A unique Victorian family house with an elegantly executed lower ground conversion
A very comfortable and stylish home located a short walk from the centre 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 has been extensively improved by the current owners, who have also added a basement - making it an extremely rare gem in this area of charming, humble houses. The house now has the addition of self-contained living space with en-suite bedroom gaining natural light through an ingenious light well and fire escape. Particular attention has been in making this an inviting and friendly space for family members to relax, work and play, with a surprisingly generous ceiling height throughout and wonderful vintage fixtures and fittings…even a log burner! Behind the scenes is some robust technology to ensure this space is the perfect environment to live and grow in. The original spaces of the house include a spacious and bright through reception room which opens into the impressive kitchen dining room. There are two double bedrooms upstairs, and a large luxurious bathroom with a separate bath and shower. The rear garden is a space to enjoy relaxing, entertaining and for children to play.
The interior is fun and playful - much effort has gone in restoring the fireplaces with appropriate Victorian surrounds, and exposed wooden floorboards, plenty of natural materials and a wonderfully eclectic art collection adorning the walls finish the look of this very handsome and welcoming property.
The location is one of Mr and Mrs Clarkes favourite haunts - a short walk from Columbia Road Flower Market, the bars and restaurants of Hackney Road and the hustle and bustle of Bethnal Green Road. This is everything you could wish for from urban life - outstanding neighbourhood eating and drinking establishments, independent shops, brilliant public spaces and excellent transport links.
