Why you’ll like it

This flamboyant red brick Renaissance style building has terracotta facings with shell details and an impressive, arched entrance. The central hallway inside is amazing, with high vaulted ceilings, marble terrazzo flooring, stained glass windows, tiled walls and sweeping staircases. This contemporary apartment is on the ground floor and is in a sought after position next to the walled garden of this exclusive property. The sleek, clean lines of this striking home are in deliberate contrast to the abundance of decoration throughout the building and begins with the gleaming oak flooring in the welcoming hallway with a chic shower room on the left. There is a large cupboard by the door for coats and bags and storage is not an issue in this well designed apartment, which includes just in the hall a walk through cupboard which runs almost the full depth of the apartment as well as under stair storage.

Ahead, the stunning living space has a real wow factor with a vaulted ceiling and full of light pouring through glorious arched windows soaring over 3 metres to the ceiling all around this spacious L shaped room and which, most unusually for this central location, open to the restful green of the trees and flowers of the carefully tended communal garden which is sheltered from traffic noise. Large enough to be discreetly zoned, the kitchen is sensibly near to the entrance hall so you can kick off your shoes after a day in the city and settle down with a nice glass of something. Separated from the dining area by a peninsular island which doubles as a breakfast bar where your friends can sit and chat as you cook, the streamlined units are topped by smooth stone work surfaces. All of the appliances, including the electric hob, microwave and oven are integrated, so all that you need to add are fresh food and good company. Moving through the dining area, which has bespoke shelving and cupboards along one wall, the room turns the corner to the living room, which feels more intimate as there is a mezzanine level above it. Upstairs is a glamorous master suite with a dressing room and a luxury en suite large enough for a bath with a shower above it, and the glistening porcelain underfoot conceals underfloor heating. Privately at the end of a long passageway, the guest bedroom is also a generous size and could equally be a lovely peaceful study. 

Bear in mind

This chain free duplex is at the back of this substantial building which is also very secure with an electronic entry system and a concierge.
