This very handsome, double fronted detached period house exudes period character and charm, whilst also providing everything that modern family life demands.
Originating from the time of William 1Vth and with later period additions, Scarth House is ideally located on the preferred west side of this highly prized, private, tree-lined avenue.
The property presents flawlessly, having been the subject of an imaginative and no expense spared refurbishment and upgrade in recent years; The house having been in the same ownership for 29 years.
At garden level, the designer kitchen/breakfast/family room is particularly light and spacious, by virtue of its large windows, dual aspect and conservatory. It affords direct access to, and views over, the wonderful, mature west facing (110ft) walled garden, with its handsome pavilion; ideal as a yoga retreat, family room or, as in recent years, a very fine studio.
A further reception room serves as a TV/family room and also gives direct access on to and views over the garden. There is both a garage and utility room, with side access - ideal for dogs and young children, giving the house even more of that elusive country house in London feel. A W.C. and cellar/wine room round off the accommodation at this level.
At raised ground level, there are two elegant formal reception rooms, leading off the beautifully refined reception hall. The ceilings are unusually high, affording excellent volume of living space and fabulous quality of light, with beautiful features and fireplaces all in situ.
These formal reception rooms are both dual aspect and the large windows give very fine views over the garden to rear and tree lined Putney Park Avenue to the front; An elegant drawing room also has French doors leading out onto a west-facing balcony, which is a lovely feature, affording a fine view over the garden and beyond; the formal study is also beautifully appointed and refined.
The first floor is given over, in its entirety, to a fabulous principal bedroom suite and a further small, cosy, study to the rear of the house.
The principal bedroom suite has a sumptuous bathroom with its large walk-in shower and luxuriant, free standing bath. There is also ample storage. Again, these rooms are dual aspect and the large windows provide excellent quality of light throughout.
The second floor has two good sized, well balanced double bedrooms which are very well served by a beautifully appointed shower room.
In addition to the main hub of the house, as above, there are 2 bedrooms set apart from the main and well served by their own en suite shower rooms. Both are accessed by their own staircases and are ideal as stand alone accommodation for long term guests or staff, but have also been used, in recent years as self contained family accommodation to teenage children. Thus accommodating intergenerational/independent family living with great aplomb, whilst also allowing for a variety of different uses.
To the front of the house, there is a pretty carriage driveway, affording excellent off-street parking and a suitably handsome approach to this very unusual property.View payable Stamp Duty for this property
