Story of the Home
A classic Victorian townhouse set over three floors, with south facing garden. The high ceilings and large sash windows make for a peaceful and light filled home.
The house has four generous double bedrooms, a double reception room spanning the whole ground floor with beautiful bay window, two fireplaces, wood flooring and wood panelling.
The main bedroom, with marble fireplace, has original cornicing, and views over St. John at Hackney church yard.
The three remaining bedrooms, all with sash windows, high ceilings and wood flooring. A family bathroom and additional guest WC are located on the first-floor landing.
The ceiling height on the top floor is pleasingly high, and the property also has a large attic and cellar. The original curved wood banister dates to when the house was originally built in 1875.
The sizeable south facing garden includes a fig and Indian bean tree, which gives welcome shade during the summer months. It is accessed through the kitchen at the rear.
Positioned in central Hackney between London Fields and Clapton, this charming four bedroom Victorian townhouse is conveniently positioned in the catchment for some of the area’s best schools.
Millfields community school, St John’s & St James Primary, Mossbourne and Clapton Girls are all within walking distance.
There is a good variety of restaurants and pubs within close proximity, the local pub is The Chesham on Mehetable Road. The local shops on The Narrow Way are just around the corner.
Chatsworth Road has some wonderful independent shops and a popular street market. London Fields with its Lido is 10 minutes away, and the green open spaces of Hackney Marshes and Hackney Downs are within walking distance.
The yearly street party adds to the community spirit and is a special asset to the home. There are also excellent transport links to central London, the city and Stratford International via Hackney Downs & Hackney Central Overground stations.
