Nothing gives the feeling of a house more than having your own front door right? No waiting around for lifts, just close the gate behind you, drop your bags, and put the kettle on. Bliss.
Named after California’s famed Napa Valley, this road is synonymous with the Green Olympic Ring, a suitable fit for the colour that represents growth, rebirth and life, with a friend of the owner admitting “coming back here at night, didn’t make me feel alone”.
So what truly makes a house a home? Is it your own front door? Is it high ceilings? Or is it a lofty sense of calm? Alexander Rose Estates manifests all three in this new offering in the former Athletes’ Village. Tucked down a quiet residential turning just off the centrally located Victory Park,- the heart of East Village, this homely one bed apartment encompasses a large C- shaped kitchen with marble worktop and plenty of storage options, including deep, full length cupboards, for all of life’s possessions.
Patio doors open inwards to invite in light and laughter around the 538sq ft floorplan,- with the porch not only offering privacy, but also doubling as a small zen garden (koi carp sold separately). Back inside, a large double bedroom leads off a short corridor, with a bathroom opposite, connected by an additional storage/ utility cupboard.
Underfloor heating helps awaken you in the morning, or ease you into the evening, with a well planted and regularly maintained podium garden on the floor above, replacing traditional neighbours and further adding to the sense of tranquillity on offer.
Within envious proximity to the shopping, restaurants and entertainment of Westfield Stratford, the serene tranquility of the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, the tech utopia at Here East and the sporting venues used during the 2012 Olympic Games, you’ll find yourself spoilt for choice, and with unrivalled connectivity to London and the World from Stratford Underground and Stratford International Rail Stations, you could be in Kings Cross in 6 minutes or London City Airport within 30.
East Village is also bordered by the Loughborough, University of East London and Birkbeck university campuses, with a new site for University College London being incorporated into the East Bank development, completing 2023, which will also be home to the world famous Saddler’s Wells East Theatre, London College of Fashion, V&A East and BBC music studios.
Find your peace in this piece of Olympic Legacy.
