This single-storey modernist home dates from 1969 and wraps around a private walled garden in the heart of arty Hackney Wick.
The three-bedroom Brinkworth Way property is for sale via The Modern House for £775,000 freehold and was built by London City Council. More recently, it has undergone a top-to-toe renovation by its current owners, with some contemporary additions.
Its kitchen, living room, and dining area are free-flowing across one side of the property’s floor plan, culminating with the walled garden via sliding glass doors. Bedrooms, meanwhile, occupy the other half of the London property, wrapping around the quiet courtyard. Each is bright and minimalist, with one presently set up as a home office with built-in shelving.
Dark wood and white quartz countertops are used in the kitchen, while the rest of the house has a light, breezy material palette of white walls, pale wooden floors and overhead skylights and brass accents throughout.
The walled garden was also recently redesigned, and while it’s not yet matured, it will do so over the coming years, with bamboo and trees brought from New Zealand.
Brinkworth Way is a quiet residential estate between Victoria Park and the River Lee and Hackney marshes. Meanwhile, Hackney Wick is a thriving enclave with co-working spaces, restaurants, bars, schools and galleries. The Olympic Park is also within walking distance, and the new V&A museum will open next spring in Stratford.
