A mirror of its refined location, this considered family home is elegant, with an edge. From the outside, its white stucco façade segues into warm brickwork and a cast iron fronted balcony. Set back from the road, a fragrant magnolia tree and manicured box hedges line the path to the portico entrance – take note of the paved driveway for coveted off-street parking.
Inside, living accommodation is arranged over five floors, threaded together with a daring colour palette. The sweeping ground floor reception rooms pair dark stained floorboards with deep teal walls to dramatic effect. A bright-white ceiling lets the ornate cornicing pop, emphasising the impressive ceiling height. A stone fireplace with an open hearth provides an inviting focal point.
Bookended by sash windows that retain their original wooden shutters, natural light flows through this double-aspect space. The rear portion of the room is ideally configured as an intimate study or reading corner overlooking the garden. Finished in an inky navy, well-conceived floor-to-ceiling cabinetry provides ample storage for a library of books.
Descend to the kitchen and dining room on the floor below, passing a cloakroom on the way. White tiles sweep across the entirety of this level, bringing a sense of continuity. Muted grey-toned walls contrast with the blue cabinets and wooden worktops that lend a traditional feel. Equipped with both a range cooker and an integrated hob, there’s culinary apparatus for every type of chef. Function and form are expertly balanced; an aluminium and wood-topped island and breakfast bar is as practical as it is aesthetically pleasing.
An exposed brick chimney breast dressed in pink tones brings a subtle urban undercurrent to the dining area that benefits from direct access to the garden. Open the French doors onto a leafy oasis – expect mature shrubs and climbing plants, plus low maintenance paving. Also on this level is a designated space for a home office.
Occupying the entire first floor, an expansive double reception room makes the most of its elevated vantage point. Currently set up as a television room, it has the potential to make a showstopping principal bedroom suite, complete with balcony access and a striking, turquoise-toned shower room. The primary room flows into a functional second space that could be used as a study, office or dressing area, and overlooks the garden.
Two further bedrooms occupy the second floor. One is painted a punchy pillar box red, the other features rich taupe walls, floor-to-ceiling fitted wardrobes and an inviting en suite, complete with graphic black-and-white tiles, a freestanding bathtub and walk-in shower.
Sloping walls give an intimate feel to both bedrooms on the upper floor, which feature cleverly integrated shelving to maximise the sense of space. These share a shower room of impressive proportions. Two skylights draw the eye upwards to the pitched ceiling, the building’s highest point, and bathe the room in light.
