This beautiful double bay fronted Victorian home is arranged over three floors and offers versatile accommodation, with the opportunity to extend further into the loft.
A handsome red brick exterior is set back from the road behind a low brick wall with a mix of decorative tiling and planting behind. A tiled pathway entices you up to its canopied porch.
The entrance hallway, with useful under stair cupboards to keep the space clutter free, is bright and immaculate with the light flooding through its stained glass front door bouncing off its light oak flooring.
First on the right is the dining room which is effortlessly elegant with a deep bay window flooding the room with light and a traditional fireplace adding warmth and character in the colder months.
Conveniently placed next door is the well-designed kitchen which offers an abundance of cream cabinetry which contrasts beautifully with the warm wooden countertops. There is ample space for appliances and a monochrome floor, exposed brick chimney breast and a large window make the space a cook's delight.
Behind is the living room, which is an exceptionally welcoming space with stylish décor, alcove cabinets and bookshelves and a classic fireplace. Two large windows bring in light and garden views in equal measure and there is plenty of room for sofas, making it perfect for family living and entertaining.
Stairs take you down to the lower ground floor which has its own separate entrance giving you the opportunity to blend working and living spaces to deliver flexibility where needed.
A beautifully presented home office at the rear with French doors opening into the garden could easily double as an additional bedroom, with the convenience of a shower room next door. Beyond is a further versatile space that could be another office space, bedroom or gym.
A deep walk-in storage cupboard and a large utility room with an additional sink, fitted storage cupboards and a door to give external access are very useful additions.
Climbing the carpeted stairs to the first floor there are three double bedrooms, all with large windows and immaculate décor. The principal bedroom at the front extends the width of the house and its décor, two windows, one a deep bay, and graceful proportions give a very tranquil feeling.
Across the landing is the large family bathroom with a double ended roll top bath sat in a tiled and panelled enclosure with a separate shower cubicle, vanity unit and lots of fitted storage. A side aspect window reflects light off its white fittings and contemporary tiles for a soothing bathing experience.
Outside the delightful garden is thoughtfully planted to deliver privacy and bursts of colour all year round. It is cleverly paved, making it low maintenance and the perfect space for alfresco dining. Stocked flower beds, a raised pond and a decked corner terrace with pergola add interest and it is fully enclosed, offering a safe sanctuary for pets and children.
A pretty summer house offers shade from the sun or warmth in the colder months and could easily double as a home office or children's playroom.
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!
