Home Report Value £725,000 - Conveniently positioned minutes from transport facilities and local amenities, 'Amisfield' is an impressive red sandstone, four/five detached period villa, which has been in the same ownership since 1992 and was originally constructed around 1907. Internally, the property has been comprehensively redesigned and reworked in recent years and now offers incredibly versatile family accommodation over three substantial levels, with the added benefit of a gymnasium, fitness suite, cinema room and observatory!
‘Amisfield’ is as unique as it is beautiful! The traditional building has been carefully maintained both internally and externally, to create fantastic and flexible accommodation, which only a viewing will qualify. The bespoke interior offers sophisticated living space, with exquisite, restored period detailing including ornate cornicing and rose work, fireplaces and skirtings, which is inherent with a home of this age and character. Externally, there are “in & out” double gates, which lead to a block paviored
driveway and hard standing area. This leads to a detached double garage (with electric door). Trees fringe the front gardens and
provide good privacy and seclusion. The fully enclosed rear garden is laid mainly to grass, broadly level and again fringed with mature evergreens, providing privacy, seclusion and amenity. There are sun-trap areas, which are suitable for garden entertaining, sun lounging and alfresco dining.
The subjects are entered via twin leaf storm doors to a entrance vestibule. A further glazed timber door leads through to a large welcoming reception hallway, with staircase off to the upper landing and impressive pillars, feature fireplace and a feature bay window overlooking the front gardens. A handy cloakroom/wc and a laundry/utility room are located off the hallway. The drawing room (split into two sections) is of palatial proportions with both high ceilings and ceiling cornicing. The side and rear bay windows help flood the room with natural light and the two feature fireplaces are the key focal point in each section. A separate and formal dining room is also located on the ground floor and further benefits from a bay window to the rear aspect and a feature fireplace. The kitchen/diner has been 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 an integrated double oven, hob, extractor hood, microwave & dishwasher. It also offers very interesting views over the front garden and the surrounding area. There is ample space for a table and chairs for more informal dining with friends and family and this zone is certain to become the very ‘heart’ of the home. Access can be gained from here into the garden/sun room (with storage facilities), which is a great spot for simply relaxing and enjoying views over the rear garden.
The original staircase leads to first floor level revealing four/five substantial bedrooms, a fantastic family bathroom and a fitness/conditioning suite with a fitted steam room, sun room and boiler room. The master bedroom is the last word in luxury, with a range of wardrobes and dual aspect windows offering tremendous views into the distance. This room further benefits from an ensuite wc. The remaining bedrooms have storage facilities and space for additional freestanding furniture if required. The guest suite also has its own en-suite wc. The five piece bathroom, with a sunken bath & high-tech shower cubicle, creates the perfect ambience in which to unwind. There is also a unique cinema room on this level, which is bound to be popular with all members of the family, which also benefits from front stalls (with original cinema seating) and upper circle viewing areas. A number of rooms on this level could be converted back into bedrooms if desired.
A further staircase to second floor level reveals a fantastic family/games room, which has ample space for a snooker table and has the additional luxury of a sports/entertainment bar. Access can be gained from here into the separate gymnasium, which has a large velux window offering tremendous views into the distance.
From the gymnasium, a retractable ladder leads to an equipped observatory with a roof opening system allowing for comfortable viewing of the moon and stars of the night skies.
The specification includes gas central heating, double glazing and a security alarm & cctv system for additional peace of mind and comfort.
