A rare opportunity to acquire what is arguably one of the most impressive houses in the highly sought after Jesus Green conservation area.
This 3 double bedroom Victorian terraced house has been the subject of an extensive and sympathetic refurbishment project by its current owners. Period charm has been seamlessly integrated with modern amenity; executed to such a level of design consideration, painstaking attention to detail and meticulous quality of finish to truly set this remarkable home apart.
Offering 1,055 sq ft of flexible living space, the interiors make the most of the building’s dimensions to create a wonderful flow throughout. The first floor comprises 3 well-proportioned double bedrooms, a family bathroom and ample storage via a ceiling height airing cupboard and adjacent loft space. The ground floor features a double length reception room with separate eat in kitchen opening out to a mature courtyard garden with bright south facing aspect.
The property benefits from tailored joinery throughout, all of birch and Suffolk oak construction executed in Shaker style which contributes significantly to the overall design coherence of the house. The bespoke cabinet work extends from the master bedroom with its substantial wardrobes and integrated chest of drawers to the bathroom, airing cupboard and hand-made kitchen with pantry and abundance of configurable storage. A hand crafted oak table designed for the eat in area completes the room.
The kitchen is appointed entirely with high end Liebherr and Miele appliances encompassing; family sized, side by side stainless steel larder fridge and freezer with the freezer incorporating a plumbed in ice maker, an integrated Miele dishwasher, paired with a Miele washer and drier in the laundry cupboard. The centrepiece of the kitchen is the French manufactured Lacanche Moderne range cooker with dual 55l ovens, five gas burners and built in storage drawers. Bi-fold doors open onto the charming south facing garden to create the perfect alfresco living and dining space.
The fabric of the house has been renewed to modern standards to optimise energy efficiency and to allow for ease of maintenance. Extensive rewiring, plumbing and an almost entire replastering of the house set back to brick coupled with the replacement of the full heating and water system has allowed for the integration of a 4.5 bar pump which provides considerable water pressure throughout the house. A Chesney’s wood burning stove provides an attractive and energy efficient focal point for the living room.
The house occupies an enviable position in what is unquestionably one of the most desirable residential locations in the East End of London. Located in the heart of tranquil Jesus Green and bordering the vibrant Columbia Road Flower Market, this picturesque area still manages to retain a unique character and village feel while remaining close to the city. The Jesus Green Conservation Area is steeped in history and remains a favoured backdrop for BBC period drama, fashion and Hollywood film.
The surrounding area boasts a cosmopolitan feel with a myriad of coffee shops, acclaimed restaurants, bars and outstanding independent retailers, notably on Columbia Road, Hackney Road, Brick Lane, Redchurch Street and Broadway Market.
As well as Jesus Green itself, the property is within easy reach of the green open spaces of both Haggerston Park and the famed Hackney City Farm as well as Victoria Park with its boating lake and wealth of recreation and sports facilities.
Nearby transport links include Hoxton Overground Station (0.6 miles) and Bethnal Green Underground Station (0.7 miles). Liverpool Street Station is 1.2 miles and can be easily reached on foot or by train. There are three Santander cycle stands within Jesus Green as well as a wealth of local bus routes on Hackney Road providing 24 hour access to the rest of London. The nearby A12 and A1 offer quick routes out of London to the M11 and M25.
