About this property
An extraordinarily quiet, low built house, positioned behind electrically controlled gates and set within a spectacular walled garden, providing the ambience and character of a country house whilst set within central London just minutes from the River, Battersea Park and Thomas’s Battersea school.
Discrete electric gates open to reveal a private driveway within a Courtyard of terraces and with off street parking for four cars and a garage for two cars. The principal rooms overlook the well-established, leafy and very private garden surrounding the house. At the heart of the house is a spectacular wide double height stair hall with beautiful cantilevered stair all lit from above by a roof light.
The principal drawing room has great scale being some 24 ft wide with three pairs of generous French windows opening onto the terrace and garden beyond. The formal dining room is cleverly linked to a discrete servery and pantry which lead to the large family kitchen also with French windows opening onto a west facing terrace. A further family room provides comfortable informal space and secondary stair access to the secondary bedrooms. On the first floor the main stairs opens onto a wide hall and the generous master bedroom with a well fitted dressing room and en suite bathroom. Five further bedrooms for family or guests and four further bathrooms (two en suite) enjoy a bright westerly aspect.
The separate Coach House provides tandem parking for two large cars with accommodation above currently used as a gym and a bedroom together with a bathroom and would make an ideal guest or staff annex.
