Explore this historic, former Huguenot physicians house in Spitalfields

Own a piece of history.

Located on the incredibly historic Princelet Street, number 24 is a former Huguenot physicians house that has been cleverly designed to have the appearance of traditional 18th century features.

In the 1940s, it was completely refurbished after an intense vibration from a nearby World War II bomb devastated large parts of the property.

When architect Chris Dyson bought the property in 1997 from a leather coat manufacturer, he then completely redesigned the house – completing it in 2011.

The façade of the house was returned to a design of 1725 with timber sash windows and decorative brickwork. Substantial changes were carried out to turn it back into a family home in keeping with the character of Princelet Street.

First impressions of the exterior set the tone, on the ground floor of the house there is a well-appointed, centrally located fitted kitchen with open plan living space to either side.

The rear portion features a lovely glazed extension which overlooks the pretty rear garden.
