*Video and VR tours available on request...* Rubicon are proud to present this remarkable cottage; like a cosy country home in the city, situated on Flamborough Walk, the south-east corner of York Square. With 96sqm (1033sqft) of floor space spread over two floors and an abundance of natural charm, this cottage will make a lovely family home.
Flamborough Walk consists of a handful of 19th Century homes all benefiting from charming front gardens. This three double bedroom cottage, arranged over two floors, with character apparent throughout. The charming separate kitchen is quirky with a range cooker, views onto the square and the private internal patio. Currently used as a potter’s studio, the courtyard would make a beautiful winter garden or an alternative dining experience in the summer – benefiting from midday sun. The two receptions rooms are at the front of the cottage beautifully decorated Victorian cornice and original wood flooring; south facing with views of the garden. The first floor houses the three bedrooms all with equally unique and interesting features. The back bedroom benefits from views on the square and a skylight inviting lots of natural light. The master bedroom and the additional guest room both look on to the garden and walkway below. Additionally, the family bathroom has a separate W.C. and a custom cast iron bath. Notes from the vendor: “Flamborough Walk is an extraordinary surprise. It’s a little bit of rus in urbe, a sliver of the countryside transplanted to a quintessential London setting, and Hawthorn Cottage sits at its entrance with the demeanor of a Regency cottage in a Suffolk village. The blackbirds may have to sing a little louder than country ones, but the DLR and the Fridge Extension (aka Tesco) are literally around the corner. The Walk is also a rare survival of a bit of East End history, as it was probably built for the managers of Limehouse Basin, which had a big trade in transshipment of coal from the Whitby colliers (in which Captain James Cook learnt his trade) to the canal boats, and the local place names reflect the Yorkshire origins of the coat – York, Flamborough and Durham.”
