A central Dalston development with apartments as stylish as they come

FiftySevenEast more than delivers when it comes to on-the-pulse London living. Situated in Hackney’s happening Dalston district, this collection of swish apartments calls the area’s most striking residential tower home. Its aluminium façades pay homage to the urban architecture of the borough, while the graffitied front lobby nods to the rainbow-coloured street art splashed over its walls and pavements.

The development has one, two and three-bedroom apartments, all of which share a luxe, contemporary open-plan design, with floor-to-ceiling windows and muted, earthy shades. Features and furnishings are state-of-the-art, and include Siemens kitchen appliances, underfloor heating and Villeroy & Boch bathroom furniture (with a chic standalone bath tub). All of the homes benefit from a balcony or terrace, which affords spectacular views across the London skyline. You can enjoy the highest vistas from the furnished sky terrace on the roof of the tower.

Elsewhere, there’s a peaceful communal garden and secure space for bicycles (a popular way to get around Dalston). Residents can also expect a 12-hour-a-day concierge service for things like package signing and taxi bookings.

FiftySevenEast has a sought-after spot on Kingsland Road, one of East London’s most exciting thoroughfares. It’s a glorious mish-mash of cocktail bars (both kitsch and understated), proper East End pubs, and independent restaurants, and brags ‘Pho Mile’, a conga-line of Vietnamese eateries. And people flock far and wide for the vintage wares here – the Oxfam store, especially, is among the most famous in London, plus Kingsland Market is a retro-lover’s dream.

Perhaps FiftySevenEast’s most helpful neighbour, though, is Dalston Kingsland – right next door. The station is serviced by the Overground for stops that include Camden Town, West Hampstead, Stratford and Liverpool Street. In other words, from its theatres to its green spaces, you can pretty much experience the best bits of the capital with ease.

Well built. Good design. I was looking for an apartment that is close to the city but still provides a good balance of life in east London. The development provides excellent quality living. Management have been quick to deal with any snags or issues
