* Calls to this number will be recorded for quality, compliance and training purposes.
This bright three-bedroom maisonette is designed by award winning Karakusevic Carson Architects and is located on a pedestrianised residential road in Bethnal Green. Fronted with a private garden and entrance, the maisonette is spilt over two floors with balconies on either side of the building. The interior spaces have a wonderful sense of flow paired with pops of colour, a subtle contrast to the earthy tone of the bronze façade and neighbouring Victorian brick terrace houses. Teesdale street is a short walk from the cafes and restaurants on Broadway Market, London Fields and Columbia Road.
Karakusevic Carson Architect's design has won multiple awards, including riba National Award in 2011. These residential blocks are designed to revive unused public and green spaces as part of the renewal of the Mansford Estate. The height and scale of the building, coupled with the rhythmic punctuations of bronze standing seam cladding, reinstates the grain of Victorian streets and terraces in a contemporary style. The buildings frame a central courtyard, bringing together private gardens, inset balconies and communal green spaces to form a new active pedestrian link in Bethnal Green.
Entry to the maisonette is located past a private gated garden, bordering the landscaped walkway. A flight of stairs leads to the first floor and a lofty open-plan living space, painted 'Strong White' by Farrow & Ball. The room is dual-aspect, with large double glazed casement windows, drawing light deep into the space.
The kitchen sits at the rear of the plan. Grey cabinetry runs forms a horseshoe, providing ample storage space. Accented by tactile materials, the brick and green tile backsplash paired with stone hexagon floor tiles and a solid pine worktop establishes a space with an semi-industrial aesthetic; that works harmoniously with the concrete floor in the living space.
Beside the staircase, a beautifully crafted inset balcony offers a perch above the pedestrian walkway that runs between the buildings; the perfect spot to people watch. The stairwell draws in light from thoughtfully placed windows and fanlights, casting a soft glow between rooms. The main bedroom is located on the second floor, where floor to ceiling shutters reveal a full height window and a Juliette balcony. Deep blue floors, painted 'Railings' by Farrow & Ball, match the colour of the doors and stairwell establishing a unified aesthetic in the upstairs rooms. A second bedroom, currently used as a study sits at the back of the plan. A glazed door opens to a balcony with low timber wall connected to the sedum green roof. The third double bedroom is located below on the first floor.
There are bathrooms on both the first and second floor, finished with exquisite porcelain tiles complimented with birch-ply open shelves, stone floor tiles and brass fixings. These are bright and serene spaces with exacting attention to detail in the finishes.
The apartment has two private balconies, creating a strong connection between the living spaces and the complex skyline beyond. An inset balcony on the first floor is panelled with slated pine and engineered wood floorboards. This cocooned space is a tranquil vantage point from which to observe the tree canopies dotted along the pedestrian walkway. The second balcony runs the width of the apartment and has ample space for outdoor furniture. Here, views over the neighbouring roofscape and the iconic Grade II listed Keeling House by Denys Lasdun can be enjoyed unobstructed.
The apartment is very well situated for the best of Bethnal Green and the neighbouring locales including London Fields, Wilton Way, Columbia Road, Mare Street and Broadway Market. There are many fantastic restaurants locally, notably Lardo, Little Duck |The Picklery, Pidgin and Violet Cakes.
