Launch Day 22nd October

Just a short stroll from Preston Park and Station, is this stunning and spacious, two bedroom garden maisonette. It is lower ground, but does not feel as such, as light is able to permeate through from front to back where it is built into the hill. It has been fully refurbished throughout to include a double height rear extension, and it is clear the designer has a refined eye for style and taste. The finish is polished, using quality materials, and being split level it feels more like a house than a flat. Being so favourably located and in such fine decorative order, this modern home is sure to be coveted by commuters, first timers and investors alike.

In brief:

Style: LGF split level flat in a Victorian terrace

Bedrooms: 2 double

Living rooms: 1 spacious

Outside: Walled rear garden

Location: Preston Park/Preston Circus

Parking: Parking permit zone Q

Why you’ll like it:

This sweet terrace of Victorian houses stands at the bottom of the sweeping road linking Preston Park and Porthall, flying high over the railway tracks. As you approach the stone steps leading down to the front door, you are already aware that this is going to be an elegant and beautifully maintained home. The walls are crisp white, and the front door is on trend in charcoal. This opens to a long hallway, with plush mid grey carpets, and the master bedroom is first on the left.

This is a lovely light room with an almost full width, square bay window facing south west, and an oak floor in pale ash tones serves to lift the space further. There are shades of grey throughout this chic apartment, as the walls are in here, but the woodwork has been picked out in white, and there’s space for wardrobes within the alcoves. Bedroom two is next door, and this is only a touch smaller with the same decor, and a wardrobe plus cupboard built in to maximise the space. Just outside the door, the hallway widens to accommodate an office space, and this landing area is well lit from the staircase to the lower floor which has glass balustrades to allow the light to permeate through. 

Staying on this floor however is the bathroom which gleams with large tiles in natural stone ceramic, and has a wet room style shower as well as a bath, so the entire space feels very luxurious. It has crisp lines and contemporary fixtures and fittings, and while it is an internal room it is well ventilated and has soothing lighting for atmosphere.

To the left is a small landing which is where the brand new extension begins. The kitchen is on the upper floor up a few steps, and this is a generous room with space for formal dining to seat six. French doors open to a strengthened glass Juliet balcony which lets the ‘outside-in’ during the warmer months, and these look out over mature trees and the garden. In the autumn and winter, when the leaves have fallen from the trees, you can see right across to the rose garden in the park - delightful! The kitchen units are seamless in sage grey gloss, and the washing machine, dishwasher, oven and hob are integrated. There’s also space for a tall fridge freezer, and the extractor fan is angled and surrounded by ice blue glass with the splashback. The floor is solid oak, and this echoes the tones of the doors throughout the flat, and is also found on the lower floor for continuity.

A flight of carpeted stairs take you down to the living room, past bounteous under stairs storage, to a sizable space for relaxing and entertaining. Bi-folding doors cover the entire wall to the garden, and when these are open, the garden becomes an extension of the living space. The garden is simply designed with a slate patio area for dining al fresco, plus a lawn and a rear patio to catch the last of the sun. A shed blends in with the wood panelling, and this is the right size for bikes which can be brought in through a rear gate so as to not bring them through the house.

Bear in mind:

Side access is through a lockable gate into the garden but this access is for pedestrians ans bicycles only.
