About this property

  • 152 Upper Grosvenor Road is an attractive and sizeable period townhouse offering well-presented and generously proportioned family-friendly accommodation arranged over three floors.

    The generous open plan kitchen/diner caters perfectly to modern family living and entertaining, with space for a large dining table. The attractive base and wall units provide good storage and plenty of preparation space, with a range of integrated appliances. French doors provide the view over and direct access onto the terrace and garden beyond. There is an adjoining utility room with fitted cabinetry, a sink and space for further white goods, which also has access to the garden. The sitting room is to the front of the house, with a large bay window and attractive feature fireplace.

    There is a ground floor cloakroom and the house also benefits from a very useful cellar with good head height providing further additional storage for the family home.

    The first floor is home to the large principal bedroom with en suite shower room, there are two further double bedrooms, one if which enjoys a lovely outlook to Grosvenor park, and a well-appointed family bathroom with a separate bath and shower. The second-floor houses a further very large double bedroom, which is currently used as a study and gym.

    152 Upper Grosvenor Road also offers much potential, there is scope not only to extend the ground floor, but the second floor also offers further possibilities, our clients have investigated reconfiguring to create two double bedrooms and an en suite here, with an outlook to Grosvenor park, subject to all necessary consents being granted.

    Outside - The very good-sized garden is delightful with a lovely mature outlook, and has been landscaped with easy maintenance in mind, but is a lovely blank canvas for the green-fingered. The south-westerly paved terrace is a lovely spot for outdoor dining and entertaining and is a pleasing extension of the kitchen/diner in the warmer months.

    To the front of the house there is a driveway for a number of vehicles.

This is a really welcoming family home and the location works so well for town and schools. The house is in lovely order, but there is still a lot of further potential on offer. I particularly like that whenever you want a change of scene you can stroll to the station nearby and hop on a train to the city or the coast.
