Situated on a charming, cobbled street and enjoying direct views of the Thames, is this fine and deceptively large and bright Grade II Listed Georgian home, dating back to 1809.
It is thought that No. 7 Coldharbour was built in 1809 by Richard Gibbs, a local shipwright, in the Palladian style. The house was designed to be seen from the river, with the river façade having two windows per floor, with rooms on the street side lit by large, single windows.The house spans in excess of 2,000 square feet over five floors with the largest reception rooms overlooking the river. The accommodation is flexible, and the morning sun floods into the house through the large rear sash windows.The house features a wealth of internal period charm to include the original chimneypieces, folding window shutters, panelled doors, architraves, and dado rails to name but a few. The early resinous pine floorboards have thankfully also survived. The chimneypieces and door architraves are carved with reeded moulding, presenting the fashionable Regency style of the late Georgian period.The sweeping dog-leg staircase is illuminated by a skylight on the top floor; a popular detail as natural light was an important consideration in Georgian houses. The staircase retains its original carved mahogany handrail and stair treads - an unusual feature for a property of this date. It has been suggested that the tropical timber may have been available due to the proximity of the docks.The window sills and garden steps on the riverside are of Portland Stone, a sign of quality. When built, the house would have been accessible from the river or from the street.The house is entered at street level with a welcoming view directly through towards the river Thames. On this floor is a large bathroom to the front and generous dining room to the rear.The lower ground floor features a kitchen, which leads up to the garden, with the original inglenook fireplace. There is also a very useful and spacious storeroom with new boiler.At first floor level, the house offers the main reception with remarkable river views. Opposite is a versatile room which would work well as a study or fourth bedroom.The upper two floors offer three bedrooms and large bathroom, incorporating a free-standing roll top bath.The large river-facing garden can be accessed via the kitchen or from the dining room at street level and is the perfect place to entertain.The house is available on a freehold, chain-free basis and the current owners have recently redecorated in sympathetic, period colours. The house offers the potential for a prospective buyer to improve or possibly relocate the kitchen and bathroom suites, subject to the usual permissions.
Coldharbour is steeped in history and is tucked away in a quiet location with a varied choice of transport links close by, with a choice of both the Blackwall DLR , South Quay DLR. There is also the newly opened Elizabeth Line and Canary Wharf Jubilee Line (0.6mi), giving access to Bond Street in 30 mins.The renowned riverside public house 'The Gun' is a very short stroll away at number 27 Coldharbour, with a host of restaurants including Gaucho, Hawksmoor, Roka, Plateau and Dishoom all within (0.6mi). Local amenities inc both Cineworld in West India Quay (0.7mi), and Everyman Canary Wharf in Crossrail Place (0.6mi), whilst a number of gyms including PureGym Canary Wharf, ThirdSpace & Hybrid Fitness are located across the Canary Wharf Estate. Ofsted 'outstanding' schools within a 1mile radius include Bright Horizons, Bygrove Primary, and Canary Wharf College.
