Clifton's iconic square
An exquisite Grade II listed townhouse situated in one of Clifton's most historic squares discreetly tucked away and yet within level walking of Clifton Village. This four storey family home has been extensively refurbished and is tastefully decorated throughout. There is a generous footprint with pretty courtyard gardens, a balcony and the benefit of the communal square garden to the front. This is an affluent community of like-minded families and professionals who enjoy each other's company and take enormous pride in the immediate surroundings. There is a thriving social scene amongst the residents and of course from the adjacent village.
The refurbishment programme seamlessly combines all the original detail with contemporary additions catering for modern living. This is most definitely a lifestyle choice and the present owner has managed to create live/work and leisure all encompassed within the four walls.
A brief meander through the property starts inevitably at the vestibule and reception hall where a newly laid quality tiled floor is in evidence along with the original architrave. There are bi-folding doors which open through to the study which has an advantageous view over the south facing courtyard garden to the front and beyond to the square. A quality timber parquet floor has been added and there are original working shutters into the sash window in addition to a working fireplace with bookcases to the recesses either side. The dining room to the rear of the house also features a fireplace with a marble surround and a view over the rear courtyard garden. The lower ground floor accommodates a family room with double doors on to the aforementioned courtyard garden and there is a feature inglenook with a wood burning stove inset. The kitchen/breakfast room, which is the fulcrum of the home is beautifully appointed and ergonomically designed with a wide array of wall and base units with silestone work surfaces, tiled walls and with integrated appliances. Beyond there is a small lobby with a quarry tiled floor which extends through to the vaulted store which houses the necessary plumbing for the utility room. The cellar rooms are large and one houses the comprehensive heating system with two zone heating control and the other has been adapted for a home gym. The drawing room on the first floor is bright and spacious and features a working fireplace and a full length sash window which opens on to a balcony to take full advantage of the view over the square garden. A bedroom and adjacent bathroom complete the first floor accommodation. The top floor includes a galleried landing with a lantern light which provides natural light throughout the circulation area. There are two bedrooms; the guest bedroom has the benefit of an en suite bathroom and fitted wardrobes, whilst bedroom one has also an array of fitted wardrobes, a working fireplace and its own adjacent shower room.
The courtyard to the front of the house has structured landscaping with flagstones, established walls topped with wrought iron railings and enjoys a southerly orientation and steps down to the lower ground floor. The rear courtyard garden is walled and private with hard landscaping and captures the morning sun. The communal square garden has been beautifully maintained by the residents and is lawned and fringed with hedging.
