Full description

A TRULY STUNNING GRADE II LISTED EDWARDIAN DETACHED RESIDENCE LOCATED WITHIN A LOCAL CONSERVATION AREA, having been sympathetically modernised by the current owners to provide a home of distinction and quality. Built in 1908 by Sir Bannister Fletcher (president of the Royal Institute of British Architects), this delightful home sits prominently on a beautiful plot of approximately 0.75 acres. This grand detached Edwardian dwelling has been planned and extended over time to provide the perfect family home. It is a stunning example of a modernisation programme incorporating the aesthetic elements of a period Edwardian property with high ceilings, beautiful period features, wooden flooring and generous proportions throughout. Modern day luxuries blend in seamlessly to incorporate a wonderful hand crafted kitchen breakfast room which is filled with light from above with an electric skylight and is fitted with an Aga, modern integrated appliances and stunning Brazilian granite work surface. Further ground floor accommodation provides a delightful triple aspect drawing room which overlooks the beautifully maintained and private rear gardens, a well-proportioned family room with 108 cinema screen, dining room to rear elevation with a spiral wine cellar and fully equipped utility room. The bright and spacious first and second floors provide versatile family accommodation providing 6 bedrooms (one fitted as a study), 3 luxurious bathrooms (one en-suite to the principal bedroom) and a dedicated laundry room.

Outside: The plot itself is extremely wide and provides stunning front and rear gardens which include various ponds and water features, an all-weather tennis court, a Naturalistic heated swimming pool with an air source heat pump, its own changing facilities and a Larchwood sun area.

For teenagers, Tiverton also provides the perfect getaway, a lovely summer house which is currently used as a gym/games room. To the front aspect set back from the road by natural screening the house further benefits from off street parking for several vehicles on the gravel driveway.
