About this property

  • Having been extended and refurbished historically and further updated and improved by our clients, 185 Upper Grosvenor Road is an impressive, sizeable period townhouse offering immaculately and highly stylishly presented, generously proportioned family accommodation arranged over three floors, enjoying many period features including high ceilings, sash windows, deep skirting boards and some decorative coving.

    The ground floor offers a generous and well thought out layout. On entering the reception hall has striking black and white checkerboard tiling, with bespoke fitted storage underneath the elegant staircase. Having knocked through two more modest reception rooms into one, the sizeable double sitting room is found to the front of the house with Herringbone Amtico floors throughout, zoned into two areas, a bay window and Victorian fireplace with attractive marble surround and alcove units to the front and, a TV/film area to the back of the room, with bespoke drinks cupboard. A separate, good-sized study is ideal for today's working from home needs. There is a ground floor cloakroom.

    To the rear of the house the impressive extension incorporates a kitchen/breakfast and dining area that overlooks and opens directly onto the paved terrace and gardens beyond through bi-fold doors, this is a super spot for outdoor dining and entertaining and is a lovely extension of the kitchen/dining room in the warmer months. The bespoke Neptune kitchen, which has been refurbished in recent years, comprises both attractive wall and base units together with a central island and breakfast bar and granite worktops, providing plenty of preparation space and storage together with integrated appliances including a large range cooker, dishwasher, wine cooler, washer/dryer and space for an American style fridge/freezer.

    The first floor is home to the large principal bedroom, with bay window to the front and bank of fitted wardrobes. There are two further light and spacious double bedrooms and a beautifully appointed bathroom on this floor. The second-floor houses a further double bedroom, with a dressing area leading to a further bathroom.

    Outside - The garden has been lovingly landscaped to offer colour, interest and good screening. There are pleached Photinia Red Robbin trees to one side, trailing roses, pretty borders filled with hydrangeas, iris, and alliums and further trees and established planting. There is a large expanse of level lawn which is perfect for child's play, with room for a shed and play area.

I love the look of this house both inside and out and the location is super, you are so well placed for everything the town offers in all directions! Walk to nearby parks, the shopping centre, St. Johns to the North, the High Street & Pantiles to the South, and Camden Road in between, which offers so many new restaurants, fresh coffee, an artisan bakery, fishmongers, green grocers and so much more!
