The Galleries, Cleveland Way E1
This rarely available, first time in 17 years, true New York style East End ground floor Loft space in sought-after building features over 1,571 sq ft of internal floor area, secure gated parking, direct access from the Loft to a delightful garden area with more than enough space for al fresco dinning for eight people or more.
The Loft offers a great flexible live/work space, which is complemented by many unique interior design features added by its film director owner which include individually handmade copper Verdigris light switches and sockets and bronze style door handles, a very rare in the U.K. original
60's Preway fire imported from the U.S. and converted to run on smoke free eco-friendly Bioethanol, the high ceilinged 38'9 ft long MAIN ROOM also features original industrial steel columns; character distressed wood flooring; three large warehouse style windows; partly glass bricked wall detailing between the main room and the bedroom; a vintage wood panelled dining area with panelling from the old boardroom of the famed Ogilvy & Mather Ad Agency, believed to be by Linley. Heating is supplied by a bank of three industrial style radiators, and the room is lit by retro gallery style track lighting and a vintage style three-bulb pendent light.
Both the KITCHEN and BATHROOM are fully tiled in white metro tiles with real slate floors. The KITCHEN features a large window overlooking the garden stainless steel work surface and stainless steel industrial double sinks, built-in washing machine, space for a dishwasher, L.E.D recessed lighting, stainless steel extractor, retro chrome light switch and sockets, induction hob and brand new oven.
The high ceilinged double aspect BEDROOM is of a good size, light and airy with wood floor and large amount of wardrobe space, large vintage style industrial radiator and a door directly leading to both garden and parking in the gated mews.
The BATHROOM is of a large size and features a stunning original antique cast-iron bath with ball and claw feet. Above the bath is a vintage style raindrop showerhead, vintage style sink, low W.C, chrome fittings and heated towel rail.
Off the kitchen is the STUDY entered through a vintage 70's rippled glass door; the room has wood flooring, recessed L.E.D. lighting, retro style chrome light switch and chrome sockets with UBS charging ports. In the ceiling is a hatch with dropdown ladder, which leads to the large UPPER LOFT ROOM, measuring 39' x 11' at max with a round widow to the front and electric lighting; the room is presently used for storage but could be converted to a number of uses. There is also a second storage CUPBOARD of some 10 feet in length with power off the Study.
Heating is gas, and all windows are double-glazed and the outer walls are fully insulated.
The Galleries are set on a quiet street just off the most desired part of the start of the Mile End Road, a moments’ walk from one of the best independent cinemas in the UK, the Genesis Cinema, and the critically acclaimed Soho House’s Dirty Bugger restaurant. A new gym is within 1 min walk. Five minutes’ walk away is both Sainsbury’s and the new Elizabeth crossrail line which, when opened, will get you from Whitechapel to Canary Wharf in 3 minutes, Heathrow in 36 minutes and Bond Street in 10 minutes. For those seeking green spaces, Victoria Park and its super fun Sunday Farmers Market is a leisurely ten minute stroll in one direction, while those seeking the buzz of one of the hippest arts and fashion shopping districts in the world with its many cool bars and restaurants, Shoreditch and Spitalfields are just a ten minute stroll in the other direction.
The Loft itself is at the back of the building and adjacent to the gated mews, this setting means the Loft is very quiet; as the owner says, "If you want to be woken up by the sound of birds, this is the place to live".
