East London Property of the Week

Overlooking Millfields Park, at the northern end of Chatsworth Road, sits a row of smart but unassuming Victorian houses. Behind one of the doors however, all is not as it first appears. This particular house has been split in two and the garden flat is rather unique.

A number of reclaimed and recycled materials have been incorporated to create unique storage solutions and innovative design features including; wardrobes and drawers made from reclaimed wood and wine boxes, with exposed copper piping used to form curtain rails and conceal cabling.

The master bedroom is situated at the front of the house and is interconnected with the second bedroom by beautifully ornate Indian wood doors. The rooms can be opened up to provide one large suite or closed off into two separate rooms.

The open plan living space encompasses a bespoke kitchen with a traditional butler’s sink and range cooker, and has been opened up with floor to ceiling doors to provide access to the large private garden with both a lawn and decked area. The bathroom has been extended and modernised to provide a modern twist on its Victorian roots.

Occupying an enviable location opposite Millfields Park with the River Lea and Hackney Marshes, just beyond with the cosmopolitan mix of independent shops, bars, restaurants of Chatsworth Road and Brooksby’s Walk just moments away. The property also sits in the catchment area for a number of good schools including Rushmore Primary School, Millfields Community School and Baden-Powell School.

This two-bedroom maisonette is for sale through EastHaus at £699,000
