A beautifully presented house with elegant entertaining space, six bedrooms and a west facing garden, and set on a quiet residential road in the heart of Brook Green
This extraordinary house was completely rebuilt within the four walls of this charming Victorian house to provide a perfect blend of classically inspired design along with exceptional levels of finish.
There is a wide entrance hall with an archway opening onto a bright dining room with bay window, which has shutters fitted for security and insulation, and new marble fireplace with gas fire. Double, pocket sliding, doors lead onto a drawing room with matching gas fireplace. This room flows into the Mark Wilkinson designed kitchen breakfast room with Miele appliances. The kitchen is flooded with light from the ceiling lantern and leads to the West facing, secluded patio garden with York stone paving 20'3 x 16'8.
The first floor shares the well-proportioned master bedroom with an unusually generous bathroom and excellent wardrobes with adjacent study/dressing room or single bedroom. From the original staircase on the mezzanine floor above the kitchen there is a guest's double bedroom with double aspect windows and an en-suite bathroom with shower.
The second floor has two further bedrooms and a shared shower room, and, on this floor, there is a good storage space in the eaves with double access.
The newly added basement has underfloor heating, and the utility room houses the immersion heater, expansion tank and water softener under the stairs. It also has cooking facilities. The large, high-ceilinged room has good natural sun light from the light well and here there is a bay window with shutters for extra security and warmth. It can be used as a playroom, bedroom, or media room.
The house is set back behind a good-sized front garden with newly added storage for bins and bicycles and there is a single step to the front door so giving easy access for prams and buggies.
Viewing is highly recommended to appreciate this stunning house. Throughout there is an exceptional level of craftsmanship, design, and finish and this extends to every part of the fabric of the building with underfloor heating, new Accoya double glazed windows, solid oak doors and flooring, cornicing copied by Butchers and a Welsh slate roof.
