Location: Mothers Square in London, England

Price: £500,000 (approximately $579,242 USD)

Footprint: 597 square feet (two bedrooms, one bath)

From the Agent: "This quaint two-bedroom apartment is situated on Mothers Square in Lower Clapton. The apartment has been sensitively renovated by the current owner, an interior designer, who introduced contemporary interventions to create a bright home that is also calm and serene. A neutral color palette accentuates light drawn in from large sash windows from two aspects, and a dark pine floor ties the spaces together cohesively. Mothers Square is a short walk from the cafes and restaurants on Chatsworth Road and the sprawling green space of Hackney Downs Park."

The apartment building is flanked by Tuscan columns and rests behind a low wrought-iron gate flush with greenery.

Dark pine floorboards run throughout the residence. The walls are painted a cool shade of gray known as Blackened by Farrow and Ball.

The open kitchen features a Carrara marble countertop and pale pistachio cabinetry. 

Built-in shelving can be found peppered throughout the interiors.

Each of the bedrooms are bathed in natural light and present calming corners for relaxation.
