We take great pleasure in marketing this very attractive split level three-bedroom period conversion on Elsinore Road.
Offering over 1000 sq ft of living space spread over the first and second floors of an ornate period building, as well as two wash rooms (one en-suite) and no parking restrictions on the road, this is quite a rare find.
Some of the stand out features for us upon first viewing the property were:
•The ornate features of the building’s exterior. The bay windows have wonderful detail and the period pillars that create the porch are quite rare in this area, although Elsinore Road has several properties that offer similar exterior features adding to the character of this wide tree lined road.
•The lounge spans the width of the building measuring approximately 17 ft. The bay window and second window in this room fill the room with natural light. These windows are period style sliding sash windows in keeping with the character of the building.
•There are wonderful fireplaces as the centrepieces of the lounge and second bedroom which both have beautiful cast iron inserts and ornate surrounds which is very striking.
•An inspired addition to the master bedroom is the Juliet balcony with double doors. Rarely do bedrooms in period properties benefit from a feature like this.
•The master bedroom has a luxury en-suite which is finished with metro tiles and a wide shower. There is access to eaves storage from this room as well as access to a second loft space from the first floor providing lots of storage for the occupier.
There is so much more to this property that can only be appreciated upon viewing, however the images do a fantastic job of showing you what’s on offer.
