A two double bedroom, maisonette in the iconic Grade II* listed Keeling House, designed by the famous architect Sir Denys Lasdun with a balcony and porter.
Designed in 1955 and built between 1957-59, Keeling House was the work of eminent modernist architect Sir Denys Lasdun. A Brutalist cluster block of 16 storeys, it was the first tower block to be listed in the UK, and was awarded Grade II* status in 1993 by National Heritage secretary Peter Brooke who declared it 'an architecturally outstanding example of 1950s public housing'. It received a RIBA award-winning renovation by architects, Munkenbeck and Marshall in 2001.
Once inside the building and past the concierge desk, the flat itself is accessed via a lift to the 3rd floor. From the entrance hall, with its built-in storage area, you access the large open-plan kitchen/diner. There are broad windows across the south-easterly facing side of the room, as well as the door giving you access to the neat balcony with roof-top views and plenty of space for a small table and a couple of chairs. This is a light, bright room with maximum light in the morning and throughout most of the day.
This vivid brightness is continued as you go up the stairs to the first floor. With two windows, and white wooden stairs and walls, the light gives life to this traditionally dark and gloomy part of any house. Upstairs, there are two double bedrooms with original wood flooring, and the bathroom – with full size bath. One of the best features of this building is that the flats were designed so that when you are inside, you are not aware of any neighbours, making it feel like your own little house.
Located on Claredale street, in the heart of Bethnal Green, the flat is very well connected via the tube (Bethnal Green) and the overground (Cambridge Heath). Nearby is bustling London Fields and Broadway Market, home to a thriving community of delis, pubs, eateries and independent shops, as well as a renowned Saturday Farmer's Market. While Columbia Road, Hackney City Farm are close by, and Liverpool Street just beyond, a short bus ride away.
