DESCRIPTION An imposing mid terrace double-fronted Victorian villa circa.1886 affording spacious and versatile accommodation arranged over four floors. The property has been extensively refurbished and extended in our client's ownership with exceptional attention to detail and returning this wonderful family home back to its former glory of a bygone era.

The drawing room opens onto the music room with coved ceilings and rose and attractive tiled fireplace. On the opposite side of the hall are the morning room and library, both with decorative coving and ceiling roses, marble fireplaces and interconnected with double doors. The morning room has a deep bay box window with attractive views onto Thorn Park and the library benefits from a south-facing aspect onto the magnolia tree and back garden. Also on the ground floor is a well-equipped utility room, cloakroom and WC.

The lower ground floor at garden level is a show stopping area which has been thoughtfully designed by our clients to create a wonderfully light open plan, family living space, with a strong connection to the outside. There is a defined living area with multi-fuel burner, dining area with bifold doors leading out to a patio and level south facing garden and floor to ceiling glazed area with separate door onto the generous patio. The kitchen area has been fitted with white units incorporating white quartz work surfaces with inset sink and integrated appliances to include two single ovens, six ring gas hob with wok burner, extractor hood over and dishwasher.
