Built between 1815 to 1821 this beautiful thatched property was extended during the Victorian period and this part of the property is slated. It is a semi detached house and is grade two listed.
This grade two listed property is full of character with plenty of features too. It offers spacious accommodation throughout and would make a lovely family home. The property offers room for improvement for some of the rooms, allowing you to put your own stamp on it.
A shared driveway brings you to the property with parking for three cars and a large garage with bi folding wooden doors.
Three steps lead down to the wooden and glazed front door which opens into the porch. The porch has tiled flooring and space for shoe storage. A further door opens into the large dining room.
The dining room is bright and airy with two large sash windows and solid oak flooring. There are doors to the lounge and side hallway.
The lounge is very impressive and has been tastefully decorated, it also has a slate flag stone floor. For the colder evenings it has a feature working fireplace. On top of this is a large, beautiful gothic bay window with leaded glass and working wooden shutters.
A second door opens into the rear hallway. This gives you access to the study/home office, the oval room and the cellar.
The study/home office is quirky with one curved wall and a gothic window with wooden shutters.
The oval room is perhaps the most impressive of all the rooms and not just because of its shape. It is full of character and even has a feature fireplace with a working fire, this is below an amazing gothic, stained glass window, again with wooden shutters. The chimney is angled to the left under the window allowing this incredible focal point in the room. Just as impressive are the beautiful stained glass French doors also with wooden shutters. These open out onto the veranda with cobbled flooring and give access to the rear garden.
The side hallway has a tiled floor and houses the boiler, there is plenty of space for coat storage and a useful storage cupboard for shoes. There is access from here to the kitchen, downstairs bathroom and through a wooden glazed door to the rear garden.
The kitchen has an impressive slate flag stone floor, and a range of wall and floor units with contrasting worktops giving you plenty of workspace and storage. In addition to this is a useful pantry and a good size island with further storage and worktop space, this can also be used as a breakfast bar. Included is a range cooker, ideal for the larger families, and there is space for an upright fridge freezer and space and plumbing for a dishwasher. There are also two small roof windows and a window to the side allowing in plenty of natural light.
The utility room has a stainless steel sink, space and plumbing for a washing machine, space for extra freezers or fridges and two built in storage cupboards. There is a possibility of extending this room into the adjacent storage room in the garage. This would be dependant structural checks and change of use permission.
The down stairs bathroom comprises; corner bath with shower over, low level w.c a vanity basin and a frosted window.
Carpeted stairs rise to the first floor landing, where a roof window lets in natural light. There are doors to three of the four bedrooms, a storage room and and a hallway leading to the fourth bedroom and bathroom.
The principal bedroom is very large and located above the oval room. It also has curved walls and lots of character. A beautiful gothic window with leaded glass draws your attention as soon as you enter the room. A working fireplace and dark wooden flooring adds even more character to the room.
Bedroom two is a large carpeted double room also with a gothic window and feature working fireplace.
Bedroom three is a slightly smaller double again with a working fireplace, feature gothic window and a second door opening into the hallway nearer to the bathroom.
A large and useful storage room with built in cupboards gives you ample space for all your storage needs.
Along the hallway and down a small staircase, you will find the family bathroom and bedroom four.
Bedroom four is a carpeted double with a sash window overlooking the rear garden. The fireplace in this room is decorative only.
The family bathroom is a large room offering both a bath and separate shower. The bath is a double ended bath with tiled walls. The shower is a modern tower shower with various power jets, great for easing those aching muscles and has the same stylish tiles as the bath. To complement this is a pedestal basin, a low level w.c. and the all important airing cupboard.
There is also a good size cellar with three rooms and electrics. The first room is ideal as a playroom or craft room and has a door to the outside near the conservatory. The second room is currently used as a workshop and the third room was originally the Cider store and would now be ideal as a wine cellar with useful storage in place.
We bought this house 20 years ago because we fell in love with the amazing design and fantastic history. The house was originally a vicarage, and it was designed by the vicar’s wife and based on a house in London which no longer exists.
We love the large rooms and it have been a great place for our family to grow up. The cellar can be used for a variety of uses. It has been a playroom/den, a home gym, a workshop and storage.
Our neighbours are lovely often bring around cakes, produce and plants
Ideal for access to the A380 but far enough away that we are not disturbed by the traffic. We are close to schools, pubs, shops etc but tucked away in an out of the way location. There are plenty of walks nearby and Hackney Marshes nature reserve is short stroll.
The oval room has been used as both a home cinema and a retreat from the family lounge. It opens out into the large enclosed garden, which we love, and we have spent many hours enjoying both it and the patio area for parties and family bar-b-ques.
