A city renowned for its architecture, London has everything from Regency townhouses to glass-covered skyscrapers and just about everything in between. Something not regularly—or ever—associated with the capital though, is gingerbread style.
But in suburban South West London, that’s exactly what has just hit the market for £2.95 million (US$3.47 million).
“There aren’t many homes in the capital that epitomize festive cheer quite like this lovely original Victorian coach house,” said
head of sales at Savills East Sheen, who listed the home earlier this month.
“Its perfectly pointed roof, careful brickwork and pretty scalloped edges are just like those on a Christmas gingerbread house, making this property simply one of a kind,” she said.
While the almost 2,100-square-foot spread is bursting with curb appeal, its charms don’t end at the front door.
“Inside, buyers can expect to be greeted by a grand entrance hall with a feature fireplace that sets the tone for a welcoming residence with grand proportions,” Ms. Barton said.
Period features are present throughout the four-bedroom home, which has arched doors and windows, a grand reception room, a subterranean media room and a conservatory, currently used as a study.
The home also has a pretty garden with plenty of space for al fresco dining and entertaining.
From its position set back from the road and tucked behind a securely gated courtyard, “this home is afforded with great privacy, making it ideal for those wanting to downsize or in search of a quieter pace of life,” Ms. Barton added.
The property last sold for £700,000 in 2000, listing records show. Mansion Global couldn’t determine the identity of the owner.
