This well-considered three-bedroom house lies on Rushmore Road, excellently located on the quiet residential streets of Lower Clapton. The current owners have retained the Victorian proportions of the house, re-working each room with a craft-inspired aesthetic to create a series of serene light-filled spaces.
On the ground floor is a double reception room with a bay window at the front and a pair of smart marble fireplaces. There are lovely worn floorboards throughout as well as cast-iron radiators that are firmly in keeping with the pared-back aesthetic. The proportions of the house are slightly larger than are often found in houses of this period.
The kitchen and dining room open to the garden at the rear, through a set of wood-framed French doors. Marble worktops and a butler sink sit atop cabinetry that was handmade by a Devonshire carpenter. This part of the house is an oasis of calm in central London.
The south-facing garden extends to 44ft, and has a patio, a lawn, and a secondary seating area. The current owners currently have planning permission in place for a loft conversion withe a terrace and singly-storey rear extension to a design by YoungIn architects that is included in the sale.
On the first floor there are two double bedrooms, the larger of which has smart cabinetry either side of the fireplace, and a third bedroom or study. The large bathroom has both a bath and a walk-in shower, with elegant white tiling and fittings by Barber Wilsons.
Lower Clapton is an increasingly popular area, with a lively selection of independent shops, cafes and restaurants nearby such as My Neighbours The Dumplings, P Franco, Peg and Les Nenettes, and specialist food suppliers l’epicerie and Organico. There is an excellent Sunday market and a number of good pubs in the area such as The Elderfield, Adam & Eve and The Spread Eagle, London’s first vegan pub.
Local Millfields park, the canal and the marshes are all a five-minute walk away and a fantastic escape amidst the urban setting. The canal path leads to the Olympic Park.
A short walk to the west, across Hackney’s Mare Street, are the green spaces of London Fields. There are many fantastic restaurants locally, notably Lardo on Richmond Road, the recently opened Angelina’s on Dalston Lane, and Pidgin and Violet on Wilton Way. Weekly markets also take place at Victoria Park and Well Street, and Broadway Market has a reputation for some excellent places to eat and drink, and hosts a food market on Saturdays. The E5 Bakehouse, on the edge of London Fields, is excellent for freshly baked artisan bread and grains.
Lower Clapton is a wonderful area for families with some excellent schools, including Rushmore Primary (Ofsted Good), Millfields Primary (Ofsted Good) and Clapton School for Girls (Outstanding). The house sits within the catchment area for Rushmore Primary school.
