About the property

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


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.

As a host, my main aim is to ensure your stay at my apartment will be a comfortable and relaxing.

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.

Nearby Tourist Attractions: The Olympic village, Canary Wharf, Tower Bridge, the City, Bank ,Tate modern gallery and St Paul are only 5 to 10 minutes from public transport link so this holiday apartment is ideal for working professionals and tourists.

Good location, well equiped, clean

  • 4 of 5

Alvin was very good at answering quickly any of our questions and very accommodating in allowing us to arrive earlier in the apartment - very appreciated when coming from overseas and agreed to keep our luggage for a few hours in his apart after check out since we had an evening flight - so we could enjoy our last day in London a little bit longer. The apartment was well equipped and clean. It is rather compact however and is more suited for 2 people. It is located in a safe neighborhood close to buses, grocery stores, all services and less than 10 min walk to the underground. If you have big suitcases you are going to work your muscles though if you use the underground because it has no lift or escalator. We had a pleasant stay and recommend this apart.

Well positioned, practical flat

  • 4 of 5

We had a very enjoyable week in London,the flat was in an excellent position for transport and suitable for our needs. The only slight niggle was the lack of space round the bed and lack of a chest of drawers in the bedroom to put things down on. It was warm and clean with enough pans, crockery, tea towels, washing up liquid etc. Alvin was very attentive, letting us know when he was away and making contact when he returned.

comfortable, clean and efficient apartment. close to the Tube and bus stops.

  • 5 of 5

Alvin is a very responsive host. He responded quickly to our emails. He was there to greet us when we arrived and explained how to get around in London as well as where to buy groceries nearby. it is convenient to Underground and bus stops. very clean. Was just as described. We had a minor issue with the heat one evening, and Alvin rushed back to solve it, forgoing dinner with friends. We were visiting our daughter who is a student at Queen Mary Univ at Mile End and this apt was within a 15 minute walk to the campus. we had a very pleasant stay there. Thanks, Alvin!

Functional and well managed. Well equipped apartment. Felt safe and warm.

  • 3 of 5

The Owner Manager Alvin is super nice very helpful ultra responsive and the apartment is OK. Kitchen great and bed comfortable. Not much room in the bedroom and no WiFi signal in bedroom which is a little irritating. Impossible to walk around the bed. Living room looks good but not especially comfortable. Obviously the area itself is not the best but it much you can do about that and we know that whe we book. If I had to stay in that area again I would probably rebook. I had no problems at all and if I had I think Alvin would have fixed them. Did I enjoy staying there? to be honest not really but there was nothing wrong as such.

Nice Corner to stay

  • 5 of 5

Alvin was a great host. He responded back always super promptly, and helped us leave our luggage the first day, so we wouldn't have to check it into left luggage. When we (completely lucked out) getting Cursed Child tickets and came back extremely jet lagged and late and couldn't remember the flat number, he answered my call promptly and helped. (Much appreciated!) The best feature of the flat for us was the combo washer/dryer. We try to travel lightly, and this really helped us. Alvin also pointed us to the #25 bus, which was super convenient to the flat went to a lot of where we wanted to go (also pretty close to tube station). Supermarket on corner was also very helpful. We loved our trip!

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.
