Agent Comment, “Rarely do we come across an apartment finished to such a high standard at this price point. Set back some 400 yards from the road, in a premier position within the building, this light-filled apartment is truly a unique opportunity to own a piece of Georgian architectural magnificence.”
Recently renovated to a very high standard, the well thought out accommodation begins with a breath-taking, spacious hallway with hardwood flooring, wood panelling, William Morris wallpaper and 3-column period radiator. The hallway currently serves as both a home office and a Utility with clever AEG stacking washing machine and tumble dryer housed inside custom shaker cabinets.
Off of this central hub you will find the bright and beautiful reception room with period-style wood panelling, underfloor heating, hardwood flooring, designer lighting and a bespoke, built-in dining booth. With views over the front lawns this room leads to the contemporary, fully fitted shaker-style kitchen with gas oven, Belfast sink, fridge-freezer, dishwasher and wine fridge.
The relaxing bedroom with views of the rear gardens has a wallpapered feature wall, three double-wardrobes, and a king-size bed with hotel-style wall lights, USB sockets and switches.
The brand new, classically-styled bathroom has been tiled, coved and wallpapered (Cole & Son) to create a luxury and functional space including vanity unit, deep-fill bath tub and powerful rainfall shower.
Storage, storage, storage – the Vendors have installed custom, period-style storage throughout the apartment.
