Sophisticated and stylish, this Edwardian house oozes period charm whilst delivering a family friendly 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 with its square bay windows and part hung tiles.
A gravelled driveway sets it back from the road, with mature flowering planting and neat hedging to the sides.
A traditional tiled pathway is covered by a glazed roof that leads you up to the part glazed entrance door.
Stepping inside, the wide hallway certainly delivers the wow factor. A fabulous turning staircase, panelled walls, and warm wooden flooring contrast beautifully with the neutral décor, brightened by the door's glazing.
To the right, light pours into the family room through its square bay window with wooden flooring and a period fireplace adding character. It offers the perfect informal family space or playroom for the children.
Next door is the snug, currently set up as a music room. It is a very versatile space and with access into an en suite shower room it could easily double as a guest bedroom.
At the far end of the hallway is the elegant living room. It is an exceptionally welcoming space with unique windows, a period fireplace surround with integral mirror, and wooden flooring. There is plenty of space for family sofas.
A part glazed door to the side opens into the home office with a monochrome tiled floor and a large window to brighten the space.
Returning to the hallway stairs lead you down to a split landing with access into the large utility room with an additional sink for muddy boots and paws, space and plumbing for appliances as well as plenty of room for extra storage. There is access into the useful guest cloakroom too.
A further half set of stairs lead you to the lower ground floor's fantastic kitchen/breakfast/dining room which opens onto the wide decked sun terrace.
The stylish kitchen/breakfast room's glossy white cabinetry contrast with its black Quartz work tops and warm wooden flooring. The space is beautifully finished and fully equipped, as you would expect from a house of this quality, with integrated Smeg and Siemens appliances.
To the rear is the generous dining area with space for a large table and chairs in front of its angled windows and glazed door, offering garden views as you dine. There is a seating area to the side in front of a wood burning stove with an original fire surround with shelving and an integral mirror as a focal point for decorative items.
Climbing the stairs to the first floor there are three immaculate bedrooms, two of which are generous doubles.
The principal bedroom at the rear is a visual delight with graceful proportions that give a very tranquil feeling. It extends the width of the house, and its windows flood the room with natural light. A part glazed door opens onto a sit on balcony delivering spectacular roof and tree top views. Fitted wardrobes and an en suite shower room add to the feeling of luxury that the room certainly delivers.
Along the landing there is a large family bathroom with a sumptuous double ended bath and a separate shower cubicle. Side aspect windows reflect light off its fittings and contemporary tiles for a soothing bathing experience.
Bedroom two at the rear also enjoys a bay window, bringing in street views, and the fifth bedroom is currently used for home fitness.
Up a further flight of stairs to the second floor there are two more bedrooms, the larger of which benefits from a deep eaves cupboard offering wonderful storage.
Outside the garden is fully enclosed offering a sanctuary for children and pets whilst a wide decked terrace at the rear of the house, with a covered seating recess, is perfect for alfresco dining. Steps lead down to an area of lawn edged by wooden fencing and mature planting giving a leafy feel and affording great privacy. There is a boiler room with space for storage and side street access too.
This elegant Edwardian house is breath takingly beautiful, both inside and out. It is also a short walk from the mainline station, the town centre and first class grammar schools. A must see!
