How would you like to live on Fashion Street, one of the most sought-after drags in the vibrant neighborhood of Spitalfields? And in a converted Victorian townhouse, no less? This posh 3,000-square-foot three-bedroom was recently revamped for modern living by London-based design consultancy Brinkworth, and it’s quite something.

Though it looks unassuming from the street and retains its storefront facade from its commercial past, its interiors tell another story. A living room and reception area laid with polished concrete and paneled in Iroko wood make up the ground floor. Next are an open kitchen and dining area, with access to a bright and gorgeous garden gallery steps below, and further access to the terraced garden outside. Next are two children’s rooms boasting a "cockpit" window with views to the garden, then the double-height master suite taking up the floor above that. A wrought-iron spiral staircases lead to the mezzanine bathroom.

Patterned wallpaper, subtle colors, bespoke built-ins, and antique details like stone steps and burnished railings bring this impressive but cozy home to life. The property includes a basement and an office space. It can be yours for a cool £2,950,000, or $3,893,000.
