Number 16 Kingsborough Gardens is a fantastic and rarely available ground and garden duplex conversion. The property offers extremely flexible living space and has the added benefit of its very own private rear garden, off street parking and a recently installed studio. The studio has electricity and would make a perfect home office, gym or garden room.
The full building was re-developed circa 2004 and is still in excellent condition today. The property is initially accessed via a secure entry system leading into a commanding communal hall with wonderful original detail. The apartment has a welcoming reception hall with storage off and the elevated ground floor level has a superb drawing room with beautiful wood panelling, fireplace and ornate cornice work. There is a large master bedroom to the rear with its very own en-suite shower room and dressing area.
Downstairs, at garden level there are two excellent sized bedrooms to the front of the building, both with ample wardrobe storage space, and bedroom three has a door leading out the private front garden space. The downstairs hall also has a large family bathroom, with separate shower off, along-side two excellent storage cupboards and under stair storage as well. There is a fourth bedroom/study, also with an excellent storage cupboard off and access to an internal courtyard, ideal for a morning coffee when the weather will allow! One of the properties most appealing features is its spacious dining kitchen, which leads through to another sitting room that is situated in the former coach house that makes both a fantastic winter room and summer room. It has the added benefit of a wood burner as well. The sitting room has a back door leading to the private rear garden, parking and studio.
