A lovely example of Edwardian architecture, this property has been stylishly and sympathetically updated by the current owners - successfully enabling modern living in Edwardian grandeur.

You can walk to Oval station (Northern Line Zone 2) by foot in 10 minutes and benefit from nearby fast and frequent buses to Oval, Vauxhall, Victoria, Paddington and beyond.
The front garden is walled and has ample space for bike storage. Venturing inside reveals a glorious wide hall and the double reception sits to your right. The ceilings are high and the space is bright and pleasant -finished with coving, picture rails and ceiling roses. Lovely oak parquet flooring graces this room and a pretty fireplace draws the eye. The rear of the reception has bookshelves lining an entire wall and this must be a lovely space to unwind with a book and enjoy pretty garden views.
Toward the end of the hall you'll find a well-presented toilet and utility room and access to the head height cellar which will provide excellent wine storage and those out of sight things we all collect. The kitchen/diner is a wonderful space with abundant, well arranged cooking and dining spaces. It's ideal for entertaining. The oak fronted shaker style cabinets and solid oak counters are complimented by a very useful central island - perfect for food preparation and entertaining. All of which are finished with chunky oak butcher’s block worktops. There’s also a butler sink, five ring range cooker and a Miele dishwasher, a fridge and freezer are all integrated. There is plenty of space for entertaining, a dining table fits comfortably and extra wide French doors will open out onto the garden in balmier months. The garden is private, low maintenance with a lawned area and thoughtfully presented with a block paved patio and an abundance of fruit trees, including; Banana, apple, cherry, pear and plum. The side return is home to the BBQ and good place for storing garden furniture.
Back inside, you'll find the stairs lead to a long landing. You'll find the generously proportioned master bedroom fronting the quiet street and enjoying the full width of the house. A gorgeous original fireplace stands proudly on your left and there's a lovely bay window that lends itself to some chairs and a full-length mirror. The bedroom behind was converted into a huge en-suite bathroom - with a sumptuous rolltop bath for relaxing at the end of the day, walk in shower for the morning dash, twin pedestal sinks, bidet and integrated W.C. Finished to the same exacting standards as the rest of the property with Heritage sinks and Beaumont fittings, porcelain tiles and a large chrome heated towel rail. Next along the hallway is another bedroom, that is currently being used as a study, perfect for its current use or a nursey. The third bedroom, a decent sized double room overlooking the garden which has another well-equipped en-suite - with a shower cubicle, W.C and another heritage sink to finish it off, floorboard style tiles look smart and spots keep things contemporary. The loft has been converted to a fourth large bedroom and en-suite, also with garden views from the dormer at the rear, built in storage and two Velux windows to the front. A lovely bright space that makes a wonderful guest room, as you would expect the en-suite is well equipped and smartly finished.
