SOLD BY FLYING FISH PROPERTIES This elegant apartment spans the entire first floor of an impressive period conversion, which forms part of a Victorian property that dates back to the 1840s. It has an historical claret plaque and its origins began as a private school, which adds to the sense of character and charm.
Set back from the road by an expanse of grass with the green common opposite and the popular Pantiles cafes, shops and bridge club nearby, this home enjoys the best of both worlds. It is also a short walk from the mainline station with links into central London.
A set of stone steps lead up to the apartment's private entrance door which opens into a useful lobby with plenty of space for coats and muddy boots.
An inner lobby behind leads into a graceful entrance hallway whose elegant décor and generous proportions give a nod to the building's Victorian heritage and features. It stretches the length of the apartment, widening towards the back to offer space for a study area.
First on the right is the magnificent drawing room, which is flooded with light from its large west facing double glazed front aspect windows. It is an impressive size with high ceilings and period detailing and a new glass enclosed gas fire, within a marble fireplace, adds warmth in the colder months.
To the rear is the kitchen which is streamlined and well equipped as you would expect from a home of this quality. Light bounces off the wooden flooring while the warm wooden counter tops contrast beautifully with the cream cupboards. A rear glazed door leads out onto the sunny east facing paved courtyard where there is ample space for a table and chairs.
Next door is the elegant dining room, conveniently placed next to the kitchen, whose high ceiling, windows and period fireplace add lots of character for a delightful dining experience.
Along the hallway are two bedrooms, one currently set up as a home office, and one a generous double that easily fits a large four poster bed.
The graceful master bedroom with an impressive wall of fitted wardrobes and a handsome south facing bay window is a wonderful space. It has a useful lobby area which leads to its en-suite with walk in shower cubicle.
A bathroom with a shower over its bath and double aspect windows that bring in lots of natural light completes the apartment.
With high ceilings, spacious rooms, period features and central location this home is a perfect investment purchase and would suit first time buyers, investors and professionals alike. A must see!
