Description

This exceptionally bright and spacious drawing room flat offers comfortable and contemporary living space within a converted Victorian house. The property was converted by AMA in 2000 and successfully combines modern fittings and fixtures with traditional period features, including ornate cornicing and working shutters. Occupying the first floor, the property is entered via a shared door and stair and the door opens to a warm and welcoming hallway, from which the rooms radiate.

The well proportioned bay windowed drawing room is wonderfully bright, with both south and west facing aspects. Retaining its detailed cornice work, another excellent feature of the room is the fireplace with a gas fuelled fire. Also facing south, and next to the drawing room, lies the luxury dining kitchen. Again retaining its ornate cornicing, it is a well structured, generous room with stylish units and granite work tops and also benefits from dual aspect windows.

The west facing principal bedroom lies to the rear of the property, and is a generous room with excellent built-in storage. The large en suite bath and shower room lies off the master bedroom in a modern extension to the building. The guest bedroom is beautifully presented, and offers further storage with built in wardrobes and a large window seat in the bay window. The third bedroom is next to this, and both are serviced by the main shower room. Completing the accommodation is a study, which is perfect for those working from home.

Externally, there is a garden, shared with one other flat. To the side of the property a gated sweep leads to the garage with an electrically operated door.
