A Wonderful Villa

A wonderful London villa in a mature garden.

1870s villa set in plantsmen’s garden. Set back from a wide street in a garden with gravel paths, and offstreet parking. The front is original and in part covered by a pale climbing rose,while the back has large steel framed windows.

The interiors are a full synthesis of old and new.

On the ground floor, off the large entrance hall ,a tobacco coloured, leather floored dining room, seating 16, leads to a white modern stainless steel floored kitchen; this in turn opens out onto a terrace which looks over  the densely planted garden behind the house. A ballroom drawing office opens off the other side of the stair hall with its stone floor and coral carpet.

On the first floor, a book lined landing opens on one side to a large white understated bedroom with light from east and west; and on the other to a royal blue study lined with books and display boxes with shells under a glass floor flanked by a sunken bath.

The entire second floor is the drawing room which has steel bookcases, stainless steel mesh sliding screens, leather cupboards, a cabinet of curiosities and a working fireplace.

The large garden is fully planted with 2500 tulips in the spring, roses, and Dahlias among exotic foliage later in the year.  The geodetic dome greenhouse has a collection of succulents and exotics. The garden has different levels with several terraces. Some terraces have outdoor showers.
