A large double upper set within a handsome semi-detached villa.
This is an extensively refurbished and re-modelled four bedroom flat spread across the first and second floors of a Victorian period house. The flat is entered at ground floor level via a smart, modern vestibule. To the front of the house is an established, well-kept front garden with off-street parking for several cars. A single garage is located to the side of the property. Tranquil views over neighbouring gardens and beyond can be enjoyed from all rear rooms; the house itself backs onto the Union Canal which forms part of a national cycle route and offers a very green way to access the city centre. The current owners have completely renovated the flat with the help and guidance of Colin Wong; an award winning and inspirational designer. The kitchen and bathrooms were all designed and installed by Colin Wong himself and feature top quality fixtures and fittings. The tiles throughout are all high quality porcelain and the carpet fitted on the stairs and within the sitting room, bedroom four/ study and bedroom two are by Zoffany Boutique; a luxury, custom order. All of the rooms have been given wonderful personality and it is clear a great deal of attention has gone into the decoration. In addition to the impressive finish, the flat has also been re-wired and fitted with a new boiler. The walls and roof have had foam insulation applied and the Sash and Case windows were all hand-crafted by TJ Ross, including the skylight over the staircase. The combination of the finish, location and impressive, period proportions make this a highly appealing property for many. Key features: •
