Victorian end of terrace corner house on 3 floors - Bow / Mile End

Our home is a 3 storey Victorian terrace with a tiny South facing yard on a friendly mixed street, in the heart of busy Bow, East London. There`s central heating and double glazing

The house can comfortably accommodate 4 adults

We renovated the whole house prior to moving in a few years ago, including new shower rooms, kitchen, flooring, blinds and lighting

Furnished with a mix of vintage finds and contemporary styling, there`s lots of natural light throughout the house.

In the living room there`s a wood burner for cosy evenings, comfortable furniture and art and objects collected over the years.

The larger dining area is open plan to the living room with seating for 6-8. There`s an additional smaller dining table in the kitchen , comfortably seating 4. This is where we eat most of the time.

Modern fitted kitchen with gas hob and electric oven, dishwasher, microwave, larder cupboard and plenty of storage space.

A door opens from the kitchen onto the tiny yard a little green urban oasis.

The laundry area is in the basement, along with the other double bedroom with it`s own shower room and toilet. The bed is a sofa bed low to the floor and can be made into twin or double bed.

Master bedroom has a kingsize bed, blackout roman blinds and an exposed brick wall with non working fireplace.

There`s an additional loft bed, accessed by a ladder, above the study in the back bedroom, not shown in the photos as it`s hard to photograph.

Upstairs hallway is double height with skylights and an art wall.

Upstairs shower room is accessed down a couple of steps from the master bedroom. It has a shower, toilet and basin with skylight above.

There is no bath in the house, just 2 showers.

The master bedroom is on the corner and faces the street so you will sometimes hear cars and people passing by.

Please note that stairs to the main bedroom and bathroom are fairly steep and both WCs are accessed by stairs up or down.

If mobility is an issue, our house won't be suitable, sorry.
