Property Description

Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Built in 1877 by Thomas Welcham and Robert Gale and converted from coach houses by
Messrs Stanley-Barrett in 1921, The Dial House is a wonderfully wide end of terrace mews house, discretely located in the north west corner of this ever popular garden square.

The house is arranged over four floors and extends to almost 3200 sq ft with both the first floor, reception room and the master bedroom spanning the entire 25 ft width of the house.

The property features some beautiful exposed beams which, according to records, were taken from Tudor properties and used when the house was converted from coach houses. In all the house is presented in good order but would now benefit from some cosmetic updating and there is potential, subject to the usual consents, to increase the top floor area in line with all the other houses in this terrace.

Cornwall Gardens is a handsome garden square with terraces of part stucco fronted period buildings. The open spaces of Kensington Gardens and Hyde Park are only a short walk away and both Gloucester Road and Kensington High Street underground stations are within easy walking distance. There is an extensive range of shops and restaurants nearby both on High Street Kensington and in the Gloucester Road area, as are all the world renowned museums of South Kensington.
