Myrdle Street Residence, London, UK
Set within east London’s Myrdle Street conservation area, this property is a wisteria-clad Georgian townhouse which has been exactingly refurbished by the duo behind Hostem design boutique. The house contains an edit of the boutique’s finest art, furniture, books, textiles and objects, all of which have been carefully selected with the original architecture of the building in mind.
Arguably one of the finest historically-preserved houses in east London, the property combines original Georgian features with a refined selection of design-led furniture and finishings. Mid-century pieces, including writing desks, chairs and card tables by Pierre Jeanneret, are offset by signature pieces from contemporary designers including Faye Toogood. Stuart Shave/Modern Art have curated a selection of contemporary artworks throughout the house, from the likes of Tory Thornton, Mark Flood, Richard Tuttle and Paul Lee.
There are original working fireplaces on each of the four floors, and a glass-roofed summer house overlooks a private west-facing garden. Bay windows across the lower, first and second floors also look out onto the garden.
Undisturbed during their stay, guests are offered fresh market produce from nearby Leila’s Shop. A selection of complimentary red and white wine, as well as a comprehensive cellar, have been carefully selected by Primeur restaurant co-founder Jeremie Cometto-Lingenheim. A television is decidedly absent (however wi-fi is available) and a wide selection of recent and classical literature chosen by King’s College philosopher Clayton Littlejohn is waiting to be discovered.
Set across approximately 2,850 square feet, the house has open-plan living areas and accommodation for up to six guests, in three bedrooms.
The first-floor master bedroom has an en-suite and a private dressing room, and a shower room caters for the two large bedrooms (each sleeps two) on the top floor. There is a third additional WC.
The kitchen/dining area is located on the lower ground floor, with the main living space on the ground floor of the property.
The house is located within the Myrdle Street conservation area off Whitechapel Road. It is near to many popular east-London destinations, including the Whitechapel Gallery and Brick Lane (both a ten-minute walk).
Whitechapel and Aldgate stations are both a ten-minute walk from the property, providing easy links to The City and central London (around 20 minutes by train).
