About this property

  • The Garden House, as 24 Vermont Crescent is known, is an exceptional modern house, built to an extraordinary standard in 2007 in the beloved classical style.

    The handsome red brick building with stone quoins is perfectly proportioned with symmetrically positioned sash windows. Three dormer windows project from the hipped roof, of which the central one perfectly aligns with the arched window of the first floor and the pediment above the front door.

    Through the panelled front door, above which is carved ‘The Garden House', is the generous reception hall, which leads through to the kitchen, sitting room, dining room, home office/study and cloakroom; an oak staircase leads to the first and second floor accommodation.

    The kitchen/breakfast room is the heart of the house and is an exceptionally well designed space. Granite work surfaces and island provide superb space for preparing meals or entertaining, and integrated Neff appliances include twin ovens, hob, microwave, fridge/freezer and dishwasher. Glazing to the rear of the house fills the room with natural light and offers a vaulted area for dining and relaxing. An adjoining boot room/utility is a useful space to house a washing machine and tumble drier, and has a secondary external door.

    Double doors from the reception hall lead to the elegantly proportioned sitting room, with gas fire and stone chimneypiece. Like the kitchen, the sitting room has French windows leading on to the west-facing terrace and garden.

    The dual aspect principal bedroom is a particularly impressive room, occupying the southern section of the first floor and benefits from an adjoining shower room. The remaining bedrooms are well-proportioned double rooms; the bathroom houses a bath and a large separate shower. The second floor comprises a further two generous bedrooms with good head height and sharing an innovative Jack and Jill bathroom.

    To the rear of the house – accessed from either of the French windows in the sitting room and kitchen, or by access to the sides of the building – is a wonderful west-facing garden, which enjoys the sun for the majority of the day and into the evening. A fabulous terrace immediately at the back is perfect for private dining or entertaining.

    There is ample parking at the front and an excellent double garage, which, with power and windows, has also been used as a home gymnasium.

24 Vermont Crescent is absolutely delightful. It has been beautifully designed and I love the kitchen/breakfast room, which is fully glazed to rear, leading out to the garden.
