195 Mare Street
Known locally in Hackney as “That House on Mare Street”, number 195 was originally built in 1697 for a merchant from Ghent. Over the centuries it changed its original use as a family home, becoming variously a working men’s club and most recently offices. We are in the process of re-converting this very beautiful 700m2 Grade 2* house back into a family home, with an arts space in the cellar and extensive new gardens. These will include an extensive mural by the Brazilian artist Thiago Mazza. Completion of building works is expected autumn 2024.
