We are delighted to offer for sale this rarely available well-proportioned 3 bedroom, 2 reception room semi-detached Victorian house (built 1900) situated on the border of Totteridge and Whetstone, within 2 minutes’ walk of Totteridge and Whetstone Northern Line tube station as well as Whetstone High Road’s amenities. The property offers fantastic potential to extend to the rear, side, and loft (STPP). It boasts 4 original fireplaces, oak flooring throughout, and a substantial back garden.
The property is a Victorian three-bedroom house that is believed to have been constructed in 1900. It sits back from the road in an elevated position with stone stairs leading to the front door. The house has a lovely front garden with rose bushes and green hedges. The back garden is unusually large for this type of London property. There is a stone patio, a lawn, and rose bushes and trees along the fences. There is a garden shed close to the back fence. Just over the back fence, a beautiful large oak tree prevents the back garden from being overlooked. At the back, the garden borders the Baxendale extensive leafy green grounds, which makes the garden a quiet peaceful space.
The house has been substantially refurbished and modernised by the current owners and is in excellent condition. The property has a timber-framed tiled roof and solid brickwork external walls, to which insulation has been added in two of the bedrooms and the loft. There is central heating, double glazing throughout, with additional secondary glazing to the front, and oak flooring in the hallway, reception rooms, and bedrooms. The house is very nicely decorated in light pale tones. All bedrooms are generous double bedrooms with higher than usual ceilings. All rooms except for the master bedroom have original fireplaces. The master bedroom benefits from a very nicely designed en-suite shower and toilet. The loft is large and high with flooring and insulation installed throughout and serves the current owners as ample space for storage.
The property offers fantastic potential to extend to the rear, side, and loft (STPP). As two neighbouring houses of exactly the same build have already been extended to the rear, side, and loft to provide additional receptions and bedrooms, planning permission should be easily obtained.
