The perfect presentation
Catherine Golding tells of a beautifully presented, stucco-fronted Grade II Listed terraced house – part of a Georgian terrace dating back to the 1820s
In 2015 our family met new neighbours. They were moving in “as soon as some essential work was carried out”. This consisted of the kitchen and bathroom being ripped out and new creations installed. Fast forward to the present day and those residents have moved on, new owners have been seen – but not as often as their builders. What work is being carried out now? “Just a new kitchen. And a change to the bathroom”.
This is a story repeated all over the country but you get the sense that it may be different with this home in Belsize Park, NW3.
The property – which still retains a plethora of original features – has been meticulously restored, extended and totally refurbished by the current owners. And it’s a job well done as you can see; its layout is superb, the rooms are stunning and the presentation is just perfect.
Agents Marcus Parfitt must be delighted to have the chance to offer what is an extremely rare opportunity to buy one of only a handful of these types of delightful homes.
Arranged over four floors the house extends to approximately 2,900 square feet of bright and spacious accommodation. In addition, it benefits from a 75’ south-east facing private terrace and garden (far left).
The lower ground floor has a family room, guest WC and a simply stunning kitchen/dining room (main image). The ground floor houses a reception room and drawing room (below) – the latter with access to a terrace. Over the top floor floors are five bedrooms, a family bathroom and a shower room.
With all the aforementioned positives, I am sure Marcus Parfitt won’t mind us saying that the successful sale of this property won’t be the toughest task they’ll have this year…
