This stylish split-level apartment is on the first and second floor of a beautiful detached Victorian conversion, which itself sits on a sought-after road, close to the town centre and the open green spaces of Dunorlan Park.
The apartment's private front door opens into a graceful entrance hallway whose elegant décor and generous proportions give a nod to the building's Victorian heritage and features. It has ample room to double as a dining space.
The elegant living room is a very inviting space with its large window with panelling beneath, wooden flooring, alcove shelving and handsome fireplace with wood burning stove. There is plenty of room for deep sofas making it the perfect space to relax and entertain in.
Next door the kitchen/breakfast room is a visual delight as it is beautifully finished and fully equipped. Light bounces off the quartz worktops and the wooden central island has space for 4 bar stools. Deep pan drawers and larder cupboards are a cook's dream and the warm wooden flooring contrasts beautifully with the neutral units that wrap around the room housing integrated appliances. The dual aspect windows brighten the room with an indented run of units and a butler sink adding character.
Opposite, bedroom four, which is currently set up as a home office, has French doors that open onto an enclosed and decked sit on balcony, perfect for your morning coffee. With the garden kitchen below, it would be easy to install a spiral staircase for easy access.
Bedroom three, which is a generous double, a cloakroom and a modern shower room complete the floor.
Climbing the stairs to the second floor there are two further bedrooms, both restful doubles with period features and large windows. Bedroom one benefits from a pretty fireplace and fitted wardrobes.
The bathroom opposite has mid height wall panelling and a free-standing roll top bath, which adds to the feeling of luxury that the room certainly delivers on.
A utility room with a deep storage space completes the floor.
The enclosed private west facing garden, at the rear, has been well thought out and delivers on every level with a paved terrace with fitted seating, a fantastic outdoor kitchen with bar, a neat lawned area and even a vegetable patch. Stocked flower beds and shrubbery dotted about add interest whilst a wooden shed offers storage. This sunny garden is fully enclosed by wooden fencing and mature trees and hedging which afford great privacy. There is off street parking to the front and a covered car port.
This home delivers a luxury lifestyle in a central location that is ready to move straight in and enjoy. It is also within easy reach of parkland, the town centre, mainline station with fast rail connections to central London and first-class schools. A must see!
