Known for its relaxed attitude, local shops and bistro pubs the popular area of Bakers Bottom is a well-kept secret. Between Queen’s Park with its tennis courts and playground, and a little known woodland, the bohemian café culture of Kemptown Village, bordered by beaches, is just a stroll.
Large windows – which are double glazed- make this a bright and cheerful home and inside is far bigger than it looks from its traditional exterior. The hallway is bright and cheerful with an unusually high ceiling and blonde practical flooring which continues into the elegant living room at the front where the large deep bay looks across the quiet street – and will never be blocked by a van as parking is only along the far side of the lane.
Behind it, a bedroom/study looks over the patio and although these two ground floor rooms are used as bedrooms some neighbours have knocked through to create an impressive reception.
Downstairs, a relaxed kitchen diner has windows at each end and opening to the patio, the space is inviting with plenty of room to enjoy with friends. Pale units have practical work surfaces, a cupboard keeps the room uncluttered and outside, the paved patio is a blank canvas shaded by the delicate foliage of a sumac, and has a back gate to the passageway to the woodland. Also tucked away on this floor, a modern bathroom has all you need including a shower above the bath.
Up on the first floor, the second double bedroom is a generous size with restful garden views, whilst at the front, a third airy bedroom has space to play with as it spans the width of the building and looks across the characterful, painted cottages opposite.
