3 Bedroom House For Sale
Architect-owned, three-storey Victorian townhouse arranged to best suit its position. Three/four bedrooms, conservatory, office, garden and roof terrace. Set in Vauxhall Conservation Area, its minutes to tubes, trains and Westminster.
A considered townhouse with elegantly pared down cabinetry, original fireplaces and an unusual layout. The redesign is explained by architect-owners of Heostudio, Placing the living room at the top of the house is a really good option when living in central London. Calm and serenity is created, largely by revealing the top-floor butterfly roof in the main living areas, The result is a dramatic and unexpected space at the top of the house which feels worlds away from the busy street and office below. The house is a peaceful haven in the heart of vibrant Vauxhall.
The overall effect of the house is soothing. On the ground-floor is a double-size bedroom (that could easily be arranged as two), a rear office with perfectly streamlined cabinets, a glass-roof conservatory, a utility and a downstairs cloakroom.
The front garden is deep, the rear garden is part-walled, paved, has a large vine, bamboo and a sunny, southerly aspect. Both bedrooms on the first-floor are doubles with original fireplaces, while the master has large twin sash windows with inner casements. A neat, en suite shower room serves the second bedroom - the bathroom at the rear of the hall is open to all. Kitchen and living space is on the second-floor with its exposed London roof that provides a double-height ceiling. Notable highlights include an original fireplace, dark floorboards, two skylights, a matte-white kitchen and French doors that lead to the striking wood terrace.
We're told that planning and listing approval has been granted for a basement and conversion into two flats.
