Condo/Apartment -
1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 3
London, England
This contemporary apartment locates in an impressive historical brewery residential building between Whitechapel and the City of London (Zone 2)

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.

Alvin's flat is a class act. His instructions on reaching tje flat were clear. We duly turned off the Mile End Road at the Tesco store, and came to a green door in the wall. We entered an old narrow lane and walked through the brown gate to the apartment. Alvin met us at the door, and explained everything we...
