The guest WC is also discreetly place behind the staircase.
The large living room is flooded with light through the wall of floor to ceiling windows. The room is centred around an open fireplace and the contemporary theme is continued with recessed spot lights. Two sliding doors lead to the rear patio and south west facing garden.

In addition, there is the convenience of a spacious utility / laundry room and the plant room.
153 Lansdowne Park is as much about its indoor living space as it is about its outdoor areas.
