This beautiful Grade ii-listed shop is positioned in the heart of Spitalfields Market on Brushfield Street. For the first time in over two decades, it is offered for sale including a three-bedroom apartment directly above, with a private roof terrace at the rear. Thought to have been built in the 1770s, the shop retains the original signage of a Victorian milliner and represents an incredibly rare opportunity to live and work in one of London’s most popular historic markets.

The street-facing façade of Brushfield Street is characterised by a traditional Victorian shop frontage, with wooden-framed armoured-glass panes, an awning and specially fitted shutters. Above the ground floor, the apartment is formed of traditional red brick with large sash windows, rising up three storeys to a mansard with elevated views over the market and Hawksmoor’s Christ Church at the end of the street.

Access is gained via a shared hallway. The shop occupies the whole of the ground floor and is formed of tongue and groove panelling and original hardwood floors, with characterful repairs carried out over the ages. It currently has an A1 commercial designation. To the rear, an office area has been created with a fireplace containing a cast-iron Victorian stove. There are built-in shelves along one wall and the space is wonderfully bright with views directly out onto Bishops Square. The basement is a large and highly versatile storage space, having served a multitude of purposes over years. It also has a plumbed utility room and a bathroom.

Entrance to the apartment is via a secondary door from the hallway on the ground floor. The first floor is occupied by a bright living room at the front of the plan, with original floorboards, a fireplace, built-in shelving and excellent views over the market below. This space leads through to a dining room with a further fireplace with a Victorian stove, down to a modern kitchen at the rear of the plan.

The second floor has two bedrooms and a bathroom, the rearmost bedroom has an unusual box-bed of an unknown date and generous amounts of storage built into the fabric of the building, believed to be from near the period of construction. The principal bedroom to the front benefits from generous sash glazing and storage space, while the first floor bathroom has a large roll top bath and an original fireplace.

On the second floor, there is a further double bedroom to the front of building and a bathroom with stable doors opening onto a delightful private roof terrace at the rear. This space is perfect for dining outdoors in the warmer months, just a short walk from many of East London’s finest bars, pubs and restaurants.

Spitalfields has been home to a functioning market for over 350 years. Licensed by King Charles I in 1638, the market has since become renowned for its terraces of Huguenot cottages and lively atmosphere. At the turn of the century, cheap studio space and restaurants like St John Bread and Wine, Mark Hix’s Tramshed and the Golden Hart pub attracted the Young British Artists; the area has enjoyed almost unparalleled popularity ever since.

Brushfield Street is in the heart of Spitalfields, opposite the southern perimeter of Spitalfields market and on the northern edge of the Artillery Passage Conservation Area. The building dates from the 1770’s and has an incredibly rich history having been used variously over the centuries as a milliners, a grocer’s warehouse and a series of jewellers offices (the shop retains its reinforced security measures at street level).

The neighbourhood is renowned for its vibrant cultural life. The art galleries at Truman Brewery, Modern Art, Maureen Paley and Raven Row are all within walking distance of the apartment. The restaurants, bars and pubs in Shoreditch rival any neighbourhood in the capital and include the forementioned St John, Lyles, Mãos, Brat and Clove Club, as well as more casual offerings in Brawn and Rochelle Canteen.

The city’s financial district is within walking distance, as are the stations at Liverpool Street, Aldgate East, Aldgate and Shoreditch, offering both Underground, Overground and National Rail services.
