Meticulously restored in 2006, this Grade-II listed, 2/3 double-bedroom mid-terrace Georgian townhouse with romantic walled garden and large separate home-office/studio forms part of a very rare listed Regency terrace of just eight houses from around 1812. Carefully and sympathetically renovated, this unique, charming house is in a part of London rich in heritage and diverse culture, while being an easy walk from the City, and minutes from the major transport hub of Whitechapel.
Offering 1264 sqft (117 sqm) approx over four floors, the house is packed with character and original features, from wood panelling and timber floors to fine fireplaces and original doors. Old and new blend seamlessly whilst the practical layout makes it easy to live in.
The light-filled lower ground floor is wood-panelled throughout. It features a large open kitchen/dining room complete with reclaimed, antique terracotta tiles and underfloor heating, stainless steel units and a double-oven range cooker. It leads out via French doors to the lovely private walled garden ending at a self-contained outhouse. This brick and pantiled studio with glazed timber doors also benefits from underfloor heating and its own shower room. Peaceful, with views out to the leafy garden, it is a perfect home office, creative studio, or guest suite.
The house itself offers a pleasing wood-floored hall with Regency pilasters, the original staircase with mahogany bannister, and original dado panelling. The raised ground floor comprises a dual-aspect living space with twin fireplaces boasting original Georgian grates and a pretty bow extending at the back from which a large sash window looks over the garden. The upper floors feature two well-sized double bedrooms, both with restored panelling and built in storage, plus timber shutters to the bedroom. A beautiful, very large and light main bathroom is finished with a marble lined shower/bath and fireplace.
Walden Street is within the sought after Myrdle Street Conservation Area close to the Royal London Hospital. There are plentiful local shops and supermarkets, but the house is also a stroll from all the amenities of historic Spitalfields. This is an area of London’s East End that over the years has seen vast regeneration and investment. Superb transport connections are nearby and convenient. Whitechapel station is a five-minute walk away, with services on the District, Hammersmith & City and Overground lines. From later 2021, the Elizabeth line (Crossrail) speeds from Whitechapel Station to Bond Street in 10 minutes, Canary Wharf in 4 minutes and Heathrow in just over half an hour.
