The Kiln Works is located in Limehouse, a vibrant area in the London Borough of Tower Hamlets. One of the perks of living in the new residential complex is its close proximity to the looming towers and world-class amenities of Canary Wharf and the City. In addition, Limehouse itself is generously peppered with various dining, retail, and leisure options, making sure that you have everything needed just outside your home.
The neighbourhood offers plenty of green spaces, where you can relax and recharge away from the buzzing streets. Mere minutes away from the Kiln Works is King Edward Memorial Park, a beautiful riverside space sprawled across 3,3 hectares with its lush greenery. The park accommodates a bandstand, a children's playground, a bowling green, an all-weather football pitch, and tennis courts. You can enjoy stunning views from one of its waterfront benches.
Apart from its amazing location between the two bustling financial districts, the Kiln Works also has access to amazing transport links. A short stroll away from the complex is Limehouse Station, served by National Rail (c2c) and Docklands Light Railway, providing a 5-minute trip to Bank and Fenchurch Street, among many other destinations.
Stretched along Ratcliffe Cross Street, the mid-rise development of the Kiln Works features a dark brick façade that complements the surrounding area with its old bridges and maritime spirit. The new complex features an abundance of large floor-to-ceiling windows and a mix of Juliet and stacked balconies, equipped with simple metal railings. Each level is separated by a light-coloured line, adding some dynamism to the exterior. The Kiln Works blends in perfectly with the old riverside architecture.
The courtyard of the Kiln Works is home to a magnificent collection of landscaped communal gardens, where you can sit on a bench and catch some breath while admiring the beautiful greenery. In addition, there are a lawn and a playground for kids to explore. Inside, you are greeted with a tiled communal entrance hall that creates a welcoming atmosphere and provides two passenger lifts for your convenience. To ensure top security, all apartments are equipped with an audio-visual door entry system. In addition, the complex includes cycle storage.
The Kiln Works boasts a contemporary collection of 78 units, including one-, two-, and three-bedroom apartments. The kitchens feature fitted modular handleless units in a grey matt finish, Staron solid worktops, and an array of Siemens integrated appliances, which includes an oven, a microwave, an induction hob, an extractor, a tall fridge/freezer, a dishwasher, and an A energy-rated washer-dryer placed in a separate utility cupboard. Meanwhile, all bathrooms benefit from a collection of Duravit appliances.
