Located in one of East London’s property hot spots, this lovely and unique family home is on the market for the first time since its renovation a few decades ago.
This former pub was converted into a delightful five-bedroom family home.
Thankfully the smell of stale smoke has long since disappeared and the bar you’ll be propping up is now of the breakfast kind.
Many of the interior features within this beautifully preserved, 3,000 sq ft freehold converted pub are intact, thanks to the sympathetic eye of the current and only residential owners, since being purchased in the 80’s. They really nurtured this warm space, re-injecting it with life.
The largely untouched ground floor area is the feature space, from the worn out grooves in the wooden parquet floor, where many a pint had been sunk, to the saloon windows and huge ceilings which subject the place to a good dose of daylight.
Potted plants and flowers give the beer garden a certain charming “feel” that only a London pub beer can give. Downstairs there is a large bedroom accommodation that is pretty much as it was when the original landlords were in occupancy. Old pubs always deliver on generous bedrooms, each one of the four up here are healthy doubles, all boasting those oversized sash windows.
Should you need any more sq ft, you might want to consider making full use of the enormous loft that spans the entire building. Subject to planning, there’s almost an entire apartment up there on its own!
If you feel like having a secret room, head on down to the subterranean man cave. This former beer cellar is now a wonder to behold, nooks and crannies surrounding a studio area with great head height, perfect for all those projects that need a proper space for you to flex your creative muscles.
The property is located in a very commutable quarter of East London, very convenient for Stratford and close to West Ham and Plaistow Tube stations, DLR, as well as Queen Elizabeth Park. Local shops are just a few minutes on foot.
The property is on the market for £1,000,000 through Unique Property Company
