When you think of the terraced house, you probably think of Coronation Street and Hilda Ogden. A million miles from this particular terrace – a five bedroom terraced house in Holland Park, London W14.
It was built in the 1960s, presumably with one eye on a newly-minted hipster, who wanted a bit of space and a bit of style, which this modernist take on the terrace certainly provides. It’s also in an affluent area and according to the agent, ‘extraordinarily good value for money’ in light of the area. I dread to think how much other houses in the area sell for if this is ‘good value’.
Anyway, you are no doubt paying a premium for that postcode and being part of a private development within ‘well-established communal gardens’ and being next door to the grade I-listed Debenham House – the houses were built in the grounds of the Arts and Crafts house.
In terms of space, you get two reception rooms, a kitchen/breakfast room, a master bedroom and bathroom, four further bedrooms, two additional bathrooms, a utility room, cloakroom, an integrated garage and off-street parking. You also get a south facing rear garden.
Recently refurbished and on the market now, the house sells for – wait for it – £2,750,000.
