A stylish maisonette over three floors in a Georgian townhouse next to Royal Victoria Park.
This immaculate garden maisonette is arranged over three floors and has entrances both at the front and rear of the property. At the front, the door opens onto a communal hall, with mailboxes for each of the six apartments in the building, and a door to the apartment at the foot of the stairs. From the rear, there's a private entrance via an attractive courtyard and into a hall with stone-clad stairs leading both up and down. Stairs up are to a light, modern bedroom with fitted wardrobes, fireplace and window with views onto the courtyard garden below. There's a stylish en suite with a wet room, clever lighting and a mosaic tiled floor. Downstairs, the living room has a central fireplace, window with courtyard views, pale wooden floorboards and ceiling spotlights; it's a lovely light room. Also on this floor, there's an occasional bedroom/study (it does not have a window) and a shower room. Down just a few stairs, there's another level with a hall area and door into a small garden room/study. Here, there are glass doors onto a wooden decked patio, extending the room outside – a great space in the warmer months. Down again to the basement, there's a utility area and a slick kitchen/dining room with large stone tiled flooring, granite worktops, an induction hob, two ovens and a built-in fridge freezer. The window in this room has a window seat and looks onto the lower patio at the rear. There's plenty of storage here and in various understairs cupboards throughout this stylish apartment, as well as communal storage in the lower basement and vaults for recycling, rubbish and bikes, etc. (this can be accessed both internally and from the front of the house). All communal areas have recently been refurbished and a new fire alarm system installed. Gardens and Grounds: The rear courtyard garden is accessed via the apartment's private gate, along the side of rear garages. It has raised flowerbeds with a fig tree and climbers trained along trellises along one wall, while the other walls have planters and fencing to create a relaxing and private outside space with room for seating and other outdoor furniture. There's a mix of paving and stones on the ground and another raised bed formed from wooden 'sleepers' that edge the railing to the patio on the floor below. The patio at the basement level (accessed from double glass doors and overlooked from the kitchen window) is decked and is the perfect size for a few pots and bistro-style chairs.
