This townhouse or High House – as the Brits call them, is around 300 years old!
This Grade II* listed house has many of the original features from when it was built in 1734. That’s when George II was King of Great Britain!
This veritable time capsule is for sale for the first time in 35 years and its current owners have done a remarkable job of preserving the home.
The listing photographer also did an exceptional job of capturing the essence of the home. Each photo is a stunning still-life composition.
This five-bedroom townhouse is one of four “High Houses” built when the neighborhood of Stoke Newington was a “smart village where quite rich people had their houses,” according to the homeowner, who has lived in the home since the mid-1980s.
The timeless decor and antique pieces make one feel as though they are stepping back in time.
Even the kitchen has a bit of an old-world feel to it, despite having some upgrades:
It is simple but perfectly charming.
The house also has a rather large bathroom:
A youthful soul could do cartwheels in there!
Fireplaces and wood paneling dating from 1734 have a “slightly anarchic” feel typical of early Georgian architecture, according to the listing.
Despite being in a time warp, the home is certainly well kept and tidy.
The garden, on the other hand, seems a bit overgrown and unruly.
But perhaps that is by design.
The current owners first bought the home for £160,000 over three decades ago. But property values have gone up a bit since then in London.
They are now selling it for £2.9 million!
