This lovely flat wasn't ever going to stay on the market for long, but as ever our philosophy of pricing honestly meant we achieved a sale on timeframes to suit our client and the buyer was committed from the outset, in what ended up being a slightly complex sale in a very turbulent market!
This tastefully designed and recently refurbished home boasts impressive internal space, which is brilliantly distributed across the flat. Even more impressive is its private garden (with direct access) which spans approx. 120m2, there is also scope to extend into the garden, giving you the ability to future-proof (STPP).
The flat’s internal space is nicely distributed across the whole flat, and it offers a social open plan kitchen/living space which is fantastic for entertaining, especially as the space opens into the garden via a pair of French doors, fantastic for all those BBQ’s and garden parties you will no doubt be obliged to hold! The thoughtfully designed kitchen offers contemporary fittings and ample storage, catering to the needs of even the most discerning cooks; there are high-end appliances, including dual ovens and the all-important gas hob!
The living space is a bright and airy space and has a quality to the finish to it, with luxury flooring and clean neutral décor, integrated spotlights and a bespoke media unit which also offers incredibly useful shelves for styling the room as well as offering practical storage.
There are two double bedrooms, each with a considerable degree of privacy, as both overlook your private garden and both are also at opposite ends of the flat to each other, allowing privacy when having guests. The master bedroom benefits from an en-suite bathroom and a walk-in wardrobe, providing a touch of luxury and convenience but also saving the bedroom from being cluttered with wardrobes and other furniture. There are also high-quality shutters over a bi-folding door leading onto the garden, which completely opens up the bedroom to the garden, which is a lovely touch.
The main bathroom is beautifully finished, with a contemporary free-standing bath and contemporary wall tiles. Much like the rest of the flat, it is modern, clean and beautifully done and for those that prefer to shower, there’s a shower in the en-suite.
Moving outdoors, stepping through one of the French doors in the living room (or bi-fold in the bedroom!), you’ll discover a private outdoor oasis that is remarkably quiet, considering the central location of this home. It spans an impressive 120m2 (approx.) and has enormous scope to build an outbuilding/studio etc, for those that want a separate work-from-home space, or as mentioned, there is definite scope to further extend the flat into the garden without compromising your outside space at all.
Notably, beyond this private garden, there is a communal garden for the building, to which all the flats, including this one, have access. There is also side access into the communal garden, making bringing in mucky bikes a breeze or allowing access to contractors for any work easier and less intrusive, which will also save the interior of the flat.
146 Church Road itself is a grand detached period building and, like many neighbouring buildings that Church Road is famous for, has a genuine sense of grandeur, but the most striking thing about 146, is its impeccable condition and presentation; it’s clear the co-freeholders are meticulous custodians of this stunning building.
