With a square footage to rival a house, this beautiful apartment has an exceptional interior and large, well-stocked garden. Past the original front door is a well-kept communal area with an internal door leading up to the flat. At the very rear is a huge kitchen/diner with a sunny double aspect, wooden kitchen units, a Franke one-and-a-half bowl sink, tiled floor and stainless steel built-in NEFF oven with an inset gas hob. There's plumbing for a dishwasher and washing machine and space for an undercounter wine cooler as well as dresser and freestanding fridge/freezer. At the front of the property is a full-width reception with large windows that have exterior stucco-clad arches. The reproduction wood mantelpiece houses a living gas fire and the lintel is solid marble. Feature wallpaper runs up to the dado rail in here and the hallways. An unusually large full en suite is found down a few steps off the master bedroom and is newly fitted. It has oversize Travertine style tiles, a shower cubicle, white suite and spotlights. The upstairs shower room is also new and has matching fittings and access to a huge loft that could, with planning consents, be converted into two bedrooms and a bathroom (next door has done this). Both upstairs bedrooms are doubles, have spotless decor and biscuit-coloured carpet runs across all bedroom and hall floors. Ceilings throughout the flat are high, the original balustrade and handrail remain on the stairs as does the hallway skylight with tongue-and-groove panelling. The rear garden is brimming with mature plants (crab apple, fig, eucalyptus, rowan, damson, pear, clematis, ceanothus, peonies) and has a lawn stretching 75ft. The garden is practically 'secret' being screened by a trellis wall completely covered in ivy, jasmine and Virginia creeper and has a gravelled dining area and potting shed.
