RAVENSCOURT PARK, LONDON,
UNIQUE L-SHAPED HOME WITH ART STUDIO FOR SALE IN ASKEW VILLAGE
2-4 Greenside Road is tucked away on a quiet residential road close to Ravenscourt Park. The two-bedroom artist’s home boasts an unconventional L-shaped design and double-height ceilings in the reception area and art studio. This one-of-a-kind home benefits from off-street parking and is on the market for in excess of £1.85 million through local experts Finlay Brewer.
The façade of the property belies the truly impressive proportions of the house. Upon entering the double ‘garage’-style doors there is a generously wide hallway with a ‘hidden’ staircase leading to a first floor guest bedroom. Progressing down the hall a sense of the artist’s influence upon the house becomes apparent with the walls awash with contemporary and classical art. You would be forgiven for thinking you were stepping into a room in the National Portrait Gallery.
The first bathroom with shower is off the main hallway and has a tiled floor and wooden finishes across the units. The hallway continues down to the stylish open-plan kitchen/dining room with integrated units finished in bright white to complement the four skylights that illuminate the room.
A sliding door leads to the dramatic 1,100 sq. ft. reception area serving as the focal point of the home. The impressive space has a double-height vaulted ceiling with exposed wood beams holding four large skylights creating a luminous atmosphere. The walls are painted in a neutral colour designed to emphasis the effect of the natural light. This spacious room is perfect for entertaining guests or hosting dinner parties or indeed musical recitals.
Adjacent to the reception area and through an expansive wood-framed entrance is the artist’s studio. Offering plenty of space and lit by an overhead skylight, the studio would be ideally suited to an artist or creative professional. Alternatively, the studio has potential to be transformed into a secondary reception area or an additional bedroom. Stairs lead up to a private walled roof terrace.
There is a further staircase from the main reception area up to the master bedroom, complete with en suite bathroom. The windows provide an elevated view over the reception area and bathe the room in natural light.
Greenside Road is conveniently located a short walk from both Ravenscourt Park station (eight minutes) and Goldhawk Road tube station (10 minutes), providing quick transport links to amenities in Hammersmith and Westfield London filled with high-street favourites. Across the road is Ravenscourt Park, a scenic green space complete with tennis courts, five-a-side football and 18th century walled gardens. Chiswick High Road is 15 minutes away with boutique shops, restaurants and gastropubs, such as The George IV, a favourite with locals.
The property contains an abundance of storage space throughout, including built-in cupboards in the primary reception room, expansive eaves storage in the master bedroom and additional space in the second reception room.
For families the surrounding area has a range of superb schools in close vicinity including Latymer Upper School, the Godolphin and Latymer School and Orchard House School.
