This lovely two-bedroom sits on the first floor of Sunbury House, on the quiet outer edge of the Grade ii-listed Boundary Estate. The apartment is well-located for the best of Shoreditch, just minutes from Columbia Road and Brick Lane. It is a short five minute walk to Shoreditch High Street station.
Formally opened in 1900, The Boundary Estate is now a designated conservation area. The estate is made up of smart tenement blocks that radiate from the central circus, on top of which is a bandstand, each bearing the name of a location along the River Thames. It was arguably the first social housing project in the world, and the bright apartments bear the hallmarks of conscientious design, with large sash windows, high ceilings and generous proportions. Each apartment in the estate has a different layout.
This characterful apartment has been lovingly decorated by the current owner, using natural hues and neutral colours to create wonderfully calm spaces. There are stripped floorboards throughout, and the kitchen has terracotta floor tiles. The rooms are roughly of equal size, creating a series of light-filled spaces with lovely Victorian proportions and sash windows. The two bedrooms are at one end of the hall, while the living room and kitchen have a lovely outlook over the street from the other end. The newly re-fitted bathroom has a power shower over the full size bath, and a separate small utility room for the washing machine. The flat is well-located at the end of the block, with a dual aspect that is rare in the estate.
Arnold Circus has become known as a gastronomic centre in Shoreditch, with an abundance of good pubs and places to eat. Rochelle Canteen was opened on Arnold Circus by Melanie Arnold & Margot Henderson in 2004. Leila’s shop, a grocer and Café, is ‘the city’s un-selfconscious authority on the buying, selling and serving of food’ according to The Gentlewoman Magazine. Nearby Redchurch Street is home to Allpress Coffee, Dishoom, The Smoking Goat, and Andina.
The eclectic East End markets of Columbia Road, Brick Lane, Spitalfields and Broadway Market are within strolling distance. Boxpark, Cheshire Street and Shoreditch High Street offer the discerning shopper a wealth of international and independent boutiques and art galleries.
The West End / Oxford Street are accessible from the excellent local connections (a 20-minute bus journey). Shoreditch High Street operates the London Overground, and Old Street is on the Bank branch of the Northern Line.
