Georgian renaissance in Whitechapel

Filed under: Latest News — Four Communications @ 11:35 am

The meticulous restoration of Gloucester House, an exquisite late 18th century Georgian townhouse in New Road, London E1, captures the zeitgeist around the renaissance of Whitechapel. The house has been imbued with new life and spirit by one of the acknowledged experts in restoration of houses of this period and the house has featured in magazines such as Country Life, The World of Interiors and, most recently, in a newly published book ‘The Romantic English Home’.

The architecture reflects the new wealth of its original owners when it was built in 1797, often referred to as water money, as result of the expansion of the London Docks. A wealthy sea captain, Richard Redman, owned No 33 New Road, which looked out over open fields. Eventually, the house was owned by a linen merchant and, as  Whitechapel’s prosperity declined and became dominated by the rag trade, the house became a shop.

The house was bought by the present owners in 2000 and work began on restoring the Georgian interior.  Evidence of the original layout of the house was uncovered, along with the original wide board Baltic pine floors and the stone floor on the lower ground floor.  Lost architectural details, such as cornicing and chair rails, were recreated and existing panelling was copied to restore the main rooms to their former splendour.

Gloucester House has a lower ground floor, a raised ground floor and two upper floors, with four bedrooms but with the opportunity of creating a fifth bedroom on the second floor. On the lower ground floor, the dining room has a door leading to the garden.  There is also a conservatory linked to a summerhouse in the garden.  The restoration of the kitchen has captured great period atmosphere.  There is a pantry and plumbing for the essentials of 21st century living, such as washing machine, dryer and deep freeze, all discreetly hidden away. Most of the rooms have fireplaces, many of which were reinstated as part of the restoration.  All the upper floors have good ceiling heights. The front of the house is clad in wisteria and there is a secluded courtyard garden at the rear, with clipped box hedging and evergreen shrubs and creepers.

The Grade II listed house stands within the Myrdle Street Conservation Area, a short distance from Whitechapel underground station and within half a mile of Aldgate East underground, and just over a mile to Bank.


Gloucester House is now for sale, guide price £1.5 million. For more information, contact Dawn Carritt on

Jackson-Stops & Staff, the national estate agents, with 43 offices across England, has won the coveted award of Best UK Estate Agency Website of the Year for 2011-2012.

The award, part of the UK Property Awards sponsored by Google & Bloomberg, and recognised by all of the industry professional bodies, sets an industry standard for property related businesses.

The prestigious black tie event took place at the Lancaster Hotel in London, and was attended by more than 400 people involved in the property industry, including national and regional estate agents, surveyors, architects, and interior designers. The evening began with a Champagne reception and dinner, culminating in the awards ceremony.

The UK Property Awards were announced by Jennie Bond, journalist and BBC former Royal Correspondent and presented by representatives from Google.

Colin Hughes, partner of Jackson-Stops & Staff, Dorking, (centre left) and David Parris, group operations director of Jackson-Stops & Staff, London, (centre right) went on stage to receive the award.

Colin Hughes comments: “It was very exciting to hear the winner being announced and invited to the stage to receive this highly regarded award.  We work very hard to improve our website continually and it is an honour to be judged to be the best in the UK. “

David Parris added:  “Since it is recognised that the vast majority of purchasers or tenants start their search on line, it was particularly important for the website to be accessible and user friendly.

“Jackson-Stops & Staff was one of the first agencies to have a dedicated mobile site and, amongst its various innovations, has bespoke apps for the iphone as well as Android products. Our clients directly benefit from this technology to promote their properties to the widest possible buying audience both in the UK and worldwide.

A coastal treasure

Filed under: Latest News — Four Communications @ 3:35 pm

Corisande Manor, currently on the market with Jackson-Stops & Staff, Truro, allows the owner to live on the stunning north Cornish coast whilst providing a great business opportunity to run as a hotel.

Arranged over four floors, the property has nine en-suite bedrooms and large reception areas, including a grand sitting room with balcony access and a dining room with exposed beams. The outdoor space is also impressive, with level lawns for grass tennis courts and a pavilion style building with planning consent for conversion into additional bedroom accommodation.

Corisande Manor, with its landscaped grounds, has stunning views over the Gannel, which can be admired from a balcony that stretches the entire width of the house. Most of the bedrooms also have views over the water.

The property is only a mile and a half from Newquay town centre. Newquay offers both train and rail links to London and the South West as well as an airport with regular flights to London, Gatwick.
