Spacious penthouse apartment located on the fourth/fifth floors of this sought-after warehouse conversion in Aldgate East.
Bernhard Baron House, built in the year 1919, is named after a successful tobacco manufacturer and in later life a philanthropist, whose trust funded the construction. This handsome red brick period building was originally purposed as a synagogue and accommodation for Jewish Settlers in the East End. In recent times it was converted into modern apartments and is currently a sought after building in the area thanks to its period features and history.
This duplex apartment benefits from two entrances, one on each floor. Accommodation comprises an impressive open plan living room with wooden floors and three double floor-to-ceiling glass doors giving direct access to a long 200 sq. ft. terrace offering magnificent views of the City's skyline. The modern open plan kitchen flows from the reception area and is fully equipped with plenty of storage. Those areas which deliver a fantastic entertaining area together with a corridor with built in storage occupy the entire upper level of the apartment. The well-proportioned two bedrooms and two bathrooms (including the master en-suite) are located on the lower level.
The property is ideally located close to the Aldgate regeneration area and within walking distance to the City and only a short walk from the Tower of London and Tower Bridge. The picturesque St Katharine's dock is only a short stroll away offering a delightful array of restaurants, cafes and pubs and benefits from easy access to the vibrant Brick Lane, Spitalfields Market and the Whitechapel Art Gallery.
