As mentioned above Vicarage Gate is a quiet cul-de-sac located between Kensington High Street to the south and Notting Hill Gate to the north, both of which have Tube Stations and are within reasonable walking distance. The house is very conveniently located for local shopping amenities in Kensington Church Street, with a wider range of shops including Whole Foods, Marks & Spencer and Waitrose on the High Street.
In addition, there is access close by to Kensington Gardens (western section of Hyde Park) off Kensington Church Street. Kensington is a well-known and highly regarded neighbourhood within the Royal Borough of Kensington & Chelsea with an excellent range of amenities including good transport options, a large library, a world famous concert hall (The Royal Albert Hall), restaurants and schools in the local vicinity.
One of a pair of adjoining houses built in the 1960's in the classical style, this is an attractive non-basement townhouse which is arranged over only 3 floors and benefits from both a rear garden and garage, as well as being in an enviable position. Although it is in a quiet cul-de-sac, it is short walk from both Kensington Gardens and Kensington High Street.
The house which is now in need of modernisation has lots of potential. The Ground Floor currently consists of a dining/sitting room to the front, and a separate kitchen, study and conservatory to the rear, but this latter arrangement could be considerably improved if the rooms were opened up. This has been done in its twin house next door to create a combined kitchen/dining/family room in one large open plan space opening on to the garden. The garage, which can be entered on foot through a door at the end of the garden, is accessed by driving the car through an arch to the right of the house.
The house is being sold, subject to probate, which is about to be applied for. We understand that the property qualifies for enfranchisement under the Leasehold Reform Act 1967, subject to a premium to be negotiated by the new owner.
