A striking two-bedroom, two-bathroom apartment in East London occupies the historic Lion Mills building, a former cotton factory set just off Hackney Road. The 1,039-square-foot dwelling is tucked toward the back of the renovated building’s top floor and features an open-plan layout with ample windows and a pitched roof.
Upon entry, a small hallway with built-in storage leads to the L-shaped living spaces, where a wrought-iron spiral staircase casually separates the primary gathering areas. Arched windows wrap around the kitchen, dining area, and living room, flooding the main level with natural light. The updated kitchen combines dark cabinets with natural-stone countertops and mirror-tiled backsplash.
Original details can be found throughout the converted warehouse flat, including refinished hardwood floors and exposed brick walls that hint at the building’s industrial heritage. The ornate staircase leads to a semi-enclosed mezzanine level, which includes the primary bedroom with a large skylight, as well as an en suite bathroom with a double-ended soaking tub. On the main level near the primary living spaces, there is an additional bedroom that can easily be converted into a home office.
The Lion Mills building offers a shared courtyard garden, but there are also a number of nearby green spaces that residents can enjoy, including Haggerston Park, Victoria Park, and London Fields. The flat is also conveniently located less than a mile from the popular Broadway Market, as well as the Columbia Road Flower Market.

The apartment at Lion Mills in London (E2), is currently listed for £795,000 (approximately $1,106,075 USD) by Aucoot.
