Perfect for those searching for a new home in London’s West Kensington, Finlay Brewer presents this beautiful five-bedroom townhouse.
Occupying a prime position on Lisgar Terrace in London’s upmarket West Kensington, is a unique and characterful 2,115 sq. ft. five-bedroom family home, which has been expertly designed to blend bright and captivating wall designs with original Victorian interior features to create a trendy country chic look.
Comprising a generous double reception room on the raised ground floor, a library which opens out onto a balcony overlooking the garden, which features a wonderful London Plane tree, this fascinating townhouse is on the market for £2.095 million through local experts Finlay Brewer.
The country chic design blends pastel shades of sofa and soft furnishings with darker antique wooden furniture that stylishly contrasts with the dark oak wood flooring. Throughout the home, patterned wallpaper gives each room a distinctive character and identity, whilst adding a shot of colour to brighten the space.
One of the feature rooms is the double reception on the raised ground floor, with dark blue wallpaper complete with a large repeat pattern of flowers surrounding the two French windows that open onto a balcony that leads down to the large patio garden. This cleverly placed wallpaper, so close to the outside space, invites the outside in and vice versa.
Also opening onto the garden, on the lower ground floor, is the wonderfully spacious kitchen/dining/living room with burnt orange floor tiles and the same flower pattern wallpaper on the rear wall as on the raised ground floor. This area is the hub of the home, stretching the full-length of the property, and has been decorated to create a homely feeling giving the illusion of being within a peaceful remote retreat away from the rigours of busy London life.
The principal bedroom suite is situated on the first floor and leads into an impressive well-proportioned library area
. French windows open onto a railed terrace at the front of the house.
The second and final floor comprises two bedrooms and a bathroom, whilst there is a third room that could be used as an additional bedroom or utilised as a private home office.
Paul Cosgrove, director at Finlay Brewer, said: “This wonderful period house still has many of its original features such as the large tree in the garden to the natural internal archways and cornicing, which have been adapted to fit with the modern interiors. These features from the past add comfort and personality to the home. The countryside chic interiors installed into the home help to blend the rural with the urban interiors.”
“The wonderfully spacious lower ground floor featuring the kitchen/living space creates a perfect area for entertaining and with the luxury of this leading out into the garden, it is the perfect place to be on a hot summer’s evening. This home is perfect for a family looking for their own private retreat in the centre of London.”
Lisgar Terrace is close to good transport links, such as Kensington Overground station and the District line at West Kensington Underground station, with both less than a ten-minute walk away. It is also perfectly located within the catchment of some of the UK’s best schools, including Kensington Primary Academy School and St James Senior Girls’ School.
