The layout of the apartment…
The building is entered from street level and you immediately see the grandeur of the building with a stylish entrance foyer. Steps or a ramp give access to the two lifts which means this apartment is ideal for those with limited mobility and can be “future proofed” for elderly residents.
The second floor, we find the apartment itself and you enter into a very spacious entrance hall with glazed wall creating a real feeling of space and light.
The grand living room is entered via original double doors – this is a light and bright room with a south, south east aspect, it benefits from lots of light and sunshine. This room is very large with an original gallery space overlooking the front, faced in original wood panelling.
The large windows are 100% acoustic and thermal insulated to avoid any unnecessary noise from the street level.
A separate dining space is large enough for a table of 6 or even 8 and has views to the front.
The kitchen is totally separate from the living and accessed from the dining space via a beautiful, glazed door. It is well fitted with white units. There is space for the usual appliances and has a separate utility room, home to the washing machine and further storage.
Back to the hallway, we find a further room which can be used as a bedroom (number 4) or as the current owners, as a home office/study.
To the right of the entrance hall, we find the owners accommodation and “night space…”
The first room is a sitting/snug area which is the perfect spot for an evening in front of the TV.
