This fantastic apartment sits on the first floor of its grand Victorian house which has been sensitively converted into six flats, keeping the gracious proportions of the rooms.
Its own front door opens into a wide hallway with a deep cupboard and access to the loft area providing plenty of storage options to keep the space clutter free.
First on your left is the living/dining room which is flooded with light from its beautiful bay window overlooking the quiet residential street below. It is plenty big enough for large comfortable sofas to relax in or to entertain and dine at a dining table.
The kitchen which is open plan to the living room is nicely separated by being set back behind an arched opening. It is finished to a modern standard with natural light from its own large front aspect window and there is ample counter top space with cabinets top and bottom separating appliances that will be included.
Returning to the hallway past the generously sized bathroom is the bedroom. It has a very bright feeling with light flooding in through its large rear aspect window overlooking the lush green communal gardens below.
The apartment benefits greatly from its own off-road parking space to the rear of the house beyond the communal gardens which are laid mainly to lawn with mature leafy borders and trees affording great privacy.
With high ceilings, spacious rooms, period features and sought-after location this apartment would suit first time buyers, investors and professionals alike. A must see!
