This former stable has been transformed into a unique one bedroom Freehold house. Designed to an exacting standard this is a work of art as well as a home. Features include imported bricks from France to give a distinct hue, large balcony, solar panels and a very high specification throughout.
Positioned on a quiet residential street a short walk from Hackney Downs station, is this elegant redevelopment of a former stables building. The team behind the project is OMDA, a design-led architect practice founded by Adam Ogilvy, Richard MacRae and Ellinor DeGory.
Sladen Place occupies the ground and first floor, with a combined living and kitchen area and private balcony with double doors allowing light to filter into the room. Downstairs there is a bedroom with a separate, large dressing room which could easily be an office/guest room, wet room and a beautiful entrance with clever design to be seen all around.
Internally, the open living spaces are bright with high ceilings and plenty of glazing. The proportions of the rooms and the palette of raw materials, particularly wood, echo the buildings past.
Hackney has become a very popular area of east London with the help of the London Overground extension. As a result, there are plenty of very good independent cafes, restaurants and pubs in the immediate area. Broadway Market, a short walk away, has a reputation for excellent places to eat and drink, and hosts a food market on Saturdays.
The nearest stations are Hackney Central and Hackney Downs, both running regular London Overground Services. Trains from Hackeny Downs reach Liverpool Street in nine minutes, for connections to the Central Line, and trains from Hackney Central reach Highbury & Islington in six minutes, for connections to the Victoria Line.
