4 Bed House Sold STC
In the same ownership since 1966, a fabulous four storey house, forming part of a historic and particularly attractive terrace built circa 1840 and backing onto Torriano Cottages.
Offering a very substantial 2197 square feet (204 sq M) of accommodation, arranged over four levels, the property is very well presented, but in need of updating.
Entered at flat ground floor level, the accommodation is particularly spacious with good ceiling heights and excellent levels of light afforded by the very large sash windows, characteristic of the period. The two intercommunicating receptions are full of character and charm and there is a cloakroom to the rear. The first floor comprises two very good double bedrooms and a very spacious landing with large sash window, ideal for a study.
On the top floor, the unexpected treat of an open-plan studio room of with a partially glazed single-pitch roof, in use as an artist's studio since the 1960s. We understand that when this terrace of four houses was built, each had a studio on the top floor and that this is the last remaining with the original configuration. There is also a family bathroom on this level.
On the lower ground floor, a reception or bedroom occupies the front, along with a storage area with a brick vaulted roof. To the rear is a good-size eat-in kitchen and further family bathroom.
The rear garden is approximately 25 feet with a pleasing southerly aspect.
Leighton Rd is a popular residential location, well placed for outstanding state schools, such as Torriano Primary, Kentish Town Primary and Camden School for Girls. Kentish Town Underground (Northern Line) and Thameslink are close by. An excellent range of independent retailers, cafes, bars and restaurants are situated nearby at both Brecknock Rd and Fortess Rd.
