Property Details -

To the ground floor there is an enclosed storm porch which leads into the large welcoming entrance hall which has retained its beautiful, original wood panelling and balustrades, along with engineered wood flooring and under-stairs WC. The first reception is to the right and is a generous room with large bay window, feature fireplace with wooden mantle, built in shelving and with original picture rails and coving retained.

Arguably the highlight of this quite stunning property is the open-plan kitchen/diner. This space has been carefully re-configured and extended by the current owners; featuring a bespoke kitchen with distinctive units and island/breakfast bar, comfortable dining space with side aspect window, and leading to a lounge space at the rear which features a large window and patio doors leading to the garden.

There is a separate utility room which houses the boiler and has base and wall units and a sink. Lastly, there is a third reception room which is currently being utilised as a gym, but could equally be used as a home office, play room or snug.

On the first floor there are three bedrooms, plus the family bathroom, and on the landing there is an ornate wooden panel. The master, situated at the front of the property is generous, with a sunny aspect and boasts a feature fireplace and a walk-in wardrobe. The second bedroom is also a large double and offers lovely views of the rear garden, along with an attractive cast iron fireplace. The bathroom is large and features a four-piece suite including walk-in shower enclosure, bath, basin, WC, heated towel rail and airing cupboard. Décor is immaculate throughout.

The third floor features two further bedrooms, both of which are dual aspect and benefit from plentiful natural light and boasting spectacular views along with eaves storage, a three-piece shower room with walk-in shower enclosure and finally a deceptively spacious storage space situated off the landing.

Externally, the property has off-street parking, low-maintenance front garden, and to the rear a well-sized mature rear garden which features a patio leading to a lawned area and houses a workshop shed. From here is access to a sizeable under-croft storage space.

Viewings strictly by appointment.
