Property Description

Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Situated on the favoured southern side of Humberston Avenue and standing in a rear position within grounds of around 0.4 of an acre this deceptively spacious detached residence provides copious space for the discerning purchaser. In the Agents opinion one of its greatest assets is the flexibility of layout and use that it offers with several rooms on the ground floor being eminently suitable as either bedrooms or for daytime usage.

In essence the property is a two storey house although the majority of the accommodation is at ground floor level. A larger family could quite easily create five bedrooms in total (three down and two up) or it could retain its current layout with a games room, study etc. The property has the benefit of gas central heating (this being underfloor at ground floor level) uPVC framed double glazing and a comprehensive alarm system including security cameras.

The house is approached via a long gated driveway off Humberston Avenue and principal features of the accommodation include a welcoming ‘T’ shaped hallway (which forms the spine of the ground floor giving access to all principal rooms) the lovely Lounge with its limestone firesurround and a linked Sun Room which enjoys delightful views of the rear garden. There is a formal Dining Room with French doors opening to the breathtaking ‘L’ shaped Conservatory which measures 26’6” in length and provides space for dining and relaxing. There is a Games Room (currently housing a quarter size snooker table) a large Study (or alternative Dining Room) and the Richard Sutton Breakfast Kitchen is a pleasure to see with its comprehensive range of antique cream units, granite worksurfaces and Britannia range cooker. A useful Utility Room is positioned adjacent to the Breakfast Kitchen whilst the ground floor also includes the Master Bedroom (with cream wardrobes and en-suite Shower Room) and the Family Bathroom which is beautifully appointed with a white suite including a corner positioned bath and separate shower cubicle.

At first floor level there are two undeniably huge Bedrooms, (with rear dormer windows overlooking the garden) and an excellent second Bathroom, again with a white suite including a bath and a shower cubicle. Subject to obtaining any necessary permission these bedrooms are possibly large enough for subdivision to create even more accommodation if required.

To the front of the house the grounds are block paved for the parking of several vehicles and this area serves as a driveway approach to the Double Garage which also benefits from a first floor storage/hobby area. The rear gardens are extensive, principally lawned and enhanced by specimen shrubs, a fountain, a pond and a paved terrace. Allotments are located beyond the rear boundary thereby minimising the risk of ever being built behind, unlike some other Humberston Avenue properties.

The property falls within the catchment of well regarded schools including the Humberston Academy and local shopping facilities are available in both New Waltham and Humberston.

All in all this is a rather special home which can only be fully appreciated by a full internal viewing. The flexibility and space on offer sets it apart from many others and discerning potential purchasers are advised to visit without delay. EPC Rating - C
