About this property
An incredibly unique former Vicarage available to the open market for only the third time since the property was built in 1844.
A detached double fronted property sat on a substantial plot and totalling over 4,000 sq ft with six to seven bedrooms, four bathrooms, quadruple aspect, ample grounds, a secure gated entrance, and off street parking. While the property is grand and imposing, the sheer width of the plot, size of the grounds, the entrance and parking testament to this, it is almost paradoxically discreet given the ability to drive in, a rarity at this price point in London. The double fronted nature of the property allows for a vast amount of lateral space with the square footage spread across just four floors. The charming exterior with living walls and arched doorway recognise the buildings former life, and the interior too stays true to the period grandeur one would expect from a former Church building. The raised ground floor offers original oak wooden flooring, which were removed from the property to be restored before being re-instated, high ceilings, sash windows, grand stone fireplaces, and ornate cornicing. The cornicing was sympathetically restored by Stevensons of Norwich who are responsible for the maintenance of the same at royal buildings to include Buckingham Palace. The kitchen is handmade and bespoke with soft close drawers, Miele appliances, an AGA range cooker, and kitchen island. There is access here, and from three other points internally, to the wrap around garden. On the north side of the floor there is a sitting room with the same period features retained and bay sash window with green vista over the gardens. The majority of the bedrooms are upstairs with the principal suite located on the first floor. The bedroom overlooks St Peters Church and boasts a terrace; there is a bathroom and walk in wardrobe with freestanding tub too. This floor is home to a further family bathroom and a brilliantly sized study with more period features. The top floor houses three further bedrooms and another bathroom. The lower ground floor is multi-purpose and is currently set up as two guest bedrooms, bathroom, utility room, wine cellar, gym, and has ample storage. There is a separate access point from this floor, it would work well as a self-contained unit or staff accommodation. A once in a generation opportunity to purchase an outstanding unit, the specifics of which are seldom available in London.
The Vicarage sits at the north side of Mortimer Road overlooking St Peters Church and De Beauvoir Square. It benefits from many nearby fabulous shops, restaurants, and The De Beauvoir Deli. It is within easy reach of Upper Street and there are numerous bus routes to the City and the West End via Southgate Road. Transport links are also available at Haggerston Station (0.3mi) allowing for effortless access across the capital and to International connections at Kings Cross, City Airport, and Heathrow.
