Undoubtedly one of the most impressive Westend conversions this utterly spectacular home occupies part lower ground, most of the ground floor and the entire first floor within this particularly attractive blonde sandstone terrace townhouse. The terrace sits elevated and set back from Prince Albert Road and is tree lined giving a comfortable sense of seclusion and exclusively and is entered at each end via giant blonde sandstone gate posts. To the rear the house is south facing with views to the garden and pleasure gardens beyond. This terrace also has a particularly unusual feature of bay windows to both the front and rear elevations. Internally, the property is just as impressive with a very tasteful and unique blend of modern features and countless period features throughout which include magnificent cornice work, stripped panelled doors, ornate pillars in the living room, together with original mirrored wall which sit effortlessly beside a bespoke commissioned stainless-steel fireplace. The dining kitchen is a stylish space with focal point ''Corian' topped island which sits at an angle and has seating down one entire side. All bedrooms are also really impressive, generous and each featuring a bay window, the master on the ground floor facing the terrace also featuring a working open fire and period surround. There is a shower room and drying room at ground floor, bathroom at first floor, office at mezzanine level and the utility room at lower ground has direct access to the rear garden which is shared with only one other proprietor in the building. Background and Terrace Improvements Princes Terrace is circa 1868 by James Thomson and is a classic example of twelve houses with round headed dormers, fine Italianate ashlar details, cast iron balustrades linking the front dormer windows and there are stone balustrades to the rear. There is an active and dedicated Residents Association for numbers 1-12 inclusive with a structured group which has organised recent works including lighting upgrade, terrace re-surfacing, maintenance of Terrace Gardens (front) and re-surfacing of the back lane (2015). The Association were also instrumental in the improvement of the pleasure gardens and were responsible for the new fencing in the lane and repainting of fencing round the pleasure gardens (Shared with Crown Gardens). Accommodation: Extending to circa 3000sqft the accommodation comprises a magnificent ''L' shaped drawing room/dining room with three section bay window to front, stunning cornice work, fireplace with working open fire, wooden floors and an original ornate framed mirrored rear wall. The dining kitchen comprises contemporary high gloss base and wall units and statement white ''Corian' topped island and a comprehensive range of integrated appliances. There are three very spacious double bedrooms, bedroom one on the ground floor with three section bay window to front, lovely cornice work and working fire, bedroom two with a south facing three section bay to the rear overlooking the garden and bedroom three on the first floor with a more elevated look onto the garden across to the pleasure gardens. There is a fabulous office/mezzanine with two south facing windows, a lovely period three-piece bathroom with south facing picture window, stylish shower room, fully fitted utility room and boot/drying room. The property has the huge advantage of direct access to the shared back garden via the utility room at lower ground level. Gas central heating.
