Property description

This one bedroom spacious and bright apartment is situated in a gated development where well-kept private communal gardens with plenty of seating offers a relaxing haven from the buzz of the city outside. Shopping for all your self-catering needs just couldn't be easier, as one of the best supermarkets in the East End is literally opposite, plus the daily Whitechapel street market has all kinds of exotic vegetables and fruit for sale. The apartment has an open-plan living-dining area with two sofas, with one being a sofa-bed, a solid oak table with four matching chairs and a dresser. There is a TV for home entertainment. Free WiFi. The kitchen is fully equipped with oven, microwave, fridge freezer and coffeemaker. The bedroom has a double bed and fitted wardrobe, a bathroom with sink, toilet, bath and shower completes the accommodation. This apartment is on the third floor, which is the top floor and there is no elevator.


Access to the whole of London is simple from this apartment with three Underground lines from Whitechapel and plenty of bus routes. An average journey by Tube to Westminster for the Abbey and the Houses of Parliament will be 16 minutes and if you are here for the Olympics, 10 minutes will take you to Stratford and the Olympic Park. If you fancy cycling there are several Barclay's bike docking stations in nearby or why not walk to the Thames joining the Thames path and stroll all the way to the London Eye, this is a fantastic way to take in our historic monuments such as The Tower, foodie-favourite Borough Market, St Paul's, Shakespeare's Globe Theatre, the Tate Modern and en route you can pause for refreshment at one of our well-known pubs. Try 'The Anchor' which dates back to 1676.
Art and culture are bountiful in our local area with the Whitechapel Gallery founded in 1901 recently revamped leading the pack. It has a highly recommended restaurant, too. London's East End is home to the city's most exciting artistic communities. With over 100 galleries and museums so you will be spoilt for choice, even before you discover the city centre's world-famous National Gallery, Royal Academy and British Museum.
Restaurants within a short walking distance mean you can dine out gourmet or simple. Don't miss out on visiting the trendy Brick Lane area, infused by the local Asian community with some great curry houses. Nearby vintage shops are hugely popular for browsing and many up-and-coming designer labels are to be found in the fashionable shops on Redchurch Street, Brick Lane and in the vicinity of London's must-see Spitalfields Market. There is a daily market in Petticoat Lane but Sundays come alive with the Columbia Road street market, specializing in flowers and with an atmosphere that's magic.
If you love shopping, the recently opened Westfield Stratford City only three tube stops away will be for you. This huge mall boasts two hundred and thirty eight stores including Apple, Prada, Marks & Spencer's and John Lewis which has it's own fantastic view point over the new Olympic Park. There is a seventeen screen cinema complex within the mall .
and a Casino too.
The location is ideal for either a vacation or a business trip.

Ideally positioned for those of you who love the excitement and energy of London's famous East End. Situated just off the vibrant Whitechapel Road and within a few minutes' walking distance of Whitechapel Underground station, you have rapid access by tube or bus to the centre of the city in one direction and the Olympic park in the other. If you enjoy walking, one of London's most iconic sights, the World Heritage Site of the Tower of London is 20 minutes away and it's just 15 minutes' stroll to fashionable Brick Lane and Spitalfields, which, with its wealth of boutiques, restaurants, bars, clubs and cafes, has become one of London's coolest quarters to see and be seen in.

About the owner: I have lived in London almost all my adult life although now I divide my time between Here and Provence , France. I have worked in the travel business for the last thirty years taking tourists all around the world, however now I also run my own coaching and networking business.

Why the Owner Chose Tower Hamlets (London, UK):
A great friend David introduced me to the Whitechapel area way back in the eighties and I was thrilled when I had the opportunity to purchase, my then brand new appartment in what I consider to be one of the most stimul;ating parts of London . It is real, it is arty, evolving and energetic. Whats more you have fantastic access to everywhere in London.

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
A gated, gardened apartment in such a convenient location is a real privilege.
