On the increasingly fashionable Shoreditch High Street - home to Ace Hotel, House of Hackney, Present and some great restaurants, is this incredible four storey Georgian freehold house, fondly known as 'Time For Tea' extending close to 2400sqft.
Having been lovingly preserved by the current owner, the house retains all the original features and layout of its prior years.
With a host of previous uses - a former bank, clock-makers and pawn shop, it offers an insight into historical Shoreditch life.
With the opportunity to further extend/enhance - subject to the usual planning consents, it could make the perfect home from which to live and work.
The ground floor was previously used as a shop and would suit a buyer looking for a gallery/exhibition space.
The upper parts have a separate access via a side alley and can be entirely self-contained if desired.
Beautiful wood panelling, original fireplaces and deco bathrooms, it is really a museum in itself and a perfect alternative to a Spitalfields house given that it is not a listed building.
The upper floor of the house is almost magical, with vaulted wood ceilings, exposed brickwork and sash windows front and back. It feels a world away from the bustle of Shoreditch High Street.
A perfect home for someone looking for something that is unique in period detail, yet has the flexibility to change depending on personal needs.
Shoreditch High Street is one of the most talked about streets currently, home to an increasing number of boutique clothing shops, the recently opened design hotel - Ace and some fabulous restaurants and coffee shops.
It is a short walk from Shoreditch House and Redchurch Street and less than 5 minutes from Shoreditch Overground station which provides fast links to Canada Water.
