Favourably located within a short walk of London Fields, this Victorian terraced house was converted and extended in 2004 by the architects Form 3, with open-plan spaces suited to loft-style living. The internal accommodation measures approximately 1,453 sq ft over two floors.
The ground floor was lowered slightly to allow for a cohesive single space that runs from front to back and opens seamlessly onto the garden. Arriving in the entrance hall, the visitor steps down into the space. There is a sitting area at the front with a wooden floor, and a wonderfully bright kitchen at the rear with underfloor heating, a long pitched rooflight and glazed sliding doors to the outside. To one side is a wet room with a rain shower, set behind glass bricks.
The garden is partly paved, with a gazebo for shelter. It is lushly planted with mature bamboo, a tree fern, and palm, olive and fig trees.
The first floor is also largely open-plan. At the top of the staircase is a second reception room or bedroom, with steps up to a terrace that gets the afternoon sun and has views along the adjacent gardens. There is a study area in the centre of the plan, with fantastic high ceilings, and a bedroom at the front separated by a big storage unit. A fish tank divides off the bathroom, which has an extra deep bath.
Wilton Way is situated within a short walk of the cafés, bars and restaurants on Broadway Market and the open spaces of London Fields. Dalston Junction station, which forms part of the East London line extension, provides routes into Highbury & Islington and Liverpool Street.
