A sweeping staircase leads you up an ornately decorated stairwell to the top floor and the private entrance to the duplex apartment.
The sitting room to the front of the property is spacious and flooded with natural light from the two Georgian sash windows. The focal point of the room is the original black marble fireplace (currently non operational) with decorative copper surround and geometric- tiled hearth. Next door is the dining room that provides a versatile space for family entertaining and living with one large window overlooking the cobbled street. To the tranquil rear of the apartment lies a generously sized master bedroom featuring a wood-surround feature fireplace with a striking azure-blue tile inlay and hearth. The bedroom benefits from wood flooring and a large sash window with working windows that overlooks leafy private gardens.
