If you’re looking for a home that’s unusual – a little dramatic even – then come and have a look at the The Lodge at St Clements. You won’t have seen anything quite like it before. It is a detached Victorian home surrounded by history and beauty.
The Lodge is a refurbished house with two bedrooms, set in a quiet location at the end of Linden Homes’ St Clements development in Bow – yet it’s just a three-minute walk from Mile End tube station.
The house backs on to the atmospheric and beautiful Tower Hamlets Cemetery Park, a nature reserve known as ‘London’s most urban woodland’ which hosts nature walks, foraging expeditions and nature conservation projects.
The park is rich in unusual and varied flora and fauna – it is home to at least twelve different species of butterfly which are attracted by the diverse and beautiful wild flowers and plants.
St Clements itself is a former hospital, which has been given a new lease of life by Linden Homes: New build homes mingle with the beautiful old Victorian buildings that have been restored and converted into beautiful new apartments.
And The Lodge different to everything else on the development: The only refurbished, detached house on the site, this extraordinary home is arranged over two floors and boasts a beautiful, vaulted ceiling.
When you arrive at the house, you walk through the front door into the hall, which leads off to the kitchen and living room to the left, and a bedroom and ensuite bathroom to the right. The kitchen is fully fitted with an oven, hob, extractor fan and fridge/freezer. The spacious living room is bathed in light from a skylight fitted into the roof.
There is access to a private terrace on each end of the house – you can watch the sun come up on one terrace and see it set from the other.
Upstairs there is a second bedroom with a double aspect and its own ensuite bathroom.
Sharon Eldred, sales and marketing director for Linden Homes Eastern, says The Lodge has a unique appeal: “The Victorian Lodge House has a charming gothic feel to it from the outside, while the inside is finished in a clean, modern style with classic features – like the beautiful vaulted ceiling. The location is unusual as the house backs on to The Tower Hamlets cemetery park – which, despite its name is also a very striking and colourful nature reserve and lively conservation area, teeming with wildlife, flowers, trees and unusual plants.”
You can visit St Clements for yourself: the sales and marketing suite on site is open from 10am to 5pm from Monday to Sunday.
