"I said no, they must have maisonettes... So the thing was radically broken up, this building, into four discrete connected towers, each semi-detached on a floor, each a maisonette." - Denys Lasdun
This wonderfully bright two-bedroom duplex apartment is located in Keeling House, one of the finest Modernist residential buildings in London, with fantastic south-facing views from its elevated position on the eighth and ninth floor.
Keeling House was built between 1954 and 1957 to a design by Denys Lasdun, one of Britain’s greatest Modern architects, and was given a Grade II* listing in 1993 in recognition of its architectural significance. The building was renovated to a very high standard by Munkenbeck + Marshall in 2001.
The building is approached via a set of secure gates, across the forecourt to a glazed atrium, manned by a porter. The building’s communal areas are maintained with great pride and as a result are impressively fresh and welcoming. There is lift access to a galleried walkway from which the apartment is entered.
The apartment’s interiors are well-proportioned and wonderfully light. The living area is open-plan and spans the full width of the apartment, with a kitchen at one end and reception area at the other. A run of windows along one wall lets in fantastic levels of natural light, with views towards the City. Upstairs, two bedrooms share the floor with a family bathroom and built-in wardrobes on the landing.
The building has a concierge and Hyperoptic broadband. Residents also have use of a secure bike store, conveniently positioned just outside the building’s lobby.
Claredale Street is very well situated 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.
