No 2 Howe Road is a beautifully presented and substantial family home located on the highly sought-after Howe Road, within the suburb of Curzon Park. The property has been the subject of two significant extensions, remodelling and refurbishing to a particularly high specification and finish throughout. The redevelopment programme includes rewiring, new uPVC double-glazed windows, central heating and high-specification fixtures and fittings throughout. The property now offers stylish and free-flowing accommodation, ideal for families or the downsizing market alike.
A pitched canopy porch gives way to a contemporary modern door with glazed sidelights opening into an airy central reception hall with oak laminate flooring, which runs throughout much of the ground floor accommodation. Off the reception hall is a cloakroom fitted with a two-piece Roca suite with chrome heated towel radiator, porcelain tile flooring and automatic motion detection lighting. Double doors open from the reception hall into a well-proportioned lounge featuring the original open fireplace within a mahogany surround with marble hearth.
The hub of the house is the open-plan family dining kitchen, which benefits from a westerly aspect. The kitchen itself is fitted with high-quality contemporary cabinets by Kutchenhaus with contrasting stone-effect handleless doors, including eye-level cabinets, pan drawers and a larder unit. A substantial central island includes an Elica ceramic hob with integral extractor fan and breakfast bar. Quality integrated Siemens appliances include an eye-level electric fan oven, combination microwave and warming drawer. Further integral appliances include a full height fridge and freezer and a dishwasher. Porcelain tile flooring runs throughout the kitchen, which benefits from south-facing bifold doors leading out to a paved rear courtyard.

Occupying the southern wing of the property is a light and airy sitting room, having dual aspects and featuring oak laminate flooring and bifold doors opening to the rear courtyard garden.
