Probably designed by renowned architect John Love Seaton Dahl and believed to have been built circa 1918 for returning war veteran, Major General J Harrington OBE, Kelston was a grand house built in an appealing Queen Anne revival style. Over the years the building fell into disrepair and since being acquired by the current owners, has been the subject of an extensive and meticulous programme of repair and refurbishment. It has been successfully divided to provide two handsome houses of particularly generous proportions, Kelston East and the subject property, Kelston West. The owners have been sympathetic to the original building restoring or replicating original detailing and features which are enhanced by smart contemporary detailing and a complimentary colour palette throughout.

Approached via a gated driveway, Kelston West enjoys the original entrance to the house with its grand canopy with ornate carved decorative detail and substantial door opening to the impressive reception hall which sets the tone for the entire house. The accommodation totals around 2776 sq ft and includes a generous sitting room with provision for an open fire and leading to the splendid kitchen/dining room with quartz tops and integrated appliances, a utility room and cloakroom. 0ver the first and second floors there are four generous bedrooms (the master with en-suite bath and dressing rooms) and two bathrooms. There are gardens to the front, side and rear which are to be beautifully landscaped and there is ample parking.
