Full description

On the market for the first time in over 40 years is this extremely grand and well maintained Victorian house, substantial as well as elegant, retaining many outstanding period features such as original Victorian tiled flooring, high ceilings, coving, wooden shutters and fireplaces, to name but a few. The house has a renowned front garden with an abundance of aromatic herbs plus off-street parking for 2 small cars or one larger family-sized car and a wide and deep rear garden with 2 garden studios/workshops. There is also a substantial self-contained 2 bedroom annex connected to the main house.

Arranged over three floors in addition to a cellar / basement and the 2 bedroom side annex (formerly the garage), what makes this home so unusual and exceptional are its extremely wide lateral footprint and deep back garden, meaning all the principal living rooms, kitchen and 6 double bedrooms are both spacious and naturally bright. The vestibule and landings are exceptionally wide and in more modern properties would be rooms in their own right.

Comprising briefly: mature front garden with garden gate, driveway with gates ensuring off-street parking; on the raised ground floor and pleasingly in the centre of the house is a large welcoming vestibule / hall, leading to a downstairs cloakroom, rear garden room, 2 reception rooms, family kitchen, scullery / larder and utility room, plus a sizeable 2 double bedroom annex with large kitchen-diner and all of which is connected to the main house which could make a perfect granny annex or au pair suite or perfect live-work space. There is also access via stairs to the cellar, presently arranged as further living space with a shower-room and lavatory.

Over the first and second floors are arranged 6 substantial double bedrooms (with many period features), extra wide landings, 3 bath/shower rooms, 5 lavatories, a roof-terrace on the top (second) floor and copious eaves storage areas. The rear of the house has been predominantly double-glazed to ensure warmth in winter.

In the delightful rear garden there are 2 garden studios / workshops with electricity and running water, as well as a pond and pretty views across the gardens of Forest Road.

Enviably located close to the desirable green open space of London Fields, the Lido (outdoor heated swimming pool) and fabulous weekly market of Broadway Market and trendy shops on Wilton Way. Nearby are many supermarkets, cafes, restaurants, gastro-pubs, renowned bakeries and small indie breweries, as well as independent shops, theaters, the Rio and Picture House cinemas.

Moreover, there are a number of 'outstanding' Ofsted rated schools nearby as well as an excellent provision of local transport options with several over-ground stations nearby such as Hackney Central, Dalston Junction / Kingsland and London Fields, with swift and easy access to London Liverpool Street, the City and Stansted airport.
