An 'architecturally redesigned' former car workshop in Tower Hamlets is currently for sale - with a listing price of nearly £1.5 ($2.06) million.

Labeled as 'one of the most impressive properties on the market,' the Bow Common Lane home exhibits elements of its distinct heritage whilst epitomizing contemporary architecture and stylish home decor features. These modern assets are showcased within moments of entering the garage - through its double-height ceilings and fearless use of glass which drenches the space in light and creates a light and spacious aura. 

The open-plan room also includes a bespoke kitchen area - complete with a range of smart appliances, floor lights, and Dekton surfaces.

The property has three bedrooms, two of which are on the first floor, and three bathrooms, including two en-suites and a large luxe polished plaster suite concealed in the basement. 

The garage's industrial history is further celebrated through its open steelwork feature staircase, which leads to the oak-kissed second floor. Here, there is a spacious lounge, master bedroom, and access to the private rooftop terrace where you can raise a glass over the vibrant neighborhood in East London.

With its minimal interiors and expertly designed light features, it is hard to imagine this space ever played setting to a mechanics garage; however, the building's diverse history is what makes it so uniquely peculiar. As Antony Cherriman, the Property agent at Savills, shares:

'Despite years of experience within the local area, to see something which offers this level of design is quite a rarity.'
