Overall Description

This is a grand Victorian semi-detached house that has been completely transformed by its current owners with a superb new extension to the rear that adds a highly contemporary family kitchen, dining and living space to what is already a large and stylish family home. The original house has large well-proportioned rooms, high ceilings and sash windows that create a sense of light and space much admired in properties of this period along with period features such as the grand fireplaces and intricate plaster work. The new large kitchen/dining/family room extension with tri-fold doors opening out to the patio is a stunning new focal point for the house and is where the current owners spend most of their time. Outside there is a cleverly landscaped garden that is is private and has a sunny westerly aspect and the garage has been converted into a utility/laundry room. The property has four double bedrooms on the top two floors and although it is a period property the whole house has a highly contemporary feel with high-end, stylish modern bathroom and en-suite to the master bedroom as well as a useful downstairs cloakroom. Unlike most properties of the era this one has a driveway with parking and a garage (currently the utility) to the side with extra parking along the street. If you are looking for some Victorian grandeur but also want to live in a modern house designed with 21st Century families in mind then this superb property could be for you.

Location

The property sits in a pleasant residential location under ten minute's walk from High Barnet tube station and the High Street with its very good range of local and High Street shops, pubs and restaurants - indeed the house is under 10 mins from all major supermarkets - M&S, Waitrose, Sainsburys, Morrisons and Tesco .

There are good transport links close by with High Barnet tube station (Northern Line) and New Barnet mainline stations around a ten walk away (with regular trains to Kings Cross). There are good local bus services and further shopping and other amenities in New Barnet and Whetstone.
