This rare to the market, south-facing, live/work townhouse is set within a private gated development in Bow, a modern addition tucked behind a striking period building which previously housed a public library. Spread over three floors, the property is used by the current owner entirely as private office space but could easily be configured as a lovely family home. Equally, the layout of this property lends itself perfectly to create a truly flexible space where there is a clear separation between living and working areas. The white-washed walls and wooden floors are a blank canvas, ready for the new purchaser to put their stamp on it with interiors. Or if preferred, it can stay as a fully functioning office or, since there are two entrances, split into a home and office with separate entrance for clients.
The ground floor benefits from a practical layout comprising a WC and open plan kitchen/living space with patio doors out onto the communal courtyard. The courtyard is a social space with bbqs and ample space for relaxing.
The first floor comprises 2 double rooms, modern bathroom, and a large mezzanine level to the second (top) floor with skylight and eaves storage. The first-floor room to the front benefits from double height ceilings and plenty of natural light due to the mezzanine level above. The property boasts 1287sqft so there is no shortage of space.
Further benefits include a designated parking space plus visitor parking.
Gillender Street is a conveniant location for quick and easy access to the A12 and the Blackwall Tunnel, whilst also being only 0.5 miles to Bromley-By-Bow station (District & Hammersmith and City lines).
The Galvanisers Union pub, The Works Cafe, Franze & Evans at the Bun Cafe Bow and the amenities in St Andrews Village development are walking distance.
Also within easy reach is Stratford, Fish Island/Hackney Wick and Canary Wharf.
The food, drink and shopping amenities of Westfield shopping centre are close by as well as the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park and River Lea.
