Built in 1885, this outstanding and elegant Victorian family home is a capacious 3,456 sq ft/ 321 sq m approximately, with a front garden and wrought-iron swing gates and private off-street parking, and is arranged over five floors offering a growing family a sublime home of immense charm and character coupled with exemplary contemporary design.

Opulently refurbished to the highest standards and currently arranged with either seven (7) spacious double bedrooms and four (4) luxurious bath / shower rooms plus two additional guest cloak rooms, or as five (5) double bedrooms on the upper floors, plus a self-contained separate flat in the basement.

The basement forms an integral part of the house and offers total versatility as either 2 additional spacious double bedrooms plus a large utility room or, as currently set up today, it also offers a wholly self-contained flat, with its own private entrance, hallway with bicycle storage / wine cellar, second modern kitchen with access to the rear garden, sleek modern shower room, separate living room and a large double bedroom. As a self-contained unit the basement, today, could generate income of circa £22,000 pa or be used as an artist's studio, consulting rooms or spacious home-office.

The current owners have carefully and sympathetically refurbished this 'grande old dame' using master craftsmen including restoring the beautiful intricate ceiling roses and cornicing in the main reception rooms and hallway, fully rewiring the house, vintage Victorian radiators, under-floor heating, additional sound-proofing, improved thermal insulation, some new double-glazed sash windows, relined chimneys and in the family-sized bathrooms they have effortlessly blended luxury contemporary fittings with marble splash-backs and double washbasins set on decorative wrought-iron legs.

Formerly owned by the writer and campaigner Morris Beckman who was instrumental in fighting twentieth century extremism and wrote about the house in 'The Hackney Crucible' (1996), the house is enviably located a short walk from Hackney Downs, Hackney Central and Dalston Kingsland overground stations, as well as within the catchment areas of several outstanding primary and secondary schools, including the Mossbourne Academy.
