Entering this home feels like walking through the pages of Homes & Gardens* magazine! You will not wish to change a thing, the owner, a leading Architect, has spent 22 years detailing the house to absolute perfection, across its structure, layout and interior features.
The house, Eldon Grove, sits in a beautiful mature tree-lined Avenue of impressive large detached Edwardian homes. On entering this 3,632 sq ft structure an open plan Hallway whets your appetite for the six to seven Bedrooms and other relaxing spaces within the home.
The home currently contains a basement Office, which could be converted to a self-contained apartment, (subject to planning permission) as the lower ground floor already has a Laundry Room, Wet Room and Toilet facilities, this is the only change you may wish to consider.
The open plan Living and Dining spaces have an abundance of natural light, a double height ceiling gives an enhanced sense of great space and tranquility, this is truly a home to relax in. This seamlessly flows into a beautiful, fully featured Kitchen, which boasts an island, which will inspire anyone to start preparing fantastic foodie things and family meals – this Kitchen really is the heart of the home, the perfect space for memorable family gatherings and entertaining. “We love the Kitchen: the island, Lounge and our art collection” The owner adds. It could easily be said, that as well as the art framed on the walls, the whole home is a work of art in its own right! The levels of décor and fittings throughout are nothing short of exemplary!
The style continues outside, a beautiful low maintenance 34′ garden sits to the rear of the building, this has a large deck, perfect for summer parties and barbecues, it can be accessed from both the Kitchen and the light Conservatory. “We love inviting people over for dinner parties (and parties in general)” Says the owner, this house was designed for sharing and enjoying and will lead to many enjoyable parties and gatherings for its new owners too.
The attention to both detail and the bigger picture of lightness and airiness is apparent across the top three floors too. There are six to seven Bedrooms (one’s currently a Bedroom/Study), the expansive Master Bedroom with a Dressing room and En-suite Bathroom spans the whole first floor. The other Bedrooms are also large, light and airy, with two beautifully appointed family bathrooms between them on each floor.
The owner sums it up. “We have always been very happy living here. This is a house with good vibes! There have only been two owners in the last 70 years! With us being here for the last 22.”
The surrounding area of Hampstead is also a joy to behold. “I take my dog to nearby Hampstead Heath every morning, which is the best way to start the day. I work from home (which is the best commute ever!) We walk to the High Street for a coffee, a stroll, shopping and entertainment.” The owner enthuses.
In addition to Hampstead Heath’s 790 acres of woodland, playing fields, swimming pools and relaxing meadows, local amenities include, restaurants “Cafe Cote, Villa Bianca, Carluccio, Hampstead Creperie and Gail’s” being some of the recommendations of the current homeowners. “We have best transport access to London too” They add.
So if you’re looking for a large characterful family home that is nothing short of outstanding this is for you! Having Hampstead Heath nearby is the icing on the cake – whoever said ‘you can’t have your cake and eat it, has obviously never visited here.
