Peering above you upon entry to this terrific one double bedroom apartment, you spy an original Victorian stained glass window on the landing, adorned in a ruby red starburst and mottled sapphire blue panels.
Before ascending past this delightful first impression, you’ll find an impressively sized bathroom to your left. Moroccan style grey-and-white tiles make a striking feature here, accompanied by a clawfoot rolltop bathtub and a separate walk-in rainforest shower enclosure. Treading up the carpeted stairway and past an inbuilt ledge (a spot that is perfect for draping down potted English ivy or Golden Pothos to create a curtain of indoor greenery), you arrive at the upper landing. Across the hallway from the inbuilt storage cupboard, you’ll encounter a king size bed, two wooden mirrored wardrobes and a thick grey fabric curtain in the bedroom. Gorgeous original wooden floorboards deck the entirety of the open plan kitchen and reception room next door, filled with natural light from a trio of Gothic-style arched windows. An abundance of exciting features have been cleverly concealed within ivory coloured soft-close cabinets, from the integrated dishwasher and slide-out dual recycling cupboard to the two gloriously smooth pull-out corner drawers. This beautiful space has been furnished with a solid oak dining table with four accompanying chairs, a Scandi-style camel coloured sofa and a matching extra-wide armchair. Further fitted features include the large skylight illuminating butcher block worktops in the kitchen and an original Victorian fireplace with a thick wooden mantle in the reception.
An entrance to local gem and nature reserve Parkland Walk is less than 500ft away, guaranteeing countless Sunday afternoons getting lost among Michaelmas daises and the occasional muntjac deer, perhaps even spotting a man-sized spriggan sculpture, known to locals as the Devil in the Archway and said to have been the inspiration for Stephen King’s short story ‘Crouch End’.
