Editorial Team | 16th December, 2020
21 Brook Green is a spectacular, elegant and substantial 6-bedroom end-of terrace Victorian family home overlooking the prestigious Brook Green. This house, measuring approximately 3,244 sq. ft., is on the market for the first time in over 25 years, in which time its owners have lovingly restored the original period features and created a practical and spacious home exuding charm and character.
Enjoying views onto Brook Green, this unique family home, perfect for entertaining, is available through West London specialists, Finlay Brewer for £4,250,000.
Set back from the road, the home has an elegant London Yellow Stock brick frontage, with original Victorian sash windows and handsome white bay windows. A double grand entrance hall leads into the formal drawing room and generous dining room with intricate, detailed cornicing, high ceilings and full height French doors and of course the wonderful views over Brook Green.
Beautiful polished hardwood African Walnut flooring runs throughout the ground floor. The hallway has a number of discrete storage cupboards and an elegant guest cloakroom, leading to a converted basement with playroom, pantry, utility room and extensive storage space.
The hallway leads on to the wonderfully bright kitchen/breakfast/family room. The bespoke Nelson Design sold oak kitchen has granite worktops with a central island, a Wolf Gourmand cooker and an American fridge/freezer. A family dining and sitting area leads out to the beautifully landscaped, mature, southerly garden.
Leading up the windowed grand staircase, the first-floor features one of the home’s standout rooms - a fabulous southerly antique oak-panelled library, which provides the perfect home office for study. Continuing on the first floor is a large family bathroom, bright guest room with views overlooking the Green, and a magnificent landing with large windows filling the space with natural light and benefitting from views directly onto green space.
The second floor has a further three large bedrooms and a family bathroom. The master bedroom suite encompasses the entire top floor with magnificent en-suite bathroom (double sinks and walk-in double shower room), plenty of built-in wardrobe space, and windows on three sides with glorious unobstructed views across and up Brook Green.
The property benefits from a number of period features, including 7 Victorian fireplaces (6 wood-burning and complete with antique surrounds), 19th Century sash windows and original cornicing. Providing the perfect blend of old and new, each bathroom has been modernised with imported Italian Carrera marble on the walls and floors, with underfloor heating.
Paul Cosgrove, Director at Finlay Brewer comments: “It is exceptionally rare for period homes of this calibre to come to market, especially one so well located and with such wonderful open views. This home exudes character throughout and has a host of original Victorian features. We anticipate it will be popular with growing families as you have up to six bedrooms and a host of excellent schools nearby.”
Brook Green, situated between Hammersmith and Shepherd’s Bush, is one of West London’s finest garden squares, characterised by a mixture of elegant Georgian and Victorian houses alongside newly built properties. This desirable haven has a seemingly calmer and quieter atmosphere than its neighbours without compromising on proximity to independent shops, restaurants and cafes in the immediate vicinity as well as the retail expanse of Westfield London, which is only 15 minutes away by foot.
Additionally, Brook Green is close to a great selection of private and state schools and facilities, including the highly regarded St Paul’s Girls’ School, which is located moments from the house. Other education institutions nearby are Bute House, Ecole Francaise Jacques Prevert, Colet Court, Sacred Heart High School and Godolphin and Latymer School. Brook Green is a six-minute walk to Hammersmith station (Piccadilly, District, Circle and Hammersmith and City Lines), and is 10 minutes from both the Overground at Kensington Olympia and the Central Line at Shepherds Bush.
