GRAND VICTORIAN FAMILY HOME IN THE HEART OF BROOK GREEN

Located in the heart of sought after Brook Green and less than 100m from the border of Kensington & Chelsea, this impressive Victorian townhouse offers proportions rarely seen in the area, a wealth of original period features, seven bedrooms and a stunning walled garden. The property is for sale with leading West London agent Finlay Brewer for £3.65m.

Located on a quiet residential street, Addison Gardens, this elegant red brick home spans five floors totalling 3,141 square foot. apx. The raised ground floor houses a spectacular double drawing room. During the 1800’s, this would have traditionally been arranged as a “front parlour”, for special occasions and receiving guests (mainly the domain of females); and a “back parlour” or dining room, the preserve of the men. Now opened out into one room, this lateral space extends over 30ft and features the two original fireplaces, bay windows to the front and views of the walled garden to the rear.

With the division of classes in the Victorian era, kitchens were placed on the lower ground floors along with a scullery and staff quarters. This space has been transformed into a spacious open plan kitchen/dining room with direct access to the beautifully presented garden. Walled on all sides and secluded, the south-west facing garden is a tranquil haven in the heart of West London.

The first floor is home to a spacious master bedroom with Juliet balcony, bathroom and an intimate alcove featuring original stained-glass windows. Mosaic stained glass became very popular during the Victoria era, partly due to Augustus Pugin’s regular use of the style; including his design of numerous stained-glass windows at Westminster Abbey. The two upper floors of this house offer further comprise six bedrooms and two bathrooms.

Paul Cosgrove, Director at Finlay Brewer, comments; “This part of Brook Green remains highly sought after. Its proximity to Kensington and Chelsea and the village atmosphere of the green itself, combined with the beautiful Victorian properties architecture, continue to attract buyers from far and wide. We expect this property will be of interest to families, who can take advantage of the large number of bedrooms and convert some to playrooms, dressing rooms etc. as necessary.”

“The width of this house is also a huge advantage. Most homes in the area have narrower proportions, meaning that properties of the same square footage often feel considerably smaller. With this property, even the lower ground and top floors have brilliant ceiling heights and plenty of light”.

Addison Gardens is part of the original Holland Estate, which spread over 200 acres surrounding nearby Holland House from the 1700’s. This popular residential street is situated close to independent shops, restaurants, gastro pubs, farmers’ markets and retail offerings of Westfield London. Local tube stations include Hammersmith Broadway, Shepherd’s Bush and Kensington Olympia.

The property is on the market at £3,650,000 with viewings strictly by appointment only. For further information, visit: www.finlaybrewer.co.uk
