Muswell Lodge is typical of a traditional Victorian residence and features generously-sized rooms with high, detailed coved ceilings, deep skirtings, three two-storey bay windows and stunning original stained leaded glass windows. The property holds a rich history, which began in 1897 when the house was constructed by Harry Atkin, a local silversmith. Muswell Lodge was then sold on to the Ross brothers who embellished the home with silver-plated door hardware, which is still incorporated today. The third owner was Sir Harold West who was the Chairman of Newton Chambers and it is believed that he landscaped the formal gardens and installed the Art Deco bathrooms.
This magnificent property provides substantial accommodation that is set over three floors, making it a perfect option for a large family. The current owners have completed sympathetic renovations to the home to further elevate the living spaces offered, such as a recently installed hand crafted kitchen by Hancock & Read with Siemens and Neff appliances. They have also exposed and renovated the original woodwork in three of the reception rooms and landscaped the gardens to form the large stone seating terrace to the south westerly aspect.
An attractive external covered storm porch allows access to the entrance vestibule with original mosaic tiles, which leads through feature glazed double doors to the impressive reception hall. The stand-out features of the reception hall are the central archway, detailed coved ceiling, deep skirtings and parquet walnut flooring, all of which combine to create a warm and impressive welcome to the home. Across the ground floor are three main reception rooms, including an opulent drawing room with a stunning marble fireplace and original library display furniture, a formal dining room of grand proportions and an additional sitting room, which links to a useful office and separate study. The heart of the home is the open plan dining kitchen that presents a bright and airy space, accompanied by a high-quality breakfast kitchen with a separate utility/prep kitchen by Hancock & Read and a superb dining area with a feature vaulted ceiling.
The first floor contains the exceptionally spacious master bedroom suite with Hancock & Read fitted wardrobes and an en-suite shower room, two further double bedrooms and an Art Deco Vitrolite family bathroom. There is also a useful laundry room that has ample fitted storage. The additional three bedrooms are situated on the second floor.
