It might look old from the outside, but the inside of this 18th century townhouse in Spitalfields, London E1 is perhaps not as you would expect.
Available to rent now now, this classic Georgian townhouse has been to restored, but not strictly to the original period throughout the 3,300+ sq. ft. of living space.
Yes, many of the original features have been renovated and reused, not least with the original wood panelling. But that’s mixed with a modern finish for the rooms and some modern twists – concealed speakers for surround sound all over the house, a hidden dumb waiter behind the panelling and remote control black out blinds for example.
That’s nothing compared to the basement though, which you access via a glass balustrade. Down there, you’ll find a glass retractable roof and a ‘living wall’ of plant life. Certain to impress your friends and acquaintances if you have a gathering.
In terms of accommodation and above the basement, you’ll find a large high-spec kitchen, walk-in utility, a lounge, dining area and tow further reception rooms. Upstairs are four large double bedrooms, all with en-suite, as well as a ‘concealed’ Vivienne Westwood design walk-in shower and separate WC. The top floor has a dual-aspect master bedroom with walk-in wardrobe, luxury bathroom and a private roof terrace with views of the city.
