THISTLE LONDON, E5

about

Thistle is a large 3 bedroom, 3 bathroom location property in London set over 2,250ft with a lush garden, architect designed and refurbished in 2020. A late Victorian property, it has been completely reimagined over 5 levels linked by a contemporary black staircase. The house marries modern design with period features – several of the rooms have beautiful cornicing and fireplaces and bay windows with leaded glass. A void running from the top of the house to the bottom ensures light floods the house.

Main access to the house is up black and white tiled steps through a large front door into a hallway with high ceilings, cornicing and black painted floors. On this floor there is a large living space with a huge working marble fireplace, bay window and bespoke black bookshelves lined with douglas fir which wrap around the double height void. To the rear on this floor is a black, shaker style kitchen, with marble worktops, butler sinks, a large freestanding island lit with holophane pendants, bentwood stools, a double pantry and a large range cooker. The kitchen opens out onto a lush garden, which has a large outdoor lounge area lit by festoon lights and starry encaustic tiles.

From the kitchen, steps take you down to the lower ground floor opening onto a double height dining space. There is a cosy den which the owners use as a cinema room. This floor also has a downstairs loo, utility room with large butler sink and secondary access through the basement door.

On the half landing is a bedroom, painted dark grey with a black Victorian fireplace. There is also a study space.

On the first floor the main bedroom features polished plaster walls, an original Victorian fireplace and a bright en-suite bathroom with green and white encaustic tiles. There is also another study space with a Mid Century modern wall unit.

On the next half landing is the main bathroom with an enormous freestanding bath, fireplace, terrazzo tiles and Crittal style panels.

The top floor is accessed up stairs with built in bookshelves opening onto a landing with a hanging chair and huge Velux window. Directly ahead is another large bathroom with freestanding bath. The large loft style bedroom has exposed brickwork, Douglas fir lined ceiling, dramatic floor to ceiling window with built in window seat and bookshelves.
