Approaching this property, one cannot be but impressed by the feeling of seclusion offered by the mature trees and generous driveway to the front. The handsome façade is an indication of what is to come as once over the threshold there is an immediate sense of grandeur and understated sophistication with high ceilings, original features and hardwood parquet flooring all of which blend seamlessly with an impeccable Farrow and Ball color scheme. To the right sits an elegant living room with box bay window, feature fireplace and double doors through to the middle living room, this room makes a dramatic design statement with its dark colors, bespoke joinery, double height doors and original fireplace.
