Overview

Tower Hamlets Apartment Rental Photos and Description

1 double bedroom, 1 stylish walk in shower room,a contemporary kitchen, sleep 3

This contemporary apartment locates in an impressive historical brewery residential building between Whitechapel and the City.Site Location & Character

The apartment is situated to the south of Bellevue Place, which

forms part of the Stepney Green Conservation Area.

“Hidden away behind the Genesis Cinema and Wickham’s lopsided

department store is Bellevue Place. To get there, you walk up a side street

from the Mile End Rd where you discover a bright green door in an old wall

hung with ivy. Push this door and enter another world just as writer and

artist, Geoffrey Fletcher, did when he walked through the same doorway in

1964.”

In The London Nobody Knows he wrote,“A green gate opening in the

wall leads to a totally unexpectedly corner of London, one that may well

disappear if Charrington’s, who own the property, ever decide to expand.

Bellevue Place is well named. It is a cul-de-sac with a paved pathway

leading to the far end, under a creeper-covered wall. The cottages are early

nineteenth century, and have true cottage gardens fenced with wooden rails,

pointed at the top. Here are unbelievably rural gardens, full of lilac, lupins

and delphiniums – all a minute’s walk from the Mile End Road.”

Heritage Statement

Bellevue Place was originally built as a crescent of cottages around a green

which served in the Victorian period as tea gardens. Charringtons built a

brewery on the site, cutting the terrace in half, constructing a wall round it

and using the cottages for their key workers. Enclosed on all sides, there is

a door in one wall that led directly into the brewery, which remains locked

today, now the brewery is gone and now where my apartment stands.

“Bellevue Place, unseen from the street and surrounded on four sides by

high walls, is a magical place where it truly does feel as if time has stood

still. The walls form a wind break, creating an atmosphere of warm still air in

the gardens. There is an innate quiet in this corner.”

(In Geoffrey Fletcher’s footsteps, 2010, by The Gentle Author)

The garden setting is arguably a principle part of the heritage of Bellevue

Place. Accessible only by foot through a single door from the street,

the setting cultivates an strong relationship between the house and its

occupants, with the leafy front and back gardens surrounded by high, plantcovered walls creating continuous views of greenery from every angle.

This intimate acquaintance between the terrace and the gardens forms

a key part of the design concept. The proposal is sensitive the fabric and

layout of the existing Grade II listed property, leaving the principle house

largely untouched with minor alterations to the interior. There are no

proposed changes to the front of the property, with those to the rear being

in-keeping with the massing, scale and materiality of the original terrace.

This 1 bedroom holiday apartment provides a high quality modern accommodation with private entry and is located within a few minutes away from the public transports link (Underground Stations, Overground Station and Bus Stops). This stylish apartment has been completely renovated presented with a modern, fully fitted open plan kitchen cum reception room.

There are a lot of interesting places to visit nearby my holiday apartment such as Spitalfield and Broadway Markets, trendy/funky Brick Lane/ Shoredicth areas, famous Sunday Columbia Flower market, the new finiancial district of Dockland and Greenwich.

I have run this holiday apartment for over 4 and half years now and so far i have received 4* & 5* reviews from my guests. My aim as a host is to ensure all my guests have a comfortable and happy stay at my holiday apartment during their holiday.

Nice and quiet place

  • 4 of 5

Overall we were pleased to stay at the appartment, though it was a bit small, but it was not a problem at all. It was placed close to bus and Underground, and with only 3 stops we were at the Tower Bridge. There was not a lot of noise and it was quite and peaceful. Alvin was an polite and hospitable host.

Very clean and well equipped apartment

  • 5 of 5

My family enjoyed very much this clean and well equipped apartment. Everything there is just like it is described in the web site and we've got useful additional instructions how to reach the apartment several days prior to arrival.

We found it very convenient to prepare breakfast of our own with all the necessary amenities for self-catering in the kitchen and a supermarket just behind the corner. The availability of a tube map and of several guide books for London at hand is also an advantage. The apartment is well heated and warm enough even in the coldest London weather. The only shortage is its small size - it should be very comfortable for two guests but quite narrow for three. However, it was not such a problem for us as we visited London for sightseeing and spent short time inside.

Alvin is a great host - very kind and helpful. He lives in the same building and responds quickly to any request for assistance. He even agreed to receive a parcel for us that had been sent to his address before our arrival.

THANK YOU VERY MUCH, MR. WONG! WE WERE GLAD TO MEET YOU AND WOULD DEFINITELY STAY AT YOUR PLACE AGAIN :-)

Well located pied a terre

  • 5 of 5

Alvins apartment is coveniently located to the tube and bus. We are often happy to walk when in London and the apartment provides an excellent starting point (we walked from Cleveland Way to the National Gallery in an hour and a quarter). The area is vibrant and adjacent to good markets and restaurants. We were a couple visiting our sons, the apartment is perfect for two. I would echo other reviewers and say that three might be a little uncomfortable. Having said that our son stayed for one night and and that was fine. The property was spotlessly clean and well maintained. Alvin was very helpful and responded to queries quickly. The apartment is small but the location plus Alvin's input more than compensates. We would happily stay again and would be pleased to recommend it to friends

Appartamento carino in ottima posizione

  • 5 of 5

Pulizia, ordine e precisione: queste le tre caratteristiche principali riscontrabili nella gestione, da parte di Mr Alvin W., di un appartamentino deliziosamente collocato in una strada secondaria del vivido quartiere di Whitechapel, a due passi dal Tube e alle porte della zona 1 della rete metropolitana di Londra.

La dimora è ideale per una coppia. Il quartiere, a tradizione multiculturale, è tranquillo e ben servito. Ci siamo trovati benissimo e non abbiamo alcuna critica da segnalare, né alcun elemento negativo da riportare. Mr Alvin è una persona squisita e gentile, e ha risposto alle nostre esigenze in modo soddisfacente.

Welcoming Host and Cosy Apartment

  • 4 of 5

Our family of three stayed in Alvins' apartment for four nights. We found Alvin to be a welcoming and helpful host from the first contact email. He even allowed us to use his apartment when we arrived and the cleaning had not been completed, so very generous. The apartment is as it looks in the photos - clean, compact and stylish. The location is excellent, only minutes to Whitechapel tube and less to the nearest regular bus service on the main road. The apartment is light-filled, quiet and private. It is only a short trip to the centre of the city.

I would happily recommend this apartment to couples. For us however, it was just a bit too small for 3 as it is really only 2 rooms and a bathroom. And negotiating the bedroom with the bed so low and close to the walls was tricky. A personal preference and others may not find it an issue.

South East England is a lively corner of England and it contains London, which is the capital city of United Kingdom. London is a world class city, is massive and diverse and is extremely lively that has something for tourists whatever their interests is. London has a tremendous number of historical sites which include the Greenwich Maritime Village, the Houses of Parliament, St Paul's Cathedral, The Tower of London, and Westminster Abbey.

For a more modern attraction there is the London Eye.

For music and theatre lovers there is Covent Garden in London's West End which teems with life at night. The West End has innumerable restaurants serving cuisines from many countries. China Town, a must visit place near Leicester Square, is just around the corner.

If a quiet life is what you are really seeking then South East England has some very pretty countryside.
