A dramatic entrance sets the scene, with black floors, high white ceilings, elaborate cornicing and a beautiful staircase enticing you to explore. The jaw-dropping kitchen and diner spans the length of the building, from the elegant terrace street front to the tranquil walled garden to the rear. Slabs of sparkling black granite worktops complete a streamlined white fitted kitchen. Along one flank of units is a 5 ring gas hob, an electric oven, a dishwasher and a Magimix coffee maker. Fitted under a vast island is another wide oven, a microwave, 2 small fridges and plenty of storage, along with 4 bar stools. A splendid original decorative marble fireplace has granite topped alcove cupboards on either side, filled with crockery. An additional fitted store cupboard is stocked with cooking utensils. At the other end of the room, 2 large sash windows with their original working shutters overlook the beautiful garden. A large French style dining table with traditional bentwood chairs seats 16. Two tall cabinets display a range of glassware, and a large French dresser and sparkling chandelier add to the elegant atmosphere. A Sonos Bluetooth speaker connects to phones and other devises for music and a phone is provided for local calls. A half landing lobby leads to a cloakroom and the garden entrance. The pretty cream stone floored cloakroom has a hand-basin with storage under and a WC. Outside, a lovely walled town garden has been landscaped with pleached limes, box balls and a moore-esque sculpture. Two large stone tables with stone benches seats 16. A footpath though the shrub boarders leads to a gate, with access to a gravel path to Royal Victoria Park. Within the park are tennis courts, crazy golf, a large children's play area, ice-skating in the winter and hot air balloons taking off in the summer. The Basement Twin Bedroom, Bathroom, Entertainment rooms, Utility. A pretty bedroom with 2 large windows at garden level has a voyagers theme, with two single 3' beds in cast iron bed frames and trunks for storage. An antique chest has drawers and hanging space is provided in a built-in cupboard in the neighbouring living room. A very spacious, fully tiled contemporary bathroom, has a large walk-in shower with rainfall shower-head along with a generous hand-basin and WC. A shelf over provides space for toiletries. A big entertainments room in the basement has a large TV with DVD and Sonos sound system. Decorative sideboards have a small selection of films and games. A large ‘L'-shaped sofa seats 5 with further seating for 4 on a range of occasional seating. A Large alcove cupboard has shelves and a hanging rail for storage. In the lobby to the vaults is a large fridge and separate wine chiller. There is a separate basement entrance with steep stone steps leading to pavement level. The vaults make a great bar and dance floor with a large dresser for drinks, 2 bar tables and 4 stools, sonos sound system and disco lights. A second vault has a utility with smart fitted units and worktop. These house a washing machine, separate dryer, a freezer, a sink and storage. This space doubles as a recreation area with table-football, 2 lounge chairs and a TV. The First Floor Living Room, Triple Bedroom This level was always designed to impress, with lofty ceilings, 3 huge sash windows in which to see and be seen (complete with working shutters), a large marble decorative fireplace and ornate mirror reflecting a glittering chandelier. Now an elegant and comfortable room with original stripped dark wood floors and linen furnishings. A large ‘L'-shaped sofa to seat 5 is beside another large sofa for 4. There are also 2 large French style armchairs, generous footstools and a decorative sideboard with sculptural lamps. In an alcove is a large TV with Sonos sound system. The with-drawing room, with its elegant wedding doors and original marble fireplace, has now become a very spacious bedroom for up to 3-4 people. It has been furnished in French style with a grand 6' double bed and a 3' single day bed which can be converted into a full 6' double daybed. There are two large chests of drawers, a large wall-mounted TV and a dressing table and stool.
