For Sale: Rare Georgian Huguenot Townhouse in Prime Spitalfields

A rare, Grade II-listed Georgian Huguenot townhouse dating back to the early 18th century is currently on the market in the Spitalfields Conservation Area

Built in 1724, the grand, single-fronted terraced house on Folgate Street E1 provides a flexible living arrangement over six floors, with four bedrooms, five reception rooms and a roof terrace, as well as one family bathroom, three WCs, a store room and a huge cellar.

Believed to be one of the largest Grade II-listed Georgian Huguenot townhouses in prime Spitalfields, the property was occupied mainly by weavers, leather-cutters and velvet manufacturers.

The latest of these occupants was silk manufacturers James Stillwell & Son, from 1724 to 1885. James Stillwell is said to have woven the cloth-of-gold for Queen Victoria’s Coronation robes and to have furnished some of the hangings for Westminster Abbey.

The Folgate Street property retains a lot of original features, including wooden floorboards, sash windows, cornicing, oak panelling, the staircase and open fireplaces.
