About the property

Fine & Country are pleased to offer to the market a unique property that spans just under 2000 Sq. ft. and offers potentially three bedrooms, once an old East End pub called The Earl Grey. It was later owned by philanthropist Mary Hughes who turned it into The Dewdrop Inn (for Education and Joy), a refuge for poor and needy women, in recognition of which a notable blue plaque adorns the house, confirmation of the propertys intriguing history in addition to its perfect location.

Spread over four levels, the property is quite literally one of a kind and can only be described as a true epitome of an East London style and finish. In recent years the home of an artist, the house currently sports a vibrant colour scheme, and has an intriguing spiral staircase, which eventually leads up to the flat roof of the property. It further comprises a dining room, a kitchen large enough to eat in, two reception rooms, two bathrooms, WC, shower room, and a pleasant roof terrace.

Within a 0.3 mile walk from a selection of transport links, including Whitechapel Station (District, Hammersmith & City Line, London Overground and, from late 2018, the brand new Elizabeth Line); Bethnal Green Station (London Overground) and several bus links direct to the City, Stratford and Canary Wharf. The new owner is also within a mere stones throw from a wide selection of amenities: coffee shops, fashion boutiques, restaurants, gastro pubs and particularly the world famous Brick Lane, as well as Spitalfields and Columbia Road Markets.
