This unique 3/4 bedroom, neo Georgian freehold townhouse on Princelet Street has the look and feel of a traditional period property but is in fact unlike any other in central Spitalfields rebuilt by renowned, award winning architect Chris Dyson. The attention to detail both internally and externally is an outstanding example of replicating old to new with the flexibility of having open plan living without Grade II listing constraints inside.
Spread over 5 floors the house features many recreated and reclaimed Georgian features including floors, fireplaces, wall panelling and large light bearing sash windows (double glazed). The current owners have extended the internal space to the rear and creatively remodelled the house with the kitchen, dining and reception area on the ground floor as the hub of the house with access to the walled rear courtyard garden painted by fine artist and muralist Ian Harper. The lower floor is a full separate suite currently used for guests with kitchenette, sitting room, double bedroom with open nickel plated bath tub, large shower room and gym complete with walled glass rear and feature wall.
The classic double reception room on the first floor has a working log burning fireplace and is cleverly panelled concealing extensive storage/TV with tall glass doors leading to a pleasant balcony. There are two generous double bedrooms on the first floor with separate shower room, and the double height top floor provides many alternatives such as a grand lateral master bedroom complete with custom made, built in wardrobes and a concealed bathroom with separate toilet. The space could equally be used as a large home office as it has the most stunning and magical views over the historical rooftops towards the spire of Hawksmoor’s famous Christ church, Spitalfields and beyond to London’s more recent skyline of the Gherkin, Shard and mix of other new additions to the City.
Located just off Brick Lane in the centre of Spitalfields on Princelet Street, Shoreditch and The City are just a 5 minute walk away. Transport connections are excellent with Shoreditch High Street Overground Station and Liverpool Street Station close by with the new cross rail connection at Liverpool St finishing soon.
