A much larger than average three bedroom end-terraced Victorian home situated in Clarendon Park.

Description

A sophisticated colour palette lends depth and warmth to this strikingly renovated three-bedroom house in Clarendon Park. Situated at the end of a row of Victorian terraces, the home has undergone a substantial programme of refurbishment in recent years, now well-configured for modern-day living, characterised by quarry-tiled flooring and cast-iron fireplaces. Sitting in the centre of Clarendon Park, the house is well-placed to enjoy all that the suburb has to offer, with a vast array of boutique bars, independent coffee shops, and restaurants.

Entry is through to the principle reception room, embellished in a rich dark blue tone, pairing with the engineered hardwood oak flooring and cast-iron feature fireplace with a mosaic hearth, making a stunning focal point. Paying homage to the Victorian era, newly fitted double-glazed sash windows to the side aspect flood the house with natural light, feeding through to the open-plan living/dining kitchen area found in the centre of the plan. Quarry-tiled flooring and a rich teal green colour palette pair effortlessly, while a second large double-glazed newly refurbished sash window can be found to the side aspect, providing delightful views onto an extensive East-facing garden. The space found under the staircase has been utilised to provide further storage. A clever alternation and further extension have, in turn, curated a truly stunning shaker-style breakfast kitchen with an open aspect. With oak surfaces, a vast array of integrated appliances to include a four-ring SMEG gas cylinder hob, slim-line dishwasher, fridge-freezer, and sufficient eye and wall-level base units, the kitchen is tastefully designed, well-configured for entertaining. Modern spotlights, double-glazed windows, and wooden doors to the side aspect make the space both bright and airy. The former brick-built outbuilding has now also been reconfigured to curate a well-appointed utility room homing the washing machine and downstairs w/c with mosaic-inspired flooring, presented in excellent condition throughout.

The first floor has two double bedrooms and a newly fitted, most spectacular, three-piece family bathroom. The larger of the two bedrooms is found at the front of the plan and has a wonderful quality of a large sash window to the front aspect and newly fitted wool carpets. A smooth fire surround rests on a sleek hearth with sufficient space for all relevant furniture. A second bedroom is centrally positioned, boasting stripped white-washed timber flooring, a cast-iron feature fireplace, and double-glazed windows to the side aspect overlooking the rear garden. An honourable mention of this fabulous home is the family bathroom, found to the far end of the first floor. With impeccable attention to detail, the space has had a complete transformation and includes parquet-inspired vinyl flooring, a low flush w/c, modern vanity unit, and a separate bath with a separate airing cupboard housing the Biasi Riva Plus boiler, installed in 2017. A second flight of stairs opens to a very clever loft conversion introducing the master bedroom; beautifully presented with the inclusion of dual-aspect VELUX windows with far-reaching views of the city. Every inch of this room has been considered with additional storage found towards the left-hand side of the space.

Outside, a low-maintenance, impeccably landscaped, and much larger than most East-facing garden is a standout feature of the property. Mainly paved with a gravelled seating area, the space offers sufficient space for alfresco dining but most importantly, potential for further extension if necessary. Readily available on-street parking can be found directly outside the property or on nearby roads. Boasting a little over 1000 square feet of living accommodation and offered with the added benefit of No Upwards Chain, early viewing really is essential to truly appreciate the space and overall finish the home has to offer.

Vendor comments:

" There are many aspects of the house which attracted us to buy it, particularly the Victorian features, such as the pretty red brick, the quarry tiled flooring, large sash-windows, high ceilings and cornicing. The larger plot of the end terrace that was built to fill the remaining land gives us the surprisingly huge internal space and larger garden. The garden is something we have cherished over our time here, it is an ideal sun trap, feels peaceful and is private as we are not really overlooked. The bright attic conversion has been our master bedroom, the VELUX skylights cast spectacular sun light patterns across the angular ceiling and chimney breast, it's like the outside world giving us ever-changing artwork in our bedroom. It's been great having two additional generously sized bedrooms as our friends and family feel very comfortable when they come to visit. We have cherished the opportunity to renovate the house in a sensitive and thoughtful way, while putting our stamp on it, decorating it to reflect our joyful time spent here. The location of the house has become it's crowning glory. We are on a quieter road, just off Clarendon Park Road and around two corners to the bustling cafe culture, restaurants, bars and shops on Queens Road. We could honestly write ten pages about how much we have loved living here. It has been an incredible six years! "
