This magnificent Queen Anne house, built at the late turn of the 17th century is located in the heart of Bloomsbury, close to the ever popular Lamb’s Conduit Street. Behind the historic, handsome facade lies a substantial family house that has been recently refurbished to an exacting standard. Presented in a fusion of classic and contemporary styling that sympathetically pays homage to the heritage of the house, the craftsmanship, attention to detail and finish is simply exquisite.
There is an abundance of natural light throughout, as each of the generously proportioned principal rooms are illuminated by floor to ceiling sash windows that further enhance the sense of volume one feels from the impressive ceiling heights.
The dual aspect first floor double reception room is stunning, featuring high ceilings, triple sash floor to ceiling windows, inlaid herringbone parquet floor and panelled walls. The room leads discreetly to a fully equipped private bar to the rear and wine store.
The second floor is dedicated to an equally impressive master bedroom suite, with triple sash windows, built-in wardrobes, a separate dressing room with an island dressing table, fully fitted drawers, cupboards and further wardrobe space leading to a sumptuous en-suite bathroom.
Of equal note is the original staircase that immediately features as you enter the house, with its twisted spindles and elegantly crafted handrail, it leads the eye as it gently meanders from floor to floor, past half landing windows that offer an inviting glimpse of the garden.
This house offers incredible VERSATILITY.
In its current arrangement, the accommodation provides 2 x double and 1 x single reception room/s, four lavish bedrooms, three fabulous bathrooms, with a gym, sauna and bar which is perfectly suited to the needs of the current owners. However, with just a few minor modifications, the house could be transformed into a more conventional layout, that could easily provide 6 or possibly even 7 bedrooms, able to satisfy every conceivable demand of modern family living.
The south facing garden provides the perfect back drop to the house, with an incredible feature living wall and artificial lawn framed by contemporary multi-level decking and large planted pots. As it is accessed from the kitchen, the garden provides a perfect place from which to enjoy a spot of Al Fresco dining or simply relax and unwind with a glass of wine at the end of the day.
