De­scrip­tion: Four bed Vic­to­rian im­proved to in­clude a large home of­fice and secure dou­ble garage Agent: Hunters The own­ers of 24 Lee­son Park in Ranelagh bought about 15 years ago and waited a few years be­fore car­ry­ing out the up­dat­ing that the Vic­to­rian house needed. By then they had a clear idea of what they wanted and that in­cluded a large home of­fice and a secure dou­ble garage.

They re­stored the orig­i­nal fea­tures as re­quired in­clud­ing the lovely dec­o­ra­tive plas­ter­work in the main rooms, floor­boards and win­dow shut­ters and re­worked el­e­ments of the lay­out.

Now the two-storey over gar­den level end-of-ter­race has four bed­rooms, a very smart kitchen-liv­ing area down at gar­den level and two grand in­ter­con­nect­ing re­cep­tion rooms at hal l level. With 271sq m (2,917sq ft) there is plenty of space.


Part of the ren­o­va­tion in­volved com­mis­sion­ing Alan Brown De­sign to fit out the home of­fice in the ex­tended re­turn at gar­den level with cus­tom de­signed shelv­ing and stor­age, and also to de­sign the kitchen.

Lo­cated to the front at gar­den level – and open­ing into a fam­ily room and then out to the rear gar­den – the stylish, well-laid out wal­nut kitchen fea­tures a wall of stor­age, a large gran­ite-topped is­land, and wall and base units fit­ted with high-end ap­pli­ances in­clud­ing twin dish­wash­ers and two ovens. Also down at this level is a large fam­ily bath­room with free­stand­ing bath and a util­ity area tucked un­der the front gran­ite steps.

The four bed­rooms are dou­bles, the grand­est is to the front on the first floor and it is en suite. Two of the bed­rooms are in the re­turns. New own­ers will find lit­tle to do – if they don’t need that large home of­fice, it could, with its dou­ble doors out to the back gar­den and prox­im­ity to the fam­ily room make a great play­room.

The garage to the rear is pretty look­ing with pitched dou­ble roofs, yel­low brick and sash windows. It opens out on to a com­mu­nal area set be­hind elec- tric gates and it pro­vides ex­tra secure park­ing for num­ber 24 which also has park­ing for two cars at the front. Peo­ple who know this road will re­mem­ber that up un­til very re­cently that the front gar­den here fea­tured an enor­mous mon­key puz­zle tree. It died and its height made it dan­ger­ous so it was re­moved and the gran­ite set paving ex­tended to cover where it once stood.
