Area Guide by Estate Agents in Stepney E1

Estate Agents in Stepney, E1

Alex Neil is an excellent choice when you need estate agents in Stepney, E1. We are a multi-award-winning estate agency and specialise in sales and lettings in Stepney, E1 and east London. Stepney is a district in the East End of London and lies between Whitechapel, riverside Limehouse and historical Wapping in the London Borough of Tower Hamlets.

Area Guide: Before the 19th century, Stepney was, like many other parts of today's east London, a quiet and sparsely populated area. However, rapid population growth triggered rapid development of accommodation, mainly for maritime workers along the river and Mile End Road. Stepney Green railway station was opened in 1902 and further boosted the district's growth.

Edwardian and Victorian housing are common in Stepney E1

Stepney suffered severe damage during the Blitz in WWII, destroying a third of the district during the attempted destruction of London's docks. In the 1960s, the area underwent extensive development, creating modern residential estates amongst older established properties.

Despite the Blitz destruction, the Georgian architecture and Victorian era housing near Arbour Square and Matlock Street make fine homes today. Recent developments have turned many older buildings into new-build luxury developments. New apartment buildings on traditional roads have landscaped courtyards that offer residents a charming combination of history and modern-day living.

Stepney's centre revolves around St Dunstan's 10th century All Saints Church on Stepney High Street. Another landmark is Stepney City Farm, built in the 1970s on a neglected bombsite. This three-acre working farm is a tourist attraction and a place where everyone can meet farm animals or learn how to grow their food. The farm hosts a famous Farmer's Market, bringing together a lot of fresh local produce.

Stepney's good transport links attract young professionals. Nearby Whitechapel tube station provides overground trains to Canada Water, where you change to the Jubilee Line for Canary Wharf via overground trains to Canada Water. Stepney Green Underground station, in Zone 2, is also served by the District and Hammersmith & City lines. There are also several well-connected bus routes and Santander Bike docking stations.

The area is also popular with students as it is close to the Queen Mary University of London and offers an easy commute to The City. The abundance of green spaces and local activities make it desirable for young families. Historical roots and excellent transport links make Stepney a highly sought-after place.
