With a pink front door and Wisteria and Clematis growing across the front of the house, this property in Battersea has to be London’s most romantic and it is conveniently on sale as Valentine’s Day creeps closer – could this be the best Valentine’s Day present you could buy?
This four-bedroom house for sale through Douglas & Gordon is one of the most unique to come on the market recently. The Victorian cottage takes back to the 1870s when it was built by the heir to the Banham locksmith business for his mistress. None of the quirky characteristics of the house have been lost over the years, in fact the current owners have added to its charm with an artistic interior design and the addition of a shepherd’s hut in the garden.
Hidden off the main streets in Battersea, this four-bedroom home is set back off the road and inside a gated enclave close to the River Thames and Battersea Square. Inside you will feel worlds away from London. The house is arranged over three floors, plus has its own off-street parking and a private garden. The drawing room is very spacios and includes a wall of built-in book shelves, a period fireplace and large windows. It leads onto the perfectly pink kitchen and a downstairs study room.
Upstairs, the master bedroom is a particular feature of the house, it has a walk-in wardrobe – most women’s dream – and an en-suite bathroom with romantic roll-top bath and separate shower. There is a second bedroom on this floor and two more on the third floor, along with another bathroom. All have built-in wardrobes. Finally, there’s the bohemian shepherd’s hut in the garden, which serves as an additional room and would make a fantastical playroom for children.
