Reminiscent of a much-revered era of house building that is in keeping with the property’s 1899 roots, an elegant first impression is immediately established upon first glance of the home. An easy to maintain space along with off-road parking has been created within the front exterior grounds, which are neatly framed on either side by tall mature hedging. A heritage style front door leads into the entrance hall of the property.
Comprising three floors of living accommodation, the ground floor of the property is a hub for living, dining and entertaining.
Leading off from the entrance hall is a kitchen, family room, reception room, drawing room, study and a downstairs WC. Each of the rooms are not only of a good size but benefit from an abundance of natural light which is provided through a generous use of windows and skylights. Neutral colour schemes are punctuated with original features, creating a sense of charm and character throughout.
A space for quality family time has been established towards the rear of the ground floor within the kitchen which leads directly into the aptly named family room. Within the kitchen, built-in cabinetry spans a cooking range and storage space, along with a separate granite-topped kitchen island. Vaulted ceilings complete with quaint beam flourishes are a statement feature within the space. A set of glazed doors lead into the family room, which benefits from having direct access to the lush exterior rear grounds.
A provincial style staircase leads up to the first floor of the home, where four of the property’s six bedrooms can be found, along with a separate family bathroom. Each of the bedrooms are well proportioned double rooms, offering maximum flexibility for families of all dynamics.
The master suite is a particular highlight of the first floor. The space contains a large ensuite bathroom which features both a shower and a standalone bathtub. Custom cabinetry with double sinks completes the space which as with the rest of the home, has a distinctly contemporary feel without losing its sense of personality.
Unrivalled views of London from the unique advantage point of the landing window are provided from the second floor of the property. The floor is home to two further bedrooms along with a bathroom.
The entire space lends itself well to catering for larger families, though would work equally well as a guest facility, an entertainment hub or a space in which to work from home, depending on the requirements of the new owners.
A lush tropical oasis awaits within the exterior grounds of the property. A patio terrace provides ample room for alfresco dining or entertaining during the summer months. Sandstone paving connects with a lawn area, which is encapsulated by mature hedging, trees, shrubbery and plants.
