A charming 3 bedroom Victorian end of terrace house of a unique design on a larger than normal plot resulting in more substantial accommodation and a generous sized garden.

From the front, the house appears the same as its neighbours, however the plot is wider at the rear, which impacts on the main part of the house affecting the shape and size of every room. Please see the plan and watch the video to best understand this.

You will see that in addition to the garden, this creates larger rooms in the through lounge and master bedroom, this extra width has also enabled a first floor internal shower room, without compromising bedroom two.

The Potential, is exceptional as there is more room in the rear garden enabling a future side kitchen extension that can be a different shape, design and of greater dimensions. There are already bifold doors in the side elevation of the kitchen into the garden which at approximately 1,600 Sq Ft is around 3 times larger than normal. A mansard roof extension would also benefit from the larger plan again providing different design opportunities subject to the necessary consents.

The accommodation

With a gross internal area of 1,659 Sq Ft, this Victorian house has retained a lot of its original character and some features, as well as the modern conveniences of double glazing, gas central heating a modern kitchen and bathrooms.

The arched porch protects an ornate front door part glazed with a window above, providing good natural light in the hallway which has exposed floorboards and cornicing, an original staircase with access beneath to a large cellar of 409 Sq Ft.

The through lounge has a bay window with shutters at the front, there are fireplaces and ceiling cornicing and exposed floorboards, The rear of the lounge is 14 feet 3 inches wide with a large sash window overlooking the rear garden.

The kitchen diner has a handless fitted applianced kitchen with Silestone worktops, Amtico flooring, there is a window on the side elevation as well as bifold doors into the generous sized side walled garden, with decking.

Next is a lobby with a back door into the rear garden opposite a pantry style storage cupboard. The utility room / WC has fitted storage units, sink and worktops, plumbed for washing machine and tumble dryer. There is a 2-year-old Valiant boiler for the heating and hot water.

Stairs to the first floor landing, with exposed floorboards, the family bathroom has white suite with a shower over the bath and a window to the side elevation.

Bedroom 3, is a smaller double room, with bifold doors onto a private rear facing roof terrace of 91 Sq Ft, which is something of a sun trap and overlooks the rear garden.

There are 4 further steps up to the top landing, a shower room / wet room finished widely in Pebble Stone.

Bedroom 2 is a rear facing double room with a window overlooking the rear garden.

The master bedroom is an impressive room with 4 sash windows to the front, exposed floorboards, fireplace, ceiling cornicing and a ceiling fan.

The rear garden can be accessed from the kitchen bifold doors or the back door, being 30 feet wide at the rear and a total of 1,628 Sq Ft, it has raised beds some mature plants including a grape vine, brick garden walls, a shed with power and Astro turf so ideal for dog lovers and sun worshipers and those with green fingers.

Disclosure

Our vendors have disclosed to us that on the 18th February 2022 (Storm Eunice) as the attached house had scaffolding erected as they are having a mansard roof extension built, the scaffolding over sailed this house, in the extremely high winds the scaffold acted as a sail which created some structural damage to the top of the front elevation of both houses. The neighbours building contractor Brygola along with a number of professionals were notified and consulted, including structural engineers and surveyors. Brygola has now completed a comprehensive repair to the structural damage to both houses.

This repair would be an advantage to any future owner hoping to add a mansard roof extension, as the front wall has been rebuilt to modern standards and is now tied into the neighbours party wall and the flank wall far more strongly than the original Victorian brickwork.

The mansard roof extension being built next door should be completed by the end of August 2022.

Additionally, some damp has been identified on the flank wall, steps are being taken to remedy it.

The location

Lyal Road is in the Medway conservation area, a sheltered series of well-preserved Victorian Streets with a wonderful sense of community, including Chisenhale Gallery and Dance and Zealand Café which serves great coffee and food and both Chisenhale and Olga Primary Schools. Roman Road has a variety of independent shops, Cafes and restaurants alongside a traditional street market, 3 days a week, established in 1888 it continues to thrive as an East London tradition.

Victoria Park has been awarded the Green Flag People’s Choice Award for the eighth year in a row and is the only London park to win an award.

The Pavilion Café overlooking Victoria Park boating lake is 6 minutes’ walk, the park has been loved locally for generations, with lots of open green space. Victoria Park Village is just the other side of the park with its highly regarded variety of shops, pubs and restaurants.

Liveable Streets Bow is a £5million project being delivered by Tower Hamlets Council and TFL in consultation with The Roman Road Trust. Now in the final phase of consultation, they propose various measures to reduce traffic in Bow, including making Roman Road pedestrianised from 10am to 4.30pm every day, while also widening pavements, planting trees and creating more public space.

Mile End and Bow Road stations (Central Line, District and Hammersmith & City) are a short walk away to the South.
