Why you’ll like it:

Tucked away between the chic shops, cinema and cafés of Preston Circus, the leafy acreage of Preston Park and London Road Station this secret enclave of pretty painted terraces is a sought after destination by people of all ages- and with a friendly community and organic farmers market nearby every Saturday it is easy to see why its appeal continues to grow. Outside, this Victorian beauty has irresistible charm from the bold bays to the original tiled path to the door, and inside delivers the best of both worlds blending elegant period features with discreet contemporary tweaks.

Inside, the hallway is instantly restful with gracious proportions and original plasterwork high overhead, whilst good grade oak flooring gives guests and children free reign as it flows into a sunny living/dining room to enjoy with friends and family. Classically beautiful and inviting in all seasons with a broad bay almost filling the front wall and French doors at the back to frame leafy views, guests can relax by an open fire or dine in rare seclusion enjoying the garden at any time of year.

Stylish and sociable with plenty of space for a family table, the kitchen is lined with windows and has a door to the garden, ideal for an al fresco lifestyle. With a slate floor and solid wood surfaces it is user friendly and it is a modern classic with cream units providing ample storage and a deep cupboard just outside to keep everything clutter free. The high-end Whirlpool gas hob and oven are integrated beneath a Franke hood, there is plumbing for a washing machine and designated space for a tall fridge freezer.

Outside, the decking of the broad side return wraps around to the southwest side of the house to catch the last of the days rays and deliver a special spot in which to delight in the glory of the surrounding gardens which are everchanging. With light and power for parties and a tap for the plants, broad steps take you down to a large, pebbled area sheltered by walls, designed for ease of maintenance and child and pet secure.
Returning inside, at the top of the stairs a luxury bathroom has a spa-like feel with twin Velux in the vaulted roofline and a window framing a sea of green – so you don’t need shutters. Large enough for both a bath with a wand attachment and separate dual head shower in wet room style, meticulous attention to detail extends to the large eos hand basin which rests on dark wood, and a tall airing cupboard conceals plumbing and power for a utility machine.

On the first floor and quiet at the back, a double bedroom has a verdant vista – so it isn’t directly overlooked – and calm refuge with beautiful decoration it is ready for your move. At the front, the generous second double room is a peaceful retreat with a designer finish, large enough to be used as the principal if you have a young child in the room next door. With plenty of appeal, it has fitted wardrobes on each side of a handsome fireplace and a bank of windows to bring in the morning sunlight. Private and peaceful at the top, the 2017 extension has created a serene sanctuary with a fabulous en suite shower room where guests will feel like VIP’s and unwind looking across an unusually lush view to an open cityscape which sweeps across famous landmarks like the striped legs of the Duke of York’s cinema, and which glitters at night.

Agent says:
“This house offers the best of all worlds – it’s quiet but convenient for the city, in a good school catchment area close to Preston Park and the sea, and it’s ready to move into.”

Owner’s secret:
“The house has a unique position within the street backing onto gardens so it is very quiet and private and we can sit on the sun deck and relax in peace and quiet without being seen. All of the rooms are bright and we love the period character in the reception and space in the kitchen diner. At the top, the bedroom doesn’t feel like an extension, it blends in with the rest of the house and the views from it are really special. Although we are looking forward to the next step, we shall be sad to leave our home (as will our friends and family who love visiting it) and the street which has its own little community within the wider community.
