This Gothic style Victorian house comprises of well laid out accommodation arranged over 4 floors. The present owner has invested both time and money in presenting the home to retain many of its original period features fusing them with modern additions. Notable features included ornate cornicing and ceiling roses, cast iron fireplaces and radiators, original polished floorboards, decorative floor tiling, high skirting boards and picture railings.

On the raised ground floor you will find a generous entrance hallway, sitting room which gives the sense of grandeur owing to its sizeable bay window and double height ceilings and in turns provides access to the beautiful conservatory which is a recent addition within the last couple of years. The conservatory is a large bright space and is kept warm by under floor heating and cool by air conditioning. French doors invite the outside in and a separate set of French doors give access to the kitchen.

The kitchen is the epicentre of every family home and this one is no exception. The extended space oozes class and style owing to the Clive Wilkinson fitted units, sub zero fridge/freezer, Gaggenau appliances which include a gas and electric hob, double ovens with a warming drawer and wine cooler. There is a butler sink, central island and breakfast bar. Of particular note is the mosaic tiled floor which is designed and laid in a traditional Victorian style. Natural light pours in through 2 large windows. The extended part of the kitchen provides an area for a large dining table which is lit by a delightful stain glass window and floor to ceiling French doors providing access to the patio and garden beyond. You will also find the WC here.

The half basement level is a versatile and flexible space. The present owner used this floor as a gym and cinema room. There is a good sized shower room and sauna room. Separate access is also offered which could serve as an entry for a self contained space. On the same level you will find the rather large utility room which is accessed via stairs from the hallway. There is also access from the front of the house via double doors and to the rear of the house.

On the first floor is the master bedroom suite which has a sink, roll top bath and stairs that take you to the walk in wardrobe space. Its here that you are afforded wonderful views of Epping Forest and the decorative roof tower typical of gothic architecture. Also on the first floor are two good sized double bedrooms with bedroom 3 having a sink and shower cubicle.
To the second floor is bedroom 4 which is larger than average bedroom and has a fitted wardrobe.


If Victorian architecture is your thing and especially gothic revival then it is worth taking a seat and admiring this house from the front. Details such as the ornate crucifix finial, iron railings, decorative barge boards, sash windows, canted bay window and ridge tiles give this house real character and presence. The other Victorian houses on this road are all inferior in their exterior detailing owing to the fact that the person who built them designed and lived in the house offered for sale and wanted his to stand out.

To the front is a paved driveway and to the rear a large paved patio with decorative paving, mature boarders and lawn area with a central path. To the rear of the garden is a larger timber built summer house with patio area. The garden is facing south west.
