2 Bedroom flat for sale on Manhattan Building, Bow, E3


An incredible, two bedroom with private terrace, warehouse apartment in the ever-popular Bow Quarter development, a former Victorian match factory in East London.

From the mid-19th century to more than three-quarters of the way through the 20th century it was the location of the Bryant and May match factory consisting of various factory, administration and residences set within seven acres. It was acquired by Kentish Homes developers in 1988. ORMS Architects were appointed to transform the old factories and cottages to residential apartments and create a community within landscaped gardens, the first East London’s renewal project, Bow Quarter.

Manhattan Building, where this apartment is located, dates back to 1909-10 and was originally a factory building, overlooking the communal terrace over the swimming pool and gym facility. The apartment itself is set on the corner of the building offering double aspect and magnificent views of Canary Wharf and Olympic Village.

Accommodation comprises: open plan reception room with double height ceilings in places and large double aspect windows including French doors opening up to a private terrace offering far reaching views; kitchen/dining area; two bedrooms one with en-suite and a bonus mezzanine area which is currently used as a sleeping room, there is also another bathroom on the lower level.

The apartment comes with solid wood flooring throughout. A beautifully designed open plan kitchen sits to the side of the space where it does not take any space away from the 4.45 meter height living room which is flooded with light via the double aspect windows. The property is designed to take full advantage of the character that these spaces used to exude with mezzanines smartly designed to offer architecturally interesting features. The overall space is extremely flexible and can be designed to suit individual living needs.
