About this property

  • A beautifully presented Grade II Listed Regency family home occupying a prime central position providing luxury accommodation and a landscaped north-west facing walled garden. No 33 Lexden Road has retained its original elegant classical Regency features associated with its period of architecture, including beautifully proportioned large windows and high ceilings, original cornicing and plasterwork and its marble fireplaces. It has very good levels of accommodation arranged over three floors.

    The ground floor provides a welcoming and light-filled entrance hall opening to two large reception rooms with separating doors allowing the rooms to be open for large-scale entertaining. There is a cloakroom and by the rear staircase access can be gained to a former stable block converted to provide a utility room, a garage and a walk-in storage room. To the lower ground floor is a bespoke kitchen/family room fitted with bespoke units, workspace and appliances which is elegant in its simplicity. Beyond is a further reception room and completing this level is a wine cellar (with additional area for large fridge and freezer) and a walk-in pantry.

    An elegant staircase leads to the first floor providing five bedrooms and a luxury family bathroom. Two of the rooms provide en suite facilities.

    The property occupies a generous, rectangular-shaped plot set well back from the road over an extensive shingle driveway
    providing off-road parking for several cars. To the right-hand side of the house is a garage and a wood store. The north-west facing garden has a private terrace ideal for summer entertaining. The garden is well planned and generously stocked and is stunning in the spring and summer months. It provides a secure space for children and pets.
