Out of the three (half) stucco-fronted Victorian houses in this short terrace, this middle home is the only one with a portico balcony. The house has been completely stripped back, intelligently remodelled and where possible, restored. The plumbing and wiring are new, intricate coving in the double reception has been meticulously revived and superior fittings have been installed. New sash windows are fitted and many are huge, there's a zoned central heating system, a cable and wired media set-up (for television and internet connection) and a superb alarm system with potential to be controlled by a smart phone/tablet while you're on the move. The kitchen/diner has a horseshoe kitchen area with solid granite worktop, brand new integrated appliances - Bosch dishwasher, washing machine and built-in oven/hob and a brand new fridge/freezer and built-in microwave. Porcelain tiles are laid undefoot, down-lighters are fitted in the ceiling, sash windows are enormous and French doors lead out to the garden. There's a paved patio, raised lawn, new fencing and a cast iron sprial staircase that drops down from the raised-ground-floor study. At the rear of the basement is a cloakroom with W.C, while at the front is a separate entrance and large understairs cupbaord (ideal for bikes and buggies). More storage has been added under the main staircase.
The double reception is an impressive space with beautiful, painstakingly restored Victorian coving, an engineered oak floor and elegant off-white walls. Tucked peacefully away at the back is a study/computer area with built-in desk while at the main entrance you'll find a large walk-in storage/coat area. The roof terrace is on the first rear mezzanine level,has a wall topped with cast iron spearheads and the floor is decked. You'll love the size of the master bedroom, which also has an original fireplace with a solid marble mantelpiece and unusual round firebox. Super-smart bathroom fittings include a back-to-wall W.C, basin inset into a vanity unit and a shower over the bath with a giant shower rose. Upstairs is a carefully finished Jack and Jill shower room and two double eaves bedrooms with full standing height.
