Delightful Georgian townhouse in a highly sought after location
20 Danube Street is a fine example of a Georgian terraced townhouse offering charming and flexible family accommodation on four principal floors. Many of the original period features have been retained while the house has been upgraded for modern day requirements. At ground floor level a welcoming stone flagged entrance hall leads to the sitting room with marble mantelpiece and 2 windows to Danube Street. Unusually, this room is open to the family room behind, making this a particularly spacious living and reception space, enjoying both east and west aspects and plenty of light. A corridor with utility room and WC leads to the rear door opening directly to the garden.
An elegant stone stair crowned by a delightful cupola rises to the first floor off which lies the impressive drawing room with marble mantelpiece, three full height windows and a balcony overlooking Danube Street. This room is currently used as the principal bedroom and has a dressing room off. There is a further spacious bedroom on this floor with an en suite shower room, as well as a further shower room. A further stair rises to the second floor where there are two charming bedrooms and a further family bathroom.
At lower ground floor level there is a generous and beautifully appointed dining kitchen with flagstone floors and direct access from the front basement area to this level. There is a stone flagged courtyard to the front with two dry-lined under pavement cellars.
To the rear there is a charming terraced west facing walled garden, with mature planting.
