This elegant apartment, sits on the 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 and shops 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 paved pathway flanked by mature stocked flower beds leads you up to its impressive communal doorway which opens into an entrance hallway with wonderful Victorian features.
Stairs lead up to the first floor and the apartment`s private entrance door. Stepping into the entrance hallway, the elegant décor and generous proportions are echoed throughout the property.
Straight ahead, light pours into the spacious living/dining room through its large bay window which offers leafy garden views and dapples the maple wooden flooring with sunlight. It is an exceptionally welcoming space with ample room for relaxing and entertaining in and a brick enclosed fireplace adds character and warmth in the colder months.
Conveniently placed next door is the kitchen/breakfast room. White glossy cabinets contrast beautifully with its dark counter tops and black and white chequered flooring. There is a fitted Zanussi oven, room for additional appliances and space for a breakfast bar or small table to sit and enjoy a cup of coffee at.
Returning to the hallway, the master bedroom is first on the right with an impressively large window bathing the room in light. A wall of fitted wardrobes, a modern en-suite shower room and graceful proportions give a very tranquil feeling.
Next door is the second bedroom which is a very generous double.
A stylish bathroom adds to the feeling of luxury that the apartment certainly delivers on. It has a shower over its bath, contemporary tiling and a high window bringing in lots of natural light.
Beautifully finished 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!
