Description

11 Windmill Road is a two storey detached house built in 1922 of harled brick construction under pitched tiled roofs.

The house was bought by the present owner in 2006 and with a great deal of creativity it has been completely remodelled and upgraded. The works included full re-roofing, re-plumbing, re-wiring and installing a new central heating system. Timber treatments, external wall improvements and loft insulation were carried out. The finishes were upgraded with a new kitchen, bathrooms, doors, floors and fireplaces.

The remodelled house is a highly functional and practical home with large and impressive rooms. To obtain a measure of rich ambiance, quality materials and fixtures are notable throughout the house. Special features include the entrance hall, the drawing room which runs the full depth of the west of the house and a superb new kitchen / breakfast room. The dining room is divided from the reception hall by a glass wall which provides a sense of spaciousness and an abundance of light.
