Property prices continue to rise in east London but the heartland is still in reach of first-time buyers.

Bow, Bethnal Green and Mile End have a high level of public housing, thrown up after the war. These blocks may not be beautiful but they do help keep prices down. Yet this part of London drips with history and is sprinkled with community spaces and conservation areas.

St Clements, formerly a Victorian workhouse infirmary, is being redeveloped into a walled estate of 252 private, shared-ownership and rental homes.

It was palatial when built, with marble pillars, a chapel and a 100ft-long dining hall. The impressive listed frontage in Mile End Road remains, along with listed workshops and a lodge, now refurbished and for sale. Prices from £485,000. Newly built flats in the landscaped grounds start at £440,000.

The site backs on to Tower Hamlets Cemetery Park nature reserve, while the Central line Tube station is only moments away. Call 020 8712 2425.
