A rare opportunity to obtain a stunning and award winning three-bedroom, four storey Georgian townhouse nestled on the edge of the City and Old Street. The house overlooks Hoffman Square, which is a 1800's grade II listed former school, and Aske Gardens with public tennis courts.
This house has gone through extensive renovation. Designed and created with the imagination and inspiration of the current owners along with their architects Mikhail Riches.
In 2011, the house won New London Architecture's "Don't Move, Improve" award and was featured in Time Out, The Architect's Journal, Grand Designs magazine and Elle Deco. It also won a Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) award.
Immaculately presented throughout, this house offers amazing versatile living spaces which have been carefully thought out. As you enter through the front door into the hallway you're greeted with an incredible reception room with a mezzanine overlooking the lower ground floor kitchen and dining area and out to the garden. One of the major projects in this house was a double height rear extension, this isn't your run of the mill extension but a huge glass box allowing floods of natural light. Down the bespoke glass balustrade staircase is where some further magic happens, the lower ground floor transforms into the most exquisite kitchen and dining area where the full beauty of the glass box extension can be pictured. With a central kitchen island including a Delphi water system which ionises, filters and sets the desired pH of water, a Neff ceramic hob fitted earlier this year and a Neff oven this truly is the kitchen of dreams. Past the island you'll find a great space to dine and sliding doors leading to the well-maintained garden with a decked seating area and flowerbeds. The garden plants are very low maintenance with an irrigation system installed making looking after them a breeze. Furthermore, there is a useful utility room with a WC. Underfloor heating can be found on the lower ground, ground and first floor.
The first floor of the property consists of either the master or second bedroom at the front of the house, a full size bathroom with a separate bath, oversized glass shower cubicle and a double sized sink. Up to the top floor you'll find two further bedrooms and access to the loft space.
In addition to the glass extension, the living room, bedroom and bathroom windows are fully double-glazed. New windows were fitted in 2019, they're under guarantee and registered with FENSA. They have an A+1 energy rating and conform to BS7950 standard. A Valliant boiler which has been serviced annually is under guarantee until August 2025
