3 Tottenham Place is a fabulous Grade II Listed family townhouse in an enviable central Clifton location; beautifully restored and refurbished by the current owners.
Accessed from the hall floor, the principal house comprises four floors with beautifully appointed accommodation throughout and access to a useful cellar below.
Over the lower ground floor lies a superb self-contained one bedroom annex currently generating a significant income for the current owners through regular Airbnb bookings throughout the year.
The welcoming entrance hall sets the scene for what is to come, with beautifully refurbished floorboards, deep detailed ceiling cornice work and access to the handsome curved balustrade staircase leading to the upper floors.
The kitchen is exquisite; beautifully appointed with an expanse of work surfaces and a generous central island. A “cooks kitchen” with an oversize state of the art range cooker, instant hot water and integrated waste disposal unit, double fronted American style fridge freezer, integrated wine fridge and double Belfast sink, it is an immensely sociable space running full depth and open plan with the dining room, capped off by wall mounted sonos speakers and working shuttered sash windows.
The dining room is to the rear, overlooking the garden and finished with a charming wood burning stove; perfect for cosy winter evenings and recessed into an elegant period fire surround.
To the rear of the hall is a useful boot room with plenty of space for children's buggies and to discretely store all of the day to day kit modern family life requires. There is also a w.c and wash basin.
Over the half landing (above) is a fully fitted utility room with space and plumbing for a washing machine and dryer, fitted wooden work tops, recessed sink and twin opaque sash widows.
Upstairs, over the first floor, is a stunning full width drawing room with high ceilings, rich ceiling paster work, a working open fire and twin shuttered sash windows leading onto the balcony (perfect for balloon watching) and flooding the room with natural light. The drawing room runs full depth into a fabulous sitting room, complete with a window seat overlooking the rear garden.
The numerous sash windows within the house have been professionally draft proofed, and those over the hall and first floor all benefit from working wooden shutters.
Over the second floor lies a sumptuous master bedroom suite, occupying the entire floor with a lovely light double bedroom ( with superb southerly views), a beautifully appointed en-suite bath and shower room (with his & hers vanity unit) and direct access into a superbly appointed dressing room, with two walls of fitted wardrobes (7 doble and 2 single) and plenty of natural light with space for a dressing table in-front of the window. A perfect parent's escape.
Over the top floor lie three double bedrooms, with incredible views across the harbour and Cabot Tower from the front two and a leafy outlook from the rear, which share a lovely light filled family bathroom.
Accessed from the rear of the entrance hallway are steps down to the lower ground floor, and a hallway leading out into the garden. There are further steps down to a generous vaulted cellar space perfect for long term storage or the potential to provide further accommodation if needed (and subject to consent).
The annex enjoys separate, self-contained status and has, over the past few years, provided the current owners with a decent additional income stream from a successful Airbnb business model.
Arranged over the lower ground floor with independent access it enjoys a generous sitting room and fitted kitchen with a flag stone floor, bedroom and shower room. The space enjoys a cottage style finish, with the owners enhancing and highlighting the retained period features and providing it with its own independent heating system.
As it stands, it provides plenty of potential either to continue earning an income or for lovely separate accommodation for dependent relatives, staff accommodation or a guest suite.
It can, quite easily, be re-incorporated into the main house via a doorway into the main home's lower ground floor hallway.
The rear garden is deceptively spacious, fully enclosed and immensely private. Laid mostly to lawn it enjoys mature borders and access out onto a private lane to the rear - perfect access for dogs and bikes.
The rear elevation of the house itself has been dressed with climbing plants and an irrigation system, and plans have been drawn up (but not yet submitted) to provide access out into the garden directly from the hall floor (plans accessible from our office) via the boot room at the rear.
To the front of the house are two large vaulted storerooms, further increasing the long term storage potential or, subject to a new owners needs and planning consent, further recreational uses.
