In the know
Sotheby Road’s smartness is apparent from the off. A stained-glass front door leads into an ornately tiled hallway, and on the left is one of two sitting rooms, which has rich red walls and a floor-to-ceiling (and wall-to-wall) bookshelf with a library ladder. Straight ahead, there’s a large AGA in the kitchen, and in the yellow-walled dining room, a table for six. The garden, through glass doors, is dotted with potted plants, and on the way to the first floor you’ll find the marbled bathroom.
Upstairs, you’ll come to the sitting room, with dark wooden floorboards and a sweeping bay window. There’s a chessboard on a wooden side table, surrounded by a trio of sofas. Head up again for the second bathroom, flanked by the second bedroom (with a double bed) and the third bedroom, which is cornflower blue, and has a child-size bed. The master bedroom, with its skylights and bare beams, is on the very top floor.
The home comes with a resident cat, and guests will be asked to feed it daily.
There are no wardrobes in the bedrooms so we will provide hanging rails for storage.
There is a small double bed in the second bedroom. It can sleep two people, but is more comfortable for one.
The bed in the third bedroom is child-sized.
This home doesn't have air conditioning. Between June and September, we'll place fans in each bedroom. Please let us know if you'd like fans outside the summer period.
The fireplaces in this home are ornamental.
