Palmerston Place is a particularly fine Victorian townhouse set over four principal floors, offering bright, spacious and flexible accommodation with magnificent period detail throughout. Facing both east and west, the property enjoys plenty of natural light throughout the day, further enhanced by the spectacular cupola crowning the impressive stairwell. The property benefits from elegant and generous proportions throughout with superb family living spaces over the ground and first floors, complemented by spacious bedrooms on the first, second and lower ground floors.

The house caters perfectly for modern family living with a range of high specification contemporary fixtures and fittings, while still retaining much of its original charm which exudes through distinct period features. The original cornicing and plasterwork are of particular note and are breathtakingly impressive, while there are magnificent marble mantelpieces, working shutters, astragal windows and wrought iron balustrades and mahogany banister which adorn the impressive stone stair.

The front door opens to a grand vestibule and on to spacious and welcoming reception hall from where the ground floor accommodation is accessed, and the stair both rises to the upper floors and descends to the lower ground floor. The elegant dining room is situated to the front of the property looking out to St Mary's Cathedral, and is linked to the kitchen by a well-equipped Butler's pantry. The kitchen is located to the rear of the house and is beautifully appointed, with a generous island and breakfast bar in the centre of the room. Also on this level are the cloakroom and guest WC, while the large utility room is set on the lower mezzanine level.

The stair rises to bedroom four situated on the upper mezzanine level, and continues to the first floor where the drawing room is situated. This is an exceptional room spanning the full width of the house, with a bay window and second window offering a spectacular view of St Mary's Cathedral and its gardens. Bedroom three is also on this level, as well as a bathroom and an additional storage cupboard.

The stair continues to a study on the upper mezzanine level, and finishes at second floor level where the generously-sized principal bedroom suite is located. It has stunning views of the Cathedral and benefits from a luxurious en suite bath and shower room off, as well as a walk-in wardrobe. There is an additional wardrobe on this level, as well as bedroom two with a west facing aspect. It has an en-suite with shower as well as a further room off it, which could be a further study, dressing room or additional bedroom if required.

At lower ground floor level there is a self-contained, but fully integral, main door flat which has provided a significant income through short-term lets. It can be accessed internally and via its own front door from the large front basement courtyard. There are also three dry-lined under-pavement cellars offering additional storage.

The apartment features a superb sitting room with bay window to the front, as well as a further bedroom serviced by a separate shower room, while to the rear there is another large bedroom facing on to the garden which has an en suite bath and shower room.
