If you're looking for a historic property with modern day charm or fancy walking in the footsteps of a famous author, then this is the home for you.

The property, where English poet and novelist Thomas Hardy lived between 1878-1881, comes complete with its own English Heritage Blue Plaque. However, the current owners have updated, upgraded and extended the apartment to a bright and modernly designed family home without compromising the beautiful character of the apartment.

Spread over two floors and located on Trinity Road in South West London within walking distance to Wandsworth Common, the flat consists of three double bedrooms, two bathrooms, a dine-in kitchen and an impressive reception and living room.

But what really sets this home apart from others in the area is the private roof terrace. Imagine soaking up the sun in the warmer months, enjoying a cup of coffee in the morning or dining alfresco and looking out across the city from your very own rooftop.

In addition to this, you also have access to a sizeable private garden, perfect for hosting friends or family.

On the first floor you'll find the living areas, made up of a large reception room with lofty ceilings and dual aspect windows that allow the natural light to flood into the characterful space. You'll also find a contemporary family bathroom on this level of the property, as well as the kitchen/diner, which comes with a charming farmhouse sink, and all of the updated kitchen appliances that you could want or need.

On the second floor there are two generously sized double bedrooms, as well as a shower room and the fantastic private roof terrace.

The top floor, or attic level, houses the third double bedroom, which is also currently being used as a study. You'll find plenty of additional eaves storage on either side of this bedroom too.

The property is currently on the market for £995,000 via Knight Frank.
