DESCRIPTION: An impressive and elegant Victorian bay fronted villa. Since the purchase of the property, the current owner has invested into the refurbishment of this fine family home, giving much care and attention into its modernisation whilst retaining many period features. These include high ceilings with cornice and picture rails, open fireplaces with 'Fireview' log burners and sash windows (many with recently fitted plantation shutters by 'Sanderson').
There is a spacious entrance hall with engineered oak flooring that continues into the kitchen/dining room. The sitting room at the front has been decorated with calm subdued period colours together with a fireplace flanked by storage cupboards and a bay fronted window with shutters.
The kitchen/dining room forms part of the ground floor extension creating a lovely bright open plan space with ceiling skylight lantern. The quality kitchen units have been painted in stylish grey with contrasting granite work surfaces. There is a window to the side and double opening doors to the rear garden. The open plan design continues into the family room with fireplace and log burner. To the rear of the kitchen is a useful utility room and cloakroom.
The beautiful balustraded staircase rises to the first-floor landing. There is potential to create an additional bedroom and bathroom in the loft with access from the landing (subject to planning permission).
The main bedroom is positioned at the front with bay window and fireplace with period surround. The second bedroom has the advantage of built in cupboards and a vanity unit and the third bedroom positioned at the rear of the property.
A family bathroom with separate shower cubicle serves these bedrooms along with a separate WC.
The front is laid to lawn and a pathway to the front door approached via a wrought iron gate with matching railings to the front boundary.
The rear garden is enclosed by an attractive period brick wall to one side and is approached over a deep paved flagstone terrace creating a generous relaxing/entertaining area. Steps lead to a raised area of lawn bordered by mature shrubs to provide colour and screening.
Pathway leading to the DETACHED GARAGE AND STUDIO/HOME OFFICE.
The brick built spacious studio/home office provides broadband access and has power and light connected with double opening doors leading out to the garden. The double garage can be accessed from the garden and has an electrically operated up and over door, with power and light connected.
