The epitome of stylish city living
Built around 1879, this is a particularly striking double bay fronted Victorian house. With around 5,143 sq ft arranged over three floors, it provides exceptional family living space, and is complemented by beautifully landscaped, walled gardens, and the added attraction of extensive off-street parking. The rooms are of elegant proportions, with high ceilings and many period features, and an extensive
programme of modernisation has taken place to provide a truly stylish family home.
The centrepiece is the stunning kitchen/family room. The hand built kitchen has been tastefully designed, includes quality appliances, and a large light lantern creates a light and welcoming space. With large, folding doors opening to the garden, it is particularly ideal for entertaining and family gatherings. There is also a separate pantry, a temperature controlled wine store, useful laundry room, boot room and cloakroom.
On the first floor, the impressive master bedroom suite has a bathroom, a sumptuous dressing room, and a delightful roof terrace overlooking the garden. There is a another double bedroom with en suite bathroom, a smaller dressing room and a cloakroom.
On the second floor are three further good bedrooms, a useful guest kitchen, and a large bathroom.
The stunning landscaped gardens are a particularly attractive feature. An electric gate opens to the gravelled parking area, with clipped hedges to the front of the house and newly planted trees on either side. A paved terrace to the rear provides the perfect al fresco dining area, and leads to the imaginatively designed and carefully laid out gardens, with carefully planted trees and shrubs to enhance the feeling of privacy. Beyond the lawn, an area has been cleverly created to make the most of outdoor living. A sheltered, paved seating area has an impressive outdoor fireplace, and an inviting garden room discreetly tucked away is perfect for parties, peace and quiet, or a well deserved sundowner.
