A charming and very versatile four-bedroom lateral apartment found on the 2nd floor (with lift) of this highly prized mansion block on this beautiful garden square. This gorgeous apartment has retained its originality and has remained largely unaltered over the decades and thus boasts charming period features to include wood parquet floors and numerous original fireplaces. The property itself is well kept but does require modernisation providing a blank canvas from which to create the perfect statement family home. Accommodation (with 3m+ high ceilings) extends to over 2000 sqft and benefits from an adaptable layout that includes a sizable reception room with dual french doors that lead out to a balcony allowing for pleasant views through mature trees across to the residents' gardens. Further accommodation includes a second large reception room with bay window frontage, a sizable entrance hall-reception and a kitchen diner at the rear with large storage cupboards attached. Two family bathrooms plus additional WCs (to include an traditional 'Thomas Crapper' loo and cistern) complete this rarely available property.
The private residents gardens opposite are landscaped and beautifully maintained with manicured lawns and numerous established trees and flower borders. It is understood that access to these gardens, from those who reside in Wetherby Mansions, is by separate annual subscription via the Earls Court Square Garden Committee.
Wetherby Mansions is a highly desirable Victorian mansion block situated on Earl's Court Square, which is a prestigious garden square within the Royal Borough of Kensington & Chelsea. The building was designated part of the Earl's Court Square Conservation Area in 1998, due to its special historical significance. The square was developed circa 1872-1873 on the site of former farmland once belonging to the Edwardes Family. The square is primarily made up of substantial stuccoed townhouses in the Italianate architectural style as well as several purpose-built mansion blocks of the same era to include Wetherby Mansions and Langham Mansions.
The square is conveniently located near the various shops, restaurants and traditional pubs found along Earls Court Road and Old Brompton Road. Transport links are excellent having Earls Court underground station (Piccadilly, District lines) as well as West Brompton station (under and overground lines), both within a short walk.
