Part exchange available. Conveniently positioned, minutes from transport facilities and local amenities, a period sandstone, five/six bedroom detached villa, originally dating from circa 1890. Internally, the property has been comprehensively redesigned and reworked in recent years and now offers versatile family accommodation with four public rooms and five/six bedrooms, formed over two substantial levels on a good-sized corner plot.
This property is as unique as it is beautiful! The traditional building has been well maintained both internally and externally, to create fantastic and flexible accommodation, which only a viewing will qualify. The interior offers sophisticated living space, with period detailing including ornate cornicing, fireplaces and skirtings, which is inherent with a home of this age and character. The property requires a level of modernisation and refurbishment - but allows an incoming purchaser to stamp their own mark on this glorious home.
Externally, you will notice the house has been designed to make a strikingly beautiful visual statement. There is an attached single garage (with power and light), which offers the very real possibility of being converted into further living accommodation (subject to obtaining the necessary consents). There is also a carriage driveway providing off road parking for a number of vehicles. The property is surrounded by carefully tended gardens, lawned to the front and screened by a variety of mature trees. The fully enclosed rear garden consists of a number of individual vegetable plots of differing varieties. This area also benefits from a feature patio area and a barbecue zone.
The subjects are entered via a private vestibule, which opens into a large welcoming reception hallway, with staircase off to the upper landing and access to all ground floor apartments. The lounge is of palatial proportions, with both high ceilings and intricate ceiling cornicing. The picture window to the front aspect floods the room with natural light. The feature fireplace is the key focal point of this room. The separate dining room has ample space for a dining table and chairs for more formal dining with friends and family. The bay window to the front aspect offers interesting views of the gardens.
A study/bedroom six is also located on the ground floor and offers versatile accommodation and features a picture window to the rear aspect. This room benefits from an en-suite shower room and might suit an elderly relative or those requiring live/work arrangements. A family room is also located on the ground floor and is sure to be a popular feature with younger members of the family and for ``mum keeping an eye’’, as this room is located just off the kitchen. The ‘L’ shaped kitchen/diner has been well fitted to include a good range of floor and wall mounted units, with a striking work surface, which provides a fashionable and efficient workspace. It further benefits from a double oven, gas hob, extractor hood and two pantry cupboards – making this the ideal kitchen for an aspiring chef! There is also space for an upright fridge/freezer. There is ample room in this area for a table and chairs for more informal dining and this zone is certain to become the very ‘heart’ of the home. A spacious boiler/laundry room (restricted head height) is located off the kitchen and is plumbed for a washing machine and has space for a tumble dryer.
The original sweeping staircase leads to first floor level, revealing five substantial bedrooms and a fantastic family bathroom. The landing is flooded with natural light from the Velux window. Access to the loft space can be gained from the landing. This area is prime for development into additional living space if desired (STPP). The master bedroom is the last word in luxury with a bay window offering tremendous views over the local park. All of the bedrooms have space for additional freestanding furniture if required. The fully-tiled, three piece bathroom (off half-landing), with a corner bath and an electric shower over, creates the perfect ambience in which to unwind. The specification includes gas central heating, double glazing and a security alarm system for additional peace of mind.
