Set back from the road by a low wall with rose bushes peeping behind, this home`s handsome red brick exterior and pretty bay windows provide plenty of kerb appeal.
A smart front door to the side of the house welcomes you into a light and airy hall of Victorian proportions. A useful storage cupboard with room for coats and shoes keeps the immaculate space clutter free.
To your right, at the front of the house, is the spacious living room. It is flooded with light from the generous bay window and has plenty of room for deep sofas to curl up in, in front of the wood burning stove.
Across the hallway is the dining room whose high ceiling, period detailing and fireplace adds warmth and charm to dining experiences.
Heading through the doorway at the rear you arrive in the kitchen. This stylish kitchen has plenty of storage, fitted units, integrated appliances and access to the garden and bathroom at the rear.
The first floor offers a bright and spacious landing with two large bedrooms leading off it, the second with a beautiful bay window and period fireplace. The master bedroom boasts a separate dressing area and a modernised en-suite shower room fitted with impeccable taste with walk in shower cubicle.
The second floor has a further delightful room with eaves storage space and rear aspect window drawing light into the room. It is already a very usable space but has the added benefit of development potential.
This exceptional family home has the advantage of a lovely low maintenance garden that is accessed directly off the kitchen. It is laid mainly to lawn with a raised decked platform at the rear, perfect for relaxing in the summer months and evening entertainment.
Prospect Road is superbly located for a host of popular nurseries, primary, secondary and grammar schools. It is also close to all of Southborough`s local amenities and is well served for leisure facilities and transport links.
This property couldn`t feel more homely, its thoughtfully designed and stylish interior have sympathetically transformed a Victorian property into a sophisticated family home. A must see!
