A broad Edwardian semi-detached house that effortlessly blends period character with modern style, located in a quiet, elevated West Ealing street of similar properties.
The original kitchen, dining room and sitting room have been opened up to create a fantastic 28 ft living space with wooden flooring. Sash windows to the front and rear and glazed doors to the kitchen allow natural light to flood the room, which has two grand fireplaces, dado and picture rails, cornices and ceiling roses. The kitchen is located at the rear of the house in a recent extension, and features fully fitted units, integrated appliances, a central island and wooden flooring. The striking vaulted ceiling with skylights becomes fully glazed over the dining area, which has bifold doors to the garden. The entrance hall has an understairs storage cupboard and a guest cloakroom.
On the first floor are two double bedrooms, both with fireplaces, and a single bedroom with fitted cupboard. The large landing could serve as a quiet reading area or a space to work from home. The first floor bedrooms are served by a bathroom with whirlpool spa bath. A large double bedroom with Juliet balcony, fitted wardrobe, eaves storage and en suite shower room is in the converted loft space.
The front garden is framed by an established, well-maintained box hedge, and creeping plant perfectly frames the original sash windows. The house retains its Edwardian wood-framed porch and hung tiles in the gable.
The West-facing rear garden is paved and bordered by raised beds with mature palm trees. A door at the back of the garden leads to a garage accessed via Cavendish Avenue.
