About the building
This extraordinary apartment is located in the old Chapel at the back of St. George’s Church, one of oldest Lutheran Churches in London built in the 18th Century. Later on, this building was incorporated to another building full of history; the old German and English schools, built in 1819. The buildings used to serve the numerous German immigrant community in Aldgate East, which came mainly to work in the local Sugar factories. This made the area being known at some point in the beginning of the 20th Century as ‘Little Germany’.
While St. George’s is still active as a Lutheran Church, The Chapel was converted for residential use twenty years ago, alongside the German School building which is now listed and retains many of its period features. The Chapel itself offers two modern apartments with high ceilings which also keep lots of character, they also benefit from the use of the quiet yard at the front of the chapel, with lots of plants which make it an oasis of tranquillity at the doorstep of the City.
About the apartment
The apartment, which has its own direct access from the ground level in the yard, has been laid out as a one bedroom with a spacious open plan reception room with double height ceilings and exposed roof beams, a very special space thanks to its double aspect and the many original windows, including one with tinted glass.
The apartment has been completely refurbished to a high specification with a fully equipped new kitchen and solid wood floors throughout. There is a good size double bedroom and a completely new bathroom, on top of those two rooms there is a mezzanine level which is accessible although it has not been fitted for a specific use, and provides a lot of extra space for storage.
The volume of this apartment make it very special and the use of the patio at the front add to its unique charm for discerning tenants who want a quiet location with all the services and leisure options at the doorstep.
