A stunning, spacious and beautifully presented maisonette situated on the favoured garden side of the quiet, tree-lined crescent Philbeach Gardens. Perfectly proportioned with designer kitchen, dining and drawing room / entertainment and art space on the raised ground floor, with direct access to the gardens, and three large bedrooms plus study arranged on the lower floor.
The entrance to the property on the ground floor takes you through a welcoming hallway, with a view through the kitchen to the garden. Adjacent is the stunning double reception, an outstanding feature of this lovely home. A perfect entertaining space, it benefits from high (3.4 metre) ceilings, clean, neutral decor, wide panelled oak wood floors and an imposing south facing bay window.
This beautifully proportioned room is large enough to comfortably house dedicated drawing room and dining areas, from which the natural light to the rear draws the eyes to a set of French doors leading out to your own private garden. A few steps further, through the hedged archway and gate, lead you to the park-like open spaces of Philbeach Gardens, a true hidden treasure (one of the largest gardens in Kensington) which provides instant green calm in the centre of London. This set up allows easy indoor-outdoor living and the extensive gardens which are exclusively for use of Philbeach Gardens residents, include a grass tennis court (summer only), beautifully maintained gardens all year round, a herb garden for your use, child friendly areas and secluded private corners perfect for a quiet read.
Upon returning to the reception room from the garden (your own manicured hedge offers privacy from the communal gardens), you find a fully integrated modern kitchen with a silestone bench top, naturally set up for entertaining. The kitchen setting offers a natural divide from the dining area but is semi-open plan making it ideal for cooking whilst managing a family or hosting a party.
The upper floor connects via a wide stair case to three large double bedrooms arranged on the lower floor, a large bathroom (with an Alessi 'tuna' basin, free standing 'Barcelona' bath, waterfall tap, overhead rain shower and underfloor heating) and further down the hallway, a spacious walk-in shower room with additional WC. There is a fourth room which can be accessed by its own entrance and allows the flexibility of a study / temporary fourth bedroom or dedicated utility room. In addition to a laundry area housing washing machine and dryer, there are two more rooms for storage or potential development space, found in two demised vaults that are internally accessed via this fourth room.
Philbeach Gardens is one of the few remaining secrets of the area, an idyllic haven more attuned to a country setting than a central London residence. In addition to the areas many shops, supermarkets, restaurants and other amenities it is close to exceptional transport links including Earls Court tube station (District and Piccadilly lines), West Brompton Overground Line / National Rail, bus routes and High Street Kensington and Old Brompton Road are only a short walk away.
