Fortfield Terrace has a rich history dating back to 1793 and was designed by Polish architect Michael Novelovski, for the Lord of the manor. The Grand Duchess Elena of Russia and Elizabeth Barratt-Browning stayed within the terrace during the 19th century.
This apartment is accessed from the front of the terrace via an outside, stone staircase, descending to a courtyard entrance.
An entrance porch and substantial front door lead to a spacious reception hall which has fitted storage cupboards and glazed double doors to a well proportioned sitting room, which has two windows to the south side and an attractive fireplace with gas fire.
The kitchen/breakfast room is large enough to accommodate a breakfast table and offers an excellent range of storage units, work surfaces, tiled splashbacks and built-in appliances comprising split-level electric oven, gas hob, canopy cooker hood and integrated fridge and dishwasher. The kitchen also houses the wall mounted gas fired boiler for central heating and hot water and a rear door accessing the garden.
