SOLD BY FLYING FISH PROPERTIES This home`s tardis like interior creates a versatile and spacious style of living that certainly does not disappoint.
It combines open plan living with period details and additional living space delivering on both charm and practical modern day family living.
The pretty stained glass in the front entrance door dapples the hallway and rooms beyond with coloured light.
A useful shower room is on your right with a walk in shower enclosure preventing the need to wait in line in the mornings for the bathroom.
Straight ahead is the large open plan living room, dining room that stretches the width of the house. Its two rear windows draw light into the room in the day while a majestic stone fireplace surround frames the large wood burner stove that warms the room by night.
At the front of the house is a second reception room or third bedroom, depending on your needs, which draws in plenty of light from its dual aspect windows. It also has an impressive period fireplace for cosy evenings in.
The well separated kitchen forms an open U space at the far end of the dining, living room enabling you to chat to friends and family as you prepare dinner. Plenty of bespoke wooden units topped with polished black granite surfaces are separated by the range oven. The wooden floor and mirrored wall above an imaginative wicker drawer unit add a feeling of space and warmth whilst the triple window and part glazed door leading out onto the terrace flood it with light.
A flight of stairs at the rear of the dining room draw you down to a hidden gem of a room. With natural light, a wall width of cupboards and a sink it could be usefully used as a utility. Why stop there though as it is large enough to house gym equipment and could even double as a kids` play room.
To the first floor are two bedrooms with built in wardrobes separated by a split landing. Both are light and decorated in neutral tones with the master bedroom enjoying a handsome period fireplace that makes it a romantic space.
A stylish and contemporary bathroom with high quality finish completes the floor.
Just when you thought there was no more a loft ladder entices you upwards to a pretty loft space with an exposed brick wall and a window drawing light into the room.
As with the house, when you enter the neat and low maintenance rear court yard you should expect the unexpected. Not only is there plenty of space for alfresco dining and entertaining but a detached brick garden studio adds another dimension. With electrics, a cloakroom and cupboarding it is perfect for a games room or home office but it really could be whatever sanctuary you choose it to be.
This home is perfectly positioned close to local shops, sought after schools and excellent transport links and with living space that keeps on giving, it is perfect for a professional couple or a growing family.
