Lovely 4 bedroom house 15 min walk to Portobello Road

Renovated throughout, lots of light and open space. 1950s semi now much altered. Open plan kitchen/dining/sitting room with wood burner. Comfortable, well-equipped kitchen with breakfast bar.

Two double bedrooms, child`s room with loft bed and pull out bed underneath, and teenager room with single bed. Sitting room with small sofa bed. Garden studio with small double sofabed and (down a couple of steps and through toolshed) a loo and basin.

Garden front and back. BBQ (gas and charcoal), outside table and chairs. Bench in front garden for coffee in the morning sunshine. NB garden is a work in progress!

We have (yikes!) four cats, who need feeding morning and night but are otherwise fairly independent. There is a cat flap and they come and go as they wish. We shut them downstairs at night so they don't wake us with their nocturnal antics.
