Bishops Way House, Cambridge Heath

The subject of an immaculate re-design by award-winning architect Carl Turner, this wonderfully individual terraced house has three bedrooms, a small courtyard garden and two roof terraces. The building forms part of a characterful terrace, formerly shops, with large windows to the street. Inside, the ground floor living room is open plan, with a reception area at the front and kitchen / dining room at the back. A glazed door opens on to the first of three small outside spaces. The joinery in the living space, and throughout the house, is exemplary and a key feature of the interior design whilst the first floor, accessed by a ply-clad staircase, has two bedrooms and a shower room. The smaller of the two bedrooms is a versatile space with an over-sized sliding door that opens the room to the landing to create a larger communal area. A glazed door opens to a second terrace, where there is space for a table and chairs. Moving to the top of the house, it is occupied by a single room, currently configured as an office / studio, with built-in desks and plenty of storage. A glazed sliding door allows light to fill the room and opens to the largest of the three terraces, a decked area with zinc-clad sides and planted with bamboo.

Well positioned between London Fields and the green spaces of Victoria Park, the Regent’s Canal path is under a minutes’ walk away, for easy access to the popular Broadway Market and Islington beyond. The house is also a short walk from the independent shops and cafes of Columbia Road, which hosts its remarkable flower market on Sundays. There are a number of excellent restaurants locally, including The Marksman, Bistrotheque and The Laughing Heart and both the famous streets of Shoreditch and Spitalfields are within striking distance.
