Screened by hedging and set back from the road by an off-street driveway, this impressive double fronted detached Victorian property stands proud in its sought-after St John`s setting.
Its smart Victorian red brick exterior contrasts beautifully with its black and white bays and gables drawing you up to its vestibule porch. Wooden panelled walls and tiled flooring give a nod to the apartment`s grand Victorian heritage and features, while there is ample space for muddy boots too.
Beyond, the simply beautiful entrance door opens into the wide hallway, its neutral décor glistening with colours from the stained-glass window panels. It is a generous space and easily doubles as a dining room. Steps at the rear lead down to a useful cellar with plenty of room for storage.
First on the left is the large elegant living room with light flooding in from its handsome bay window. A beautiful period marble fireplace frames the chimney breast adding immense character and warmth to the room inviting you to curl up in deep sofas on cold winter nights.
The beautiful double bedroom opposite is spacious and light with its own large bay window and period fireplace creating a sense of opulence and romance.
Along the hallway is a separate cloakroom and a luxurious bathroom with a freestanding roll top bath and a corner shower cubicle with rainwater shower head which create a relaxing and tranquil bathing experience.
Returning to the hall you enter the kitchen at the far end with an abundance of cream coloured units, some glazed, and warm wooden work tops bathed in light from its large window placed above the deep butler sink. The kitchen has everything you need with plumbing and space under the counter for a washing machine and space for a fridge/freezer and range cooker. There is also an integrated dishwasher and plenty of room for a table and chairs.
This beautiful apartment benefits from off street parking and it is also conveniently located in a sought-after residential area with first rate schools, commuter links, eateries and shops on its doorstep. A must see!
