An impressive three-bedroom, duplex apartment located on the prestigious Kensington Gate built circa 1902 to 1903 by David Barclay of H & D Barclay. This locally admired ‘B’ listed Edwardian townhouse conversion overlooks immaculately tended residents pleasure gardens to the front and has had the original period boundary cast iron railings beautifully restored. Formed over the ground and lower ground floor levels, the accommodation flows effortlessly to include a reception hallway with study/store off, three excellent double sized bedrooms, a TV/snug, utility room and four-piece bathroom. On the lower level there is a stunning recently reconfigured living/dining room with a contemporary open plan kitchen. Outside, there is a private area of garden and the residents garden beyond features a large lawned area, seating areas, built-in barbeque, gazebo and play areas. Internally the property is immaculately presented and retains many period features.
