Overall Description

This substantial property is one of an impressive row of Victorian townhouses - now a designated Conservation Area - built in the 1860s to accommodate middle class workers commuting to the City following the extension of the Northern Railway to Broad Street. The house retains a great deal of its original character and charm having not been altered for decades and so offers a rare opportunity for buyers to fully restore this magnificent home to its former glory. Along with the 10'1 high ceilings and well proportioned rooms there are many period features still intact from the front doorway with its Ionic pilasters and ornate plaster door cases, to the grand turned staircase with mahogany hand-rail, the original marble open fireplaces and the sash windows with shutters still in place. The house is spread over four floors with four bedrooms and a bathroom on the top two and four receptions and a kitchen on the lower two but offers buyers plenty of scope to put on their own stamp whether as a large family home or as two or more flats, subject to the usual consents. Outside there is a large 90 foot south-facing garden, currently overgrown but with great scope to make a lovely family entertaining space, as others have along the street. Early viewing is highly recommended and we have keys so will do this to suit you. There is a buyer incentive available on this property - please ask for details!

Location

This large period property sits down a quiet crescent in Dalston yet is just a short walk from Kingsland High Street with its famous Ridley Road market and excellent array of restaurants and bars. It is an ideal location for commuters as it is around a five minute walk from Dalston Kingsland station (two stops from Highbury & Islington) and six or seven minutes from both Hackney Downs (Liverpool Street in c.6-11 minutes) and Dalston Junction (to Clapham Junction, Croydon, New Cross). There's no mistaking Dalston as a lively community on the rise, thanks to the arrival of the East London Line and its role as one of the 2012 Olympic host boroughs. The Guardian newspaper claimed Dalston as the 'coolest place to live in Britain', and Kingsland Road positively heaves with independent shops and high-street names, on-trend eateries and bars. Possibly one of the cooler spots to head to is just over the road from Dalston Junction station: the old train station, now Dalston Eastern Curve Garden, is a garden oasis where you can green your fingers or just enjoy a beer or coffee. Nearby schools include the Colvestone Primary School, The Teddy Bear School House Nursery and the Mossbourne Parkside Academy.
