Regina Terrace, Ealing, London, W13 – £800,000
The house is set back from the quiet residential street in West Ealing/Northfields behind a private gate and paved courtyard.
Entry is to a traditional hallway, off which a well-proportioned reception room is found to the left with a large bay window looking out to Regina Terrace.
To the rear of the ground floor a kitchen leads to a bright conservatory area, the light from which floods into a separate dining room thanks to an in-house window.
From the conservatory is the garden, that sacred outdoor space not afforded apartment dwelling. Being paved puts it in an ideal low maintenance state – ready to be enjoyed more than relentlessly maintained – and equally serves as a blank page if green-fingered ambitions took hold.
Also on the ground floor is a WC, located off the conservatory.
Upstairs, the spacious master bedroom faces the front of the house with a large bay window that contributes a leafy outlook.
At the rear of the property are two more bedrooms, with versatility for the single of the two to be used as an office, home gym or nursery.
The modern, tiled bathroom benefits from a boiler-powered shower over the bath.
Located on a quiet and leafy street, the house is less than 10 minutes' walk from the independent local shops and cafes on Northfield Avenue.
Ealing Broadway for big retailers (and a cheeky Nando's) is just as easy to get to by public transport or a 20 minute walk.
Transport links into London are numerous and all nearby: West Ealing station, a 10 minute walk away, has the brand new Elizabeth line or overground trains to Paddington in under 20 minutes.
Northfields & Ealing Broadway stations put the Piccadilly, Central and District lines all within easy reach.
Proximity to outdoor space is unparalleled with Dean Gardens only 2 minute's walk away, and both Walpole Park and Lammas Park less than 15 minutes away.

When the time is right to start a family, there are some fantastic local primary and secondary schools all within walking distance and rated Good or Outstanding by Ofsted, as well as Clifton Lodge independent school.
What the owners love: "This was our first home as newlyweds and we've loved living here and couldn't imagine moving until the grandkids came along.
It's a lovely quiet, tree-lined street with great neighbours, some of whom have been here longer than we have, and we've been here 44 years! There is a mix of young families and retirees on the street and we all look out for each other.
The wider community is very friendly and supportive too, and there are many local groups from Ealing wildlife group to Ealing repair café not to mention all the fitness-related groups and everything else in between. Ealing also has its own annual marathon and is home to London's oldest allotments which are a couple of streets away.
Our daughters went to school locally and it was great having Walpole and Lammas Park nearby with Elthorne & Bunny park not too far away either. There was always lots on offer for young children and West Ealing library was a firm favourite.
The transport links are superb and within easy reach. West Ealing mainline station with the new Elizabeth line, as well as Northfields & Ealing Broadway giving access to the Piccadilly, central and district lines. The bus routes are extensive too and the transport links was one of the main reasons we chose this locality. It's great when we need to get home from central London gigs and concerts and when our daughters were teenagers. Also a real boon whilst working in central London and having to travel all over the city for client meetings.
We love being able to walk to the independent shops on Northfields Avenue and to be able to enjoy all types of cuisine on our doorstep. Particularly useful is having Sainsbury's and Waitrose nearby, together with the 24-hour continental shops. I shall miss popping out to buy fresh herbs and olives any time of day or night! Also lovely is having the weekly farmers market and all the fresh produce on offer.
As retirees, we really enjoy the local music scene and the annual Blues festival in Walpole park. The theatre is within walking distance and the Watermans Arts Centre with its cinema and theatre, on the river in Brentford is a short bus ride away.
All in all, it's been a wonderful place to live and bring up our family with lots to offer at every stage of our lives and we will really miss it."
The house is ready to move into, combining modern features and period charm.
