    About this property

    • 50 Clarence Square is a wonderful Grade II listed end of terrace house facing west overlooking the gardens in the heart of the square.

      Found in excellent decorative order, the house offers versatile and flexible living accommodation arranged over four floors, with a lower ground floor level that is currently incorporated in to the house, but with potential to be used as a separate apartment by virtue of its independent access, subject to any necessary consents. Adding to its versatility, the lower ground floor is wired and heated separately from the upper floors.

      Worthy of particular mention are the character features that are incredibly well preserved around the house, including working window shutters, ceiling roses and cornicing, feature fireplaces and picture rails.

      The property is accessed from the front through a wrought iron pedestrian gate to an impressive stone staircase leading up to the recessed front door with glazed surround. The entrance hall features a wonderful stone cantilevered staircase, beyond which is the returning staircase to the lower ground floor, the cloakroom, second study, laundry room and rear lobby. To the right of the hall are doors in to the kitchen and the family room. The family room is a stunning room with twin windows to the front, superb cornicing and lovely feature fireplace, with twin doors in to the kitchen. Similarly impressive also with features, the kitchen includes a range of cupboard and drawer units at base and eye level as well as integrated appliances.

      On the first floor, the hugely impressive drawing room is at the front and enjoys triple windows enjoying views across the square, outside which is a narrow, ornate wrought iron balcony ideal for planting. A wide opening leads in to the principal study and both rooms feature original fireplaces, ornate cornicing and ceiling roses. At the back of the house is a bedroom (number four) with an en suite shower room.

      On the second floor are three bedrooms including the main bedroom with twin windows, a bathroom, a dressing room and a shower room.

      The lower ground floor is currently arranged to incorporate a home working space with the front room being used as a studio/office with a cupboard storage space, beyond which is bedroom five with twin doors outside to the rear courtyard, storage area and wine cellar. Beyond the hall is the ironing room and an additional shower room.

      Outside, the well enclosed rear garden is mostly lawned, with well stocked with plant and shrub borders, including a mature magnolia, beyond which is a detached double garage accessed via Wellington Lane.
