This beautiful double bay fronted home oozes Victorian charm whilst delivering a family friendly contemporary style of living.
The owner has beautifully blended modern finishes with traditional features to create a flawlessly finished house offering a luxury family lifestyle that you could move straight in and enjoy.
The beauty of this home is immediately apparent as you approach. A low brick wall with railings above sets it back from the road, with neat box hedging and bay trees sat behind.
A smart tiled pathway leads you up to the covered entrance door which welcomes you into its immaculate hallway, brightened by the door's pretty decorative glazing.
The entrance hallway has traditionally tiled flooring with underfloor heating and stylish under stair fitted cabinetry, to keep the space clutter free.
To the right, light pours into the elegant living room through its shuttered bay window overlooking the residential street. It is an exceptionally welcoming space with stylish décor, walnut wooden flooring and a fireplace to add character and warmth in the colder months.
Next door is the stylish kitchen/breakfast room with bespoke painted oak cabinetry contrasting with Caesarstone Quartz work tops and warm oak wooden flooring. It is beautifully finished and fully equipped, as you would expect from a house of this quality, with integrated Miele and Siemens appliances. Wall mounted Sonos speakers add to your enjoyment while there is space for a table and chairs to sit at to enjoy your morning coffee. A deep walk-in pantry with shelving provides lots of storage space and a side aspect door gives access into the garden.
To the rear is the newly fitted cloakroom with utility facilities.
At the end of the hallway is the dining room, which is a visual delight, its deep bay window benefitting from a fitted window seat with storage, to relax on and enjoy the garden views. Farrow and Ball décor compliments the oak wooden flooring while an opening in the chimney breast cleverly offers storage and a focal point for decorative items.
Climbing the Roger Oates carpeted stairs to the first floor there are three immaculate bedrooms, all generous doubles. The bedroom at the front extends the width of the house and its windows, one a deep bay, flood the room with natural light.
Bedroom three at the rear also enjoys a bay window, bringing in garden views, and the fourth bedroom is currently set up as a home office with a wonderful array of bespoke fitted office furniture.
Across the landing is the chic family bathroom with a separate bath and glazed frameless shower cubicle. Dual aspect windows reflect light off its fittings and contemporary tiles for a soothing bathing experience.
Up a further flight of stairs to the second floor is the beautiful principal bedroom suite, with graceful proportions that give a very tranquil feeling. Soothing tones and a contemporary en-suite, with sliding doors to either conceal it or open the view to the rear, make it a restful retreat. A deep walk-in wardrobe with hanging rails and a fitted triple wardrobe with hanging rails, drawers and shelving offer wonderful storage.
Outside the pretty garden is fully enclosed offering a sanctuary for children and pets whilst a paved terrace at the rear of the house is perfect for alfresco dining. It has been beautifully and thoughtfully planted with mature stocked flower beds, an area of easily maintained artificial grass and a further paved terrace to the rear. Perimeter wooden fencing is fronted by an array of bamboo, apple and olive trees which afford great privacy, and a beautiful hydrangea climbs up the back of the house. There is a shed for storage and side street access too.
This fabulous period home is a short walk from first class grammar schools and mainline stations making it perfect for families with professional needs. A must see!
