6 Carlton Street is an elegant Georgian townhouse offering spacious, comfortable and bright accommodation over ground, lower ground, first and second floors. With north east and south west aspects there is plenty of natural light throughout the day enhanced by the delightful oval cupola crowning the magnificent stone stair. The accommodation is well-presented throughout and successfully retains many attractive period features. These include the original flagstone floors, working shutters, astragal windows and ornate plaster work. There is particularly fine reception space, with the sitting/dining room on the ground floor and the drawing room on the first floor, complemented by a home office, dining kitchen with Aga, five good sized bedrooms and two well appointed bathrooms, making this is an exceptional family home.
While fully integral to the main house, the lower ground floor offers a further sitting room, 2 bedrooms, shower room and small kitchen and can be used as a self-contained flat, ideally suited to a nanny, relatives or as a rental investment.
Also on the lower ground floor is a WC and utility room with access to the garden. This allows the main house to retain garden access should the flat be used separately.
To the rear of the house there is a delightful south-west facing garden, with a central lawn and colourful, well-stocked borders. To the front of the property there is a basement area with direct access to the lower ground floor, and three under-pavement cellars.
