Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Staveley Lodge is an utterly beautiful and imposing Edwardian property, tucked away within a private un-adopted cul-de-sac of prestigious period properties.
There is more beyond the attractive facade than initially meets the eye with over 2700 square feet of accommodation, retaining beautiful features that include ceiling roses and original corbels.
Formerly a six bedroom property, two of the larger bedrooms were reconfigured into four, and this substantial family home now provides eight bedrooms. When dividing the bedrooms, the vendors were mindful of keeping the original cornicing intact and have carefully worked around it. Therefore if required, the bedrooms can easily be changed back without disturbing the period features.
Accommodation is arranged over three floors with four well proportioned reception rooms, kitchen, downstairs wet-room and a separate WC all to the ground floor.
An attractive balustrade stairwell leads to the first floor where you will find five bedrooms, two bathrooms, shower room and a separate WC.
The second floor then provides three further bedrooms and a bathroom; perhaps an ideal floor for staying guests?
Externally the property enjoys a 93ft rear garden with a good degree of privacy an access to a brick built outbuilding/studio. This outbuilding has power and light as well as WC facilities and would be a perfect area for those who work from home.
Although in need of improvement and updating, this link-detached property presents a wonderful and rare opportunity for somebody to stamp their own mark on and create that dream family home.
