In More Detail - - Throughout this classic coach house contemporary design features have been incorporated seamlessly with creativity and imagination. Ground floor underfloor heating and high levels of insulation are just three of the many subtle additions that run throughout the property in a functional yet understated manner.
Ground Floor - - A distinguished European oak front door opens onto a spacious entrance hall where elegant limestone tiles with underfloor heating combine with crisp white walls to create a great sense of space. Refurbished by the current owners to beautifully high standard in 2016, the ground floor creates a contemporary yet sympathetic twist to this 1800s city centre home while sandblasted exposed beams and a bungaroosh wall remind you its coach house history.
Perfect for entertaining or spending time together as a family, the open plan arrangement includes an immaculate Square One kitchen beautifully appointed with an Elica extractor hood and a range of Neff and Siemens appliances. Tall pull-out larder cabinets and carousel shelving sit behind white soft close cabinets, while the etched grooves of sleek Uba Tuba granite countertops flow into the Blanco sink with its modern spray tap. Effortlessly delineating the space, a solid oak breakfast bar adds to the sociable feel, while a bespoke solid oak cabinet offers a wealth of storage and houses a large US-style fridge freezer. Deep recessed cupboards offer plenty of discreet space for laundry appliances.
Continuing the stylish design scheme, a modern wet-room features a wall-hung Villeroy & Boch suite arranged in a mosaic stone tile setting with underfloor heating, while a convenient cloakroom area completes the ground floor.
First Floor - - The rich tones of an engineered wood floor flow into a large dual aspect living room where a duo of French doors open onto a wide south-facing balcony. Generously proportioned with ample space to relax and entertain, natural light tumbles in highlighting a characterful arched recess while a Scan Andersen wood burner nestles within an exposed brick chimney breast for a traditional focal point.
The crisp white walls and exposed beams continue in the adjacent bedroom that benefits from plenty of storage within its deep recessed wardrobes and creates plenty of versatile space for those who work from home.
Internal windows allow natural light to flow throughout this floor emphasising its height and space, while library shelving in the hallway is perfectly placed for your book collection.
Second Floor - - Stretching across the majority of the top floor of this period coach house, a master suite offers plenty of potential to be reconfigured. Beautifully lit by a wide multi-pane window looking out over the mews, the large double bedroom area benefits from plenty of classic fitted wardrobes and cabinets. Adding a touch of luxury, a spacious dual aspect en suite bathroom offers an elegant Roca suite complete with corner jacuzzi bath and a large walk-in shower, while its monochrome tile setting lends a refined finishing touch.
Feature postcard patterned wallpaper adds a vintage splash of colour to a single bedroom that looks out across the rooftops from its tall Velux window.
Planning permission currently exists to insulate the roof and allows you the opportunity to transform the master suite in a highly contemporary space styled to your own tastes and needs. Dormer extensions could be added to both the bedrooms, a walk-in wardrobe area could be installed in between the master bedroom and its en suite, and a section of the single bedroom could be converted into a separate WC.
Outside - - The French doors of the living room open onto a decked south-facing balcony that engenders an easy flowing extension of the first floor, perfect for relaxing in the sun with the weekend papers.
An integral garage combines with an allocated space to offer convenient and secure off-road parking, rarely found with a property like this in such a central location.
Seller Insight - - "When we first saw this house we wanted somewhere between the sea and the station with a garage and no garden.
Set back from the road in a quiet mews, this is something special. It's a quirky property in the perfection location.
Going for a run along the seafront on a Sunday morning is bliss and we're spoilt for choice when it comes to restaurants.
If you want to live centrally but not on the street - this is it!"
