Property description

Tenure: Freehold

An iconic and imposing detached Grade II Listed Canonbury home sat on a corner plot with an award winning garden. The property totals over 3,100 sq ft and consists of two parts, the detached house built in the mid-1800s, and a two storey 16th century octagonal tower which was originally built as a garden room. The lateral space throughout is impressive due to the unique configuration. The main part of the house boasts an open plan kitchen and utility room with ample storage and a dining room at ground level. This leads to a conservatory overlooking the garden reaching near 80 ft facing west. The front and back gardens wrap around the entire house and the unobstructed views, due to the plot, mean the entire property is flooded with natural light. The first of the two octagonal rooms forming part of the tower is currently used as a fantastic reception room with Victorian gothic windows. Period features throughout have been retained to include sash windows with shutters feature fireplaces, cornicing and ceiling roses. The upper floor of the tower is off the main hall and offers a spectacular principal bedroom with a domed double height ceiling, there is an adjacent bathroom with a Juliet balcony over the terrace. The top two floors offer three further double bedrooms and a family bathroom. Final points of note include a garage, off street parking and side access to the garden. While the property would benefit from internal changes it offers strong bones and the rarity of this opportunity cannot be overstated.
