Property description

Formerly the residence of the novelist and critic Ford Madox Ford, this imposing semi-detached gated house was lovingly restored and extended in 2013 to create a magnificent 5,645 square foot residence with a lush landscaped garden and off-street parking for 2 large cars.

Rarely is a home of this calibre offered for sale. Featuring 5 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms and an abundance of lateral living space, this home successfully merges a thoughtful layout with traditional Victorian grandeur.

Designed with entertaining in mind, this home has a magnificent formal reception room with original cornicing and a gas marble surround fireplace. French doors open to a sun-soaked terrace with stairs leading to the garden. A triple aspect garden room or additional study opens onto the terrace. There is also a guest powder room, piano room and coat cupboard on this floor.

An impressive limestone staircase leads down to a large study with gas limestone surround fireplace and lavish American walnut joinery. A casual lounge room - with jumbo flat screen TV - flows into the dining area.

Folding doors take you through to an elegant integrated kitchen with island breakfast bar and granite stone surfaces. The huge double Sub-Zero fridge/freezer, double Decor ovens and a Decor six-burner gas stove, will put a smile on the face of even the most culinary conscious chef. There are 2 Miele dishwashers, a wine fridge, a pull-out fridge drawer and plenty of cupboard and pantry space.

Bi-fold doors open to a landscaped garden oasis featuring tropical palm trees and abundant plants. Light sandstone paving provides a chic feel to this secluded outdoor space.

Another set of stairs descend to the spacious gym, private guest suite with en-suite bathroom and climate controlled 1200 bottle capacity wine room.

This floor also has a children’s playroom with surround sound home cinema. There is plenty of built-in storage, an air-ventilation system, it/plant room, concealed safe-room and 2nd guest powder room.

A second staircase leads to the side house access, boot room, coat cupboard and 3rd guest powder room.

The master suite occupies the entire first floor. Accessed via a walk-through wardrobe with bespoke leather fronted doors, this luxurious bedroom has concealed storage and large bay window. The expansive en-suite bathroom with marble-top double basin, separate shower and freestanding bath with Aquavision TV, heated mirrors and towel and robe racks completes this grand master suite.

The top floor consists of 3 more bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. Each bedroom is fitted with extensive built-in wardrobes and bookshelves.

This 21st century home offers every high-tech capability including Control4 One Touch Smart Home System (room-to-room video calling, 16 zone distributed audio and video, Lutron lighting and CCTV). There are 34 Amina invisible ceiling-speakers in all rooms and air-conditioning in all bedrooms on the upper floors, the gym and the garden/study room. Light sensors operate throughout the home and under-floor heating is installed in all stone and tiled areas. An electric car charging point is located in the parking area.

With some of the best schools, parks, transport links, shops and restaurants on your doorstep, this home is a must see for those wanting the best that Kensington has to offer.
