Blending traditional Victorian and contemporary influences effortlessly, this three-bedroom home tucked behind Lauriston Road on quiet tree-lined Balcorne Street maximises space and light, and spans almost 1,250sqft of living space, with the addition of a unique south facing roof terrace and courtyard patio garden. The house is within the coveted catchment area for Mossbourne Academy.

The ground floor comprises a dual aspect through lounge with space for dining, generous ceiling heights and a large bay fronted sash window; fitted cabinetry and shelving span the length of an entire wall, as well as two decorative recessed fireplaces, and engineered wood flooring. The bright kitchen/breakfast room was completely renovated circa 2021 and is an inviting space with wood worktops, shaker style cabinets and wide plank engineered wood flooring . A patio door opens out from the kitchen on to the decked courtyard style walled garden with south facing aspect. The first floor comprises a main bedroom with bay window and a cleverly designed walk in storage cupboard which the current owner uses as a home office/dressing area. There is a further double bedroom to the rear, and a family bathroom with Mediterranean style patterned floor tiles, underfloor heating and a large sash window bringing in great natural light. Both bedrooms on the first floor benefit from air conditioning, a rare asset with the increasingly warm British summers. The second floor hosts a third double bedroom with statement skylights and a walk-in shower room; the third floor also leads out to the private roof terrace (the only one permitted on the street to date) with a south facing aspect, it is a wonderful space to enjoy with views of St John of Jerusalem Church spire. There is also further excellent storage in the eaves. The current owner has maintained and improved the property during their ownership, with recent maintenance and repairs carried out to the exterior of the building and the roof.

Nearby Well Street also offers some great dining options with Paulie’s for delicious New York style bagels, and The Gun public house with modern Chinese/Vietnamese inspired dishes from Ling Lings. Victoria Park and Regents Canal are just a short walk away, with London Fields and Broadway Market less than 15 mins walk away. There are endless options for pubs, shops and cafes all by foot. St John of Jerusalem Church and gardens, as well as Well Street Common are moments from the property, as well the larger green spaces of London Fields and Victoria Park, which are also all within walking distance. London Fields overground station is within easy reach (circa 0.5 miles), Homerton overground station is also just 0.7 miles away. There are a number of well-connected bus routes run from surrounding Mare Street, Well Street and Victoria Park Road.
