A rare opportunity to acquire a highly sought-after freehold house with an east facing courtyard garden on the Winkley Estate, within the Old Bethnal Green Road Conservation Area.

The house was sympathetically refurbished by its architect owners in 2021, the design of which provides this wonderful home with a bright, tranquil and understated vibe. This 3 double bedroom Victorian terraced house (currently configured as 2 bedrooms and 2 reception rooms) has a wealth of features (old and new) which combine to create a truly unique offering. The design of the estate itself fosters a close community feel with neighbours and is something that will be missed by the current owners. Interior Inside the red brick and original sash window exterior of this Victorian terraced house (built between 1898 and 1904) lies a wonderful mix of original features, stylish design and functional space. The ground floor comprises entrance hall, bright reception area and open plan kitchen/diner which are all fitted with grey painted original wood timber floors. There is a generous use of birch plywood throughout the property, most notably with the bespoke designed kitchen units. From the kitchen, glazed doors lead out to the cobbled courtyard with exposed brick and larch clad walls. The entrance hall leads through to the rear of the property and a fully fitted family bathroom with rubber studded flooring, walk-in tiled shower, wall mounted toilet, Belfast sink with laboratory taps and two obscured glazed windows. Under the stairs on the ground floor, there is a small utility cupboard with plumbing for washing machine) and good-sized storage cupboard. The wooden staircase is bright and open and benefits from original sash windows on each of the half-landings. The flooring throughout the stairs, landings and first floor are also original wood timber floors and have been stripped and sealed with Osmo oil to give a warm wood feel to all areas. The first floor comprises the main bedroom and another large bathroom. This bathroom has more beautiful birch plywood panelling, as well as a large sash window, fitted enamel bathtub, wall hung sink and plenty of space for storage. The main bedroom is a large rectangular space with an original chimney breast running up the south wall and is a gloriously bright and calming room. The second floor is currently configured as a study and second living area but lends itself perfectly as two additional bedrooms if so desired. Warm wood timber floors are fitted across the floor with natural daylight streaming in from front and back. The large original sash windows have been retained and professionally refurbished in 2022 with a 5 year guarantee. Finally, housed under the slate roof is a large loft space which is ripe for conversion (subject to the usual consents) if more space is required. This home offers a functional space to live (and work), with a bespoke and curated interior, all set within this highly desirable and conservation protected pocket of East London.

Canrobert forms part of The Winkley Estate, a small area of distinctive late Victorian development: Four blocks of 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 house 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, Ozone and The Marksman. 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 and Bethnal Green Underground Station.
