A new extension, kitchen diner and a period facelift have more than doubled the value of this Whitehall Conservation Area home
A four bedroom family home in Archway has more than doubled its value with a facelift that saw its kitchen remodelled into a modern, sleek space with clean lines and sheer finishes as part of a new extension.
The house on the tree-lined Parolles Road in the Whitehall Conservation Area was sold for £695,000 in December 2012, and is now on the market for over double the value at £1,550,000.
At the front of property, the red-brick home is entered by way of a Victorian style black and white tiled garden path leading through the front garden. Inside, the kitchen diner features modern integrated appliances, statement drop pendant lighting and is flooded with light by way of retractable doors which lead out onto a small but sweet landscaped garden with steps and a patio area.
Despite maintaining a number of period features such as detailed cornicing, sash windows and high ceilings, the home has been environmentally renovated with double glazing throughout which both allow the property to be bathed in light and keep in heat, generated in part from a wood burning stove in the through lounge with wooden flooring.
A stylish revamp has added a touch of elegance to the home. The main bathroom is tiled in a contemporary fashion whilst licks of stone blue and teal linger on the skirting boards uplifting the duck egg blue walls. On the top floor is a well presented fourth bedroom with ample storage and en-suite facilities with a walk-in shower.
In its current guise the home is filled to the brim with Art Deco inspired furniture, from emerald green velvet armchairs to bright blue kitchen chairs and teak storage units, combining the period elements of the property with modern furnishings meshed in seamless harmony with the contemporary extension.
The home would make a perfect family base for buyers with young children or looking to start a family, with three double bedrooms on its first floor and situation in close proximity to a number of popular schools including St Joseph’s Primary Catholic School. The Northern line is found close by for Underground routes and local bus routes are not far away.
The house on Parolles Road, Whitehall Conservation Area, Archway, N19 is on the market for £1,550,000 with Greene & Co.
