Description

Located in arguably one of Hackneys premier addresses is this wonderful, highly sought after Grade II listed family home that has views across the square's gardens. Sir William Middleton commissioned the building of Albion Square in 1844 as Hackney was being developed. Pevsner has described the design of the square as "clearly influenced by the work of the celebrated landscape designer and writer, John Claudius Loudon ". The central garden was saved from demolition and remains an ornamental garden with symmetrical beds, grass and trees and a picturesque garden pavilion. Albion Square is one of London's most attractive squares with grand pairs of semi-detached villas dating from 1846-1849 built around three sides. The houses, built in unique pairs around the square retain the appearance of single large villas with expansive windows and wide, generously proportioned accommodation.

Offering original features and approx. 2,026 sq ft of living space, this property is currently divided into two flats but offers flexibility for any future buyer to reconfigure over time to suit their own style and needs. The upper flat is accessed via the raised ground floor where you will find a breath-taking double reception, currently arranged with a kitchen/dining area to the rear and main reception room to the front. There are spectacular floor to ceiling windows, shutters, and cornicing as well as a utility room and w/c. The first floor has two generous sized double bedrooms and a modern bathroom. The lower ground floor offers a reception room, double bedroom, separate kitchen and bathroom. Both the upper and lower floors have access to the wonderfully mature, 73ft south facing garden, a perfect place to relax in the summer months. Albion Square is well placed for the City, West End or Canary Wharf, all accessible via the Overground Line at Haggerston or the many bus routes of Kingsland Road. London Fields and Broadway Market are nearby, as well as the shops and restaurants of Dalston & De Beauvoir.
