A delightful two bedroom terraced house, bursting with personality

Christian Eldershaw

Behind this ever-so-polite Victorian facade lives a home that both delights and intrigues. This charming two bedroom house, just off Columbia Road, is in the heart of the Jesus Green Conservation area - an outstandingly well preserved estate of workers houses designed by Henry Robert Abraham in the 1860’s.

The house itself has been improved and extended over the years, whilst retaining its character and charm. Head inside, kick your shoes off from exploring the weekend markets and soak up the warm atmosphere in the living room. Here is the perfect spot to marvel at your sophisticated home and treasures. There’s plenty of room to keep books, art and things that mean a lot to you. Extra points for spotting the storage under the stairs…This space has been opened up to create a more expansive flow, and is cleverly linked to the kitchen and beyond by an internal window which draws the eye and brings in natural light.

Sunset hues, rustic-luxe materials and lots of shiny glass to see the outside world, are all found in the kitchen area. The kitchen is a comfortable place in which to cook and entertain, and is an area this family spends a lot of time in - not simply eating or cooking, but as a workspace and a second reception area. Fling the doors open and dine alfresco in the privacy of your own garden. The blinds diffuse the afternoon light in summer, or act as a frame for impressive sunsets.

Upstairs, there are two bedrooms, the second of which has been cleverly divided into two areas, allowing young children to have separate spaces. This versatile space can easily be changed back into a double bedroom. The master bedroom next-door is a peaceful haven. The feature wall steals the show here, but the space is generous. The bathroom is a sophisticated place to have an indulgent bathe in the roll top bath. Keeping the feature fireplace in here has proven to be a great choice.

Location

Boisterous Bethnal Green

A creative cluster of artistic community

"I love it for its chaotic, noisy, boisterous nature; a place were people come to party and blow off steam".
Carl Turner, Architect & Founding Director of Turner Works

Bethnal Green is one of the most archetypal East End neighbourhoods - a place where cutting edge contemporary architecture sits beside historic Georgian ruins; a fashionable hot spot where avant-garde cuisine, the humble café and little restaurants serving delicious food from across the globe sit side by side; it is bold and urban yet is also friendly and relaxed.

Transport links are amazing, the schools are good and the nightlife is enticing.

An amazing archetypal East End neighbourhood

Jesus Green is a wonderfully well preserved estate of workers houses dating back to the 1860’s, abutting Columbia Road (with its famous Sunday flower market). Jesus Green refers to the pretty little park at its centre, surrounded by picturesque terraced homes.

Some of East London’s most prized gems are within walking distance - the aforementioned Columbia Road, Broadway Market - with its incredible mix of restaurants and independent shops, and the open spaces of London Fields (think wild flower meadows and its famous Lido) and Victoria Park.

Mr Clarke loves the restaurant scene in this part of town - there are some of the best neighbourhood eateries in London within walking distance. Mrs Clarke loves the relaxed and friendly village vibe.

The Royal Oak, The Well & Bucket are local staples, and the Star of Bethnal Green is one for those who prefer their pubs a little, well, more ravey…

  • Closest village/town: Eclectic Bethnal Green has everything you need, but the rest of London is on your doorstep!
  • Post Office: 1
  • Stores: The independent shops are a must see; antique furniture, interior decor, florists, coffee spots
  • Pubs: A great variety of vibes and pubs nearby
  • Walks: A lovely Sunday stroll by the canal side tops off the weekend
