The property
Wicklow House is a handsome semi-detached Victorian property dating circa 1860, having been converted into two apartments in the late 1960s, of which Apartment 10A occupies the first-floor level. The property has recently been renovated throughout to a particularly high standard of specification and finish.


The accommodation
The apartment is accessed via private external brick steps leading to the apartment front door opening into the reception hall, having attractive coloured tile flooring. Steps lead up to a most imposing central reception hall, having high plaster coved ceilings, deep skirting boards and wide door architraves.


The hub of the apartment is a comprehensive newly fitted bespoke kitchen with contrasting coloured cabinets under granite work surfaces, including a central island incorporating an AEG five-ring gas hob, a dual temperature wine cooler and breakfast bar. Additional features include a double Belfast sink, and further appliances include an AEG twin eye-level oven, dishwasher and space for a free-standing American-style fridge freezer.


Adjacent to the kitchen is a large sitting room featuring a living flame fire within an ornate painted surround with tiled hearth and adjoining bookcases. This room enjoys a wonderful aspect through twin arched sash windows along the tree-lined Queens Park Road.


Off the lower hallway is a well-proportioned utility room fitted with a comprehensive range of wall and base cabinets incorporating a Belfast sink, all under oak block work surfaces with tiled splashbacks. The utility room has space and plumbing for laundry appliances and houses the gas central heating boiler. Opposite the utility room is the family bathroom, beautifully refitted with a classic white suite, including a shower bath with side fill and thermostatic shower, low-level WC and vanity sink cabinet.


The master bedroom is particularly spacious, fitted with a range of built-in louvred wardrobes. Steps lead down to a luxurious refitted en suite shower room featuring a corner shower cubicle with thermostatic shower, low-level WC, vanity sink cabinet with illuminated mirror above, and attractive metro wall tiles. There are two further bedrooms, both enjoying appealing views along Queens Park Road.

Services
