Why you’ll like it:

In a tranquil leafy road with the station just five minutes away, this fabulous apartment spans two floors of an imposing semi- detached Victorian Villa built in 1876. Stepping up past an attractive front garden, the stained glass front door opens into an impressive hallway where to your left the door to the apartment reveals a long, inviting hallway with a large window at the end brings in glimpses of the garden. 

Ahead a refined, sun filled reception beckons you in. Once two rooms, the blue of the carpet is reflected in the high ceilings where delicately worked friezes still wend their way around this airy room which is ideal for entertaining. The broad front bay sweeps almost from floor to ceiling whilst behind you, the west wall is also almost all glass, bringing in wonderful views of the landscaped garden, one of only a few of this size in this central location. Period features abound in this elegant space and there is an ornate period style fireplace housing a gas fire which has traditional shelving and cupboards to each side. 

Next door, the guest room has a graceful sash window stretching almost the full height of this willowy room which is made private by the mature tree outside. Along the hallway, past the guest cloakroom, stairs lead down a bright staircase to a landing where the sociably designed kitchen/diner opens into the garden. With exposed brick and beams this room is full of character and is beautifully organised with a gleaming black Stanley range (gas run) backed up in the summer time by a touch induction hob and electric oven, both of which are integrated into the central island. Ivory and glass units which would not look out of place in Chelsea are topped by solid wood surfaces and there are several levels of lighting to choose the mood. The deep, wide bay window at the dining end of the room has a unique stained glass light above it and the door leads out to a sun terrace, perfect for al fresco dining and with lighting already in place for supper parties. Broad steps lead up to a celebratory centenary fountain and a path that flows around the flower beds to a charming summer house which has power, great for some- one who works at home as clients could come in through the side gate. Returning inside, opposite the kitchen is a spacious utility with its own door to the garden and there is a big cupboard in the lobby as well, so storage is simply not an issue in this spacious home. 

Also on this floor is the glamorous master bedroom of restful proportions which has a generous bay window at front garden height. Two double wardrobes are already in place for you and the chrome electric fire has a Deco feel which continues in the fabulous bathroom next door, gleaming in classic black and white, with twin hand basins and a luxurious whirlpool bath also has a shower above it.

Bear in mind:

This home offers a rare combination of timeless elegance and a sociable modern lifestyle and has a large garden which is extremely hard to find in this sought after, central location.
