Set over five floors with two terraces, and arranged over 3700 sq ft, this former print house was originally built c. 1850. A rich history ebbs through the building with a raft of stunning original features and exceptional design details, neatly fused together by its current owners to make it one of the most remarkable and atmospheric houses in London.

On entering the property, you arrive in the lobby, separated by a stained-glass wall. This leads to a reception room with a view through the full depth of the house and into the kitchen.

The main reception room is beautifully designed and arranged as a lounge, with a log burner as the focal point. Leading off this room to the rear of the property is the kitchen, separated by floor to ceiling, framed, stained glass which contains a set of double doors allowing the two rooms to become one when required.

The master has been divided into three areas - bedroom, dressing room and bathroom.
