Within a kilometre of the Hammersmith Tube Station (Zone 2), regular connections to central London are available on the Piccadilly, District and Circle lines while buses on nearby Fulham Palace Road go to Hammersmith, Richmond, Willesden Junction, Ladbroke Grove, Clapham, Wandsworth, Waterloo and West Brompton.

Charing Cross Hospital is a short walk from the property while nearby recreational facilities include the Charing Cross Sports Club, the Frank Benfield Park and the Thames river path which leads to The Crabtree pub and the Riverside Café. For those interested in education, Melcombe Primary School is within a few hundred metres of the house and is rated as an outstanding school by Ofsted.
The property is separated from the road by a light grey, waist-high wall with a wrought-iron gate between two pillars opening onto a block-paved, courtyard garden which leads to the covered porch. There is a pleasant, enclosed garden laid to lawn at the rear with shade in the summer offered by a single mature tree. Some privacy from neighbouring properties is also ensured by head-high timber fence panels. Features include an open-sided glass-roof shelter for outside dining, a flagstone patio, an outside tap and security lighting.
The front door opens onto a long hallway equipped with a wall-mounted radiator and solid stripped-wood floors, with doors to both bedrooms to the left, a store cupboard to the right and a step down into the lounge. The wood floor continues into the living room which includes an authentic, cast-iron feature fireplace with heat-resistant tiles framing a metal grate. Additional warmth in winter is provided by a wall-mounted radiator, there is a TV point and some in-built storage and shelving with lighting provided by modern, ceiling-mounted, recessed LED spotlights.
The kitchen is separated from the main living space by a solid-wood breakfast bar installed over modern, soft-closing drawers with storage alcoves to one side. The reminder of the kitchen is fitted with ice-white, gloss-finished base and wall units above and below white worktops with brick-effect splashback tiles in a pale green fitted above all cooking and preparation areas. The design also incorporates an electric oven beneath a four-ring gas hob, an eye-level microwave oven, an in-built dishwasher and space for an upright fridge/freezer. A square sink with chrome mixer tap is located beneath the window overlooking the rear garden while an internal door leads to the bathroom.
The bathroom itself is fully-tiled and includes a square ceramic sink mounted within a floating wooden washstand below a mirror. There is a low-level WC and a bath with a shower above.
Both double bedrooms are fitted with stripped-wood floors and include in-built cupboards and shelving as well as cast-iron feature fireplaces and wall-mounted radiators. The room to the front of the house includes a bay window while the room to the rear overlooks the back garden.
