    Beautiful two bedroom Georgian conversion on Highbury New Park

    About this property

    • The excellent two bedroom apartment is set in a detached Georgian villa built backing onto the peaceful leafy Aberdeen Park conservation area. The adjacent servants' quarters building has since been modernised, creating an architecturally versatile semi-detached building.

      Set back from the oak lined canopy road and behind a traditional white stone column wall, the house sits amongst a mature garden, with laurel bushes and a variety of well-maintained shrubbery. The house is built from yellow brick set in a Flemish bond, with smart dressings of red brick, stucco and stone. It also has a Welsh slate roof, typical for London townhouses of the period.

      Original Georgian features carry on throughout the property with steps leading from the garden to a round-arched main entrance complete with original Georgian double door and glass panel above.

      The property benefits from easterly facing bedrooms, in which morning sunlight washes in through grand round-headed sash windows. In contrast, the westerly facing reception room and kitchen enjoys generous sunlight throughout the day and subline sunset skies against the Aberdeen Park conservation area. This balance allows for comfortable temperatures during colder months yet remains cool in the summer months.

      The master bedroom features 10 feet of fitted wardrobing, allowing for plentiful storage space whilst maintaining a clean panelled finish. The second bedroom also features built in wardrobing and a folder-down double bed, ideal for intertwining between a study and bedroom.

      The kitchen is positioned at one end of the property where the “Breakfast Room Green' Farrow and Ball paint mirror the mature Aberdeen Park conversation area outside the large casement window. High-end quartz countertops sit atop custom-built solid oak shaker cabinetry and Victorian patterned ceramic floor tiles. All Bosch appliances including electric fan oven, electric touch hob, dishwasher and fridge freezer.

      The grand reception room is complete with original baseboards, window casing and chair rail mouldings on the walls. The large sash window frames the greenery of the mature gardens beyond through panelled encasements.

      The bathroom is finished with high-quality fixtures including a marble vanity and superior Crosswater shower fittings. The non-slip built in shower enclosure features Calcutta patterned tiles and cream microcement walls giving a polished finish.
