We know the East. Let's talk.
Set within a sought-after conservation area on the Jesus (Green) Hospital Estate, this elegant 2 bedroom Victorian terraced house has been taken back to brick by the current owners and restored, extended and improved with great consideration to create a space which seamlessly blends a Victorian, Industrial and contemporary aesthetic.
Dating back to circa 1860-1900, this picturesque collection of Victorian homes are set around an attractive green, moments from Columbia Road and its renowned Sunday flower market. A Victorian home with modern additions: The ground floor space has been opened up to provide a light and airy living area which showcases the high ceilings with feature Victorian style coving and ceiling roses, as well as European oak engineered wood flooring in herringbone layout, an exposed brick fireplace with log burner, cast iron radiators and large sash window with period correct shutters. The eat-in kitchen with Intema cabinetry, integrated appliances and matte black finishes are bathed in natural light from the large skylight, crittall style floor to ceiling fixed window panels and french doors which open on to the private patio garden. The position of the house within the Jesus Hospital Estate means that it is afforded a good size patio garden within the conservation area. With Victorian brick walls to all three boundaries and large terrazzo style tiles, this contemporary space attracts sunshine from the east and west during the summer months. The space under the stairs has been utilised well to create a guest WC and additional storage space. Additionally there are inegrated speakers set into the ceilings on the ground floor - great for entertaining. Natural light falls on to the upstairs landing through a sizable double-glazed skylight; the main bedroom boasts plank formation engineered oak wood flooring, south facing sash windows and recesses perfect for storage, as well as another exposed brick fireplace. The second double bedroom has views over the garden, and the spacious bathroom is accessed from the half landing and features vaulted ceilings and a skylight which envelops the freestanding bathtub and cool green tiled wall in natural light. All bathroom fixtures, fittings and tiles are designed by Tom Dixon (for Vitra), including the separate shower with rainfall shower head and reeded glass storage cabinet with integrated circular sink. There is a loft hatch with a fitted (and folding) ladder for easy access to this great storage space, which the current owner has boarded out and even installed an electric Velux window – a rarity on the Jesus Hospital Estate. A new owner can also benefit from the planning permission that has been granted for a ground floor side return extension, meaning that works can commence without delay should you desire more space.
