Description

One of the largest single fronted Grade II listed Georgian Huguenot townhouses in Spitalfields. Built in 1724, this relatively untouched and unmodernised grand house spans 3,612 sq ft (approx) and is a classic example of these historic homes. Situated on the famous cobbled Folgate Street in the heart of the City of London, neighbours include the Dan Severs Museum and Batty Langley Hotel.


This rare and preserved Georgian house provides flexible living arrangement over 6 floors, with 5/6 bedrooms, 2 reception rooms, dining room, 3 bathrooms, 3 WC's, a store room, a huge basement and 2 roof terraces. Many of the original features have been retained including the beautiful staircase, working open fireplaces, 17th century oak panelling, wooden floorboards, sash windows and untouched cornicing in parts of the house. Unlike many single fronted Georgian houses in the area, the width and scale is immediately apparent from the large entrance and hallway, with dual aspect North and South facing sash windows on every level. 


This piece of history is a great opportunity for an incoming purchaser wanting to refurbish yet preserve the important heritage of Spitalfields whilst creating a truly magnificent home in the heart of the City.


Folgate Street is centrally located on the west side of the Spitalfields conservation area next to the picturesque Elder Street and is on the doorstep to the City, Shoreditch and Brick Lane. Situated just off Bishopsgate, the house is less than 5 minutes walk to Liverpool Street Station with Shoreditch High Street Overground around the corner. Spitalfields Market and the surrounding area is renowned for its huge selection of restaurants, boutique shops, pubs and nightlife.
