Located in arguably one of Hackneys premier addresses is this 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.
Laid out over 2000 sq./ft. of accommodation with period features galore such as ceiling mouldings, wood shutters, sash windows, high skirting boards and a beautiful fireplace in the main reception. The property is accessed via the raised ground; here you will find the main reception overlooking the Square, a large bedroom to the rear which overlooks the south facing garden, study, cloakroom and steps down to the garden. The lower ground is a fantastic space for entertaining family and friends with a large kitchen and separate living/family room. There is a double bedroom with an en-suite shower room making for a great guest or teenagers room. The upper floor house's the three main bedrooms and the family bathroom. The property also benefits from a 75ft south facing rear garden and a large garage adjacent to the house - a complete rarity - with side access.
Albion Square is without doubt a most sought after address in London Fields combining splendid architecture with outstanding family accommodation within the catchment area of Queensbridge Primary School.
Albion Square offers various transport links in to the City, West End or Canary Wharf via the London Overground Line at Haggerston or the many bus routes of Kingsland Road.
