This wonderfully bright apartment can be found perched on the top floor at one end of this sought-after gated mews close to London Fields. The property comprises part of a former grandfather-clock factory, originally built in 1890 and converted into flats at the beginning of the century.
Entry is on the second floor from the secure, shared walkway. Internal accommodation extends to approximately 840 sq ft and opens to an expansive open-plan living room, dining area and kitchen, with oak flooring and exposed brick walls.
Segregated behind a bespoke plywood storage unit is a seating area and recessed built-in daybed. Limited edition wallpaper by artist Charles Avery adorns the entire right-side wall. On the left are the kitchen and dining areas, linked by an integrated plywood and Formica worktop and bench. A wide corridor, with built-in wardrobes, provides a versatile study space, and leads to the bedroom with Juliet balcony, and the bathroom on the left.
The flat is located off the bustle of Mare Street in central Hackney, just to the east of the popular London Fields, and close to the green spaces of Victoria Park and the Regent’s Canal path. There are many fantastic restaurants locally, notably Lardo and Raw Duck on Richmond Road, and Pidgin and Violet on Wilton Way. Weekly markets take place at Victoria Park and Well Street, and Broadway Market has a reputation for some excellent places to eat and drink, and hosts a food market on Saturdays. The E5 Bakehouse, on the edge of London Fields, is excellent for freshly baked artisan bread and grains.
Hackney Central runs direct services to Stratford and Highbury & Islington on the London Overground, whilst London Fields also offers direct trains to Liverpool Street. Bethnal Green Underground station, easily accessible by bus, has excellent links to central London via the Central Line.
