"Each space is a concise concept, with carefully executed use of colour and texture that creates lovely views from one room to another."
This immaculate three-bedroom maisonette sits on the upper floors of an elegant Victorian terrace on Ufton Road in a covetable corner of De Beauvoir. Using a select palette of bold colours and custom cabinetry that elevate the original features and neat proportions of the building, the excellent interiors are a lesson in combining old and new.
The house sits behind a lovingly maintained garden, planted with white hellebores, camelias, hydrangeas, clematises and roses. Entry is from a smart set of steps to the upper ground floor which gives the living spaces a great sense of quiet. To the right is a light-filled double living room, with sash windows fitted with shutters that look over the gardens at either end.
Geometric concrete floor tiles lead through the hallway into the kitchen, fitted with minimal cupboards in midnight blue and white. There is a focus on high quality materials and bespoke elements throughout. The hallway conceals plenty of storage with above head-height bookshelves, and discreet shoe collection storage under the stairs.
There are lovely stripped floorboards and natural wood doors throughout the rest of the house, the warm tones of which contrast wonderfully with white-painted woodwork and ornate cornicing in the hallway.
Upstairs, leading from a landing lit buy a porthole window, are three bedrooms and a pale pink family bathroom that was inspired by a trip to Paris. Each space is a concise concept, with carefully executed use of colour and texture that creates lovely views from one room to another. The master bedroom has dove-grey cabinetry that sits within the classical proportions of the room, and creates a wonderfully serene surrounding.
Ufton Road is a quiet street in De Beauvoir, with plenty of much-loved independent shops, pubs and places to eat including the De Beauvoir Deli for provisions, the N1 Garden Centre for plants and Millenary Works for furniture. At the end of Ufton Road is the 52A Coffee House.
Haggerston station is eight minutes walk away, where the London Overground has connections to Canary Wharf via Canada Water. Regular buses also run to the city and beyond from Kingsland Road. Regent’s canal is also within easy reach, and can be used as a pleasant footpath to the rest of east London, the great Towpath Café, galleries such as Victoria Miro and Parasol Unit and Broadway market. Ufton Road is close to the green spaces of London Fields, Stonebridge Gardens and Shoreditch park.
