TV Victorian House put on the market

Independent estate agent Felicity J Lord has been appointed by its current owners, Mr and Mrs Thomas, to sell the four bedroom terraced house on Elliscombe Road in Charlton, south east London.
The television series, which ran over four episodes, followed the trials and tribulations of the Bowlers, who were selected from over 400 families, to journey back in time and live like the Victorians for three months.
As part of the historical reality show, all modern elements from the 1890's built house were removed including electricity, insulation, indoor toilet, and central heating. Period fixtures such as a copper, a large pot used for heating washing clothes over a fire, cast iron oven and fire places were also installed.
Since the programme finished, Mr and Mrs Thomas have been busy undertaking a transformation of their own, namely bringing the house, which is located on one of Charlton's most sought after roads, right back up to date.
Today, Elliscombe Road, which is only a short walk to Charlton train station, features four double bedrooms, plus a loft conversion as well as two bathrooms, interconnecting reception rooms, dining room and kitchen/diner. Outside is a well established South West facing garden. The former outside toilet, bemoaned by the Bowler family, is now used as a boiler house.
‘We are absolutely thrilled to be selling the home that featured in The 1900 House. I remember watching it every week when it was on television and thinking to myself I am glad I wasn't alive then. Thankfully, the owners have brought the house right back up to date whilst at the same time retaining many of the original Victorian features, and in the process created the ideal home for the 21st century family,’ said Jack Downes, branch partner for Felicity J Lord Blackheath.
50 Elliscombe Road is currently on the market for £550,000 with Felicity J Lord Blackheath.
