Full description

Spacious split level penthouse apartment located on the fourth/fifth floors of this sought-after school 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, later used as a school with capacity for 1,000 pupils. 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. Accommodation comprises an impressive open plan living room with wooden floors and floor-to-ceiling glass doors giving direct access to a good size terrace. The modern open plan kitchen is equipped with top of the range Miele appliances and flows from the reception area. Those areas deliver a fantastic entertaining area. In addition, on this floor there is a large bedroom and one bathroom. On the lower level we find a very large master bedroom with en-suite bathroom. 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. Local transport includes Aldgate East (District and Hammersmith & City Lines), Aldgate station (Circle and Metropolitan & City Lines), Shadwell station London Overground and DLR, Tower Gateway (DLR), Tower Hill (District and Circle Lines) and Fenchurch Street station (overground).
