Property description

This beautiful early seventeenth century Georgian townhouse was originally built by Joseph Truman between 1705 and 1706 and is one of Spitalfields, certainly Princelet Street's, largest single fronted Huguenot houses. As you'd expect, the property is full of period features including mostly original wood floorboards and oak panels but at the same time has been renovated with incredible modern finishes. Across the 4,520 sq ft (approx) is an exceptional blend of design features and period architecture further to the complete refurbishment the property underwent between 2002 and 2004. In recent years the house has undergone a stunning change in decor with a exceptionally bright and light stylish finish throughout.
The existing layout consists of a 65 ft long entertaining space on the lower ground floor, with extended ceiling height and sound proofing along with original reclaimed Victorian school parquet flooring. This comes with its own reception/study, two working fireplaces, laundry room, a whole wall of bespoke built in shelving, three under stair cupboards with cleverly designed bespoke storage, a large bathroom with twin shower and access to a well-lit patio garden with spiral stairs leading to the upper garden On the ground floor is a beautiful open plan fully fitted kitchen, which opens to the dining room and also houses a fireplace with wood burning stove. Then at the rear of the house is a stunning extended 'loft' conservatory with vaulted glass atrium and full length glass doors opening onto the walled rear garden - few houses in Spitalfields have this much open space to live, work or play in. Another reception room is spread over the first floor, one of which has a wood burner, and this floor connects what would have been two separate rooms, again offering a real open plan feel. The second floor has the large master bedroom with two fitted wardrobes offering plenty of storage and the main separate bathroom including cast iron bath is next door. Finally the top floor has a very large double bedroom with two original cupboards cleverly fitted with bespoke shelving and wardrobe space to maximise storage, a large built in wardrobe along one wall alongside access to loft storage and there is a second double bedroom with discreet W/C.
There is an abundance of Georgian character on every floor. You'll find original floorboards, oak panelling, stripped back ceilings, working shutters and gorgeous cast iron open fireplaces throughout.
Princelet Street is centrally located in the Spitalfields conservation area and is highly desirable thanks to its proximity to the City, Shoreditch and local transport connections of Liverpool Street. The abundance of boutiques, fashion outlets, bars and restaurants on offer in Brick Lane, Shoreditch and Redchurch St are all on the doorstep and only a 5 minute walk away.
