‘Modest’ west London cottage with iceberg basement extension that more than doubled size for sale for GBP3.25m

It is located in a beautiful street in a exclusive west London enclave. However, the asking price for this modest-looking cottage of GBP3.25million seems excessive. North Lodge is surrounded by townhouses and sits next to a park. What appears to be a small period bungalow is actually a large underground lair that lies beneath the front garden. It covers 1,108sq feet and is the largest iceberg property in the street. Skylights flood the kitchen-dining room with light / Knight Frank. The subterranean addition to the house in Barons Court also has three bedrooms on the ground level and a smaller space that could be used as a bedroom or study. There are four bathrooms, an open-plan kitchen/dining room and a small living area. The basement is currently being used as an overspill living area for the property. It is also available for short-term rental for GBP10,000 per year. Harry Anthony, head for lettings at Knight Frank’s Fulham office, stated that the basement with its high ceilings, skylights and open-plan kitchen-dining room could be used by any tenant or owner. He said that the basement has a lot of space. “It’s rare to find a basement this large in a four-bed house. The ideal owner would be creative and able to put their own stamp on it. The space could be used for recording studios, gallery spaces, yoga studios, large gyms, or even as a games area. It is ideal for those who want privacy.
