This is a two-bedroom period conversion positioned in a grand, period building with an ornate exterior. The building is set back from the road and the front garden belongs to this property (where the current owners park their car).
Some striking features of this flat that may not be apparent from the images include:
• Living room has a lovely bay window and an additional and equally lovely floor to ceiling window. As the windows are southerly facing, this makes the room feel especially light
• A basement which can be seen on the floor plan including the dimensions
• There are two stunning fireplaces both of which have cast iron features and one which has some beautiful period style tiles
• Front and rear gardens both belong to this property. The rear garden extends to over 57ft and the front garden is large enough to fit a family car
• Living area leading onto a kitchen dining area which feels similar to having two reception rooms. This is a rare feature in our experience especially as the kitchen diner has space for a dedicated dining table which could seat at least four people (as can be seen in the images)
• Long lease over 100 years
• Overall floor space of approximately 800 sq ft which is the size of a small house
• A few steps in the hallway make the property feel split level which adds to the charm of the layout
• There are built in wardrobes in the bedroom
The images do a fantastic job of illustrating the kitchen and bathroom, both of which are modern and on trend with modern interior design schemes.
