About this property

  • 6/1 Learmonth Terrace is a particularly fine ground and garden portion of an impressive Victorian townhouse. The property is generously proportioned and beautifully presented throughout having been extensively modernised over recent years by the current owners. It enjoys south and north aspects with both bow and bay windows. The property benefits from an abundance of natural light throughout the day. There are many delightful period features including impressive plaster work, solid timber stair, a marble mantelpiece and parquet flooring in the drawing room. This property offers spacious, comfortable and flexible accommodation which has been successfully modernised to cater perfectly for family living.

    From the shared communal hall, the front door opens to an unusually broad and welcoming reception hall from where there is access to the elegant bow ended drawing room as well as the beautifully appointed dining kitchen and sitting room. The kitchen has hand-built solid oak units with an Everhot range cooker and an integrated TV in the island. There is a bay window with a charming outlook over the rear garden. A secondary set of stairs rises to a mezzanine bedroom, while there is a study or fifth bedroom on the lower mezzanine level.

    The principal stair leads down to the lower level where the remaining bedrooms are situated. The principal bedroom is wonderfully spacious and benefits from a large dressing area as well as a luxurious en suite shower room. There are two further generous double bedrooms on this level. One of these has an en suite bathroom while the other has a study/nursery off. In addition there is a home office with a door leading to the garden, a further family bathroom, a utility room and excellent storage space.

    Externally, there is a basement to the front of the property with access to the lower ground floor and under pavement cellars which have been dry-lined. At the rear of the property there is a delightful walled garden which has been planted with a variety of colourful shrubs in the borders around the lawn. The paving and terrace to the front and rear of the property have been recently replaced also. There is direct access to 2 single garages, which open onto Learmonth Terrace Lane.

This is quite simply one of the best ground and garden flats I have seen, and having sold it to the current owners, I know how much care and attention has been put into its exceptional finish. The addition of two garages makes this really special.
