Whether you’re really in the market or just teasing yourself, looking at houses is undeniably addictive. When it comes to house shopping London is not a good place to start, notorious for top prices and low chances. The Modern House is an estate agent who has found a way to elevate itself above the noise - of which there is a lot in London. Specialising in the cream of the crop of the London property market, each house more desirable than the last. So, to prove our point, we're beginning a weekly new series where we pick out the best property on the market in London right now. Starting with this hidden gem in Warley Close, E10.
A design warehouse with history
Price: £1,350,000 via Modern House
You wouldn’t imagine, when you enter the trading estate, that behind one set of corrugated shutter doors is the vast warehouse space. The open single space is adapted for the current owners: a photographer, filmmaker and a musician, who can split the open space in two using full-height bi-fold doors.
This beautifully remodelled and versatile B1 C warehouse conversion on Warley Close is arranged over three levels and measures over 2,200 sqft internally. The open-space is flooded with natural light which comes from glazed sections in the floor above that are punched into the concrete slab and supported by substantial exposed steel work.
Climb the steel staircase upstairs to find the upper living level, get ready to be wowed. The open space features a kitchen complete with reclaimed iron worktop, and a mezzanine bedroom above a gorgeously industrial bathroom. At the end of the upper living space is the verdant south-facing terrace.
Despite being discreet and nicely secluded, Warley Close is incredibly well located - sitting just to the north of Hackney Marshes and the green spaces of Leyton Jubilee Park.
