This handsome house has an imposing Victorian façade of exposed bricks and original sash windows. The property is set back from the street by front garden with hedges either side and a path leading to the original front door which is protected by porch with white pillars and detailed masonry above.

Inside you'll find two elegant reception rooms to your right. Separated if desired, by original double doors, the rooms each retain original period fireplaces complimented by beautifully sanded and varnished original wooden floorboards. The deep skirting boards and coving have all been retained and the room offers high ceilings with plenty of space to relax. The front reception has a large sash bay window which illuminates this room with natural light, the rear room has French doors leading out to the garden, both still retain their original working shutters.

Along the hall you'll find the staircase splits and invites you into a long kitchen dining room which has more original floorboards. The stairs also lead down to the cellar which is great for additional storage. The kitchen has been divided into a dining area nearest to the entrance followed by the kitchen to the rear. The kitchen has plenty of stylish grey wall and base mounted units on either side of the room with a worktop above housing the oven, hob with extractor above and a sink that sits nicely under a window looking out onto the garden.
There is a handy guest toilet and utility room just off the kitchen at the back of the house, its been plumbed in for a washing machine with space for tumble dryer.

The garden has been beautifully maintained by the current owner. There is a large patio area closest to the house which is surrounded by mature plants and shrubs. Beyond this is a central stone path which is boarded by beds of plants and flowers leading to a circular pond that is surrounded by lawn.

Take the stairs up to the first floor to find two huge bedrooms at the front of the house, the main bedroom spans the whole width of the house and offers a feature fireplace, floorboards that have been painted white, a fitted cupboard in the alcove and two large sash windows for natural light.
The other bedroom also has fitted cupboards in the alcoves, laminate flooring and a pretty original sash window that overlooks the garden.

At the back of the house are two further bedrooms and a bathroom. The first bedroom is the smallest and would make a good children’s bedroom or study. Adjacent is the bathroom where there is a white three-piece suite with shower over the bath, a vanity unit under the sink and a heated towel rail. A frosted double-glazed window sits above the toilet which allows for natural light and ventilation. At the end of the hall there is a charming double bedroom which offers the best views of the garden and far beyond through a delightful original sash window.

There is also a final bedroom on the second floor which has been created by converting the loft, it offers plenty of space and far-reaching views to Canary Wharf and beyond through skylights in the roof.
