Blending traditional Victorian and Japanese influences effortlessly, this truly unique one bedroom home tucked behind Chatsworth Road maximises space and light.

It was meticulously and inventively redesigned by architects Studio 304, and rightly won New London Architecture’s Don’t Move Improve Award in 2017. Offered with a share of the freehold and a private south facing garden, this urban oasis is the perfect example of how high quality design can bring Victorian architecture into the 21st Century. Victorian high ceilings, sash windows and original pine wood floorboards, meet Japanese inspired concrete, copper, glass, larch and bamboo to create a celebration of materials and light. The current owner has taken the meeting and blending of styles a step further and enhanced the space with a wonderful balance of maximalist décor and tones against a backdrop of minimalist design. The bay fronted living room features an ornamental cast iron fireplace and period correct shutters framing the large sash windows. The kitchen and dining area is filled with light from it’s bi-fold Schüco doors which open on to the private south facing garden. The bespoke copper kitchen with larch panels (preserved using the Japanese charring technique of Shou Sugi Ban), neatly conceal pull out space for appliances. The matte white cabinetry extends towards the hall ensuring ample cupboard space. The glazed bathing area deserves special mention – calling it simply a bath does not do it justice, it is more akin to a sunken hot tub or plunge pool. Known as a ‘furo’, which is a Japanese soaking tub meant for total immersion and relaxation. A truly peaceful and inviting space accessed from the corridor and with glass surround, it is set within the apartment’s private bamboo and Japanese gravel side garden. Privacy is upheld with Larch slats on top of the glass roof. Adjacent to the bathing area is also a concrete walk-in shower with brass finishes. The bedroom’s sash windows peacefully look out on to the bamboo side garden and bathing area – Studio 304 have considered the interaction between the interior and exterior spaces to great effect. The bedroom benefits from floor to ceiling built in wardrobes either side of the central fireplace, and space for a dressing table or chest of drawers. Off the kitchen there are stairs down to a basement with good ceiling height. It has been painted white with cork flooring. There is heating, lighting and plumbing for a washing machine. The current owner has fitted the space with rails for clothes storage, as well as a utility area, space for general storage and bike storage. The apartment has underfloor heating in the kitchen and dining area, and radiators with separate Nest controlled heating zones in the living room and bedroom. There are integrated speakers throughout the ground floor, and the kitchen is fitted with a projector screen. A private south facing garden, designed to be low maintenance with Siberian-larch slatted fencing and raised growing planters, built in seating and raised contrete area for entertaining. There is also a small but peaceful bamboo and gravel courtyard/side garden.

This is a neighbourhood that has it all. Great parks, good schools, oodles of cool places to eat and drink and a big helping of community spirit. Clapton has a mix of residents old and new, and is especially popular with young families and creatives. Bustling Chatsworth Road is moments from the apartment and offers some great independents, resturants and coffee shops, Easthaus favourties include: Vernerdi, Fika, Pivaz, Eat 17, The Hackney Draper, Espresso Hut and The Castle Cinema. Neighbourhood favourite P Franco wine bar and bottle shop is also on nearby Lower Clapton Road.
