A Regency style villa which is unusual in that all the period features have not been modified. These include a beautiful staircase with curving balustrade, ceilings with ornate mouldings, and, working fireplaces. In addition, many windows have original shutters.
The house has a carriage drive way with a grand formal entrance and an additional lower ground entrance shared with the annexe. There is off street parking for five cars and mature shrubbery creating a pretty outlook from front of the house.
Raised Ground Floor:
A wide hallway leads you to an elegant double reception with full length sash windows to the front and balcony doors to the rear. Matching fire places, combined with original mouldings and high ceilings create fabulous entertaining space. Next door, linked with double doors is a study, also with doors to the balcony. The balcony has pretty wrought iron railings which are interspersed with wisteria.
A link has been created off the hall to the coach house to give an additional bedroom, bathroom and sitting room on the first floor and a study and a workshop on the ground floor. The coach house is totally self contained with access from the driveway and it's own front door. It is excellent guest accommodation, an annexe for older children/nanny or for those working from home.
Lower Ground Floor:
The kitchen is at the front of the property with a utility room and natural larder for additional storage. Next door is a dining room with a serving hatch and fire place. A conservatory has been added to the rear of the house creating a wonderful additional reception room. Off the hallway is a large wine cellar with floor to ceiling racks. There is also a study/bedroom and bathroom on the lower ground floor and access to the passage way between the house and coach house.
The master bedroom has an en suite bathroom and a large dressing room overlooking the garden with fitted storage either side and an attractive feature fireplace. In addition there is a cloakroom next to a single bedroom.
The top floor has fabulous views towards the city and benefits from high ceilings and good natural light. There are two double bedrooms, a bathroom and a study. The house is one of a very few on Castelnau with period features in tact and original shutters on most windows.
The 87ft garden has been carefully planted with a variety of mature trees and shrubs and a plentiful array of bulbs. There is a wonderfully sheltered terrace off the conservatory.View payable Stamp Duty for this property
