Property Description

Full description

Tenure: Leasehold

Located on the top three floors of one of the finest Modernist apartment buildings in London, this two-bedroom triplex has almost 900 sq ft of internal space and impressive views from a large roof terrace. Keeling House was built between 1954 and 1957 to a design by Denys Lasdun, one of Britain’s greatest Modern architects, and was renovated to a very high standard by Munkenbeck + Marshall in 2001.

Entrance to the building is through secure gates and across a walkway bridge to the lobby. Positioned on the 14th, 15th and 16th floors, with lift access, accommodation includes an open-plan reception room and kitchen with high ceilings, a master bedroom with south-facing balcony, a second double bedroom and a bathroom. At the top is a single room with glazing on two sides, to maximise the views, and a large roof terrace.

Keeling House was given a Grade II* listing in 1993 in recognition of its architectural significance. Although originally built for council tenants, it was sold to a developer in 1999, and all of the flats are now in private ownership. The building has a concierge, and Hyperoptic broadband.

Claredale Street is very well positioned for both Columbia Road flower market and Broadway Market. Open space can be found at London Fields. Bethnal Green Underground station (Central Line) is approximately 500 metres away, providing easy access to Liverpool Street and the West End. Rail services are available from Cambridge Heath, and there are good bus links.

Denys Lasdun’s original design for Keeling House shunned the traditional slab block in favour of a winged plan (four blocks arrange around a central service tower), which encouraged the occupants to interact with each other. Munkenbeck + Marshall’s highly praised renovation earned an RIBA award and a Civic Trust commendation. The architects added a striking glass entrance area and an extra floor on top of the building.
