5 Bedroom End of Terrace House To Let
This handsome four storey house known originally as 1 Denmark Villas, was built in the 1850’s and completely renovated and extended at the rear in 2015 by the current owners. It is situated on a quiet street, equidistant to London Fields and the North West corner of Victoria Park.
Unusually for the area it comes with an adjoining off street parking space, an 80 foot West facing garden as well as 5 bedrooms, 3.5 bathrooms, a large through reception on the raised ground floor and an L shaped kitchen / dining / snug on the lower ground.
The entrance to the house is at the top of a stoop on the raised ground floor and from the wide hallway, there is access to the through reception to the right and a rear door at the end which takes you out to an elevated, West facing roof terrace and steps down to the garden.
The through reception benefits from a large bay window on the Eastern end which floods the room with light in the morning and an equally impressive window on the western end which benefits from the sun all afternoon. Both rooms feature original fireplaces, cast iron radiators, refurbished floor boards, working shutters, cornicing and ceiling roses. The larger of the two rooms with the bay window currently houses a grand piano.
By way of a water closet on the half landing, upstairs on the first floor are two large double bedrooms and a bathroom. The East facing bedroom has an unusually large feature window, fireplace and cast iron radiator while the West facing bedroom is large enough to accommodate a super king size bed and again features a cast iron radiator and refurbished wooden floor boards.
Past a clever study area on the next half landing under a window overlooking the rear garden, the 2nd floor comprises a generous landing, 2 similarly sized double bedrooms and another bathroom. Both bedrooms house cast iron radiators and refurbished wooden floor boards.
Downstairs on the lower ground floor, at the Eastern end of the house, is a generous room which the current owners use as a gym. It also benefits from a large bay window and offers plenty of light, particularly in the morning. There is an adjoining wetroom and this area could quite easily be reconfigured into a bedroom with ensuite, guest bedroom or could be used as an office or extension to the adjoining reception space.
Within the ground floor rear extension is an impressive L shaped kitchen / dining / snug which features an exposed brick wall along the entire northern elevation of the room. The kitchen was designed and made by DeVol kitchens and the snug area has a working wood burner within the exposed chimney breast. The whole lower ground floor benefits from underfloor heating under a handsome flagstone finish.
Next to the kitchen dining area are a set of tall wooden bi-fold doors which open completely out to the West facing garden. The garden itself has been zoned into three distinct areas – a dining area with bespoke barbeque, hidden seating area and secret garden at the rear which is mostly laid to grass with some raised beds and a greenhouse.
Shore Road itself is extremely well situated for a family, with a supermarket at the end of the road, a health centre opposite and the two best parks in East London within a 5 minute walk of the house. There are half a dozen local primary schools with an Ofsted rating of “Excellent” within walking distance, the renowned private Gatehouse school is also nearby and it is in the catchment area for the Victoria Park Academy.
There are also many good bars and restaurants in the area to name, but Brat, Elliotts and Mare Street Market are within 5 minutes walk towards London Fields, whilst in the other, Victoria Park Village is home to The Empress, My Neighbours the Dumplings and Pophams.
In terms of transport links, London Fields Overground station is a 7 minute walk away and there are numerous bus routes to the City and West End from nearby Mare Street and Well Street. The area is also extremely well served by the cycle and canal network.
