Househunters struggling to find that elusive property in west London with “something a bit different” should take a gander at this plush pad.
Why buy a typically British home in a busy street when you can enjoy the continental flair of a seven-bedroom Italian villa in an oasis of calm in Ealing ?
Tucked away behind private gates in a “tranquil setting” between Ealing Common and Ealing Broadway , this luxury living space is going for a song at just £3.5 million.
This property will literally set you apart from your neighbours with its 4,171 square foot floor area.
That includes a generously-sized garden with a fountain centrepiece said to be ideal “for entertaining” - although you could also pot a plant if you have time between parties.
There’s also a double garage, for your weekday motor and that vintage sports car you only take out for a spin on Sundays.
Moving inside, you’ll find yourself in an “extremely bright and spacious” reception room.
Go a little further and you’ll discover an octagonal-shaped kitchen and dining area with exposed timber beams. (After all, you don’t want guests to think you’re a square.)
Peer into the property’s seven double bedrooms and you’ll find that no fewer than four of them have well-appointed ensuite bathrooms.
The bedroom at the top of the house has the cosiness of an attic, with beams and skylight windows, but still offers plenty of space.
The bedroom in the basement benefits from natural light thanks to a feature staircase.
Ealing Sales, which is marketing the property, said: “The high-quality finish to many of the rooms is exceptional, including hidden speakers and lighting in the ornate coving."
It also point out other features you may have missed such as “mood lighting, stone archways and an abundance of marble”.
It’s no surprise when the estate agent concludes that “internal viewing is highly recommended to fully appreciate this unique property”.
We know what you’re thinking: it looks great, but there’s something important missing.
Fear not, because the agent confirms that the property comes with planning permission for a swimming pool.
That’s one less thing to worry about.
