There are an excellent variety of local shops, cafes, delicatessens and restaurants close by in Brook Green and Hammersmith as well as Westfield Shopping Centre with its extensive retail, restaurant, leisure and transport facilities.
The location is renowned for some of London's most sought-after schools including St Paul's Girls School, Godolphin, Latymer, Larmenier and Bute House.
This is an unusually wide 6 bedroom family home with high ceilings, a wonderful feeling of space and lovely square rooms, overlooking a newly landscaped 62' southerly garden with summerhouse and trampoline at the rear. The property was fully refurbished five years ago by the current owners with a focus on embedding modern technology while preserving period features and incorporating lighting design to make a timeless family home for their three children.
The bespoke kitchen/breakfast/family room spans the width of the lower ground floor and opens through triple doors onto the garden which is initially paved with plenty of space for a large table and chairs, with steps up to the expansive low maintenance lawned area. The garden has electricity and water at front and rear and the summerhouse could easily be used as or upgraded to an alternative home office. There is a separate lower ground floor entrance and a utility room with space for chest freezer and drinks fridge, as well as cellar storage to the front of this floor. The terraced area at the front of the property has a bespoke unit for bike, bin and log storage for the wood burning stove. On this floor off the utility room is also a self-contained bedroom/studio with en suite and kitchenette which has access to the lower ground floor entrance to give great privacy to a nanny/au pair or lodger.
The raised ground floor has an impressive hallway entrance and two receptions with original fire places (one gas and one log burning stove) and 12ft ceilings. One is used as a sitting room and overlooks the garden, the other is currently used as a formal dining room/study with hidden fitted office. The house is completely Cat 6 wired for internet and modern communications enabling easy home working. The reception rooms can also be opened front to back as required via reclaimed original Victorian sliding doors. Also on this floor is a large boot room with bench seating, shelving, hanging space and ample storage for the whole family. There is also a large cupboard for hiding scooters, and hidden IT racking for the house's computer and media centre.
The house has a large master suite on the first floor overlooking the garden, with his and hers walk through dressing room/wardrobes, double basins and double ended roll top bath as well as walk in shower. There is a twin guest bedroom and bathroom on this floor. On the second floor, there are three further bedrooms and a family bathroom with double sinks and shower as well as bath. The street, being one way, is amazingly quiet and all bedrooms overlook the garden other than one on the second floor which has a lovely balcony overlooking Gunterstone Road. There is excellent and significant loft storage accessed by a fixed stair case from the top floor (secured for children) and large, remote operated Velux windows (with blackout blinds as needed) to the roof space allowing light to flood down the stairs.
This substantial house of approximately 3300 sq ft combines contemporary style with traditional features, extensive and thoughtful storage and a great balance of bedroom accommodation to living/entertaining space in addition to a fantastic garden - A MUST SEE!
