Description

Laid out over circa 2000sqft is this rare to the market semi detached family house. 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 house has period features throughout such as ceiling mouldings, wood shutters, sash windows, high skirting boards and a beautiful fireplace in the main reception as well as others. The property is accessed via the raised ground; here you will find the main reception overlooking the Square, a large reception/bedroom to the rear which overlooks the well manicured garden, 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 separate utility room just off the kitchen along with a shower room with separate WC. The top floor is where you will find three double bedrooms and the family bathroom. The house benefits from fantastic storage throughout. To the rear of the property is a beautiful private rear garden which has covered side access.
