Property Description

Full description

Tenure: Share of Freehold

The flat is on the top floor of a landmark semi-circular early Victorian building, located at the neck of Hanover Gardens. It was totally refurbished, and meticulously redesigned in 2014 with the use of top end materials, fixtures and fittings.

The entrance staircase on the 1st floor, brightly lit by a sash window and skylight, features a large built-in cupboard and plenty of space for hanging coats.

A home office area has been created at landing at the top of the stairs with ample shelving, telephone and power points and space for a desk and filing cabinet.

This flows into the stunning semi-circular open-plan kitchen and reception room. The space is flooded with light from five sash windows and has panoramic views of two Grade 2 listed buildings, St Marks Church and Belgrave Hospital, the church gardens and Kennington Park beyond. All the windows are fitted with planation shutters.

The spacious reception area is cleverly zoned, with plenty of room for a dining table and chairs along with a sizeable sofa, armchair and coffee table. A bespoke bookcase hugs almost the entire span of the external wall, offering plenty of display space for ornaments, books and photos. Walnut flooring, Victorian style cast iron radiators and dramatic Serge Mouille 50s style light fittings complete the luxurious feel.

The kitchen area has been finished to an exceptionally high standard with bespoke kitchen units and stylish Italian arabascato marble worktops. Top end fitted appliances include a double oven, microwave oven, 5 burner hob, fridge freezer, drinks fridge, dishwasher and a discrete remote controlled extractor recessed into the ceiling. A combination boiler is cleverly hidden away in corner cupboard.

The master bedroom is a large double with a triple built-in wardrobe, built-in shelving, high ceilings and another 1950s style Mouille ceiling mounted light.

The Italian marble-clad bathroom has a spacious a walk-in rain shower, W.C, heated towel rail, large backlit vanity mirror and a skylight. A wall hatch above the doorway offers further storage space in the roof void.

A large laundry and airing cupboard, hidden away in the hallway, houses plenty of shelving for bed linens, a separate washer and drier and an ingenious suspended clothes airer that pulls up into the roof void.

Hanover Gardens, set within St Mark's Conservation Area, is one of South London's premium garden squares. It is a tranquil haven less than one minutes walk from Oval Underground Station, with easy access to Vauxhall, the City and the West End. The Square hosts annual firework displays and carol concerts for residents, while the church is home to a vibrant Farmers Market every Saturday. The area benefits from several local eateries and delis and Surrey County Cricket Ground is only a stone's throw away.

Oval Underground Station (Northern Line) is approximately a one minute walk away. Vauxhall Station (Victoria Line and National Rail) is approximately 0.7 miles away (10-15 minute walk). The area is well served with bus routes into Central London and beyond. There are also Santander Cycle Docking Stations close by.
