Externally, the house provides a handsome Georgian red brick façade, dating to the late 18th Century and most likely built by the celebrated Paty family (father and son).
It is inside however that No. 4 really sings, with the current owners sympathetically refurbishing the house with a soft but commanding touch; highlighting the numerous retained period features and classic light-filled proportions a Georgian house brings, yet fitting all the modern conveniences a family of today might need.
Through the front door, the welcoming hall with stripped wooden floors leads you in via a carved wooden archway to the stairwell, complete with the retained curved wooden balustrades and stairs to the upper floors.
The open plan kitchen and dining room are a wonderful space; high ceilings, period plasterwork and plenty of space for dining and socialising. The kitchen enjoys an expanse of work space, a large central island and a comforting gas fired AGA. There is plenty of fitted storage, along with a double fronted larder cupboard, integrated dishwasher and an integrated oven and surface mounted gas hobs for summer months, if the AGA is off.
From the dining room, a door leads out to the sunny rear courtyard, and to the gated parking beyond.
Further along the entrance hall is a useful rear hall, with a fabulous retained butlers pantry along with an ingenious "spyhole" cut through the stairs to spot who might be coming in the front door. The rear hall also houses a useful downstairs cloakroom with w.c and wash basin as well as further access to the rear garden and parking.
Upstairs, the first floor is a spectacular space, split between the formal drawing room to the front, with its shuttered triple sash windows, high ceilings with richly detailed plaster work, open fire and curved front elevation; and the spacious rear sitting room, finished in a darker hue with integrated bookcases and currently a generous home office. This too enjoys an open fire, and the room can easily double as a fifth bedroom, should extra guest space be needed.
From the hall and first floor half-landing is access to a private and roof terrace, walled on all sides and complete with sash windows, but exposed above to the sky. This is a fantastic space for a drink or meal, but does carry existing to consent to cover and bring "back in" to the house.
Above, the owners have dressed the second floor as a master suite, complete with a fabulous bedroom to the rear and fully fitted dressing room to the front. The dressing room could easily convert back to a fourth bedroom. The owners have spared no expense with the shower room, with a sensational walk-in shower cubicle with "book-matched" oversize marble slabs.
Over the landing on the first floor the owners have created a useful utility cupboard.
Above, over the top floor lie two charming double bedrooms, each with exposed wooden floors, and a stylish more contemporary bathroom complete with a separate walk-in shower.
Lower Ground Floor
Privately accessed from either the front or rear is a useful self-contained two bedroom apartment. Perfect for dependent relatives, home-help or for an additional income.
To the rear, the house enjoys a sunny south-westerly orientation, catching much of the day's sun. At present, the rear is divided between a courtyard garden and extensive parking, and can be configured again in favour of either asset. Access is via a remote control electric gate, and there is access to both the main house and apartment below.
To the front, No. 4 has been granted use of the well-maintained communal gardens; providing a perfect spot to enjoy the rich architectural backdrop of the crescent and the roof tops of Park Street, the University and Wills Memorial Tower to the front.
