Tenure: Freehold

In an elevated position and in a sought after location, stands this substantial, detached, five-bedroom villa, with a double garage.

Originally constructed in 1840 it began as two semi-detached homes for managers of the Great Western Railway, it was later owned by the Earl of Devonshire. This property is now a single, family home, with wonderful elevated views and a low-maintenance courtyard garden. It has retained many of its original features including fireplaces, high ceilings with ornate ceiling roses, and part panelled walls.

A white iron gate marks the boundary of this wonderful property, a few steps and a paved path leads up beneath the beautiful magnolia tree, to the entrance at the side of the porch. With a hard wearing and decorative tiled flooring, this space is perfect for leaving the wellington boots and coat when returning from a walk on a winters day. The entrance hall has a high ceiling, tiled floor and a decorative arch makes a lovely feature. A staircase rises to the first floor and doors lead into the living room, dining room, snug and study. The living room is spacious and light with a stripped wooden floor and decorative coving and a cast iron fireplace with an elegant marble mantel makes a fabulous focal point. Cupboards are fitted in the recesses at the sides of the chimney breast creating useful storage. The dining room is carpeted, with a high ceiling and decorative rose and another marble fireplace. A wonderful setting for a dinner party. The snug with its carpeted floor, green walls and contrasting brilliant-white skirting, door and ceiling, feels warm and comfortable and is used by the current owners as a TV room. A nice feature is the built-in cocktail cabinet with feature lighting.

Opposite is the study, which is tastefully decorated and has a lovely, exposed-brick feature wall. To the rear of the hallway a couple of steps lead down past an under-stairs storage cupboard into the kitchen and orangery-style breakfast room. This is a fabulous room, with oak-veneer laminate flooring, solid wood worktops with white-tiled splashbacks and a variety of white-fronted kitchen units with matching wall cabinets providing ample storage. A range cooker with five-burner hob, provides the cooking facilities and there is a contemporary stainless steel and glass extractor hood above. There is also an integrated dishwasher hidden away amongst the modern units. The incredibly light and airy breakfast room is open-plan to the kitchen, with more oak-veneer flooring. Double patio doors open out into the courtyard, the vaulted glass ceiling allows the light to pour in and at over fifteen feet in length it can easily accommodate a table and seating for even the largest of families. A fabulous, informal dining space, whatever the time of day. Steps lead from the kitchen to a lobby with a barn-style door to the garden and, to the sides, a good sized utility room with worktops, a sink with drainer and plumbing for white goods. Opposite is a shower room, with electric shower, modern basin, with decorative mosaic tiling behind and a WC.

Upstairs the large landing gives access to a family bathroom and five bedrooms. The master bedroom is a spacious double, it has a modern ensuite shower room, with sparkly black floor tiles and white-tiled walls with a contrasting blue band, containing a large shower, basin and WC. It has splendid double aspect views over the town and beyond. The split level landing leads down to the stylishly decorated guest bedroom, another spacious double with lots of natural light from the dual aspect windows. It has a modern ensuite shower room with shower, WC and basin and white-marble effect floor tiles. The three remaining bedrooms are all doubles, with fresh, stylish decoration and storage built into the chimney recesses. The family bathroom with a large bath, separate shower, basin and WC, and beautiful brown marble-effect tiling looks wonderful gives a luxurious feel.

Outside, the porch is afforded some shade by a beautiful magnolia tree and a paved pathway leads around the perimeter of the property. An area of lawn has an adjacent paved patio with a bench seat, a perfect for enjoying the peace and quiet with a book or a cup of tea. Another secluded patio bordered by a laurel bush makes an another relaxation spot, with far reaching views and to the rear the walled courtyard widens and there are raised stone beds of mature plants and shrubs. Decorative brick steps give access to an expanse of paving, with a rear door to the double garage and to a large area of decking. A lovely space, it has a timber balustrade and fuchsias, along the boundary wall, provide a splash of colour. Raised beds to the rear are filled with a variety of leafy shrubs, plants and bushes, adding to the privacy and seclusion of this fabulous space. The double garage is accessed via the adjacent road and there is parking for at least one additional car on the driveway to the front of the garage.

What the owners loves most:
"The house never fails to impress visitors and it is so spacious. It is a completely versatile space for any occasion".

Bear in mind..
The property is very central, so the garden is smaller but very manageable.
