Amid the bustling metropolis of the capital city, even the most ardent Londoners can sometimes find themselves longing for the peace and quiet of the country. But for many, the pull of London living, with the fast commute and wealth of culture, prove to be too much to leave behind. Fortunately, a romantic inner-city cottage has come onto the market to provide the perfect compromise between town and country. Located in West London’s most desirable urban village, Brackenbury, the 1,173 sq. ft. three-bedroom home is on the market with Finlay Brewer for £1.275 million.

The draw of a more rural life can be strong, with recent research suggesting that 2017 saw the highest number of Londoners leaving the city since 2007. But for those who enjoy the London lifestyle, there are certainly quieter enclaves of the city which provide the relaxed ambience offered in the country, with the rural-style architecture to match.

The property on Cardross Street features a picturesque brick front exterior, covered in climbing plants, with a small front garden. A welcoming entrance hall leads to a light-filled sitting room. The double reception features period cornicing and an original Victorian fireplace, with French windows opening onto the westerly facing garden.

The remainder of the ground floor includes a small kitchen leading to another spacious room, ideal for more informal quality time with family. Large windows are complemented by a second set of French windows, leading to the home’s paved garden complete with pond.

On the first floor, the full-width master bedroom features large windows and copious storage. There is a second bedroom to the rear of the first floor, and an additional ensuite bedroom on the second floor, with wide-ranging vistas of the local landscape.

Brackenbury village is known for its friendly community spirit, with a renowned local butcher and other independent retailers and eateries close by. Homes on Cardross Street also benefit from their proximity to Brackenbury Primary School and John Betts Primary School, both rated ‘outstanding’ in recent Ofsted reports. The home is a seven minute walk from Goldhawk Road station (Circle and Hammersmith & City lines), a 10 minute walk from Ravenscourt Park tube station (District line) and a 12 minute walk from Hammersmith tube station (Hammersmith & City, District, Piccadilly and Circle lines).
