An imposing semi-detached Victorian freehold house in a rare cul-de-sac setting near Chiswick High Road. Sensitively restored, upgraded and extended by the current owners, the substantial property also has several characterful original features from the Arts and Crafts movement, including multi-pane windows, hung tiles and fitted cupboards.
The grand formal living room has high ceilings, dado and picture rails, and a cast-iron fireplace with marble surround. Lit by tall sash windows, this well-proportioned room has wooden floors and fitted storage. The dining room is a similar size, also with a smart fireplace and wooden flooring, and has multi-paned wooden doors leading to the informal family room at the rear of the house, complete with glazed roof and French windows to the garden. Accessed from the main hallway and also from the family room, the modern kitchen with breakfast area is fully fitted with integrated appliances and a peninsula. The breakfast area features display shelving and additional fitted storage. A guest cloakroom completes the ground floor, whilst a cellar with access from the main hallway provides useful space for storage or potential future conversion, subject to the usual permissions.
The first floor is home to two large double bedrooms, both with fitted wardrobes. The main bedroom has an en suite bathroom with two sinks, a double shower and a freestanding bath, while the other bedroom is served by a separate shower room. On the mezzanine between the first and second floors is a third bedroom, ideal for use as a home office, and on the second floor are two further double bedrooms, both with original storage cupboards, and a bathroom.
The front garden features a period-style tiled path, a charming tree and a gravelled area with room for bike storage. At the rear, a raised terrace leads from the family room into the paved garden area which is bordered by raised beds and benefits from an open outlook with no properties overlooking it.
