THIS gorgeous room in trendy East London with skylights and antique covered tub is being marketed to renters – but still has an attraction.
This converted 1930s warehouse double room needs a new occupant, but you won’t be the only one living in the space.
Potential tenants will share the space with a “diverse mix of people” in one of the last “really spectacular” old-fashioned warehouses.
There are five bedrooms around a huge 1200 sqft common area – packed with antiques and vintage collectibles.
Vintage posters adorn the kitchen walls – and the space is befitting a wood-burning stove for chilly London nights.
And in the bathroom, one wall has exposed brick while the floor is a classic black and white checkered pattern.
The space is equipped with an antique French roll-in tub and a butler’s sink.
The bedroom on offer, priced at £830 before payment, is a loft-style room, with high ceilings and a bed in the mezzanine.
The listing on GumTree says: “It’s a great loft-style room with high ceilings and a mezzanine bed (giving you the benefit of all the available floor space below).
“It’s a large ‘L’-shaped room with desk space and permanently fixed shelves under the mezzanine. It can be furnished with classic pieces including a chesterfield chair, dresser, couch and mattress. .
“This is one of the last truly spectacular old-fashioned warehouse holdings left in Hackney, it’s part of an eclectic multi-family living space; you won’t find much. other people like this in zone 2.”
The large common area had previously been used for photo sessions – but instead, there were no TVs to encourage the “endangered pastime”.
And the antique rooms are not for the faint of heart, as the walls are embellished with vermilion.
But millennials might be excited about the apartment’s overhead skylight, which provides plenty of natural light during the day and is “ideal for our giant houseplants.”
And to add to the exotic furnishings, the area has its own PULPIT church.
Existing tenants say the quirky addition: “Great for sermons, political manifestos, or just general preaching to converted people.”
But potential renters have been warned that this is not a party house – so don’t expect to bring the whole pub back with you after a night out.
On the rooftop, the common area is currently being used for growing vegetables and beekeeping – so the list is perfect for the eco-warrior.
But people who share space with each other need to “respect and appreciate” each other and must “contribute to the common dynamism” of the “peaceful” apartment.
And the perfect tenant for this eccentric apartment should be ready to have a “healthy debate on pretty much any subject” and be warned that “nothing is taboo.”
But they’ll also be interested in recycling, composting and tree keeping – as well as rickshaw racing.
Writing about the hobbies of current tenants, the listing said: “Hobbies include rickshaw racing (sled racing, in fact! Not RuPaul – but high heels are common in the house too), tiki , vintage cars, cycling, staying fit, auto boots, blues, cooking, pickling, gardening, vintage apparel, fashion, travel, cheese and music.”
