An impressive semi-detached freehold Victorian house in a convenient West Ealing backwater. This natural three storey home has been creatively yet sympathetically renovated, extended and improved by the current owners, retaining much of the original character of the property whilst introducing some modern flair at the rear.
The crowning glory of this house is the striking 29 ft kitchen which has been extended to the side and rear with vaulted ceilings, clerestory windows and a striking cantilevered ceiling reaching out over sliding doors to the garden. The fully fitted designer kitchen has a large central island lit from above by recessed LED lighting, a dining area with exposed brick wall and picture window, and a snug with bespoke joinery. A well proportioned living room at the front of the property has a grand original fireplace, wooden floors and cast-iron radiators. A picture rail, cornices, ceiling rose and sash windows add extra period gravitas to this high-ceilinged room. A large separate utility room provides ample space for storage and laundry, while an additional entrance door via the side passage makes it a practical boot room. The ground floor is completed by a broad entrance hall and guest cloakroom. Outside, the paved rear terrace is well suited to outdoor dining and relaxing, with a low-maintenance shingled area beyond, bordered on two sides by original brick walls. The front garden has been paved to allow off-street parking for two cars.
On the first floor is an indulgent main bedroom suite, with fireplace, dressing area and a luxury bathroom with free-standing bath, separate double shower and double sink. There is also a guest bedroom with en suite bathroom that would work well as a home office. Three double bedrooms and a bathroom are located on the second floor, while the loft provides substantial storage space with potential for future conversion.
Local Area - Hartington Road is located within the Five Roads Home Zone, where a group of friendly residents pioneered a low-traffic, landscaped streetscape over 20 years ago which is going strong today, complete with a community garden and supportive neighbours' network. West Ealing station is close by, with its regular mainline services and forthcoming Elizabeth line Crossrail service from its soon-to-be-opened new station building. The property is well situated for a large Waitrose store and a popular Fuller's pub, the Drayton Court Hotel. In addition to the convenient shops and Post Office on Uxbridge Road, nearby Ealing Broadway has a broad selection of independent and chain shops, restaurants and cafes plus a library and regular markets. The beautiful open spaces of Walpole and Lammas Parks are within easy reach, with Dean Gardens, Drayton Green and Northfield Allotments nearby too. A range of well-regarded primary and secondary schools in the state and independent sector are nearby, including St Benedict's, Notting Hill and Ealing High School GDST and Christ the Saviour CofE Primary School.
