3 bedroom terraced house for saleFournier Street, London, E1
Nestled among the Georgian terraces of one of Spitalfields most sought-after streets is the modest façade of this exemplary three-bedroom, five-storey townhouse. The site was bombed during the Second World War and rebuilt in the 1950s to a design by renowned architect Richard Seifert.
In 2012, Mackenzie Wheeler architects completed an extensive repair and refurbishment of the house, with the addition of a contemporary roof extension and large private roof terrace, maximising the residential potential of the space within to create a stylish modern home.
In the words of the architects:
‘The internal fit-out was carried out in the style of the era with teak flooring, teak veneered panelling, black metal framing and cast wired glass balustrading, reusing elements of the original interior that survived earlier alterations. Concrete window surrounds were reinstated and a new precast concrete porch fitted to the original street elevation to recreate a distinguished 1950’s frontage of a quality that fits well within this historic 18th century street.’
The house is entered on the ground floor. An entrance hall leads left to an open kitchen with a central island and teak parquet flooring arranged in a herringbone pattern. Steps descend to a sunken open-plan living and dining area, while the continued ceiling level creates a space of impressive volume, bathed in light from a central roof lantern and four roof-lights overhead.
A stunning timber staircase rises against aforementioned teak veneered panelling a second reception on the first floor. Teak flooring mirrors that of the ground level and the open layout is divided into a large study area, and seating areas by the slim gas fire, and looking out through glazed sliding doors onto the private terrazzo-paved terrace with views of the city, and Christ’s Church Spitalfields to the west. The rear of the building is clad in a warm red cedar, interrupted by large concentrations of glazing framed in anthracite grey.
On the second and third floors are two expansive bedrooms, both en suite and with bespoke built-in wardrobes. The third-floor bedroom has access to a flat-roof balcony overlooking Fournier Street.
The lower-ground level has a further double-bedroom with cork flooring and integrated storage, a utility room, and separate shower room.
Fournier Street is one of the most highly coveted streets in Spitalfields, within walking distance of the City. The shops, galleries and restaurants of Shoreditch, and the markets of Spitalfields, Brick Lane and Columbia Road, are all within easy reach. The stations of Liverpool Street (Circle, Metropolitan, Central lines and National Rail), Aldgate East (District and Hammersmith & City lines) and Shoreditch High Street (Overground) are a short walk away.
