Located in a gated mews, off a quiet residential street in the Medway conservation area between Victoria and Mile End Park, is this characterful top floor apartment in a converted Victorian school.
The school dates to the 1890's and is an impressive building. The apartments were designed around existing features and they are on show in abundance in this top floor property. The apartment has sole entrance from the half landing of the building, on entering there is a further half landing with significant storage potential.
The beautiful staircase leads up to large original windows, where the views across London are spectacular. There is more than enough room for a desk or home workspace in this area, along with ample wall space for shelving leading up to the exposed beams of the roof.
The property comprises of two double bedrooms, the master benefits from the unobstructed view southwards and the second bedroom benefits from lots of natural light. There are storage spaces throughout this property and a large roof space extending over half the length of the apartment. The reception and kitchen are split level. The reception area benefits from double height ceilings and huge bay windows, stairs giving access out to a small shared balcony area.
The property requires some modernisation and the true potential of this property has yet to be realised, the fundamentals however are well and truly established. The property has an inordinate amount of natural light throughout, extends over 1100 sqft and comes with off street parking in the mews. Major works have recently been completed.
Schoolbell Mews is moments from both Victoria and Mile End parks, as well as the Hertford Union Canal. Victoria Park village is a ten-minute walk to the north whilst nearby Roman Road has recently undergone something of a renaissance and is now home to a number of cafes, restaurants and boutiques. Mile End station is a ten-minute walk and offers connections across London.
