"An elegant spiral staircase with open, stone treads ascends to the upper levels beneath a tunnel of light."
This wonderfully bright three-bedroom house, with private garden and off-street parking for two cars, occupies an excellent position on Elliott Square, a coveted collection of 1960s townhouses located close to the north entrance of Primrose Hill park. Internal accommodation currently measures approximately 1,830 sq ft with full planning permission in place for an additional storey of around 500 sq ft.
Entry is via the brick-paved driveway, to an open-plan kitchen, dining and living room. A stainless-steel kitchen island occupies the centre of the plan, extending toward the rear alongside bespoke walnut-veneer cabinetry. Light pours through glazing at the opposing aspects and is controlled at the front by brise soleil with electric louvres. Glazed sliding doors open from the dining space onto a private, paved garden of over 3o ft in length. At the front of the house a pivot door opens to a wet room with guest WC.
An elegant spiral staircase with open, stone treads forms the spine of the house, ascending to the upper levels beneath a tunnel of light from glazing overhead. The first floor is arranged as an expansive double reception, with balcony, which can be divided with the use of sliding pocket doors. On the second floor there are three bedrooms and a ‘jack-and-jill’ shower room with glazed ceiling. The master bedroom has substantial built-in wardrobes and a separate WC. Utilities are on the landing, behind bi-fold doors.
Elliott Square forms part of the wider Chalcot Estate, a collection of nine individual ‘sectors’ that were built by Eton College from the middle of the 19th century. The houses on Elliott Square are constructed of a dark brown brick with two vertical rows of windows separated by a white-painted profiled metal cladding. They form two terraces, with front elevations facing the internal square and, in this case, rear elevations set back from King Henry’s Road by the depth of their rear gardens.
Primrose Hill and the nearby village are highly coveted areas of wide, picturesque streets, dotted with excellent pubs, delis, restaurants and boutiques, including a weekly farmer’s market on Saturdays. The green open spaces of Primrose Hill park are approximately three minutes’ walk. Many of London’s best primary and secondary schools are within close proximity.
The house is brilliantly located between Swiss Cottage (Jubilee Line) & Chalk Farm (Northern Line) underground stations.
