THE LIGHT GOES ON, ON OLD BROADWAY FEATURING A SUN
Old Broadway is a truly distinctive location, built between 1910 and 1912 by a Ukrainian émigré, Emmanuel Nove, it is a combined selection of stunning Edwardian detached and semi-detached dwellings. Inspired by the arts and crafts movement the homes variously feature gables, high pitched roofs, balconies, magnificent stained glass, and rich Accrington brick elevations. It’s completed with a central grassed reservation and roundabouts to give the classic feel of a boulevard. Such is the cachet of the location it has attracted over the years such celebrities as Anthony Wilson and Richard & Judy. It was understandably, incorporated in 1991 into the Conservation area to ensure the buildings and quality of the space between them is retained.
And so, to our clients, who for years like so many others, had loved, admired, and aspired to live here. That day was realised when this four-bedroom Edwardian semi, which had been cared for but had not moved with the times, became theirs. As a result, they embarked on an ambitious programme of improvements that can only be described as a work of heart.
For starters, windows were replaced with custom made Accoya frames and double glazing. This environmentally friendly wood not only insulates the home, but they come with a 50-year guarantee. This included the front door, to help seal the whole and it even appears on the balcony, where it was machined to perfection, such is the loving consideration given to the project. Meanwhile stained glass was carefully removed and then encapsulated for posterity.
The stunning reception hall features oak parquet flooring which flows through to the kitchen and has been painstakingly restored to match vintage and contemporary standards whilst the reworking of the space has allowed the creation of a living kitchen, beautifully designed by Wren. This bespoke arrangement features extensive Miele appliances which include a Wi-Fi link and such detail as a cooker hood with maximum suppression. It does mean that you can enjoy a glass of chilled Chablis from your wine fridge in peace and quiet whilst you admire the quartz worktops and enamel double sink basin, not forgetting to alter the mood lighting to suit your needs. It is all quite breath-taking.
As you slip into the lounge, you will feel on cloud 9, literally, as this is the underlay beneath a deep pile carpet that adds a sumptuous feel and embraces you as you luxuriate in the warmth of one of the Clearview log burners that celebrates and highlights the quality of life here.
Upstairs, the same meticulous care appears again with the luxurious bathroom completely reimagined with antique style tiling, a free-standing bath, all fittings are by Belgravia, whilst the shower has been designed to forma wet room arrangement and of course, they installed underfloor heating. The standards are upheld in the ensuite with high end German engineered fittings and further underfloor heating.
When I sat down with our clients it felt more like and interview given the depth of detail. I want to finish with the balcony scene, only fitting for Broadway when I thought I had recorded every feature and that was when I was told about Cheshire Joinery machining the Accoya for it, how the leadwork was redesigned and that the woodwork was treated lovingly with Dulux Weather Shield. The sum of the parts are greater than the whole here and it makes for an utterly unique offering.
