About this property

  • Constructed in 1726, and in many ways the finest house on Fournier Street, this luxurious five-storey house is an outstanding example of early Georgian design and craftsmanship. The house has recently undergone a full restoration, introducing modern-day comforts such as app-controlled underfloor heating, air-conditioning in the principal bedroom, and high speed Wi-Fi. Much care was taken to retain the sense of the building's long history, character and charm, the success of which was recognised in the house achieving 2018's RICS Building Conservation Award.

    Upon entering the house, the entrance hall leads to a grand oak staircase and walled garden to the rear. The hall is flanked by a cloakroom with WC to the left, and a sitting room to the right, with an interconnecting large dining room that's perfect for entertaining.

    The house has a large eat-in kitchen on the lower ground floor, with a 6-ring Boffi gas hob and an electric cooker, as well as an electric three-oven Aga. It also has two dishwashers, a large Sub-Zero fridge freezer and a large pantry with built in wine fridge. Off the kitchen is a lightwell with access to a large under-pavement wine cellar. There is also a WC.

    The first-floor front room is the largest and finest room in the house, standing at 26 feet wide and 14 feet deep, with four large windows overlooking Fournier Street. This space can be enlarged by opening up the folding doors to the office, creating one huge L-shaped room.

    The second floor provides flexible accommodation, currently arranged as a large bedroom with adjoining ensuite, and a separate dressing room that could be used as an additional bedroom if desired.

    Upon reaching the third floor you are greeted with an eye-catching mural, painted by one of the previous owners of the house. There is a further family bathroom suite with shower, and an exceptionally large principal bedroom with fabulous views of The City to the rear.

    The large and peaceful garden – 40 feet long and 35 feet wide – was designed by Miria Harris, and was recently featured in House & Garden magazine. It is full of well-established plants including a mature mulberry tree and countless roses and peonies, which have been planted to ensure visual interest from early spring to late autumn. On both sides of the garden there are high walls covered with flowering jasmine, giving the garden a wonderful aroma on summer evenings. A gardener will be included within the rent to look after the garden on a regular basis.

One of the finest homes in Spitalfields to ever be made available to rent.

Local information

  • Fournier Street contains some of the finest examples of Georgian domestic architecture. It was always intended to offer housing that was a cut above the standard of the immediate area and, as a consequence, the properties were bought by master silk-weavers and silk mercers. The highly glazed lofts betray the fact that the upper floor was used for weaving, where the best natural light was to be had.
  • Perhaps one of the finest houses is number 14, which was built by a "master carpenter and gentleman”, William Taylor, in 1726. It was here, in the top floor room, that the silk for Queen Victoria's coronation gown was woven.
  • Fournier Street is situated between Commercial Street and Brick Lane. The immediate area offers an eclectic mix of boutiques and independent shops with a fantastic choice of bars and restaurants, all within easy reach. There is an array of wonderful street art within the immediate area, which makes the neighbourhood unique in its own right. Being on the cusp of The City, Fournier Street has easy access to the heart of the financial district.
  • Liverpool Street Station is situated within 0.3 miles and is serviced by the Metropolitan, Circle, Central and District lines, along with the Stansted Express and Elizabeth Line. (All distances and times are approximate).
