The accommodation is presented in crisp, neutral-toned décor, with hardwood floors, enhancing the natural light and flow throughout. The spacious central hallway, lit by a skylight, draws you into the heart of this home: a large open plan breakfasting kitchen and living room, flowing into the private courtyard. This inspired space is lit from above by three large Velux windows, plus a side window and large French doors opening onto the courtyard, enhancing the airy ambience, and creating a perfect indoor/outdoor lifestyle. The room is cleverly zoned by a breakfast bar into distinct areas for relaxing, dining and cooking. The contemporary kitchen incorporates a range of Shaker floor and wall mounted units, in a soft neutral hues (with a quirky “blackboard” painted door), all framed by wood worktops, open shelving and a tiled splashback. The kitchen neatly hides a range of integrated appliances, including an oven, a gas hob, an extractor hood, a dishwasher, and a fridge freezer.
Every aspect of the floor space has been thoughtfully utilised. Off the hall, the cleverly designed storage includes a large walk in cupboard, and additional utility cupboard (with space-saving folding doors), creating a discreet laundry area.
The two generous double bedrooms each offer ample space for freestanding furniture, in addition to large, mirror-fronted wardrobes. Benefiting from the quiet location, bedroom one has a dual courtyard aspect, whilst bedroom two (also boasting a brightly coloured wall and bespoke frieze) is naturally lit by an overhead Velux window. The accommodation is completed by a contemporary family bathroom, with crisp white tiled walls surrounding a bath, with shower over (including a drenching rainwater showerhead), and a matching WC-suite. Finally, there are convenient remote-controlled window blinds, whilst luxurious underfloor heating (via a gas boiler) and double glazing ensures year-round warmth and comfort.
Outside, the patio garden is an easily maintained space, providing a private outdoor haven away from the nearby buzz of the city. Zoned parking is available in the surrounding area.
