Full description

Tenure: Share of Freehold

An utterly charming, Georgian, Grade II listed cottage in a tranquil canal side setting with an established shared garden. EPC: E

This unique property has a wonderful open plan kitchen reception room with vaulted ceiling opening onto an extensive canal-side deck, a master bedroom with en suite shower room, 3 further bedrooms, a family bathroom and parking.

Laundry Cottage is part of a small complex of buildings known as Nelson's Wharf, tucked away in a quiet corner of the St Anne's conservation area in Limehouse. From the 1920s, Nelson's Wharf became the Prince of Wales Sea Training Hostel of the British and Foreign Sailor's Society. What is now the garden, was the parade ground (complete with a ship's mast) but the most obvious connection to that era is in the basement, where the pool used to teach the cadets to swim before being sent to sea is still there. This was refurbished by the current owners into a fully functioning, heated pool plus a sauna, changing areas and WC about 20 years ago. Plans are being considered to refurbish the space once again and the new purchasers will have the opportunity to specify the form this might take.


Adjacent to St Anne's (one of Hawksmoor's great east end churches), Newell Street is only a short distance from Canary Wharf but also has easy connections to the City and West End via the DLR, the number 15 bus service and the Thames Clipper. The introduction of Crossrail to Canary Wharf will further enhance the area's transport connections.
