Knight Frank (020 7349 4300, www.knightfrank.com) is now selling a ‘country cottage’ on London’s Kings Road. A charming three to four-bed maisonette with period features sourced from reclamation yards, including old banisters amalgamated into the kitchen, is now for sale. The place feels homely but also is well situated for amenities in the Kings and Fulham Roads in the heart of town.

The agent describes the property set over three floors and with a balcony off the kitchen as flexible living.

‘You can use three bedrooms and the fourth can become a study and you can have one or two reception rooms depending on how you want to use the space,’ says John Waters from Knight Frank’s new Chelsea office.

Mr Waters also points out that as the majority of properties in London are now ‘overwhelmingly beige, it is interesting to see a quirky home with odd-shaped rooms and reclaimed pieces. It is eco-friendly too, he adds. ‘

The property has 83 years remaining on the lease and is on offer for a guide price of £1.35 million.
