Full description

Found moments from Commercial Road, and within touching distance of the City of London, this three bedroom flat is in the midst of it all.

The largest penthouse apartment in the development, it sits at the top of a grand municipal building that dates from C 1929. As a result, it is fabulously light throughout. Added to this, you have two expansive terraces, one on each level, that give panoramic views of the sprawling city around you.

Brickworks Says - In welcome contrast to many of the newer developments that are springing up around the City and Aldgate, the flat is genuinely spacious and open. And seeing as the footprint is close to 125 m2, that makes perfect sense. It's big!

Each of the three bedrooms on the fourth floor is a comfortable double, and you have the luxury of two bathrooms. You also have a large, private terrace to enjoy, which is reachable from the master and second bedroom. The current owners have added some smart storage space as well, so the stuff of life remains out of sight. And the automated 'black-out' blinds fitted to each room are a lovely touch.

Stepping up to the top floor, you are immediately aware how wonderfully light the room is. Wide, glazed doors on the south and east elevations let sunshine stream in and provide access to the vast, wraparound terrace. Being in the heart of E1 the views are great; a patchwork of architectural styles and periods that no other metropolis can match.

The Owners Say - We love the flat and really made it our home before we moved in, but then two children came along, our lives changed (!), and we outgrew the space. The renovation work we did over time was done with great care and attention to detail and with the aim of optimising all usable space. The double terraces have been a year-round treat.

The location is unique in that it is remarkably quiet, yet very near to multiple transport links, as well as an unparalleled collection of bars, restaurants and shops. And for those who work in the city, you can walk and be there in 10 minutes or less.

Points To Consider - The current EPC ratings:
Energy Efficiency Rating: B / Environmental Impact Rating: B

Part of the London Borough of Tower Hamlets, the property falls within Council Tax Band F (£1,801 for 2017/18).

900+ years are reaming on the lease. The service charge is £2,652 and split into 2x payments per annum. Ground rent is £300 paid in part annually.

There is a private and secure parking space allocated to the flat.

The concierge works on the first floor and is on hand during the day to help with deliveries, access and so on.

Bernhard Baron House has a rich history. Formerly a school, it was purchased in 1929 by Bernhard Baron to provide welfare, work and recreation for Jewish East End boys and girls. Basil & Rose Henriques (whom the road is named after) dedicated their lives to the settlement and other philanthropic work within the Jewish Community and the wider world. Later sold and then converted into flats, it retains many architectural links to the past.
