An impressive four-bedroom townhouse brimming with character, with a charming walled garden spanning 80 feet.
The smart frontage, wrought iron railings and immaculate topiary hedging of this Holland Park townhouse give a glimpse of the glorious interiors that greet you on the other side of the olive green door. The raised ground floor entrance gives way to a large, open-plan double-reception room, flanked either side by carved marble fireplaces and with polished wood floors and intricate ceiling cornicing running throughout. In the front half, a study with built-in bookcases and a desk looking out onto the tree-lined street below. The second half: a more formal area to receive guests with an adjoining room that opens out onto a terrace. To the rear of the house, a light-flooded glass roof sunroom. Room for the whole family to relax in with views overlooking the 80-foot-long walled garden. Venture outside to this beautifully landscaped space for al fresco dinners on the rear terrace, under the sun-dappled leaves of the silver birch trees. A charming playhouse sits in the middle of the lawn, while a bench seating area in the shadow of a large fig tree is just outside the doors to the lower ground floor snug. Retreat en masse to this cosy room on rainy afternoons for movie marathons. Next door, the large shaker-style kitchen sets the scene for hearty suppers cooked on a Lacanche range, enjoyed around the dining table in front of a crackling fire. Tucked away to the side is a guest cloakroom and utility room.
Upstairs: the master bedroom with wooden-shuttered sash windows, floor-to-ceiling fitted storage and a large sleigh bed. Its family-sized en suite is a spacious affair: a twin sink vanity, double shower and large freestanding tub with a skylight to soak under the stars. On this floor, another two bedrooms. One with a dressing table and a desk – an ideal child's room; the other with a bed under a large skylight. Both rooms are serviced by a shower room. On the second floor, a guest suite in the eaves with a feature fireplace – an inviting space kept bright with windows to three aspects. In the corner, a clawfoot roll top bath and vanity.
