Part of a converted warehouse — an old Lipton tea factory, to be precise — this home has an inescapably trendy feel that echoes the vibe of the surrounding Shoreditch neighbourhood. As well as benefitting from a huge amount of space and high ceilings, there’s also exposed brickwork and industrial-chic furnishings aplenty. However, it’s comfortable where it matters most, namely in the snug living room and bedroom. Located at the point when central London starts to blur into the East, you have a litany of lively restaurants, live music venues and late-night bars just a short walk away. Similarly, the city’s centre isn’t too far away — The British Museum takes just over fifteen minutes to reach on the bus, for example.
