An exceptional Grade II Listed Georgian townhouse nestled in the heart of Whitechapel, adjacent to Aldgate and within easy walking distance of The City. With its characterful charm effortlessly blending quintessentially British period features with contemporary and functional living, the house offers style, history, and potential to a new owner. Original box sash windows, elegant period panelling, cast iron fireplaces, exposed timber floorboards and a private South-West facing garden are just some of the great features of this home which dates to circa 1795.

Lovingly maintained by the current owners whose family have owned the house for over 20 years; they have endeavoured to sympathetically refurbish and preserve as much of the original features as possible. The raised ground floor comprises a large reception room/dining room, with original box sash windows and shutters to the front facade, a cast iron fireplace and double doors opening out to a shaker style kitchen with views on to the garden. The lower ground floor houses two double bedrooms, with the front bedroom providing access to a storage vault which is believed to be the former coal store for the house. The first floor consists of a generously proportioned main bedroom with fireplace and two large sash windows to the front, and a family bathroom located to the rear with a feature cast iron roll top bath, separate shower, wash basin, wc and green subway style tiles. The second floor offers a truly unique space in the form of a library / reception room which was reconstructed following bomb damage in WWII, it showcases high ceilings and impressive timber framed glass atrium with sash windows filling the room with natural light. There is also access to the roof with terrace space via a ladder from the second floor and this area offers an incoming owner potential to improve upon the space. The house offers versatile living space with the added benefit of potential to extend to the rear from the garden and above from the roof terrace (subject to the usual planning consents).

Whitechapel has benefitted from major regeneration in recent years with new public spaces, Crossrail and a new town hall. Spitalfields and Shoreditch are just a short walk away with endless dining and retail options, and the current owners particularly enjoy being close to two fantastic city farms - Stepney City farm in particular has a great cafe and farmers market. The area also offers an abundance of transport links with Whitechapel Overground, Underground and Crossrail just 0.4 miles away (Hammersmith & City, District Line and Elizabeth Line). Aldgate Station (Metropolitan and Circle Line), Tower Hill DLR and Underground (District and Circle Line and DLR) and Shadwell DLR which allows access to London City Airport and Canary Warf are all within easy reach.
