This delightful Regency home (1823) is located in Whittlesey street, Waterloo. One of Central London’s most desirable and recognisable streets.
The grade 2-star listed property is end-of-terrace, with side access to the pedestrianised Windmill Walk from the 660sq foot, Chelsea-standard, South-facing garden. The garden benefits from fruit trees, central lawn, rose bush, grape vine, original outside WC, sink and pond.
The property has undergone extensive refurbishment and modernisation to the highest standard throughout, whilst retaining period features such as sash windows, wooden panelling and original coal fire-places.
It is one of the largest and most well-appointed houses in the street.
The German-made, bespoke designer kitchen has handle-less cupboards, large pan drawers, thick Corian work surfaces integrated into the sink and ceiling-high splash-backs. A full wall of floor to ceiling cupboards provides generous storage and contains an integrated full-height and separate fridge and freezer. Utilities are top of the range including a five-ring Miele induction hob, 900mm professional Miele oven and an instant boiling hot water tap.
The kitchen extends into a large open-plan dining area with large family table, a 3- metre wide picture window and large bi-fold doors opening onto the brick patio and garden. The room also benefits from a 1200mm square electric sliding roof light.
The first front reception room has one wood panelled wall and sash window with wooden shutters. Central to the room is an original, fully functional fireplace with a beautiful cast iron surround.
Across the hall, the second front reception room (currently used as an office/therapy room) also has a wood-panelled wall, original working fireplace, sash window with wooden shutters.
An under-stairs door leads down to the lower ground basement which has been fully tanked and contains a sitting room and study area at almost 300 sq ft - perfect for a teenagers den!
Upstairs on the first landing is a lovely sash window which floods light into the stair well and hallway and has a bench seat with storage. To the right side is the master double bedroom, with 2 built in wardrobes, original wood-panelled wall and an ornamental fireplace with art deco tiles.
Opposite is the second double bedroom with an ensuite wet-room, benefiting from natural light, floor to ceiling travetine marble tiles, shower, sink and toilet. The bedroom has a built in wardrobe, cupboards and shelving, original wood panelled wall and an ornamental fireplace with decorative cast iron surround.
The family bathroom is beautifully arranged with built-in shelving and bath tub panelled in the same floor to ceiling travatine marble that lines the room.
Next to the bathroom is a large marble-lined, walk-in shower room with natural light.
The third double bedroom has original, small cast-iron cooking range with sash window and shutters overlooking the garden.
A large floored and insulated loft runs the full length of the house and has pull-down stairs, providing easy access from the landing, providing excellent storage space.
Whittlesey Street is incredibly charming and peaceful, tucked away and sheltered as it is from the surrounding hustle and bustle of Central London, just a few hundred yards away. The River and the Southbank are a short stroll, giving easy access to the Tate Modern, National Theatre, the BFI and Royal Festival Hall, as well as excellent restaurants and bars. Lower Marsh, Flat Iron Square, Maltby Street Market and Borough Market are all within walking distance and represent the exciting evolution and impetus of the area.
The Cut runs parallel, home to both the Young and Old Vic and convenient local amenities.
Waterloo station is less than five minutes’ walk, for extensive National Rail services and access to the Bakerloo, Jubilee, Northern and Waterloo and City Lines.
