Full descriptionThis fantastic and unusual triplex loft style apartment is situated in a wonderful secluded interior courtyard just minutes from Spitalfields Market.
Dating to the 19th century, the building previously housed the Ezras Chaim, Ain Yacov and Poltava Synagogue. Subsequently used for small businesses including clothing workshops and an Asian food store, it was redeveloped as a series of apartments in 1996.
Offering almost 1800sqft [circa 166sqm] of internal space and accessed via a paved courtyard garden area, the property is arranged over lower ground, ground and galleried first floor. Upon entering, a bright hallway draws you into the main body of the home, leading both to the bedrooms below and into a spacious and airy double height living room. With a ceiling of almost 6m in height, this space is bathed in natural light from the floor-to-ceiling galvanized steel framed Crittall windows that feature throughout the property. Solid Canadian maple flooring runs throughout the ground and first floor and an imposing 9m long steel beam accentuates the comfortable yet industrial design ethic. To the rear of space, shielded behind a semi-partition, is the kitchen, which features an industrial style steel sink, and offers space for the usual appliances, storage and generous work surfaces. The current layout could easily be rearranged to further optimize the space.
Above, the galleried and spacious first floor continues the design aesthetic of the living room and currently combines an informal sitting area with studio space, complete with a steel artist's sink. Two east-facing glass brick windows provide light to the rear while floor-to-ceiling windows open onto a generously proportioned west-facing balcony.
Both bedrooms, located on the lower ground floor, have full height windows offering access to the large patio garden, which has been designed to maximise both light and privacy and is one of only two such gardens in the development. Designed by the current owners, the stone paved area is furnished with potted plants and an iron grill raised plant stand, and is complete with a water tap and atmospheric lighting. The master bedroom is both spacious and light, with access to an en-suite shower room finished with ceramic mosaic tiling. A further, larger, bathroom is accessed from the hallway and is finished in the same style.
The second bedroom is well proportioned and is currently used as a dressing room / guest room. Distinct features include the 4m long, full height wardrobe with sliding doors, and as in the master bedroom, exposed steel and wood beams allude to the building's previous incarnations. Further storage is incorporated under the sweeping staircase in the hallway.
The property has a fluid aesthetic throughout and incorporates a variety of high quality elements including upright bespoke enamelled radiators by Arbonia of Switzerland and MK stainless steel electric fittings.
Heneage Street is one of East London’s few remaining cobbled streets, just off bustling Brick Lane and moments from the famous Spitalfields Market, meaning the abundance of restaurants, bars and boutiques of both are in the immediate vicinity. Liverpool Street, Aldgate East and Shoreditch stations are a short walk away, providing easy access to the City, the West End and Canary Wharf.
