Located a short walk from Mile End Underground Station in the Ropery Street Conservation area, this elegant one-bedroom Victorian cottage, with private terrace and open-plan living space, has been restored by its architect owners in a sympathetic and contemporary style.

Internal accommodation is arranged over two floors, with entry on the ground floor into a bright hall area. To the left is a downstairs WC and built-in storage, and to the right, an open-plan living space that includes a reception area at one end, and kitchen and dining area at the other. The bedroom and en-suite shower room are positioned on the second floor, accessed by a striking open-tread oak staircase with elegant wrought-iron banisters. A french window opens from the bedroom onto a sunny private garden terrace.

The main living space has restored timber beams, wood panelling and exposed-brickwork walls. The kitchen and dining area have Plain English cabinetry, with a large orangery-style skylight that floods the space with natural light and provides views to the garden terrace above.

The current architect owners have done significant work to restore the original features, which are well balanced with the contemporary fittings that compliment this Victorian build. Most notably, replacement wooden sash windows have been installed complete with shutters and window flower boxes. Brickwork has been exposed and restored on the ground floor and in the bedroom above, and there are hardwood floors throughout.

In addition, the house is sold with planning permission for a second storey, which would provide a second bedroom, en-suite bathroom and external balcony whilst retaining the existing garden terrace.

The property is positioned on a peaceful residential street and is located near Mile End Park, Tower Hamlets Cemetery Park and the Regent’s Canal. Both Roman Road and Victoria Park are a 15-minute walk away. There are plenty of great pubs and restaurants locally, and the popular Genesis art-house cinema is nearby.

Mile End Underground Station (Central, District and Hammersmith & City Lines) is a five-minute walk away.
