An elegant two-bedroom Victorian maisonette with its own front door, arranged over the top two floors (above an artist’s studio which occupies the lower floors) and featuring a private west facing terrace. Built circa 1900, this great East London home is nestled within the Old Bethnal Green Conservation Area, and as such boasts timeless Victorian architecture with a preserved façade.

Positioned on the edge of Bethnal Green and Hackney, the maisonette is perfectly located for renowned Columbia Road and Broadway Market. The home enjoys a bright, airy feel with high ceilings, a rich and homely palette, and an east-to-west aspect that ensures wonderful natural light throughout the day. The dual-aspect living, dining and kitchen area opens onto a private west-facing terrace, ideal for enjoying the afternoon sun. The neutral aesthetic blends seamlessly with period features, including engineered wood flooring, large sash windows, and wood floorboards beneath the carpeting in the bedrooms. The first floor also benefits from a utility area leading to a fully tiled shower room - refurbished in recent years by the current owner. The main bedroom is a spacious double with ample room for storage and two large windows overlooking Temple Street. The second double bedroom is versatile, making an excellent guest room or home office. The property further benefits from recently fitted double glazed windows.

History & Area Temple Street forms part of The Winkley Estate, a small area of distinctive late Victorian development: Four blocks of old terraced houses between Temple Street and Teesdale Street which were demolished by Henry and Charles Winkley for their redevelopment. The Winkley Estate was built between 1898 and 1904 and combined three types of residential accommodation with three small factories, numerous cabinet makers’ workshops and shops on Old Bethnal Green Road. The four blocks of buildings were designed to be a community in miniature, providing homes, jobs, shops and services in various forms in close proximity. Many of the original architectural details of the terraced houses, dwellings, factories workshops and shopfronts have been retained and these give the area a very special and well preserved character. The maisonette occupies an enviable position on the Bethnal Green/Hackney borders, the surrounding area is brimming with independent coffee shops, acclaimed restaurants, quirky bars and exclusive retailers, notably on Columbia Road, Hackney Road, Brick Lane, Redchurch Street and Broadway Market. Some of the immediate hotspots include: The Common - serving excellent cofee and pastries on Old Bethnal Green Road, Ozone - an amazing brunch spot on Emma Street and The Marksman, a locally loved gastro pub. The property is within easy reach of the green open spaces of London Fields, Victoria Park, Haggerston Park and Hackney City Farm, as well as The Regent’s Canal towpath and London Fields Lido. Nearby transport links include Cambridge Heath Overground Station 0.3 miles away, and Bethnal Green Underground Station just 0.4 miles away, allowing swift access to the West End.
