Shipton Street, E2
This is city living at its best and that's just the location. A quiet haven in the middle of an area which is continually buzzing... Hoxton and Cambridge Heath are a stones throw from the city yet have a very distinctive feel of their own, independent shops and creativity abound, all wrapped up in street art, the quality of which is stunning, as is the location and specification of this property.
This somewhat cute resplendently light purple painted three bedroom terraced house sits close to the hustle-bustle of the vibrant Columbia Flower Market, yet it is also worlds away in being so quiet and peaceful at the same time, “you can hear a pin drop” says the vendor of this immaculate property.
Set within the Jesus Green conservation area on a beautiful street not only is the exterior of this house is beautiful, your jaw will also drop when you enter too.
The current owner is an Interior Designer who has bought their work home with them, everything is stunning! “It was literally a dump when I first saw it, but I liked the house and saw its potential” They add. Natural light flows throughout enhanced by white walls mixed with pastel shades, the high ceilings. Period features are mixed perfectly with modern touches not only does the house boast 1600 sq ft, the skills shown within the design and layout makes the most of this already generous space.
The reception room plus dining space is perfect for a quiet evening in or for entertaining with access to the south facing patio garden.
The Kitchen is long and perfectly proportioned all the fittings are also immaculate. This leads to a snug study with views of the garden. In fact the views from all the windows are wonderful, this really is urban Victorian London at its most beautiful.
The bathroom is both large and bold, red walls contrast with white fittings, a blue and white floor and the boldest coloured glass window. All the bedrooms are doubles, the top bedroom also has roof lights which simply add to the feeling of calmness, light and space throughout.
Of the area the vendor says “I've lived here for over 30 years, I know most of my neighbours, it's a very friendly area, I especially like the local green spaces, we have an abundance: Jesus Green, Haggerston Park, Ion Square Gardens, Ravenscourt Park, the list goes on...” On local shops they add, “I adore Laxeiro, the renowned family run Spanish restaurant in Columbia Road, the owner Isabelle makes the most amazing paella, it's making my mouth water just thinking about it, the aroma of onion, saffron garlic and seafood fills the restaurant, I've been a fan and loyal customer for over 30 years, Columbia Road also has other great restaurants and coffee shops too”.
They sum up, “I will miss the peace and quiet, my court yard and all of my neighbours, have I mentioned, it's a really friendly place!”
