Forming part of the exclusive The Steils development surrounded by greenery and lit walkways weaving through the development and its gardens, 15/5 The Steils is a magnificent four bedroom, second-floor apartment offering luxury family accommodation spread over 1950 square feet. The property is incorporated in a converted B-listed Victorian building, dating back to 1870, creating a perfect blend of period features, including soaring ceilings, and contemporary interiors.

Tucked behind a mature and beautifully landscaped garden, the imposing sandstone building makes a grand first impression. A secure entry phone system gives access to the building, where a maintained communal foyer leads to the six apartments. Once inside, you are welcomed by a most impressive reception hallway, spanning over 34 feet in length, with excellent built-in storage. Here, solid wood flooring, soaring ceilings, a ceiling rose, and decorative cornicing offer the first glimpse of the impressive interiors to follow. Arranged around a feature living flame gas fire and enjoying far-reaching views from a 12-pane, double-glazed sash-and-case window, is a large living room.

This south-facing, formal reception room enjoys a generous footprint for furniture arrangements and comes with access to a small neighbouring box room with a window, ideal as a bijou home office or excellent storage space.

The heart of this family home is a stunning dining kitchen. Boasting a triple-aspect with delightful views, the attractive kitchen has been fitted with quality Shaker-style timber units, framed by Corian worktops and slate flooring. It hides an impressive range of integrated appliances, including dishwasher, washing machine, tumble dryer, double eye-level oven, gas hob with an extractor hood and incorporated space for an American-style fridge/freezer. A built-in seating area, in an American-diner style, creates the perfect space for a quick lunch or socialising while cooking. A door conveniently connects the kitchen directly to the formal dining room. This large second reception room (also accessed from the hallway) is currently used as both a dining room and a family/TV room. The property offers four substantial double bedrooms.  

The particularly large master bedroom, with twin windows, could also be utilised as a third reception room, if required. The three remaining double bedrooms all enjoy excellent fitted wardrobe space. A four-piece family bathroom and a separate three-piece shower room complete the impressive accommodation. Both the bathroom and the shower room are generous in size and attractively presented with Travertine-stone tiling, contemporary wall-hung basins and WC-suites, and modern chrome fixtures. Gas central heating and period-styled sash-and-case double glazed windows ensure a warm yet cost-effective living environment all year round.

Externally, the property has access to a beautiful front communal garden, belonging to the residents of number 15, and a large rear courtyard garden, in addition to communal garden grounds in the development. Allocated residents’ parking and visitors’ parking is available.
