The Eagle has landed! If you didn’t know already, Vesta is the name of the brightest asteroid visible from Earth. It also shares its name with this almost otherworldly building, located in the heart of the Olympic Village, and with stellar views from every room as well as the balcony, you may just be closer to it than you think.
Beaming us up, Scotty, to the 11th floor, Alexander Rose Estates makes first contact with this 743 sq ft property, and after one small step inside, the rest of the world below appears rather small. A lengthy corridor links two double bedrooms and a shared bathroom on one end, to a well thought out reception/ dining area, which cleverly incorporates the fully integrated U- shaped kitchen on the other. Space- age features such as zoned underfloor heating, video intercom and smart storage options await.
A giant leap for mankind sees Vesta House elevate the traditional 1st floor courtyards commonly found in East Village, in favour of an observatory level, private decked roof terrace on the 13th floor, boasting panoramic views of galaxies far, far away from the centre of the E20 postcode. Light filters through the roof terrace skylight and illuminates the atrium, giving it the feel of a planetarium when looking up from the ground floor, which again, nods towards the origins of the buildings’ name.
Surrounded by amenities including bars, restaurants, cafes, a gym and Sainsburys local, Vesta House also benefits from being within envious proximity to the shopping, restaurants and entertainment of Westfield Stratford, the serene tranquility of the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, and the sporting venues used during the 2012 Olympic Games – the London Stadium, Olympic Velodrome, Aquatic Centre, Copper Box Arena, Lee Valley Hockey and Tennis Centre.
Within a moonwalk, unrivalled connectivity to London and the World awaits, from Stratford Underground and Stratford International Rail Stations, with London City Airport also within 30 mins. 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 Sadler’s Wells East Theatre, London College of Fashion, V&A East, Smithsonian Museum and BBC music studios to name a few.
Houston, do we have a problem?
