Three bedroom garden maisonette on the upper ground and lower ground floors with private entrance; includes single garage with direct access from garden.
This garden maisonette is approximately 2,100 sq ft, stylishly presented and arranged over the ground and lower ground floor of a former Grade I listed townhouse. The townhouse is part of an impressive Georgian Crescent, originally designed and built by John Eveleigh (completed in 1820's) and more recently renovated and redeveloped to provide luxury apartments and townhouse living.
The property is accessed off the high pavement with its own private entrance lobby and entrance hall. The drawing room is to the front and has feature Chesney's fireplace, bespoke book shelves and storage, low voltage lighting sockets and smart lighting system as well as tall ceilings and sash windows to the front elevation. The kitchen diner to the rear, comes complete with its designer Italian kitchen complemented by integrated appliances, Silstone work surfaces and island unit. There is space for a large dining table and it has French doors that lead out to the rear garden and terrace.
An impressive contemporary oak staircase leads down to the bedrooms on the lower ground floor, where there is a large under stairs storage cupboard. The principal bedroom suite comprises a bedroom with access to the private rear lower terrace, stylish integrated cupboards and access to a luxury en suite. The en suite bath/shower room has a sculpted bath, walk-in shower, vanity wash hand basin, chrome heated towel rail and separate W.C with vanity screening. There is a guest bedroom with walk-in dressing room and a study/bedroom 3 with direct access to the boot room and vaults. Additionally there is a utility cupboard with space and provision for a washer/dryer, cupboards and wash hand basin.
The apartment benefits from an impressive landscaped garden to the rear, which can be accessed off the kitchen/diner via a walkway to a paved patio area. There are steps up and a pathway that leads through the different terraced sections to the garage. The gardens have been well thought out and sensibly designed to combine tastefully planted flower borders, level lawn, paved seating area and specimen shrubs all enclosed by robust rubble stone walls with dressed cap stones. There are steps to the single garage, which has power and lighting as well as an electric up and over door. The garage is approached off Somerset Lane via electric in and out gates. There is also a hard standing in front of the garage as well as a communal water supply. Additionally there is access to and the use of the front residents garden, which offers a parkland setting, meandering pathways, specimen trees and plenty of green open space safely enclosed with ornate iron railings.
I love the unique setting of Somerset Place with its no-through road and far-reaching views. This beautifully appointed apartment is a rare find.Matthew Pegler
