Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Entering through the deep arched porch and front door, you will be welcomed by an astonishing tripartite hall into a beautifully proportioned detached Victorian house. Clifton House was constructed by a master builder as part of the Lamb Farm development pioneered by Rev Samuel Rhodes, which gradually transformed the area from market gardens to desirable middle class housing between 1803 and 1870. Inside, Clifton House retains its original Victorian layout. On the ground floor, 10'6'' high formal rooms, including a dining room and drawing room with broad bay windows and a third reception - currently used as a generous study, lead off two sides of the hallway. An elegant dog-leg stair with mahogany handrail leads off the third side of the hall. These formal rooms have retained many of the original features, including elaborate recently-restored plaster cornicing and skirting boards, built-in cupboards and internal window shutters. To the rear is the kitchen with its high ceilings, a new range in the fireplace, original cupboards and work surfaces, and opens through French windows into a sun room which was built by the present owners in the 1990s. These two rooms could be opened up to create a larger kitchen in future. Upstairs, the four double bedrooms and family bathroom are laid out in a very Classical arrangement, occupying each corner of the building’s overall square plan. In the centre is the impressive circular gallery with its cast iron decorative balustrade overlooking the hall below, with a ceiling rose above – again a circle within a square. To the rear of the house is an entirely enclosed walled garden with an English country feel: to the back of the garden, but hidden, is a covered car port and a single-storey lean-to workshop currently an artist’s studio. The workshop has planning permission to be transformed into a two-storey studio space.

Overall, Clifton House is an architecturally rare and interesting property which is charming as it is, but also full of additional potential. It is located near much sought-after Hackney schools, a short walk from Haggerston Station, London Fields park and the fashionable Broadway Market. It would make an ideal family home in a vibrant and cosmopolitan area.
