Conveniently positioned minutes from transport facilities and local amenities, a period blond sandstone, five-bedroom, detached villa, originally dating from around 1900.
Internally, the property offers versatile family accommodation within two public rooms and five bedrooms, formed over two substantial levels. This property is as unique as it is beautiful. The traditional building offers fantastic and flexible accommodation, which only a viewing will qualify. The interior offers sophisticated living space, with exquisite period detailing including ornate cornicing, rose work and skirtings, which is inherent with a home of this age and character. The property is surrounded by private gardens, mainly lawned and screened by a wide variety of mature trees. The gardens have been designed to provide seasonal colour. There is a driveway to the front providing off road parking for a number of vehicles, leading to a single attached garage (with power and light).
The property requires a moderate level of re-decoration and upgrading but has been competitively priced to realise an early sale. A prospective purchaser has a blank canvas to design this forever home to their own taste and style and add immediate value. Once completed, the property will offer well-proportioned room sizes, with an abundance of living space, making this a super acquisition for a variety of buyers looking for a rarely available property in a quality location.
The subjects are entered via twin leaf storm doors to a private entrance vestibule. Further glazed timber door leads through to a large welcoming reception hallway, with staircase off to the upper landing and access to all ground floor apartments. There is a very handy wet-room (with understairs storage) located off the cloaks cupboard.
The lounge is of palatial proportions with both high ceilings and intricate ceiling cornicing. The bay window to the front aspect floods the room with natural light and the room has a range of furniture configurations. A laundry room is located off this room, is plumbed for a washing machine and has a separate wash hand basin. This is the perfect spot to store jackets and wellingtons as a personal door opens directly into the rear garden. A separate dining room with a bay window to the front aspect offers similar views to that of the lounge. The kitchen/breakfast room has been fitted to include a range of floor and wall mounted units, with a work surface, which provides a fashionable and efficient workspace. It further benefits from an integrated oven, hob, extractor hood, microwave and dishwasher and has space for an upright fridge freezer. This zone is certain to become the very ‘heart’ of the home. Access can be gained from here into the utility room, which has a personal door into the garage.
The original staircase leads to first-floor level revealing five substantial bedrooms, a fantastic family bathroom and a separate shower-room. The master bedroom is the last word in luxury with a bay window offering tremendous views into the distance. The remaining bedrooms all have space for additional free standing furniture if required. The fifth bedroom is currently being used as a very comfortable family room. Access to the loft is gained from here and the space that exists would be ideal for conversion into further living accommodation (stpp). The three-piece bathroom, with a roll-top bath, creates the perfect ambience in which to unwind. There is also a (separate) fully-tiled shower-room. An ornate stained-glass window provides a stunning focal point from the landing.
The specification includes gas central heating and original sash windows (some with secondary glazing) for additional peace of mind and comfort.
