Four storeys wide, five bays wide and composed of strong London stock brick, Malplaquet House unfolds over four spacious and atmospheric storeys with curiosities seemingly found around every corner. Restored most recently in consultation with The Spitalfields Historic Buildings Trust, every effort was made to preserve the integrity of its early Georgian domestic architecture and while todays basic amenities such as heat, electricity and double glazing are there to allow liveability, the aura and milieu of the 18th century London feels almost tangible. Other conveniences that have been integrated throughout include box sash windows and shutters, reclaimed cast-iron radiators, tulipwood-mounted dolly switches and six-panel doors. Throughout the home, the lime plaster walls are enriched with thin paints and chalks, hand applied in countless layers by specialist artisans, and aged pine floors lay underfoot. Upon entrance, the main floor comprises two principal 30 ft deep reception rooms on either side of the entrance hall, both with double-aspect windows allowing the rooms to be flooded with light. The lower ground floor, with cool stone flags running underfoot, is home to the kitchen and an additional bedroom which could be utilized as a dining area, and other rooms which can be purposed for storage, pantry, exercise or recreation. The rear garden, which is wonderfully private and neatly contained, can be accessed by doors on both of these floors. The first and second floors open up yet more refined living spaces in addition to bedrooms, and the options for usage are vast. The working, wood burning fireplaces, original panelling and remnants of centuries old wallpaper truly transport one back in time, with the buzz of the Mile End Road practically inaudible due to the recent installation of double glazing by the current owners. A home office, formerly an additional kitchen when the home was a shared dwelling, can be found on the top floor by the distinctive, oversized bathroom complete with two bathtubs creating a space to relax and replenish in the evening, a deux.

Establishing itself as a vibrant area London, Stepney Green and nearby Whitechapel provide a veritable smorgasbord of amenities. Many of the local historic buildings have been sensitively restored in recent years in consultation with Historic England, presenting a multifarious union of the finest late 19th-century commercial architecture. The original Royal London Hospital building and its façade are now being restored for use as the Tower Hamlets new town hall. The green open spaces of Mile End Park, Limehouse Basin, Victoria Park (which provides access to the Regents Canal), Stepney Green Park and Stepney City Farm and Café are just a short walk away.
