Features and description

  • Freehold
This beautiful semi-detached Victorian house is situated on Queen’s Mead Road in Bromley. Brick-fronted and with wide bay windows on the ground and first floors, the five-bedroom home has a private garden and enjoys views across the green space of Queen’s Mead Recreation Ground. The owners have lovingly renovated throughout, seamlessly blending original features with modern interventions, resulting in a carefully considered home defined by its neutral colour palette and minimal aesthetic.

The Tour

The house is set back from a front garden that has been adapted for parking, with enough space for two cars. A mature olive tree sits in one corner. The driveway leads to a dark green door with inset obscured glazing, which opens into the ground floor hallway.

Solid oak flooring flows across the hall, where there is a wc, and a decorative radiator cover and open shelving on the left-hand wall finished in a soft grey tone. The living room unfolds behind a dark grey door at the front of the plan, with excellent levels of natural light welcomed through a wide bay window. The plastered and painted walls are finished in gentle grey/green, with white picture rails providing a subtle contrast. A handsome stone surround wraps around a black fire grate, and there are slim open shelves set within alcoves on either side.

The rear of the plan has been sensitively opened up, with different zones demarcating the kitchen, living and dining rooms. The solid oak floor continues in the living room where there is a black-framed side window. The kitchen lies at the rear of the plan; this has a Rangemaster oven and hob, with black cabinetry above and below. Timber has been used for the work surface and island, the latter of which has black cabinetry facing towards the kitchen and light cabinetry facing towards the dining area. There is a cloakroom and separate utility room off the main living space, The dining area is set below a section of panelled ceiling, with a rough-hewn concrete floor grounding the space. Bench seating in black timber has been introduced below tall bi-fold glazing that opens to the garden. There is a WC and separate utility room off the space, with square floor tiles and grey/green walls. The utility room has a worktop and sink, with a wide, black-framed window allowing natural light in.

A set of stairs with a central runner, black balustrade and spindles ascends to the first floor. The main bedroom lies at the front of the plan and has the same material palette as downstairs. A white radiator sits beneath the wide bay window; there are floor-to-ceiling wardrobes and open shelves for storage. What was once the adjacent single bedroom has been converted to a generous walk-in dressing room.

There are two further double bedrooms to the rear of the plan, finished in the same palette as the main bedroom and illuminated by a black-framed window with views over the garden. The shower/WC has black hexagonal floor tiles, with metro tiles on the walls and a black-framed obscured window providing natural light. The shower has a glass frameless screen and silver sanitaryware.

Stairs ascend from the first-floor hall to the loft, where natural light is welcomed through a roof light with eaves storage underneath. The two double bedrooms on this level have light grey carpets, white walls, black-framed sash windows with black radiators underneath, and three-door wardrobes in muted grey. There is a bathroom on this level with hidden storage sections and similar tiling to the bathroom on the level below.

Outdoor Space

The garden stretches back from the house in a south-easterly direction. It can be accessed via either the bi-fold glazing from the dining area, the glazed double height kitchen door or the side access from the street. There is a central lawn with raised timber planters to both sides, and a timber-clad shed at the rear. A stone patio area with timber bench seating provides a perfect spot for alfresco dining.

The Area
