Property description


A rare opportunity to acquire one of the largest Grade ii-listed authentic Georgian Huguenot townhouses in prime Spitalfields.
Built in 1724, this grand single fronted house spans 3612 . And from 1724 to 1885 was occupied mostly by weavers, leather-cutters and silk or velvet manufacturers, the latest of which was James Stillwell and Son, silk manufacturers. James Stillwell is said to have woven the cloth-of-gold for Queen Victoria's Coronation robes and to have furnished some of the hangings for Westminster Abbey. It is said that he was the last of the old-time prosperous master silk weavers and on his death his class became extinct.
The property provides a flexible living arrangement over 6 floors, with 4 bedrooms, 5 reception rooms, one family bathroom, 3 wc's, a store room, a huge basement and a roof terrace. Many of the original features have been retained including the beautiful staircase, open fireplaces, wooden floorboards, sash windows, cornicing, and oak panelling. The house is a fine prospect for those wishing to preserve the important heritage of such a property whilst creating a truly magnificent home.
Situation
Folgate Street is centrally located on the west side of the Spitalfields conservation area and is highly desirable thanks to its close proximity to the City and Shoreditch. Located just off Bishopsgate, it is just 5 minutes walk to Liverpool Street Station (Circle, Metropolitan, Hammersmith & City and Central lines and National Rail). Spitalfields Market and the surrounding area is renowned for its array of superb restaurants, boutique shops, restaurants and vibrant nightlife. The house is also a short walk to both Brick Lane and Shoreditch and all the bars and restaurants that these fashionable areas have to offer. When Crossrail opens at Liverpool Street in 2018, one will have fast and convenient access to London's major airports making this property an exceptional investment for the future.
