Property description

Tenure: Freehold

Rich in character is this splendid three storey Georgian home dating back to the 1780’s. Steeped in history, Joseph Spackman, a pewterer from Cornhill in the City of London, obtained in 1771 a lease of 51 years which includes the current 224 Mare Street. Spackman built the terrace, reserving the largest house (1 Spackman’s Buildings now 224 Mare Street) as his own residence which marked the beginning of Hackney Village.

This magnificent house exudes a delightful air of charm and character and has retained many original features including sash and case windows, chunky wooden floorboards, coving, fireplaces and complemented by stunning mantlepieces. Upon entry, you are greeted by a grand entrance with an extensive hallway which sets the tone for this truly unique property. The raised ground floor comprises of a kitchen diner with views over the garden and also has the added benefit of a pantry, laundry room/cloak room and a generously proportioned reception room with dramatic bow-window, which was added in the 1800's. The reception room offers an abundance of light and has an array of fine period features.

Leading up the grand staircase to the first floor the charm continues, as there is there is a wonderfully light dual aspect drawing room to the front; which again offers a wealth of features. Set to the rear is the principal bedroom which provides a wealth of light and features. Overlooking the garden the principle bedroom also benefits from a sleek en-suite.

On the top floor are three additional bedrooms, one of which is currently used as a home office, and a beautiful bathroom with a freestanding bath and a fireplace. The top floor also provides access to the terrace. The property also boasts a pretty walled garden, with mature shrubs and trees, which can be accessed via the entrance hallway and via a side gate.

The property is situated on the corner of Mare Street and Darnley Road. The green open space of London Fields are only 0.3 miles away and Victoria Park is less than one mile away. There are a superb variety of pubs, cafes and boutique shops close at hand and transport links can be found via London Fields Overground, just 0.3 miles away.
