Nell Lodge is a three-storey, brick-built Georgian-style house, separated from the road by a low wall, mounted with wrought-iron railings with steps to the covered front door between two pillars. A private access road to the left leads beneath the building to a gated mews, with a number of properties located behind.
Access to Nell Lodge is via a secure front door which leads to a communal atrium. An internal door from here opens onto the apartments reception hall, which is fitted with a hardwood floor, with a storage cupboard ideal for coats to the right.
Ahead is an internal door which opens onto a bedroom - currently used as a music room and office by the vendor - with a hard-wearing laminate wood flooring, an Ethernet socket, a modern vertical wall-mounted radiator and an in-built storage cupboard.
The hallway continues to the left, leading round to more internal doors opening to the right onto the modern, partially-tiled bathroom and ahead to the bright, airy, open-plan kitchen and living room.
The kitchen area has an easy-to-clean, terracotta-style, tiled floor with ice-white, soft-closing base and wall units with a high-gloss finish fitted above and below granite worktops laid out in a U shape. A four-ring induction hob with a toughened glass splash screen is located in the centre below a concealed retractable extractor with an electric oven below, although the design also incorporates a separate, eye-level microwave oven. A ceramic sink with chrome mixer tap is located beneath a window to one side of the room while, to the other, a breakfast bar separates the cooking area from the main living space. Recessed, ceiling-mounted LED spotlights offer plenty of light after dark while the kitchen is also equipped with a ceiling-mounted smoke alarm.
During the day, the living room is flooded with light from double sashed windows overlooking the mews gardens to the rear of the property, while softer, wall-mounted lights illuminate the room at night. There is a TV point, the rooms hardwood floor matches the hallway, while warmth in the colder months is provided by a modern vertical, wall-mounted radiator connected to a community heating scheme.
The modern house bathroom adjacent to the kitchen includes a WC with dual flush and a concealed cistern; a hand basin incorporated within a double-doored storage cupboard with an illuminated mirror above; a heated, ladder-style, wall-mounted towel rail in chrome; and a white panel bath with shower above and fitted with a glass splash screen.
However, perhaps the propertys stand-out feature is the delightful, duplex double bedroom accessed via a spiral staircase from the living room. The vaulted ceiling is fitted with recessed LED spotlights and two Velux windows, adding to the light allowed to fill the room during the day from matching ox-eye windows in both gable ends. Both a single and a double wardrobe are incorporated into the design, along with an in-built desk top, ideal as a second workstation or perhaps as a ready-made dressing table.
