Take a walk down Sunderland Terrace and feel captivated by the rows of period homes, blossoming magnolia trees and its sense of peacefulness amidst a bustling city. Past a portico-fronted door and entrance hall, enter a spacious light-filled reception room. Used as a dedicated dining space, it harmonises old and new; heritage cornicing, and a traditional fireplace provide the perfect backdrop for entertainment around the glossy marble dining table. Double doors connect this room with the adjacent kitchen – a light-filled space with sleek countertops and a central island-cum-breakfast bar. Morning coffee on the breakfast stools. The hallway leads to a terrace with sun loungers and overhead heaters – ideal when nights draw out, or head down to the lush decked garden below. Hosting? Fire up the barbecue. A Sonos sound system is fitted throughout the home too.
Upstairs, a second reception room is wrapped in pale sage green walls, with two sets of French doors – casting natural light across the high ceilings and plush sofas. A south-facing balcony is your own private sun-trap, with a table and chairs overlooking the blossom-filled street.
The bright master suite is spread out on the second floor, framed with floor-to-ceiling wardrobes on one side and vast sash windows on the other. Head through to the striking en-suite bathroom, with a monochrome dual vanity and a free-standing bath that invites long, relaxing soaks.
A study and two further bedrooms are located on the third floor, one of which contains both a double and single bed. At the top of the house, a fully-equipped kitchen, comfortable sofa bed and south-facing roof terrace makes for the perfect self-contained studio. A further bedroom and bathroom can be found on the subterranean level.
