Old World Charm Perfectly Suited To The Modern Home Owner
23rd Oct 2013
The early 19th century saw the introduction of an increasingly romantic, medieval Gothic style. The result of new technology, building materials, and construction methods saw the inception of the Victorian architecture era. With defining features including large bay windows, turrets, and red brickwork, this design style focused on decorative elements and aesthetic detailing.
During the last few years of the Victorian era, the affluent suburb of Stanmore saw the development of many fine large houses which embraced this particular style of design. And over 100 years later, only a few of these properties remain intact.
One such home is located on a secluded plot off sought-after Gordon Avenue, and was built circa 1889. A perfect example of Victorian architecture, the home embodies the visual appeal of yesteryears style. Extremely well-maintained, and set on beautiful manicured land, the house is a wonderful combination of old world charm and contemporary convenience.
On the market for the first time in 28 years, this magnificent home is extremely spacious and offers potential owners seclusion and privacy.
Boasting a long gated drive and large forecourt, the house features a custom-built country style kitchen/breakfast room and a Victorian style Orangery.
The property is perfect for family living with its four large bedrooms, two bathrooms, and a generously sized room on the second floor. With high ceilings, and huge bay windows, the room is appropriate as a playroom, artist’s studio, or bedroom suite. The home is also well suited to entertaining due to its generously sized reception rooms and lovely landscaped outdoor area.
Conveniently located, the property allows for easy access to Stanmore’s array of cafes, restaurants, and shopping facilities, as well as numerous transport links, schools and places of worship.
This home is available for £1,590,000. To arrange a viewing or for further information, please contact Lee Martin or Steven Schiller on 020 8954 0060; e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org visit www.prestonbennett.co.uk
