Enchanting Home and Garden

From the moment you arrive at this exceptional home you will be captivated by its charm. Positioned in a private setting surrounded by gardens you could almost be fooled that you are in the middle of the countryside rather than just minutes from the city. The huge formal living / dining is rich with character, featuring original parquet floors, an open fire and bay windows that overlook the garden. The generous kitchen / family room runs along the rear of the home with floor to ceiling open shelves, Italian chandeliers made from hand beaten copper and French doors that open to the huge sunny courtyard. All five double bedrooms have doors that open onto the garden, the fifth bedroom is located in the charming guest house over the garage. This much admired home has been a staple of the Wadestown House and Garden tour and is on the market for the first time in almost 30 years.
