If you are looking for a large Victorian family home with a south-facing garden, great transport links in a peaceful residential location, then our newest instruction in leafy Kensal Green is one to consider. Ideally located in zone two, it is situated on a no through road guaranteeing peace and quiet, yet it is moments from a brilliant selection of pubs, restaurants, parks, cafes and shops; including the much celebrated Retrouvious and Scarlet and Violet. For those who still need to commute, this three-bedroom family home is a short walk to both Kensal Green station (7 mins 0.3 miles – Bakerloo and overground trains) and Kensal Rise station (14min 0.8 miles – overground trains) and also several bus stops that can transport you to a variety of destinations across the capital.
As well as its ideal location for commuters, the property is also ideal for families. With a number of primary and secondary schools on your doorstep, the school run needn’t be a chore. There are fantastic children’s classes at the Yard (an 8 min walk from the house), a brand new leisure centre (the Moberely) which has soft play, various kids classes and swimming lessons, two parks less than a mile away (Roundwood and Queen’s park) and three fantastic libraries all within walking distance. With the abundance of cafes, pubs and restaurants all near by, this property is tough to beat as far as a work-life balance is concerned.
We’ve discussed the fantastic location, but what about the property itself? The modern, spacious interior of this home is hard to put into words; come through the front door and you are suddenly transported into a rather different world. The property has been renovated to an incredibly high standard. With a keen eye for design throughout, the property is a dream for those who value both form and function.
Starting downstairs, you enter the property into the charming, rustic look hallway. Many of the property’s original features have been lovingly kept and enhanced by the owners, and nowhere is this more apparent than the hallway.
From here, we enter the living room. With its distinctive decor and design, the room makes the most of the natural light afforded from the huge bay window to create an amazing contrast of light and shade, which is complemented further by the stripped-back look of the white floors. The room is unashamedly cosy, and this feeling is enhanced by the fireplaces and wood burner in the room.
As you move through, we now enter what is undoubtedly the highlight of the property: the kitchen. The only way to describe this room is as a modern, country-style kitchen. The large room is bathed in light from the skylight above and is undoubtedly a stunning place to dine. The kitchen is not all form – the room has everything the chef of the home needs. As well as the fitted kitchen, there is also a very handy island for additional space and storage. And just to add to the amazing kitchen, it also opens out directly into the secluded south facing garden. This makes the property ideal for entertaining or just somewhere to relax on a warm summer’s day.
Moving upstairs we find 3 light, spacious bedrooms and a family bathroom. Ideal for use as a family home, there are three remarkably spacious rooms. While many property’s third bedrooms are box rooms, here is nothing of the sort. Even the smallest of the three rooms measures 11’ 5” by 8’ 11” (3.48m x 2.72m). The spacious rooms mean that there is plenty of space for growing families. Each of the bedrooms has been designed to make the most of the natural light that they enjoy via large sash windows. They also retain many of the original features of the home, providing a nice mixture of original and contemporary styles that suit the home.
In the bathroom, we have a traditional shower over bath layout with a WC and basin that are all in a traditional style. There are also rather distinctive (but undeniably beautiful) green tiles, that perfectly suit the style of not only the room but also the property overall.
