Set back behind a gated front garden, the property is entered via an impressive shared entrance and communal hallway, with an imposing stair curving to the upper floors. The private entrance to this stunning home opens into a welcoming reception hall, enjoying striking contemporary décor, offsetting a delicate original cornice and white-painted, wood-panelled doors. A warm-toned timber-styled floor (which flows through much of the flat) draws you into an elegant living and dining room.
This superbly-proportioned reception room, ideal for both relaxing and entertaining, boasts ample space for a chosen configuration of lounge and seated dining furniture. Appealing original features include a ceiling cornice, a mantlepiece, and twin picture windows, which frame the elevated, front-facing outlook.
Across the hall, a Scandinavian inspired kitchen comes with a sweep of pale-toned, timber cabinets, paired with matching worktops, incorporating twin Belfast-styled sinks and set against contrasting tiled splashbacks. Space is provided for freestanding appliances, including a cooker, fridge/freezer, dishwasher, and washing machine.
There is useful storage in a fitted larder cupboard, and a separate large hall boxroom currently used as a micro-office.
The property offers three well-proportioned double bedrooms, each featuring fitted cupboards and room for both freestanding bedroom furniture and workstations. The bedrooms retain the charming period features that flow through the flat, offset by soft, neutral décor, with, in the master bedroom, cosy carpeting for added comfort.
Bedrooms two and three, located to the rear, enjoy a beneficial southerly aspect, with large windows framing a leafy garden outlook.
Completing the accommodation, a naturally-lit bathroom comes complete with a traditionally-styled WC-suite and bath with an electric shower over, all enveloped within practical tiling. The property retains its traditional sash windows.
Externally, there is controlled on-street (Zone S2) located conveniently at the front of the property, and in the surrounding area.
