An exquisite Victorian 'Lion' house, thoughtfully extended and creatively enhanced for luxurious modern-day living.
Accommodation - The ground floor's original warren of small rooms have been combined to create a split level living area over 50 ft long. The upper section hosts the formal living and dining zones, while the lower section, with skylights and sliding doors to the garden, is home to the kitchen and informal living area.
The formal living and dining area has wooden flooring and a modern fireplace with a bold, copper-clad chimney breast. A glass balustrade and a change in level denotes a shift from formal to informal as the room continues towards the garden. The fully fitted kitchen has a rose gold glass splashback and a wealth of high-specification integrated appliances. The sink is moulded into a single piece of Corian worktop, directly opposite the induction hob set into the central island unit.
Cantilevered oak treads appear to float on the staircase, while high-tensile steel cables, glass balustrades and an exposed brick wall provide structure and safety. On the lower ground floor a separate cinema room, which would work equally well as a playroom, has an adjacent patio, wine cellar, laundry room and convenient cloakroom.
Indulgently occupying the entire first floor, the sumptuous main bedroom suite features a bedroom, dressing room and en suite bathroom. The bedroom stretches the full width of the house and features sash windows, a grand period-style fireplace and a fitted window seat. Sliding doors conceal the large dressing room with its floor to ceiling bespoke fitted storage. A short flight of steps leads to the sleek and calming bathroom, which has a free-standing bath, a walk-in rainfall shower and a double sink unit with fitted storage.
The large second floor landing provides a versatile space for a study, playroom or additional living area, from which two double bedrooms are reached. One has exposed ceiling rafters, fitted wardrobes and an en suite bathroom, while the other has a fitted cupboard and use of the adjacent shower room.
Outside - The front garden has a raised bed for shrubs, and a period style tiled pathway the front door. The private rear garden is framed by a combination of contemporary timber slat fencing and the original brick rear boundary wall. Low and high beds of established shrubs and palm trees form a perimeter around the paved garden, with integrated seating to one side and a solid timber table fitted to the other. An outdoor shower and concealed storage complete the rear garden.
Local Area - Bovingdon Road is located close to Fulham Broadway with its Underground station, shops, cafes and restaurants, and there is even more choice on both Fulham Road and King's Road nearby. Open spaces in the area include Eel Brook Common, Brompton Cemetery and the Thames Path. There are numerous local bus services, and the Overground network is served by Imperial Wharf and West Brompton stations. Motorists can use the nearby A4 and the South Circular Road to travel into, out of and around the capital. Families have a wealth of local schools to choose from in the independent and state sectors for children of all ages.
