About this property
This end-of-terrace Victorian house, circa 2002 Sq' – 186.01 SqM, is an unparalleled Brackenbury Village family home that could grace the pages of any interiors magazine. The property is ideally positioned being end-of-terrace and with a south facing garden - and ideally located being in a quiet cul-de-sac at the end of this much sought-after residential road.
Offering four bedrooms and two bathrooms across three floors, the house has been the subject of extensive and detailed ‘back to brick’ renovation, with a lateral brick conversion into what was once an unused garage space, creating a uniquely wider front of house living space. The attention to detail paid to every space and the custom finish and design by the interior design owners and married couple, create a property that is simply outstanding.
The whole house, in particular its ground floor living space with its unique reception and entertaining area wrapped around an internal garden, is rarely seen in contemporary Brackenbury Village homes and Hammersmith houses. This Anglo-Mediterranean concept on the ground floor is accessed via an integral fourteen meter wraparound sliding door system, which when fully opened onto the flush garden can allow for a lifestyle of both outside and inside acting as one. The hallway opens onto the heart of the home – a magnificent west facing 6m x 7m reception room, a south facing dining area with a built-in upholstered banquette seating, and a bespoke chef’s kitchen with an Italian marble work top whose natural pattern has even been book-ended at the joins. This is all finished off with a commercial strength extractor fan above a flush fitted Miele hob. A breakfast bar & island - hosting more high-end integrated appliances is in the centre of the kitchen. There is also a double pantry with a marble worktop and a double utility cupboard. A contemporary WC with wall panelling and antique brass finishing completes the ground floor internal footprint.
The outdoor spaces are finished in large sandstone pathing and dimmable lighting, plus a fully permeable ‘Easigrass’ central garden with a three-meter flowerbed and an olive tree backed by a slatted trellis with jasmine climbers. Eight meters of newly forged Victorian-style black railings and a salvaged mature Wisteria decorate the new front of the house.
On the two upper floors there are four bedrooms, a large fully equipped bathroom plus an ensuite shower room with a large Velux making it very bright. Two of these bedrooms are designed to both be considered principal bedrooms. With one opening onto the ensuite shower room and French doors opening at the back - and the other opening onto a bespoke walk-in wardrobe. Both bathroom and shower room are full of character with understated marble tiles, handmade wall panelling, a cast-iron bathtub and high-end nickel brassware, plus antique brass lighting and ironmongery. All vanity units including in the WC are bespoke made and either stained solid oak or spray finished. Every room in the house is impeccably finished to the highest architectural and design specification and offers the new owner an immaculate turn-key home. Every piece of joinery is handmade bespoke, spray finished and with antique brass ironmongery and lighting.
The entire house including its brand-new staircase has been hand painted to the highest degree with a solid oak handrail from ground to top. The chevron oak flooring across the ground floor is a three-layered engineered oak and the upper floors are all covered in 100% wool carpet. The house is equipped with two electrical skylights with remote control and rain sensors, three further Velux windows in the top floor room, 14 meters of remote-operated sheer curtains around the central garden, wet underfloor heating across the ground floor plus Victorian ‘Princess’ cast iron radiators on first and second floors. All the lighting is either integrated or surface mounted and is carefully selected to compliment the spaces but can also be easily replaced by the buyer should they want to add their own style.
Finally, the house is future-proofed for potential upgrades, including for instance a hard-water softener if needed and a sparkling water option which can be added to the already installed antique brass smart tap by ‘Quooker’. This tap already provides filtered drinking water that is chilled and filtered boiling water, all supplied by ‘Aquathin’ one of the leaders in todays filtered drinking water.
In the end - with its extensive development and refurbishing, from its new foundations to its new top floor, un-rushed and patiently done by the couple’s collaboration with their best-known build team and local architects - this home is brand new, intelligent, and sustainable in its design and build… and ready for its first new owners.
