapel (District and Hammersmith & City) a 10-minute walk away. Buses from Whitechapel Road are also reliable and take you towards Aldgate and the City in one direction or Stratford and beyond in the other.

Due to be completed in 2018, Crossrail services from Whitechapel Station are going to make this transport hub even better. It promises to make travelling from here to Canary Wharf a doddle in about three minutes and Tottenham Court Road in seven minutes.
