Perfect West London Loft - Winchester Street, London, W3
Guide Price £1,395,000
Converted from the main building of a former magistrates court, this perfect West London loft house offers bright contemporary living in a great location close to the action in Acton and Chiswick.
The drama of this unique house is immediate as soon as you hit the entrance hall, with the eye immediately drawn to the contemporary staircase that shoots you straight up to the first floor living area and endless ceiling height beyond.
Back on the ground floor level, the entrance hall itself is huge and great for welcoming the many friends that you will undoubtedly attain on buying this house! Big enough in fact to create a small third bedroom around the main window, or just keep as it is, with its intoxicating addition of a reinforced glass trap door access to the wine cellar. (There is a smart walk-in shower room if one did opt for bedroom three.)
The two proper double bedrooms are located either side of the entrance hall and both have private bath/shower rooms and fitted wardrobes. There is a very useful utility room here as well.
Up to the main living space that is, in short, epic! The current owners have carved out a simply fantastic take on loft living, being completely open-plan, with masses of exposed beams and amazing natural light throughout. This 800 sqft of dreamy space is bespoke Gaggenau kitchen at one end and chilled out living room at the other, with its wall of floor to ceiling bi-fold doors opening out on to the private roof terrace.
Just to complete the picture, the owner has put a cute mezzanine above the kitchen – access by a very ‘lofty’ pull down ladder – that provides a great home office space.
This house is just so perfect and really one of the more interesting homes that we have seen for a while. There is a secured parking space included and drivers needing access out of West London can easily flee the rat race via either the A4 or A40, which are both nearby. It is also well served by Acton Central Station nearby and just a 10/15 minute walk down Acton Lane from Chiswick Green, with its open spaces, excellent neighbourhood pubs, The Swan and The Duke of Sussex and quite brilliant French cooking at Le Vacherin.
