11 Clarendon Road offers not one, but four fabulously appointed and beautifully refurbished apartments.  When approaching the building on this quiet but conveniently located St Helier street you really appreciate the extent of this refurbishment as you are greeted by an exterior that has been finished to a very high standard and setting the benchmark for when you enter the property.

The bright and spacious entrance hallway leads on to the first of the four apartments within this lovely Victorian property.  The apartment has been carpeted throughout and comprises of a large and bright open plan living area, with plenty of space to accommodate your lounge and dining area and the kitchen includes base and eye level units with an integrated fridge, , electric oven and halogen hob and that all important dishwasher .  This room, as with the rest of the apartment, benefits from beautiful high ceilings with the ornate coving having been retained by the developers, as well as the feature fire place.  The dual aspect large sash windows also have their original working shutters.

The good sized double bedroom with feature fireplace has double glazed windows overlooking the garden to the rear of the property. The ensuite bathroom is fitted with a three piece suite, which includes an enviable corner bath with shower over, vanity sink meaning storage is already taken care of, and a wall mounted mirror . Within this room you also have access to a large overhead storage cupboard, a rare addition in a ground floor apartment.  As with all but the basement apartment you have access to a lovely low maintenance communal garden with gravel and paved seating areas and a built in BBQ area.

Moving up to the first floor you pass the shared utility room, which houses an allocated washer/dryer for each of the three apartments, making the very best use of every available space within this property.

This two bedroom first floor apartment further benefits from large sash windows and high ceilings with more of that beautiful ornate coving, allowing for a great light lounge/kitchen/diner.  Once again you’ve a kitchen fitted with base and eye level units, an integrated fridge, electric oven and a well concealed dishwasher.  Bedroom one has a large sash window and a feature fireplace and wall mounted Farho electric heater.  Bedroom two has a double glazed window which overlooks the garden at the rear of the property.  The full sized bathroom has a three piece suite with  panelled bath with shower over, that handy vanity sink and a wall mounted mirror.  You also have the luxury of underfloor heating and a heated towel rail, meaning your toes and towels will be toasty for when you step out of the bath.
On to the top floor and you move on to the last of the one bedroom properties.  Whilst this apartment doesn’t boast ceilings quite as high as the other two it still has excellent height and light for a top floor apartment.  The entrance hall has plenty of storage cupboards, one which contains your water tank, making it the ideal airing cupboard.

This apartment also benefits from a large separate kitchen which is spacious enough to accommodate a table and chairs alongside the already beautifully finished units.  Around the corner and through the archway is the large lounge with another beautifully restored feature fireplace, this one contains a remote controlled electric fire too, making this space instantly cosy on winter nights.  The two sash windows make this room bright and light and  is large enough for a lounge dining option, if you so desire.
The double bedroom has a double glazed window overlooking the rear garden, another fabulous feature fireplace and also has the added benefit of access to the loft space for even more storage options. The large separate bathroom has a three piece suite of bath with shower over, underfloor heating for toasty toes and double glazed window.

Last, but by no means least we leave the main building and access the garden flat by its own private entrance.  The layout of this apartment is similar to apartments one and two, but with the addition of beautiful hardwood flooring in the kitchen/lounge/dining area and underfloor heating throughout the whole apartment. This apartment has two bedrooms, both with double glazed windows.  You also have the added benefit of your own private patio garden, which has outside power, ready for you to plug in and play your favourite music whilst basking in the sunshine.  Not only do you have access to your own outside space, but the apartment further benefits from two large outside storage units to the front of the property, one which includes a sink and utility area and the other perfect for storing bicycles.
Set over four floors 11 Clarendon Road provides multiple options for anyone looking to gain their first step on the property ladder, or those who are perhaps looking for an investment property on the outskirts of town, viewing is a must.
