Northwood UK are delighted to offer the former home of musical theatre composer Piers Chater-Robinson and his family (Peter Pan the Musical, The Adventures of Mr. Toad, Through the Looking Glass). The fabulous vaulted space at the top of this house served as the studio for Mr Chater-Robinson, and was the place where he created the musicals that have since delighted thousands of children around the World. What child wouldn't want to sleep here - surely a place where magical happy thoughts are never far away? Secure catches on the windows will prevent any impromptu flying expeditions, and the gates out onto Cabul Road mean no lost boys!

This delightful semi detached house was converted from part of a Victorian School in 1999, when the current owner bought it. The developers took all the delightful period features of the school building, such as the high ceilings, exposed beams, and character sash windows, and worked sympathetically within these walls to create a number of enchanting residential units. The exceptional height of both the windows and the ceilings means that light floods into all the rooms. To the outside there is allocated private parking, a useful shed for storage, and ample place in the mews for children to play and pets to explore.

Whilst there is ample family space within the 1184 Sq Ft of the house, some may prefer to remodel the room arrangement to suit their own preferences. There is the potential to open up the ground floor so that the kitchen is integrated with the main living space, and there may be the opportunity to create a fourth bedroom on the first floor.
