Full description

This property, and its 'twin' North Lodge, were built in 1906, and were two of the first houses built in Shirley Road. The house has had very few owners since, with only one change of owners since 1964. The current owners have maintained and improved the house over nearly 20 years, retaining all original features and reinstating others wherever possible. As a result there is an abundance of beautiful Edwardian stained glass, plus mostly original woodwork, Edwardian conservatory, pine doors remain. The loft conversion creates a vast living space with an en-suite cloakroom and shower. The kitchen/breakfast room was extended and offers a huge, bright living area, with sets of double French doors to the patio and garden. There is a utility area, and also a bright cloakroom to the side. The wide, and spacious hall leads to the two other reception rooms, a lounge and a family room, both featuring open fires and one featuring a 'Belgian Rouge' Edwardian marble fireplace. The first floor spacious landing leads to four good-sized bedrooms and a family bathroom. The wide landing leads you up to the converted loft via a staircase which was custom-made to match the existing staircase's banisters and balustrades. The rear garden extends to approximately 160' with a small shed, a larger one that can be used as a Summer House, a patio area and a pond. To the side of the property there is a garage, and off-street parking for 2/3 cars to the front of the house.

What the Owner says:

We've loved this property since 1993, as had our predecessors since 1964! Like them, we've brought up our family here, enjoying loads of space to spread out, (especially the loft and garden,) and always feeling safe and protected. We love the Edwardian features, especially the beautiful stained glass all round the house. We've researched our house's history and have several pre-war photos.

We celebrated this property's 100th birthday in 2006 with a garden party with all our lovely neighbours. We're moving to the coast but will never forget our wonderful years in this property.
