An impressive two bedroom live / work unit in a gorgeous and iconic former Trebor factory building, boasting a wealth of space, lofty ceilings and a great location. Located close to Upton Park, which conveniently has underground access to both the Hammersmith and City and District lines making this a great location for commuters.

The sense of space in this unique apartment is really something to behold and offers a rare opportunity to own this little piece of local history.


You will be immediately impressed by the scale of this building from the moment you enter the atrium hallway. Access to your third floor apartment is via communal stairs or lift. Being in this elevated position means you have stunning views over London. Inside your new abode, wooden effect flooring sweeps throughout the whole 1022 square feet of this versatile, open plan space. The nature of the layout lends itself to a number of alternative configurations, with space for two huge bedrooms and a large living space. The kitchen is well equipped and opens into the living space, with sleek units and metro style splashback tiling. This unique space is full of surprising nooks and crannies, perfect for setting up work from home desks, art equipment or play spaces for children. The bathroom is smart and contemporary with white tiling and a glistening white three piece suite including waterfall shower over the tub.

There are over 400 independent clothing stores showcasing up and coming designers, offering a welcome change from the usual high street chain stores.
- You are in for a culinary treat exploring the restaurants in your new locale; head to Himalaya Restaurant for authentic Pakistani curries and thirst quenching lassis, or Bloom Cafe x Pie Republic for much loved, freshly baked pies as well as English breakfasts and sumptuous cookies.
- For lovely green space close to your doorstep, head to Plashet Park. A heritage community park with lawns for picnicking, a recently opened cafe, bowling green and tennis courts.

a word from the owner...

"We have absolutely loved living in this flat for the past 7 years. The large open-plan space that can be divided with sliding doors and the big loft-style windows with unobstructed views make the flat a wonderfully unique place to live. The whole building design is really well considered. We love the history of the building - The Trebor Sweet Factory - and hearing stories from passers-by who remember getting free sweets from the factory as a child. It's a real local landmark. You will get used to everyone from friends to delivery drivers saying how cool the flat and/or building is! We also love how quiet the flat is. Definitely a rare and coveted thing in London! The solid factory building work means we hardly hear our neighbours. The building as a whole has a community feel, People are friendly and respectful of each other. Neighbours help each other out. It's a really nice atmosphere to live in. This flat is the perfect space for hosting friends and family - especially at New Year's when we highly recommend you go up to the top floor to see fireworks displays going off all across London - truly spectacular!"

Our Local Guide:
Forest Gate

Shaftesbury Road, Forest Gate — Stow Brothers

If you’ve already heard Chiwetel Ejiofor or Idris Elba proudly discussing their hometown, you probably don’t need us to convince you of Forest Gate’s merits, but for those who haven’t, let us catch you up…

With a heritage rooted in culture, it’s not surprising that Forest Gate has a strong creative community today. During just one week in the 60s, the Upper Cut Club music venue there hosted – deep breath – The Who, the Animals, the Spencer Davis Group, Geno Washington and Jimi Hendrix. These days you’re more likely to find the area’s artistic-types supping drinks in the cool cafes and bars. Along with the period property and proximity to green space, this independent scene has been the main draw for new arrivals to the area, although the fact that Forest Gate is now on the Crossrail’s Elizabeth line has definitely helped nudge people in the right direction.
