The light-filled hallway surprises from the outset, with an integrated aquarium greeting you. As for the fashionable kitchen, it boasts fitted appliances and storage from Blackrock Kitchens, and has a generous amount of space for cooking, dining and entertaining.

Most of the property’s Victorian elements are on the first floor, with picture windows, coving and high ceilings in most rooms on that level.

Elsewhere on this floor, there’s a secluded living/entertainment room, with a projector and surround sound.

There’s a playroom downstairs and a study upstairs, both of which could be converted if the new owners desire. One of the five bedrooms is currently in use as a dressing room, so there’s plenty of space for a large family who appreciate the finer things in life.

Upstairs, the bedrooms are large and bright: the main bedroom features a funky mirrored panel, as well as a beautiful en-suite bathroom.

The gardens of the property deserve a mention, too; they’re finely landscaped, and are best enjoyed from the sunny sandstone patio area.
