“Soaring ceilings and generously proportioned windows invite an exceptional quality of light into the space”

This light-filled one-bedroom maisonette occupies the ground and first floor of a grand Edwardian building in upper Clapton. Soaring ceilings and clean architectural lines characterise the internal spaces, where the current owners have introduced inviting pops of colour to enhance the pared-back aesthetic, which prevails throughout. At the rear of the apartment lies a communal decked terraced, perfectly positioned for alfresco dining. Excellently located between Upper Clapton and Stoke Newington, the green spaces of Millfields Park and Hackney Downs are only a few minutes walk away.

The Tour 

The apartment is accessed on the ground floor from a separate side entrance, which leads onto a spacious communal hallway. The front door opens directly onto a largely open-plan living, dining and kitchen area, where a large pantry sits adjacent, with plenty of open shelving for easily accessible storage.

The living spaces occupy the entirety of the ground floor. Generously proportioned windows on the rear elevation invite an excellent quality of natural light in the room, while white-washed walls cast further light around the space. Wide-plank oak floorboards add gentle tactility and warmth to the overall palette, while accent walls are painted a bold terracotta and sunny yellow to enhance the room’s architectural features. An understated, fully integrated kitchen spans the length of the wall, where a splashback of smart black tiling creates a striking contrast with extensive white cabinetry.

A staircase ascends to the first floor, home to a spacious bedroom and a bright en suite bathroom. Cleverly positioned shelving within the stairwell maximises the sense of volume. A mezzanine level sits at the rear of the bedroom, reached by a ladder, and can easily be configured as a snug or for further concealed storage.

Outdoor Space

A communal decked terrace sits directly outside the living area, accessed via a separate gate. Built-in benches offer plenty of space to sit and enjoy the sun while concealing plenty of storage. Enclosed by mature bushes and shrubbery, this is a quiet, peaceful spot to entertain or eat alfresco.
