De Vere Gardens, LondonBook a viewing
You would be the first to enjoy the spectacular renovation of this very special four-bedroom / three-bathroom duplex Kensington apartment. The expansive and luminous triple-aspect living space is perched on the top (fifth) floor of an elegant Victorian building. From the open-plan kitchen and dining areas you gaze down on the local roofscape through the picture windows, and across to the dome of the nearby Royal Albert Hall (with the tip of the Shard peeping out behind) and the museum towers. From the lounge you look, and step, straight out through wide french doors onto the stunning roof terrace and garden (designed by multiple Chelsea Flower Show gold-medalist Andy Sturgeon). Its seclusion, the warmth of its west-facing aspect during the day and the impact of its subdued night-time lighting, give it the intimacy of extra living and entertaining space; particularly charming for evening entertaining. These panoramas surely provide the wow factor, when you or your guests reach the top of the feature staircase.
Downstairs, the spacious entrance hall leads to a large master bedroom with ample fitted wardrobe space and a generous en-suite bathroom, featuring his and her sinks, a stylish free-standing bath and an open shower. Nearby are two further bedrooms, the larger with a substantial fitted wardrobe, divided by a family bathroom and additional walk-in wardrobe. The other end of the entrance hall, slightly detached from the other rooms, leads past an ample utility room to a large rear bedroom suite which includes an en-suite shower room and walk-in dressing area (again, with abundant fitted shelving and wardrobe space), though this suite could equally be used as a study and library area.
All this is complemented by various additional features rarely all found in combination:
- A superb but remarkably quiet location, on a wide but pretty street about 100m from the park.
- New high-quality fittings, lighting, wood flooring and heating throughout.
- Natural light in every room: from the skylight atop the staircase illuminating the entrance hall, to the new skylights serving all bathrooms.
- Common parts tastefully and recently refurbished: dominated by original wood flooring, striking artwork and a beautiful period lift.
The apartment is also fitted with a brand new monitored alarm as well as being served by a porter 6 days as well.
